Women's Western Fashion Mistake -
Adding Too Much Pink
Pink western wear has become increasingly popular. With that
popularity comes new western wear excitement, but at the same
time, many fashion blunders. As with any new fashion craze,
things can be taken too far and create fashion disaster. Colors
like pink and purple used in moderation can say "I'm western,
but I am a lady and I am proud of it!"
There are some definite do's and don'ts of using pink in
your cowgirl clothing wardrobe. Here are some examples:
- Pink Jeans, Pink Boots, and a Pink Hat. Too much!
Especially if they are different shades of pink. All this
pink says "I'm a little too giddy and immature".
- Pink Shirt, Pink Hat, and Pink Belt. Once again, too
much and you will look like a pink ice cream cone.
- Pink Boots, Pink Jeans, and a Purple Hat. Wow, give it
up or face laughter in the streets!
I have actually seen these fashion blunders in action. I've
witnessed them in person, and sometimes in bad magazine
Try these combinations instead for the perfect touch of
- Brown Boots, Pink Jeans, Brown Belt with Silver Buckle,
White Shirt, Earrings and Necklace with Pink Accents and a
White Hat with a Pink Hat Band. This says, "I love pink in
my western, but I am a classy lady".
- Black Boots, Blue Jeans, Pink Belt with Crystal or
Diamond Bling Buckle, Pink or Pink Striped Shirt, Pink
Accented Bracelet, Black Hat with a Crystal or Diamond Hat
Band. This one says "I'm into pink and I am ready for some
fun tonight, but I am a classy cowgirl".
- In both these examples, pink is accenting and
accessorizing your western style, not dominating it. This
approach allows you to love pink, but keep your western
Don't ever underestimate using pink or pink accented jewelry
to give more femininity to your cowgirl clothing. Even if you
are a "hardcore" western fashion lady, using pink western
jewelry can make things just soft enough to give people a much
different impression of you. Pink western jewelry is also a
great way to add some western flair to any type of fashion. As
turquoise and silver becomes a more popular way to "westernize"
many fashions, pink accented western jewelry can serve the same
purpose. You can never lose with using jewelry to give you
the right accents you are looking for. Just as gold
says something different than silver, so can color accents in
your jewelry. Even using a pink leather cord necklace can give
you "just enough" pink to accent your cowgirl clothing.
Remember, don't go overboard and end up looking like a bad
billboard. Accent and accessorize to say the right things. You
will love the compliments you get adding pink to your western
