Calgary Stampede Style Essentials Guide

Are you ready to experience the Calgary Stampede, also known as "The Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth"? This iconic 10-day festival is a celebration of western culture, packed with rodeo events, parades, concerts, and more. As a lifelong Albertan and a lover of western fashion, I’m excited to share my top tips for nailing your Stampede look!

Stampede Style Essentials

1. The Versatile Base Start with a comfortable base like a pair of jeans. Opt for light, breathable fabrics to keep cool during the hot July days. A western-inspired shirt made from a breathable fabric is a great choice for its comfort and ease, allowing you to move freely and stay cool. 


2. Western Hats Protect yourself from the sun with a stylish western hat. While traditional cowboy hats are a staple, don't shy away from experimenting with flat-brimmed or floppy hats. They add a chic touch to your outfit and provide practical sun protection.

3. A Versatile Bag Choose a bag that's both stylish and practical. Tote bags or a fringe bag are great options that keep your essentials secure while adding to your western look. 

4. Festival Accessories  Sunglasses are more than just a stylish accessory at the Calgary Stampede; they’re a festival essential. The intense summer sun can be relentless, and a good pair of shades will not only protect your eyes but also elevate your western look.

Additional Tips

Express Yourself: The Stampede is the perfect opportunity to showcase your personal style. Don’t be afraid to mix traditional western elements with modern or bohemian touches to create a look that's uniquely you.
