4 Facts About Cowboys and Cowboy Style

The cowboy traditions date back much farther than just the cowboy style; though the clothing is very recognizable. There is a story behind everything that cowboys wear and a reason for it all. Sheplers knows cowboy style and has everything cowboys need to look their best and show their roots, as well as these interesting facts about cowboys and their style.

History

A cowboy is a cattle rustler, a cattle driver, and a rugged outdoors man. The traditional cowboy actually dates back to the Mexican vaquero, which is where the term “buckaroo” came from. Seems those early cowboys couldn’t quite get the pronunciation down pat. The Mexican cowboy hats were incorporated in the western cowboy style as well.

Cattle Drives

During cattle drives, a handful of cowboys (5-10) would move around 3,000 cattle for miles and miles; this practice has its origins in the meat industry. Cattle drives move slow because the cowboys didn’t want the cattle to be too thin when they arrived, which is why regular stops for grazing and rest are factored into the cattle drive.

Spurs

Cowboys had to earn their cowboy boot spurs through either a long cattle drive or a rodeo. Though spurs were always used, it was said that a cowboy earned his spurs by proving that he could do his job very well.

Cowboy Style

Back in the good ‘ole days, cowboys would wear the same clothes for weeks on end. In fact, that was what made denim so popular. Denim a resilient material and it doesn’t need much upkeep. The cowboy tradition of denim is one that has not ever faded out (pun intended) and is still seen on major fashion runways year after year.

Cowgirl Fashion Tips for Fall

Giddy up; the fall season is just around the corner and that means it is time to get into the cowgirl fall fashion look. Sheplers not only has all the clothes, cowgirl boots, and western accessories to keep you on trend, but we also have endless fashion tips for fall to keep your look fresh and trendy.

The Dress Shirt Look

Is it a long shirt or a short dress? Whatever it is, it is the look that southern stylists are talking about for fall. Cowgirls should keep long dress shirts loose and wear it with cut-off jeans or a pair of black leggings.

Colors

Dark colors are in this fall and in a big way. Look for dark denim tops and trendy black shirts this fall. Cowgirl fall fashion is all about dark browns and vibrant reds. Match with a black cowgirl hat on top and look stunning.

Accessories

Bohemian style accessories with the cowgirl look is a great way to spice up your wardrobe this fall. However, cowgirls keep it minimal. Stay away from a lot of bangles and loose jewelry. Sheplers’ cowgirl fashion tip for fall accessories: keep it simple!

Cowgirl Boots

Vibrant cowgirl boots on a darker outfit are perfect fall fashion. Or, wear a long shirt dress with classic brown or black cowgirl boots for a comfortable, fall cowgirl look. Medium toe boots are really in and part of the simple fall fashion.

How Not to Dress Your Kids for Labor Day

Read More

With Labor Day right around the corner, chances are that you have been invited to plenty of barbecues in order to celebrate the big day. Since school will have already started for most kids, chances are that they will have their fair share of new back-to-school clothes that you already bought for them from Sheplers. In order to not dirty up their nice new school clothes, check out this list from Sheplers for avoiding unwanted clothing messes and mishaps.

White

Even though this is technically the last day to wear white, the same rules don’t always apply to kids. Since kids can usually get away with wearing white well into the New Year, save white clothing for occasions other than barbecues. Think about it, do you really want to be worrying about them spilling ketchup on their brand new clothes the entire duration of the barbecue? Besides, this is the time for your kids to run around and have fun before the school year really hits the ground running.

Sandals

Chances are that your kids will be at a barbecue where they will have plenty of activities for everyone to take part in outside, so make sure that they are able to run around and have as fun much as possible by dressing them in the safest (and not to mention cutest) shoes possible. Opt for a pair of cowboy boots that will allow your kids to play for hours on end, as well as make them the cutest dressed kids at the party.

Sunscreen

Sure, sunscreen is always necessary when you are expecting to spend most of the day outdoors, but make sure that your kids don’t have their memories dampened of the fun they had by bringing home a sunburn. Let them pick out a cowboy hat from Sheplers that they will not want to take off the whole time that they are there.
