This was big on my mind last week as I placed a job posting for a sales associate for the store. In the requirements I included "attire appropriate for the western industry". I did not have as many responses as I did a few months ago to another listing that did not specify any attire. This is the only thing I could think of that would make much of a difference.
So what exactly is cowgirl apparel or western attire? It really depends on where you are and what you are doing. To me appropriate western attire definately includes boots. Of course my 5 toe Lucchese Classics might not be the boot for a girl taking her horse for a ride, but they do look pretty great running around the store. It also includes a favorite pair of jeans. It doesn't matter what brand, what cut, or what style as long as you feel amazing in them. Then what ever top you are in the mood for be it a t-shirt, a plaid button down, or a light peasant top.
Western attire has definately evolved from the roper and brushpopper days. It is all about comfort, style and individuality. There is no right or wrong item to include, just what suits your personality best.

I thought it would be fun to have different members of our team put together outfits from head to toe for Fashion-Forward Fridays. We can showcase some of the new items we have in and how to put them together for a fun fashion- forward look. So check us out every Friday and see what we have come up with.

Obviously there is the matter of what type of jeans you have on. If you are wearing boot cut jeans, it is a given that your jeans go over your boots. It's difficult to pull off the boots tucked in with the extra denim at the bottom of a boot cut jean. And of course with skinny jeans, boots outside will only work, because of the lack of denim at the bottom.
Really there should be no problem then, pick your jean and wear it accordingly. A couple of the girls at our Cowboy Shop often wear their boots out and it definately gives the boot a new look so I did just that. I will admit it felt a little strange at first and my 14 year old daughter wasn't sure that it was a good idea to leave the house that way, but I figured what the heck.
So for the first day out, I chose my triad cut mosaic caimen boots with the bronze quarters, my most flashy boots. I was at first a little self conscious, but quickly became comfortable with the look. To me it was a little more fashionable look, and that is somewhere I am excited to go. I am thinking boots in are a little more casual and comfortable, boots out are a little more fashionable and edgy.
It's so much fun being able to experiment with different styles and being able to get two styles out of one item.

The ladies jean comes in 2 fits as of now, Ruby which is a low rise slimmer fit, and Turquoise that is a mid rise with a slightly more relaxed fit. In the fall, they are coming out with the Amber fit that is between the two fits avaliable now. We were lucky enough to have our Ariat Apparel rep here and try on the sample. They are great.
Ariat denim is built to hold up, with 100 % ringspun cotton , comfort inseams that lay flat to prevent irritation, anchored belt loops, true fit waist band, high -quality zippers and hardware, no see pocket lines as well as slimming back pockets. Ariat designers work to provide a fashionable jean that will take you from the saddle to out on the town.
