Go West: 5 Essentials to Wear to A Western Themed Party
Who doesn’t love attending a western theme party? Foot-stompin’ tracks, good-looking peeps, and steaks make one rootin’, tootin’ exciting time for all the attendees. However, it’s not easy to dress up for the occasion. Your outfit can be a hit or a miss based on how much time and effort you are willing to put into your dressing game. Don’t bring the boring suit out…give your appearance a western spin and turn heads by putting together an outfit with the following essentials:
- Heritage Footwear
There is nothing better than flaunting a pair of retro boots with a vintage appeal. Options like the Ariat women’s cowboy boots can put a decent giddyup in the party-goer’s wardrobe. The latest designs feature playfully patterned fabric and a sculpted outsole that allows you to display your style inside and outside of the event. Ideally, the best cowboy vintage footwear will have pull holes, mesh lining, and advanced support & cushioning.
- Off-The-Shoulder Top
Expect cowboys to line up for a chance to speak to the cowgirls who rock this chic outfit. There’s something about the versatility of this casual outfit that demands attention in a setting. Pro tip: When going to a western themed party wearing this outfit, skip the necklace as off-the-shoulder look already highlights the neckline. Stick with hand jewelry and earrings. Even if you don’t feel like making an effort to get that western look spot on, the right accessories like cowgirl boots and a breathable top can go a long way in giving off that country vibe.
- Lighter Shades for Afternoon
For an afternoon western themed party, go for a lighter shade such as ruby pink, light blue, and emerald green or else opt for pastel colors. Looking good is all about highlighting the best and providing excellent cover to less appealing areas. To add on to the style, wrap a red scarf around the neck; it’s sure to attract everyone’s attention. For those with a petite figure, long skirts with a trendy fish cut may be a better option than off-the-shoulder tops.
- Pleated Maxi
Just because you’re invited to a western themed party, doesn’t mean you have to restrict yourself to cowgirl elements strictly. A pleated maxi supported by a western belt exudes Southwestern style. Also, women can add an ultraviolet top and brightly colored shoes to add a modern and versatile touch to the overall look. Likewise, a fringe jacket can be supported by essential pieces such as a leather mini or a white top for an edgy appearance.
- Red & Black
A red and black shirt, complemented by ankle boots and a studded belt, can provide a rocker-meets-western touch to your outfit. Rolled cuffs and classic jeans in light brown shade will make your lower body look killer. Another option is the prairie-based florals for a fresh western look. Regardless of the top you choose, reach for a vintage-retro fanny pack with tassel detailing instead of a purse to stand out from the crowd.
Dressing up western style is a lot of fun. Hopefully, the tips as mentioned earlier will allow you to draw attention to yourself in the next western themed party you attend.
