Getting the Cowgirl Look

13 May

Girls always like to have their own particular style. Whether it is for a party or to just create their own fashion sense, some girls really appreciate the style of a true cowgirl. Just how can your daughter express the cowgirl in herself? It’s easy. No Daisy Duke’s requires (in fact, they would not be recommended!)

Girls cowboy boots are the best part of her western style wardrobe. While kids’ cowboy boots come in tons of styles and colors, the girls’ cowboy boot is very special. Girls have a look all their own that is full of femininity even when the girl herself may be rough and tumble. Kids’ cowboy boots allow your girl to embrace and express both sides of herself at the same time – that is the beauty of the true cowgirl!

What your daughter wears to present herself as a cowgirl at heart can vary widely, really. She can edge it out to look modern and trendy with a pair of denim shorts, not too short (remember, no Daisy Duke’s!) and a t-shirt of any style or color. The point with clothes is to show all sides of yourself. Girls can have so much fun with their fashion, even when they stick to a western flair. The shorts and t-shirt, or denim skirt and t-shirt just give a modern edge. Pair this with some pink or red girls’ cowboy boots and you’ve got an outfit that shows off your daughter’s feminine side without going over the top western. This is such a great look that mom may want to copy it! Mom, stick with red, brown or black boots though.

Cowgirls also wear great jeans. These should be comfortable and boot cut at the bottom so they can fit over her kids cowboy boots. Wrangler is a great brand for the ultimate cowgirl at heart, but for the city girl who is trying out some western trends in her wardrobe, Levi’s 501s are also a great choice of jean. These are not too tight and allow room at the leg for her boots. Unless absolutely necessary, tucking jeans into cowboy boots, or wearing cowboy boots with skinny jeans shouldn’t be done. This was in style for a little while but is quickly going out.

The types of shirts that cowgirls wear can vary. A modern take on the plaid shirt could be that it is fitted and worn over a tank top or fitted t-shirt. There is no need for tassels or fringe on a western shirt unless it is for costume or for show. Girls are softer and subtle and can find pastel colored shirts to be very flattering. Sometimes older girls like to wear shirts that look bigger, like it came off of their boyfriend. This is a great look when worn over a fitted t-shirt.

Does a girl need to wear a cowboy hat to really look like a cowgirl? Not really. It’s not like she would wear her cowboy hat to school or to play at the park. Cowboy hats are mainly for outdoor times when riding or working. They shield the face from the harsh sunlight and top off the cowgirl look; but aren’t always necessary.
