Rodeo Chic Style Guide: Jewelry and Accessory Recommendations
For many Western Jewelry and style enthusiasts, a Rodeo is an ideal opportunity for them to showcase their love of this exceptional fashion trend while feeling excited to be a part of something akin to modern Cowboy entertainment! And while Western, Southwestern, Rodeo, and “Cowboy” style trends come and go as do all others, some key staples are perfect for incorporating into your wardrobe if you’re just starting to attend Rodeos as someone that loves this popular trend of jewelry, fashion, and lifestyle!
At West Coast Cowgirl, we are committed to providing high quality, incredibly stylish jewelry and accessories that are “Rodeo Chic” and ready-to-wear to events with a Cowboy/Cowgirl theme, Rodeos, and other Western-style parties, and we hope the following ideas and suggestions will have you excited about your upcoming events! Just grab a pair of jeans, a huge, silver belt buckle, and a fun, Western-style shirt and pair them with any of the following suggestions for a polished, “Rodeo Chic” look!
A Killer Cowgirl Hat
It’s no wonder that “Rodeo Chic” incorporates countless Cowgirl Hat designs, making these accessories a fun, highly personal, fundamental piece of any Rodeo outfit! A killer hat sets your tastes apart, and can quickly become a hallmark piece of your Rodeo wardrobe. Let your personality shine, and don’t be afraid to use bold colors and fabric choices! For example, our Cowgirl Pride Hat is available in Electric Blue and Pink in addition to the more traditional Black, Camel, and Coffee color choices. Similarly, our popular Coco Lady Felt Hat has a Red color option on top of black and khaki, and the felt material with the beaded brim is memorable and stylish. It’s no wonder that so many “Rodeo Chic” fans end up with a whole wardrobe of cowgirl hats, considering how fun and versatile they are!
The Fringe Effect
Without a doubt, “fringe” details are an integral part of Cowgirl fashion, and they are extremely fun and versatile for Rodeo events. A tiny amount goes a long way – consider pairing a garment or purse, such as our stunning Gabriel Handbag – with a simple base outfit, such as jeans and a white Western snap shirt, plus some fun Cowboy boots or hat. If your intended outfit or wardrobe is already completed and you want a more understated, jewelry piece to compliment your look, our Tawni Earrings incorporate the fringe theme without being over-saturated. These pebble stone earrings combine metal with dangling suede for an eye-catching, lovely design that softly moves when you walk, and they can be blended with other fringe elements as well without over-saturating your style!
Earthy Gemstone Details and Silver Styles
While Cowboy boots and hats are all the rage in Rodeo Chic fashion, there’s no question that jewelry choices featuring agate, turquoise, and other earthy, Southwestern-style gemstones are crucial to this fashion trend. Our Diego Necklace is the perfect example, featuring a bold style that combines agate and turquoise beads for a charming effect, with a large slice of natural agate for its eye-catching pendant! Alternatively, if you’d like a silver jewelry set that’s ideal for any “Rodeo Chic” outfit, our new arrival Acadia Choker Jewelry Set combines the super on-trend Choker necklace style with a pair of matching earrings. With rhinestone details and either periwinkle or cardinal stone accent colors, this set is sure to be a go-to favorite for our Rodeo-loving customers!
