There are a few distinct styles out there that can give you a really fun and striking look, and nowhere is that more true than in the case of the classic western look. In fact, it is such an iconic look that I don’t even have to explain it since just mentioning it has put the image in your head already. But, if you like the look but don’t know how to get it, well that’s what I’m here to explain.
There are a few things you will need to get from the country and western wear style of clothing if you want to emulate an authentic cowboy look, but the most important one is obviously the hat. If you have never worn a cowboy hat before, well there really isn’t much to it. Simply see how different sized ones fit and make sure that they are neither so tight that they will cut off circulation to your brain, or so big that your neck will hurt trying to support the extra weight. You might be tempted to get a bigger one at first, but take my word for it, you will regret not getting one that fits because you won’t like how you look after the novelty value has worn off and you will constantly have to adjust it to keep it from falling off.
Going south, since the main focus is the outfit itself, you will also need a little something for both your upper and lower body that say this isn’t your first rodeo. Honestly, there really isn’t anything to this part, just think “Smokey and the Bandit” and try to copy the look Burt Reynolds had in that movie. To complete this ensemble, all you will really need is a simple shirt with a colour of your choice, or even a plaid pattern if you really wanna get crazy, a pair of well worn denim jeans, and a huge belt buckle. You don’t even have to look hard for these items as any self respecting country and western wear store is sure to have enough choice available for these types of items that you can mix and match your own unique touch into the outfit.
And finally, is any cowboy worth his spurs really not going to have a great pair of cowboy boots? In the case of the boots, you will really want to stick to the classic colours and design and only focus on the size and how much you want to spend on them. You will want a boot that fits your foot’s arch well, that is tight enough to not feel like your foot is slipping inside, but not so tight that you stop feeling your toes after 5 minutes. Again, go with what feels the most comfortable and then strap them on and take your new look out for a spin.
