With Stampede just around the corner, we wanted to ask Calgary: What’s your Stampede style? There are so many ways to do western wear. Here are some of our favourites through the years. Don’t forget to top up your cowboy wardrobe at at Lammle’s Western Wear! Tag your photos of Stampede fashion #mystampedestyle #mywesternwear.
Jeans, cowboy boots, belt buckle, button up shirt and hat. This is what the pros wear.
Sundresses with hat and boots
Perfect for ladies on a sunny summer day. Often worn with a jean jacket.
Matching and adorable
Embracing classic western with a modern twist. Preferably worn with an ironic mustache.
Clothes with horses
Like this shirt. Solid.
Stampede Royalty lead the way in western fashion, and here they are wearing fringe with style. Also, 2014 Indian Princess Carly Weasel Child’s skirt: beautiful.
Double denim, a.k.a. the Canadian Tuxedo
You may not be able to get away with it for the rest of the year, but during Stampede double denim is a rite of passage. Embrace it. Like Bobby Wills.
Who wouldn’t want to wear leather chaps over their jeans when it’s 31 degrees outside? A bold, iconic look.
T-Shirt and jeans
A more casual take on the classic. Here, Aaron Pritchett shows us you can add your boots and hat to any outfit and you are Stampede ready!
Suspenders and/or Sheriff badge
2014 Parade Marshal William Shatner rocks the leather suspenders and his sheriff badge with confidence.
The bandana looks good and is great to have on hand when you’re getting a little sweaty from walking around on Stampede Park. Win. Win.
The bolo tie is authentic western and not just for gents—try it, ladies! Harder to see but also note this gentleman’s amazing leather beaded jacket (and sheriff’s badge!).
