It's that time of year again! We are days away from the Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth!
Dressing for stampede is easy if you keep it simple. We always tell people don't make it a costume. Everything piece you wear should be something you would wear anyways, you are just styling it different for Stampede. Still stay true to your own personal style and eat lots of mini doughnuts ;)
The base of any western wardrobe is denim. Whether you double it up and wear it on the top and bottom (ensure that the colours are noticeably different) or you mix it with plaids, lace or a rocker t-shirt you are sure to look ready to stomp your boots to the tunes! Here are some of our favourite Stampede Style looks:
