Stampede Style in the Village

Stampede Style in the Village

Stampede is upon us once again and the businesses of Crescent Heights Village are ready to help you put together your signature look for this year’s festivities.

Here’s what you need to know about putting together your Stampede wardrobe:

These men's Naked and Famous jeans at Urban Thrift are the perfect start to your Stampede Look.

Start with the Basics: The foundation of any Western outfit lies in the basics. For men, a well-fitted pair of straight-legged jeans in a medium to dark wash is a must. Women can opt for jeans or a denim skirt, preferably with a high waist. Pair them with a plaid or chambray shirt in earthy tones like red, blue, or green. Choose a style with snap buttons for an added Western touch.

Embrace Western-Inspired Footwear: No Western look is complete without the right footwear. For men, cowboy boots are a classic choice, with their pointed toes and intricate stitching. Women can opt for cowboy boots or ankle boots with a stacked heel. Look for details like fringe, buckles, or metal accents to add flair to your outfit.

Accessorize with Western Accents: Accessories play a crucial role in tying together a Western look. Start with a wide-brimmed felt hat for both men and women. Leather belts with ornate buckles are a staple, while bolo ties or Western-inspired necklaces can add a touch of charm. Don’t forget to sport a statement belt buckle as it can become a focal point of your ensemble. For women, oversized silver or turquoise jewelry can complement the look beautifully.

Layer with Western-Inspired Jackets and Vests: To add dimension and authenticity to your Western ensemble, consider layering with jackets and vests. For men, a denim or leather jacket with a worn-in look can instantly elevate your outfit. Women can experiment with denim jackets, suede fringe vests, or faux fur vests for a touch of Western charm.

Opt for Western-Inspired Patterns and Fabrics: To truly embody the Western aesthetic, incorporate patterns and fabrics that are reminiscent of the Wild West. Look for items in gingham, plaid, or bandana prints. For women, flowing maxi dresses or skirts with floral or Native American-inspired patterns can add a feminine twist to the ruggedness of the Western style.

You name it, Urban Thrift's got it. You'll have a new look for each of the 10 days of Stampede!

Master the Art of Layering: Layering is key to creating a versatile and visually appealing Western look. Pair a patterned or graphic tee with a denim shirt, and top it off with a suede or leather jacket. Consider adding a bandana or scarf around your neck or tie it around your hatband for an extra touch of authenticity.

Whether you’re attending a Western-themed party or simply want to infuse a hint of the Wild West into your everyday attire, putting together a Western look can be both exciting and stylish. By incorporating the right pieces, such as straight-legged jeans, plaid shirts, cowboy boots, and Western-inspired accessories, you can effortlessly channel your inner cowboy or cowgirl. So saddle up, embrace the spirit of the frontier, and let your Western look take center stage. Yeehaw!
