Yee Haw! Calgary Stampede Inspired Fashion

Calgary Stampede Inspired Fashion

Here’s how to go a little bit country, taking cues from one of our nation’s biggest traditions.

The Stampede is here. From July 7 to July 16 cowboys and cowgirls will descend on Calgary in their best boots and ten-gallon hats. Even if you’re not going to the festivities themselves, take inspiration from one of our country’s biggest events (dubbed the Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth!), and add hits of that western life to your ensemble for a boho chic vibe. Test out these looks now at your favourite local fair, and they’ll be well broken in for apple picking this fall.

Wrangle yourself pieces with ruffles, grommets and buckles to go along with your bandanas and boot-cut jeans.
