Have you seen the coastal cowgirl trend taking over TikTok and Pinterest this summer? It’s a trend that’s giving ‘beachy chic’ and effortless beauty. In this post, we’re going to explore the coastal cowgirl trend and help you shop for some essentials that will help you take coastal cowgirl to the next level this summer.
What do you need for a coastal cowgirl look? Well for starters, exactly what it sounds like. Straw hats, cowgirl boots, denim shorts and suntanned skin! You probably have items in your wardrobe ready to tackle this trend, but if you’re looking to shop, we have you covered.
One of our favorite things to help you do is work trends into your own fashion and style – by investing in pieces that help you create a capsule wardrobe for every season and every trend! So let’s explore how you can create a coastal cowgirl wardrobe this summer with pieces that you’ll love and wear again and again.
Coastal Cowgirl Essentials
Lasso Cowgirl Boots
The Lasso boot from Steve Madden lets you choose between three perfect neutrals and quite honestly we want them all!
First things first you need cowgirl boots – because it’s not coastal cowgirl without them! There are so many cute cowgirl boots out there right now, but we really recommend going with a neutral pair in tan, black or white so they’ll really match everything in your closet!
Raffia Cowgirl Hat
We like the more neutral straw versions of this trend as opposed to the wild west ‘typical’ version of a cowboy hat.
Next up you’re going to need a cowgirl hat. This hat would perfectly compliment a day out at the beach and should definitely be taken on your summer vacation.
Now let’s move onto some coastal cowgirl essentials that you likely already have in your wardrobe – but if you don’t then make sure to shop our favorites!
Ex-Boyfriend Trucker Jacket
One of our absolute favorites is perfect for summer thanks to its cropped feel and light wash.
A denim jacket is a must for almost every trend out there – coastal cowgirl to summer blacks. We definitely think that investing in a high quality denim jacket is always a good idea.
The Perfect White Slip Dress
We’re seeing a lot of slip dresses paired with cowgirl boots as we head into summer 2023.
Now the quintessential coastal cowgirl look is a short, flowy white dress paired with cowgirl boots, a straw hat and maybe that denim jacket. So if you’re looking for the perfect white dress for your coastal cowgirl look this summer, then look no further than this For Love & Lemons piece. Perfectly dressed down with your cowgirl boots or dressed up for a night out with the girls.
Another trend that’s really emerging alongside coastal cowgirl is slip dresses.
Distressed Denim Shorts
501 Original Short
When it comes to denim, Levi’s is always a trustworthy brand and we love this classic pair of the original jean shorts.
Similarly to your denim jacket, a good pair of denim shorts are essential to any wardrobe! We especially love a distressed pair to go with the effortlessly chic cowgirl look.
Chic Straw Bag
We love the simplicity of this bag and it’s definitely going to stand out this summer.
We love bags and accessories and so picking the perfect bag to pair with all the different styles of coastal cowgirl was a fun challenge. Like many things we’ve shared in this post, this bag can be dressed down for a day exploring or dressed up for drinks with the girls and a night out.
Oversized Graphic Tees
Baggy Graphic Tees
One way that women are jumping on this trend is by wearing their oversized graphic tees that really took off during the ‘boyfriend-look’ era with biker shorts or jean shorts and cowgirl boots.
As you can likely tell by now, the overall ‘feel’ of coastal cowgirl is going for a very relaxed and effortless look.
Bold, Gold Accessories
We’re mostly seeing bold, gold accessories to compliment the simple styles and outfits of the coastal cowgirl trend.
Finally let’s chat about accessories. Adding a big bold necklace to your outfit and gold dangling earrings are the perfect compliment to your new laid back chic summer.
What do you think of coastal cowgirl for summer 2023?
We think that no matter what your personal style is, we’re sure that there’s a way you can create the effortlessly chic coastal cowgirl look. All you really need is a good pair of cowgirl boots and a straw hat.
