With the cowboy aesthetic creeping back into the limelight since 2018. cowboy culture and country music are among the hottest trends right now.

In fact, Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road” is currently the longest-leading Hot 100 single on Billboard’s charts, holding the number one spot for 19 weeks.

That means cowboys and cowgirls are cool again. So, if you want to ”Be the Cowboy” here are some do’s and don’t for pulling it off like a pro.

Mastering the Cowboy Aesthetic

If you want to dress like a cowboy but you live in the city, you’ll need to tone it down a bit.

Double denim just won’t do the cowboy aesthetic justice unless the shades of the fabric are significantly different. Remember, real cowboys usually wear Wrangler jeans, not high-end designer creations.

You should also leave the boots and hat at home for your city outing. A good rule of thumb, if you want to avoid looking like a cowhand, is to confine your cowboy attire to 50% unless you’re attending an actual rodeo or a costume party.

Another tip to look like a cowboy without overdoing it is to add some modern touches to your look. Consider some of the new trends in cowboy fashion like a custom leather belt with a silver 3-piece buckle, or a bespoke cowboy hat.

Plaid shirts will always scream cowboy, but you needn’t go with a gaudy print when you wear one of these. There are plenty of less eye-catching options available to create a classic and classy cowboy look.

Chaps, spurs, bolo ties, and bandanas are for real cowboys only. For best effect, stick with a simple rounded toe ‘roper-style’ cowboy boot for your footwear. Pointy toes are for posers.

As with most fashion trends, less is usually more when you’re getting creative with cowboy style.

Tips for Embracing Cowgirl Style

A pair of cowboy boots is an essential part of cowgirl attire that pairs well with a host of outfits. You can wear them with jeans, summer dresses, and even black leather pants.

If you want to know how to dress like a cowgirl for the 21st century, you’ll find plenty of inspiration on the catwalks of the world, or in fashion magazines. Tie-dye boots, metallic space-cowboy touches, and plush textures are the latest take on what cowgirls wear nowadays.

You’ll find cropped shirts and cow prints everywhere you look nowadays and cowboy hats are the latest accessory for a sexy, chic look. A fringed jacket gives your look an instant Western boost and goes with almost any outfit.

Don’t overdo it though. These are some western fashion mistakes to avoid unless you want to end up looking more like an outlaw than part of the in-crowd.
