When it comes to style, nothing makes a statement quite like a western dress. Sophisticated, flirty, and fun, there are different types of western dresses to match every occasion.

Whether going out for date night or glamming it up in Vegas at the National Finals Rodeo, the perfect western dress makes any outing a red carpet event. Read on to discover which dress is the best fit for you and all your modern cowgirl needs. 

A Dress For Every Occasion

Western dresses come in a wide array of fabrics and patterns, ranging from denim to cotton, in all different lengths. Want to show some leg? Then we suggest a shift dress. Looking to elongate your silhouette? Then a long, traditional western dress would do the trick.

While long dresses can be formal, they can also pair beautifully with the perfect leather belt and boots and worn anytime, anywhere.

Spice up a wrap dress with a gorgeous pair of western boots and watch as heads turn. With so many perfect little dresses available, who could choose just one?

Types of Western Dresses

Sheath, wrap, button-down, shirt and shift dress; the possibilities are endless. There are all types of dresses that modern cowgirls can wear to the office, out with friends, or at the rodeo. Regardless of the occasion, you can dress to impress all year long.

Shift dresses have a looser fit, while sheath dresses are more form-fitting, hugging your figure. Wrap dresses accentuate your bust and flare away from the body to give a flowing, sophisticated look. Regardless of style, dress up any look to match the occasion.

Wear a denim jacket for a more casual look, or add the right pop of jewelry to take a shirt dress to the next level. 

Finding Your Perfect Dress

Compliment your body shape with the perfect dress. Hourglass shapes look best in belted or wrap dresses, accentuating the narrowest part of your body. 

If you have an apple shape, then opt for a swing dress or something with an empire waist. These dresses tend to pull away from your midsection, creating a smoother look all around.

If your shoulders are broader than your hips, look for A-line dresses, as they draw the eye downward, balancing out your body. 

For a more athletic build, look for dresses that have ruching or have a form-fitting midsection, flowing away at the waist. These add shape and definition in all the right places.

The Complete Ensemble 

No western dress is complete without a pair of boots. Long, short, midi or maxi, every dress pairs beautifully with cowboy boots.

There are shoes and boots that accentuate all types of western dresses.

All dresses look great with knee-high boots but if you’re looking to show off some leg, try a pair of snake skin booties.
