Your First Country Concert Outfit

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.

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. Whether you are outside working in your jeans or you throw them on to do your daily errands, your jeans have an expiration date. 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.

Whether you are seeking out the biggest rodeos in the US this year or you just happen to be in the neighborhood and looking for a good time, check out these upcoming rodeos and get your rodeo tickets.

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.

Cody Stampede Rodeo

When: All Summer Long

Where: Cody, Wyoming

About: If you are looking for one of the biggest rodeos in the US, then this is the place to go. Known as the Rodeo Capital of the World, Cody is home to nightly rodeo events and attract tourists from around the country. This year marks the 100th anniversary of the Cody Stampede.

What to Wear: Since this town attracts so many visitors, why not try to stand out? Now might be a good time to break out your attention-grabbing Corral cowgirl boots to add to your cute rodeo outfit. Men can break from tradition with a stylish country graphic t-shirt and a jacket.

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.

The right jacket will not only keep you warm, but also add to your outfit. You can choose from jean jackets, leather jackets, fringe jackets, and more.

Western Wear Accessories

You can even accessorize with statement country jewelry to make your outfit pop. A big necklace could be the difference between a mediocre dress and a fashion-forward outfit.

Finally, complete your cowgirl look with a cute, fashionable pair of cowboy boots. Luckily, cowboy boots for women come in a variety of styles, designs, and materials to fit your ideal pair. We have everything from women’s riding boots to women’s snow boots. Start with one good pair and work your way to a closet full of fashion-forward cowboy boots to match every outfit.
