At Sheplers Stampede Western Wear, we have got the complete guide on how you can dress like Kenny Chesney.

Cowboy Hat

The quintessential staple in Kenny Chesney’s wardrobe: a leather cowboy hat. It’s the first step in completing your Kenny Chesney style. He is frequently spotted rocking either a white, tan, or black coboy hat. These cowboy hats are perfect to pair with any sleeveless shirt or blue jeans.

Jeans

No matter the season or the place, Kenny Chesney often wears denim blue jeans of all kinds; even on the beach. Strumming his guitar and staying cool, men’s blue jeans are a must if you are trying to dress like Kenny Chesney. Just make sure they aren’t to tight, Kenny Chesney prefers a relaxed fit compared to more form-fitting styles preferred by Tim McGraw and Luke Bryan.

T-Shirts

Comfortable and stylish, Kenny Chesney is always seen wearing a sleeveless shirt. While his laid-back style of cut off sleeves is not suitable for everyone, Kenny Chesney frequently sports a casual T-shirt on stage. He sticks to an almost neutral color palette, choosing colors such as gray, white, and navy blue. His simple style choices make it easy to recreate and usually pairs well with just about anything you can find, just keep it casual and skip the jacket for this one though.

Last, But Not Least – Boots

Of course, the country icon’s look wouldn’t be complete without a pair of cowboy boots to tie it all together. If you are trying to dress like Kenny Chesney, go for tan and rugged style country boots to complete the look. When Kenny Chesney is not touring though, he’s just barefoot on the beach.

Kenny Chesney is a great style inspiration if you want to keep it simple, you just need to know where to get all the country and western wear. Our affordable and stylish men’s styles will have you singing and rocking tunes as if you were country legend, Kenny Chesney, himself.

A good pair of blue jeans is a staple in everyone’s closet, and when you find a pair that is comfortable, fits well, and looks good, you never want to let them go. Unfortunately, from men’s wrangler jeans to a pair of Levi’s jeans for women, those denim pants will not last forever.

Luckily, there are some things you can to do help make those jeans last.

 Tips to Make Your Jeans Last Longer

At Sheplers Western Wear, we are sharing our secrets on how to make jeans last longer so that when you find that favorite pair that fits just right, you can wear them for a long time to come.

1.     Wash Them Sparingly

If you are washing your jeans after every wear, you are killing that pair of pants. With each wash the denim gets more worn out. Try to wash your jeans as few times as possible in order to make them last. Some experts recommend only washing them once a month, but other people will say ever longer than that.1 Of course, if you are out in the field and your jeans get all muddy, then yes, you should wash them, but avoid doing this on a regular basis. If you get just a small stain, consider hand washing just that area.

2.     Take Care When You Do Wash Them

Just like cleaning your Stetson cowboy hat or washing a load of delicates, jeans shouldn’t just be carelessly thrown in the washer. In order to make jeans last, they should be turned inside out and washed in cold water. Doing both of these will help keep the color from fading. You also only need to use a small amount of detergent, and do not use bleach or fabric softener.

3.     Let Them Air Dry

Do not put your jeans in the dryer. Doing so can damage the material and cause them to lose their shape. Let them air dry instead to avoid this rough heat and keep them lasting longer.

4.     Hang Your Jeans

Instead of throwing them on the floor next to your Cody James cowboy boots or folding them like a t-shirt and stacking them, hang your jeans by the loops instead. You avoid creating creases in places where there should not be a crease. Your jeans should also keep their shape better and for longer.

If you follow these four tips to make your jeans last longer, you should be able to show off your favorite denim pair for a long time to come. But, eventually your jeans will meet their end and when that happens, our western style clothing store can help you restock your closet.

Best Country Groomsmen Attire

Move over tradition. Only about a third of weddings take place in a religious institution anymore.1 Barns are the new popular place for a wedding ceremony, and couples are adding their own personal touches to their weddings, including with their wardrobes. Long gone are the days when tuxedos and black suits were the norm. For couples that want to add a little western flare to their weddings, country groomsmen attire is completely acceptable.

Country Style Groomsmen Ideas

Country wedding groomsmen should look the part. If your wedding is filled with country décor and a western style atmosphere, then James Bond black tuxes may not be a good fit. Of course, as the bride you will steal the show in your stunning white dress, but you still want the wedding party to look good. Our online western wear store has some perfect country groomsmen attire to add to the country feel of your special day.

If you aren’t sure where to begin, start by doing some browsing. Circle S dress clothing includes a wide range of great suit coats and sport jacket options. Some are more traditional while others have a bit more of a country flare. You will be able to get a better idea about how you want your country wedding groomsmen to look.

Your man and his friends may live their lives always in blue jeans. The idea of having to wear slacks may be less than thrilling for them, but Wrangler Wrancher dress jeans and Riata Slacks are a great way to change their mind.

Cowboy boots are a must that also allow for some cute wedding photo ideas. At Sheplers Western Wear, we have an expansive selection of cowboy boots for men including formal styles to match your day. You can narrow your search by brand, style, toe shape, and skin to find exactly what you are looking for.

If you want your groomsmen to scream country, then a sleek cowboy hat will top off their attire perfectly. You will be able to find all different styles and color options. You can even choose a different style or color for your groom so that he stands out.

Finally, a cute way to add that subtle trace of country style is with a bolo tie  or country wild rag. This small detail can add that country feel to your wedding without overdoing it. The groomsmen will also be relieved to know that they do not need to wear a traditional necktie or bowtie all day.

At Sheplers Western Wear, we have everything you need for country groomsmen attire to add that subtle country touch to your special day.

Congratulations! You got the rock. Have you been staring at your finger nonstop? The fun is about to start. Before you go wedding crazy, now is the time to share that beautiful ring with the rest of the world with some country engagement photos. At Sheplers Western Wear, we have the western style clothing ideas you need to walk away with the cutest, Instagram-worthy photos of you and your future hubby.

Country Wedding Engagement Photo Ideas

The first thing the bride needs to do is figure out what to wear for engagement photos. This task can be daunting, but our online western store is here to help.

A popular option is a flowy western dress. White is an obvious choice, but you can also go for fun colors like pink or yellow. Make sure the dress is not too short or tight so that you can sit comfortably and easily change poses. Look through our new selection of women’s western dresses to find the perfect piece for your rustic country engagement photos.

If a dress is not exactly your style (that’s okay too, it’s your engagement photo shoot), a pair of flattering jeans and a cute top works just as well. Avoid shirts with words or logo as they can look tacky. Try instead a solid-colored women’s sleeveless top or a Ryan Michael western wear shirt.

When it comes to country engagement photos, you of course need a pair of pretty women’s cowboy boots. While it may be tempting to get the most glamorous pair you can find, keep it simple. You want the focus of the pictures to be on that diamond and your love story, not your feet. Make sure you follow our guide on how to clean cowboy boots if you are not buying a new pair.

You can add some accessories, but once again, do not go overboard. A pair of stud earrings, a small necklace, or a plain belt can pull an outfit together without taking away from the real focus, the ring.

Engagement Picture Outfits for Him

Do not forget about the groom’s outfit. Unless your man has some serious fashion style (not likely), you may want to step in to help him get western cowboy clothing that you approve of. Remember, the last thing you want is for your outfits to clash or for your future husband to show up in a tacky shirt you cannot stand.

A tasteful men’s western shirt from Stetson and a pair of good jeans is a classic look that never goes out of style. Don’t forget a clean pair of cowboy boots. Make sure your fiancé doesn’t try to wear his favorite pair of work boots that are permanently stained in mud and have soles that are practically falling off. If your man is in need of a new pair, our men’s cowboy boot store offers thousands of styles to choose from.

The most important part of planning your country engagement photos is to have fun! When you look good, you feel good, so take your time finding an outfit you love. Browse our western store online for a wide selection of country-style clothing and accessories to get that perfect look for both you and your new fiancé.

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.

The Best Cowboy Gifts for Your Boyfriend

Here are our latest recommendations in cowboy gear for your boyfriend so that you can make sure he is always in style:

  1. A good pair of jeans. Jeans are a staple for every cowboy. They wear them almost every day and for almost every occasion. Before you buy, you will want to compare Wrangle jeans versus Levi’s Jeans. Everybody has their own preference when it comes to jeans, so scope out the labels for the brand, size, and style of the jeans your boyfriend already wears. Taking this step will ensure you get him a pair of jeans that will fit and he will like.
  2. Cowboy boots. With thousands of choices in men’s cowboy boots at Sheplers, there is sure to be a pair that your boyfriend will love that he doesn’t already own. Maybe he needs a new pair of steel toe work boots or perhaps he wants a pair of the new Ariat men’s boots.
  3. A western wear shirt. When it comes to finding cowboy gear for your boyfriend, this category may have the largest variety. He might enjoy a long-sleeve classic denim shirt or you could help him stand out with a vintage western shirt like the Scully Men’s Pewter Embroidered Gunfighter Shirt. If you are feeling especially generous, you can find him a nice leather jacket or a hunting jacket. For the more casual guy, a good quality graphic t-shirt might be the way to go.
  4. Western accessories. If your man already has too many western shirts and cowboy boots to count, western accessories may be the best cowboy gear for your boyfriend the next time you need to get him a gift. We have wallets, watches, sunglasses, knives, briefcases, coolers, underwear, and even cologne. You should have no trouble finding a great cowboy gift for your boyfriend no matter what style he prefers.
  5. Cowboy Hat. Finally, no cowboy look is complete without the piece de resistance – the quintessential cowboy hat. Find the perfect quality cowboy hat for your beau among our wide selection of colors and styles to tie the entire cowboy look together.
