Cowgirl attire is both practical and fashionable, blending touches of femininity, masculinity, and down-home Southern charm. Read this article to learn how to master this timeless look!

The Essentials

  1. Get a pair of bootcut, blue denim jeans. Alternatively, you can wear cutoff denim shorts or a denim skirt.
  2. Wear a button-down shirt. These shirts can either be short-sleeved or long-sleeved. For a more casual look, wear a t-shirt.
    • Roll the sleeves of your button-down at your elbows.
  3. Find a Western-style cowboy hat. These kinds of hats come in black, brown, tan, and white.
    • If you don't want to wear a hat, try a bandana that matches the color of their button-up shirt. Keep the tied part on the side of your head, and tie it like a bow.
  4. Get a pair of cowboy boots. Traditionally, cowboy boots are made of leather, but are also available in faux-leather and exotic skins like alligator, snake, and buffalo. These boots also come in a variety of toe styles: round toe, square toe, or pointed toe.
    • If you plan on wearing your boots in muddy or wet conditions, consider getting a pair with rubber soles.
  5. Wear your hair down in braids or a low ponytail.

Accessories (Optional)

  1. Tie a bandana around your neck. Traditional cowboys and cowgirls alike used bandanas to absorb their sweat while working on the ranch. Nowadays, bandanas are mostly worn as a fashion statement.
    • Tie the bandana behind your neck so that the triangle part is facing your front. (Only if you wore the cowgirl hat instead of the bandana)
  2. Wear a Western-style belt. Cowgirl belts are usually made of brown leather, and have large silver, gold, or turquoise buckles. For extra flare, find one with braided or medallion embellishments.

Tips

  • Consider buying cowboy boots, belts, and hats second-hand from a thrift store, as they can be quite expensive.
  • Look around your house, you can probably find stuff that adds to your costume!
  • Wear little to no makeup on your face. Authentic cowgirls are au-natural.
