THE STYLE GUIDE FOR EVERYONE
To keep things in tone with Boots & Hearts, try these fashion tips.
THE HAIR & MAKE-UP
The country look is all about the “BIG” hair and make-up as it is about clothes. Keep your hair big, loose and wavy ala Loretta Lynn & Dolly Parton. No stiff city girl style. Your makeup needs to be pretty and natural too, or you will throw off the look.It’ll be a hot week in August, so be prepared to sweat while you dance the night away!
DENIM AN AMAZING PICK!
Embroidered jeans, jeans with fringe at the pant hemline, distressed jeans, and rolled cuff jeans.
A TOP THAT IS COOL!
Western style is fun and the styles right now are off the shoulder tops, cold shoulder tops, flowy peasant tops, front tie tops, and soft relaxed tees, fringe, a few ruffles or wide flowy sleeves gives a country western look and feel.
MAXI THAT IS CASUAL
A maxi dress is great country music concert outfit. Country style natural. Maxis in flowing fabrics with ruffles fit right in. Feminine floral with a sweet boho print works well. Top off your maxi dress off with a faded jean jacket, a soft, unstructured leather or suede boot that is comfortable.
PLAID OR GINGHAM
For a more cowgirl look wear your jeans with plaid or gingham. It’s a “CLASSIC COUNTRY “look ! Roll up the sleeves on your button down plaid or check shirt, throw a cute camisole on underneath, or open your neckline and add a pretty antique necklace. A cotton plaid shirt is traditional, but for country music concert outfit that is a touch more elegant, a silky gingham blouse.
Casual dresses make great country concert outfits that will give you a country feel, but stay away from anything too slinky and cocktail-like, or a dress that is tailored and business-like. You aren’t going to a “Gala”, Instead, go for something more feminine such as a swingy sundress with tiny floral print.
Another choice is a chambray shirt dress. Chambray is a soft washed denim. It’s a great match for this type of event. You can wear your chambray dress with bare legs and cowboy boots or booties or earthy sandals, or pair it up with black leggings. So many choices with Chambray.
Fringe is suited for the cowboy vibe. A top or sweater with fringe or a fringe accessory like a fringe bag or fringe boots can also be the right mix and match.
Cowboy boots are a classic choice for country concert outfits. Also try western inspired ankle booties.
LACE AND EYELET
Lace and eyelet are also feminine and go well. They look great paired with denim. Ventilated western boots to keep you cool.
Dangly jewelry, earth-toned jewelry, jewelry with feathers, beading, hoops, turquoise work. So does rustic silver jewelry, hammered jewelry, native American jewelry, leather belts, and big metal belt buckles.A slouchy suede saddle bag, a raffia cowboy hat, and some western statement jewelry tie your look together.
Outfits to wear to a country concert for men.
When I think about attending a country concert, the first thing that springs to mind is cowboy style boots and Stetson. Actually there is no need to wear them. The whole idea of country and/or folk music is to dance, enjoy and to do so in comfort. Just look amazing, dance freely and be comfortable while enjoying great Country music. The flannel checked shirt comes to mind and these are a great item for men. They are comfortable as well as fit in with the country vibe. If the flannel shirt look isn’t for you then just a t-shirt with simple print will be perfect. Casual blue, faded or black jeans, it’s all good. Either straight style or bootcut are preferable options however do not feel limited to these, be yourself and go for your own style, again do what you feel comfortable in.
Also, the chunky belt buckle! Belt buckles are an easy accessory to wear and with unlimited options for designs, finishing your own is beyond easy. Make a custom belt buckles for a more personal touch. Some “Head Shops” or “on line” have your favourite musician belt buckle, so getting a Miranda Lambert or Jason Aldean belt buckle “on line” or your local “Head Shop”!
Guys, here’s some fashion ideas, it will be August and I’m sure it will be hot or you’ll be sweating from doing a “line dance”, so dress relaxed and comfortable:
