What Should Women Wear to a Country Concert?

When it comes to choosing what to wear to a country concert, you can’t go wrong with cowgirl boots, denim, and a T-shirt or flowy top. Wear skinny jeans tucked into your boots—or denim shorts for a fun, casual look—along with your favorite blouse or flannel button-down. Shop our latest women's western fashion finds!

Dresses are also a great choice, especially for warmer weather. Try a flowy midi dress with a simple pattern, paired with a stylish pair of short cowgirl booties.

For Western dresses and tops, go for solid colors—or add a bit of flair with embroidery, flowered patterns, or geometric designs.

If you want to go full-on cowgirl, wear a flannel or plaid top over light-wash, boot-cut jeans, throw on your cowgirl boots, and top off the look with a felt hat and some jewelry.

The Boots Are Everything

When putting together your outfit for a country concert, the boots are the most important part. Make a statement with a pair of cowgirl boots in bold colors or try a striking pattern with a Southwestern-inspired pair of cowgirl boots. Headed to an evening country concert? Studded cowgirl booties are the cowgirl boot equivalent of high heels. Wear them with capris, shorts and a dressier top, or a flowy dress for a head-turning country concert outfit.

Hats and Hair

When thinking about what to wear to a country concert, don’t forget to top off your look. Hats are a staple in a Western wardrobe. When attending an outdoor concert, wearing a hat is a great way to show off your style while also protecting your face from the sun. If you’re going for a traditional look, wear your cowboy boots with the quintessential topper: a classic cowboy hat. Match the color of your hat to the color of your boots and dance the night away. But don’t feel like you have to stick with tradition. Add some personality with a trucker hat or snapback cap—or forgo the hat entirely and let your hair do the talking.

There’s no one way to style your hair for a country concert. Some people love getting a blowout to wear to a country concert; others prefer to keep it simple by throwing their hair up in a ponytail. The point of a country concert is to have fun, so style your hair in a way that makes you feel happy, confident, and comfortable.

Tops

The type of top you wear to a country concert largely depends on the rest of your outfit. If you plan on wearing a pair of distressed brown cowgirl boots, stick to more casual tops, like a denim button-down, chunky knit, or graphic tee. Or dress up a pair of cowgirl booties with an off-the-shoulder top or flowy cardigan.

Pants or Shorts?

Whether you wear pants or shorts to a country concert depends on the weather, your preference, and how traditional you want your outfit to be. Traditionally, cowboy boots are worn with pants or jeans, and if the country concert you’re attending is in the fall or winter, you might be more comfortable in pants. For outdoor concerts, especially in the summer, wearing shorts can keep you cool while you dance to your favorite song.

Should You Wear a Dress to a Country Concert?

Absolutely! Wearing a cute and simple sundress, midi dress, or Western-style dress with cowboy boots to a country concert allows you to look cute while staying comfortable.

No matter what you wear to a country concert, the important thing is to have a good time. And don’t be afraid to go full-on country—that’s part of the fun!
