Read More

Your first country concert is a big deal! Memories, friends, and hit tunes from your favorite country singers are all great things to look forward to! While you might have planned your ticket purchase and how you’re getting there, you may be wondering what your first country concert outfit should be! At Sheplers Western Wear we offer so many different styles to choose from, but if you don’t know where to start, our staff share what to wear to a country music concert.

Denim – The Classic Choice

Denim shorts or pants are the classic choice for a country concert outfit. Whether you like a skinny or flared fit, high-rise or low-rise, you can’t go wrong with a pair of jeans. The rule of thumb at a country concert, though, is to go for a lighter wash jean as opposed to a dark wash like navy or black. For women we recommend the Levi Women’s Sea Daisy Drive Classic Crop Jeans – Cropped Leg to show off your cute boots and for men we recommend the classic Wrangler jeans in light blue.

Jackets – To Keep Warm

Your first country concert outfit should include a leather jacket in the winter so you can bundle up and stay warm. For milder weather, try a denim jacket with a beautiful embroidery. If you want to really add some pizazz, go for a fringe jacket! Aside from the style factor, just think of all the Boomerang possibilities.

Accessories – Less is More

Accessorize your first country concert outfit to take it to the next level. If you’re going to an outdoor country concert, a great watch or the perfect sunglasses are all you need. Keep a small fragrance in your purse to stay refreshed. If you’re going to an arena concert, style it up with a statement necklace or statement earrings with a little sparkle. Add a pretty silver hairclip to manage those lochs.

Saddle Up – Cowboy Boots Are a Must

At any country concert, you can never go wrong with a fantastic pair of cowboy boots. They are the classic choice and the ultimate must-wear when rocking to your favorite songs. Cowboy boots tie your first country concert outfit together, which is why they are the last thing to put on before you have the time of your life.

One Last Thing

Each outfit is unique to each person. Your first country concert out is worth a splurge, so go big on your outfit, but also go big on hair and makeup. Doll yourself up with a classic red lip like Taylor Swift or poof the hair like Dolly Parton. A country music concert is a time to enjoy yourself and sing along to all your favorite tunes. Just make sure to stay hydrated, snap a few pictures, and get ready to fall in love with the live country music concert experience.

Wearing cowboy boots in the summer – yea or nay? While some people may be quick to jump in and say nay, at Sheplers Western Wear we wholeheartedly disagree. We know that cowboy boots can be worn all year round and still be fashionable. You just need to follow a few simple tips.

Summer Outfit Ideas with Cowboy Boots

Whether you are dying to wear your new pair of boots or you just hate wearing flip flops, we have all the summer cowboy boots you need as well as a few outfit ideas to wear with them.

When it comes to summer boots, a shorter boot or bootie may be a good choice. They tend to feel lighter so your feet do not get so hot under the intense summer sun. We recommend the Dingo Women’s Floral Tooled Knotted Strap Booties to start. Because its tan color can match almost any outfit, this everyday boot can be paired with a sun dress, skirt, shorts, or a pair of jeans at night. Once you have an everyday pair, go for a statement pair next.

If you want to break out your standard cowboy boots in the summer, match them with a summer Miss Me dress. These dresses are perfect for a summer night out and a pair of cute cowgirl boots will make you stand out in the best way. Try a plain dress with a fun summer boot that really pops.

For a great casual outfit and a sure way to rock cowboy boots in the summer, throw on a pair of jean shorts and a sleeveless top to draw attention to your boots. Try a pair of boots with fringe, you can never go wrong with fringe. You can wear this for anything from a night out line dancing to a day of running errands. Don’t forget a statement necklace or pair of earrings to really complete the look. You can always swap out those shorts for jeans as well.

Overalls are back in style. If you are daring enough to try out this trend (we recommend it), then you need to finish this outfit with a good pair of summer cowboy boots. Wear short overalls and a cute top and throw on some booties to match. Overalls are denim after all, and nothing goes better with denim than a solid pair of cowboy boots.

For more summer outfit ideas with cowboy boots, shop our country style clothing store. We have everything from dresses to accessories as well as a large assortment of boots that could quickly fill up your closet.

Biggest Rodeos in The US You Can’t Miss

If you are looking for a genuine country experience, then these rodeos are a must see. At Sheplers Western Wear, we have a few recommendations.

Prescott Frontier Days

When: July 1 – 7

Where: Prescott, Arizona

About: Also known as the World’s Oldest Rodeo, Prescott Frontier Days first started in 1888. The event lasts for eight days, so there is plenty of rodeo to see when it fits your schedule. You will witness numerous events with each performance including bull riding, steer wrestling, bareback, and barrel racing.

What to Wear: Because it claims to be the oldest rodeo in the world, we suggest a more traditional country getup. Think jeans or jean shorts, traditional cowgirl boots, and a cute top for her. Think jeans, a button-down, and of course a cowboy hat. Temperature can also drop a bit at night in this area, so if you tend to get cold easily, bring a jacket or wear sleeves that can be unrolled as the night goes on.

Pendleton Round-Up

When: September 7 – 14

Where: Pendleton, Oregon

About: The Pendleton Round-Up transforms the town into rodeo central. Not only will there be the rodeo itself, but the round-up includes a parade, live music, nightly shows, and a carnival.  It is a week’s worth of fun for the whole family.

What to Wear: While thinking about rodeo outfits, you need to take in to account the weather. Because Oregon is farther north, you will want to dress a little warmer, especially if you are not used to it. We suggest a long-sleeve western shirt for him and a fringe jacket for her so you are both stylish and warm.

Style Inspiration—Blake Shelton

You can’t talk about country music nowadays without referencing Mr. Blake Shelton. County music star legend, Blake Shelton, has taken the entertainment industry by storm with numerous hit singles since 2001, and an appearance on the popular TV show The Voice, all while rocking a causal and classy style of western cowboy clothing.

How to Dress Like Blake Shelton

We may not be able to help you get Blake Shelton’s voice or musical talents, but our western style clothing store can help you get Blake Shelton’s style. At Sheplers, we have the western wear and tips you need to look like Blake Shelton.

Western Wear Shirt

Western wear shirts are a default in Mr. Shelton’s wardrobe. His seems to prefer neutral colors, or a classic plaid western shirt with rolled sleeves. His simple style of shirts makes his wardrobe perfect for everything from the everyday routine of running errands to a walk on the red carpet. If you want to copy Blake Shelton’s style, start by loading up on these basic button-down shirts.

Jacket

Blake Shelton’s jacket is often what differentiates his outfit from formal to casual. On any regular day, you may find him walking around town in a classic men’s leather jacket on top of one of his many western wear shirts. For more formal occasions like award shows, he will top off his western shirt with a plain, and once again, neutral-colored suit jacket. The jacket is probably unbuttoned, and he may or may not sport a tie. If your closet is currently missing these essentials, a nice black suit jacket is a good start.

Jeans

Like many country icons, Black Shelton is almost always in a good pair of sturdy jeans. Even on the red carpet, Blake Shelton is not afraid to throw on a pair of jeans. Together his suit jacket and jeans complete his classy, but not too formal look. Check out our Wrangler jeans to find a style that will look good and last.

Complete the Look

At this point, it should come as no surprise that Blake Shelton keeps his wardrobe to a minimum. He may throw on a baseball cap for a day walking about. He doesn’t tend to go for the flashy accessories like some country music stars, but instead defaults to a classic pair of men’s cowboy boots and little else. At our cowboy boot store, we have an expansive selection so that you are sure to find a pair you will love.

Blake Shelton’s western style clothes are a perfect blend of classic comfort and minimalism. His focus on the essentials creates a timeless look good for various occasions. Check out our western store online to get Blake Shelton’s style for yourself.

Spring Cleaning Your County-Style Clothing

Spring Cleaning Your Closet: What Western Wear to Keep & Toss

Spring is here, and with it comes the familiar task of spring cleaning. As the weather warms up, it is time to crack open your window, air out your room, and get to work. While you’re at it, don’t forget spring cleaning your closest. When you first throw open your closet doors, it may seem a bit daunting. Western style clothes, cowboy boots, and western accessories are scattering throughout the small cavern, but as a western store online, we are here to help.

How to Clean Out Your Closet

The most daunting part of the spring cleaning of your closest is deciding what to keep and what to toss. At Sheplers, we have the tips you need to decide what western cowboy clothing should make the cut.

Cowboy Boots & Accessories

Tackle your shoes first, since they’re bulky and can take up a lot of space. It’s normal for cowboy boots to experience wear and tear, but if a good boot polishing kit doesn’t help, it may be time to face the facts and toss them. While it’s nice to have a good pair of steel toe work boots that are broken in, ones that are destroyed are an accident waiting to happen. If you have to (or just want to) buy new cowboy boots, we have thousands of styles to choose from to fit your every need with our cowboy boot store. We also have a guide for you on how to break in cowboy boots, so that they fit comfortably in no time. Western wear accessories should be thrown out if they are worn, broken, or visibly dirty.

 

Western Style Clothinglong sleeve mens western shirt

The next step to spring cleaning your closet is to go through your western style clothing. While a pair of men’s Wrangler jeans can last a long time, it’s time to toss them when new holes start to form and they become frayed, especially in the crotch area. Also check the sizing. If a pair of jeans doesn’t fit well, they’re not worth wearing. When it comes to western shirts or dresses, if you haven’t worn them in the past year, if they don’t fit well, or if they have holes or stains, they should be headed to the trash (or a donation center, if they’re in good shape). With women’s western wear, you can also factor in how in-style the clothing is. Western wear dresses that are from seasons ago may be worth getting rid of.

 

 

Most importantly, do not be afraid to toss anything out; you can always replace it with something, newer, better looking, and more comfortable. If your closet is looking a little empty from tossing out western wear that was old and worn, do not worry. At Sheplers, we have all of the country-style clothing that you could possibly need. From women’s fringe handbags to men’s leather jackets, we have you covered.
