Southern-inspired fashion isn’t just limited to 10-gallon cowboy hats, bolo ties and shiny belt buckles. Today’s country fashion is more stylish than ever. And you don’t have to be from a small town to wear the look. Country music superstars like Miranda Lambert and Luke Bryan are setting new trends that anyone can wear. Here are some of today’s hottest looks:
Boot Scootin’ Boogie
Cowboy boots are synonymous with country fashion. From country concerts to everyday wear, versatile boots can be paired with nearly any outfit. And today’s country stars are no strangers to the long-standing fashion trend. Outdoor retailers like Cabela’s sell boot brands like Justin’s, Durango and Tony Lama. Not only do they offer the best styles, Cabela’s has partnerships with country celebs like Luke Bryan, Justin Hodge and Justin Moore, which makes them a credible country-fashion retailer.
Country music superstar Carrie Underwood rose to fame after she was discovered on the hit show “American Idol.” Not only is Carrie famous for her amazing vocals, she’s one of the most stylish female singers in the industry. She’s known to wow audiences with her stage outfits and she owns the red carpet at events like the CMAs in beautiful floral-printed gowns. Carrie’s everyday style, even her fitness brand Calia, embraces fun floral prints and pops of color for a powerful and feminine look. From casual floral dresses to workout pants with fun prints, you can emulate Carrie’s style for any occasion, from a day at the gym to an evening out with the girls.
Not only does Miranda Lambert rock the stage, she’s known to rock lace in all colors and styles. From fun and flirty whites, pastel blues and reds to a sultry and sexy black lace, Miranda has been photographed in all of these lace looks. Consider a neutral-colored or pastel lace dress for daytime. Or if you’re searching for a country-inspired evening look, opt for something a little darker in black or navy. Lace dresses can be paired with leather boots, wedges or flat sandals for a casual look. Or you can pair a lace dress with a classy pair of heels in nude or black for a more polished look.
Luke Bryan is known for donning the traditional flannel shirt. Not only is the country staple engineered to stand the test of time out on the farm, more and more people are adopting the flannel trend in their own wardrobes. Both men and women can sport the versatile and comfy look. The classic button down is suitable for casual wear, or men can dress it up by pairing the flannel with a dark pair of denim jeans, leather belt, statement watch and boots or classic dress shoes for a more sophisticated look. Women can wear the look by layering the flannel over a classic white tank or, for a trendy look, tie the flannel around the waist and pair it with leggings and tennis shoes. Flannel shirts are made in all types of materials; for colder weather opt for a thicker material, or if you’re considering wearing the flannel trend in a warmer area, go for a breathable material that keeps you cool, comfy and stylish.
