How to Have the Western Style Without the Hefty Price Tag

Do you love fashion? Do you love the Western lifestyle? Ironically, although the early cowboys and cowgirls were primarily hardworking blue-collar workers, country style has become a popular modern fashion statement. With many Hollywood starlets rocking Daisy Dukes, fringe boots, and denim jackets, the Western look is becoming increasingly trendy—which means that the price for well-made apparel is going to keep climbing.

Bench

If you’re dreaming of updating your Western wardrobe this summer but could do without the steep price tag, don’t panic. From jeans to boots to unique jewellery, there are a lot of cute, chic, and long-lasting clothing choices available for the stylish yet frugal Western woman. Affordable brands that specialize in country clothing include Ariat, Scully, Miss Me, Laredo, Minnetonka, Twisted X, and more. For head-to-toe style, stick with the most trusted names in Western fashion and you’ll never go wrong—whether you’re choosing the perfect outfit for an upcoming music festival, looking for a casual beach look, or stocking up on fall staples.

Affordable Blouses for Casual Days and Nights

Every woman, regardless of her budget, deserves to look great. Sleek pressed tops like this bucking horse print blouse in cherry red are simple yet very effective at conveying your country roots. Prefer a bit more color in your closet? Add a splash of light, airy, summer pastel with a Michael Serape stripe Western shirt. The pearl snaps add a touch of femininity and elegance.

For the bold American woman who likes to show her stars and stripes, this patriotic Scully shirt is a head-turner if you’ve ever seen one. Made from blended cotton and jute, it’s light and comfortable enough to wear three seasons out of four, meaning that you’ll be able to get more for your money. What’s more American than a great deal?

When to wear them: during chilly summer evenings, or pair your blouse with a simple solid colour scarf when fall arrives.

Budget-Friendly Dresses and Tees

For those days when you need to stay cool and look stylish, a simple sun dress is the way to go. Whether you’re going to watch live music at a camping festival or heading out for a night out on the town, you can’t go wrong with a simple patterned dress, especially when paired with a black fedora. You can dress this style up or down, depending on the occasion, so if you’re watching your money, you can get a lot of use out of one single dress.

For a laidback casual beach day, go with a simple yet fashionable pull-on dress. Even if you’re in a rush getting ready, you can make this look super stylish with the addition of a straw hat or a wide-brimmed felt hat. Add some silver statement jewellery and your boho chic summer festival look will be ready in five minutes or less.

Not into wearing dresses? If you’re more the “jeans and T-shirt” type, you can still turn heads at your next big summer event with an affordable and fashionable top like this Miss Me Midnight Oasis tank. Throw it on with a pair of denim cutoffs or a simple white skirt and you’ll look and feel great, no matter how high the temperature rises.

The accessories make the outfit: so don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone. A long statement necklace or earrings can take a simple look from bland to fabulous.

Footwear and Accessories

Everyone knows that cowboys love their boots. For the daring fashionista whose country roots are a part of her identity, a good pair of cowboy boots can add confidence to their walk no matter whether they’re running errands, heading to work, or going to the bar. Women’s Western boots don’t need to break the bank in order to offer you a unique edge to your style. In fact, right now you can grab a pair of fringe cowgirl boots for under $100. If fringe isn’t your thing, Laredo leather boots are very popular and come in a variety of colors, toe shapes, and styles.

While cowboys collect bolo ties, cowgirls have a vaster array of options available to them. If you’re a traditional kind of girl, you might enjoy the simplicity of this engraved heart necklace. Bohemian jewellery like this feather necklace add a retro vibe to your overall aesthetic. The feather pendant is cast from both silver and copper.

For the vintage lover: hit up a thrift store in your local area to find some well-loved statement pieces. You never know what you’ll find!
