Casual Show Wear...

So this summer i plan on just doing our club shows and they aren't anything super flashy, they just require a cowboy hat, button up shirt, jeans, and cowboy boots. or english attire. No one comes glammed up with glittery anything and I don't want to either. I'm plain jane but not sure where to shop. Our local store has nice button ups but their $59 for a shirt, nothing special just a plain button up! Thats crazy pricy imo. Also i need a decent lightweight hat very breathable so i don't sauna to death what little bit of rat hair i have left. Any advice?

Also hit up garage sales. I got a basically brand new black western shirt that is nice enough to show in for $1.

Really 'western' shirts are real in style and for sale at almost every store that sells clothing. If I was going to spend a fair bit on a shirt, I'd at least buy one of the breezy ones at Express so I could wear it for other occasions too. The cowboy hats and boots are harder, but maybe try some used tack stores.

My advice....so to JC Penny and get one their plain Worthington line button down dress shirts. They are made from a blend of cotton and spandex, are more fitted through the waist and look great with a short scarf knotted at your neck. PLEASE do not get a "real" western shirt sold in women's stores...they have "yahoo" written all over them.
waresbear and oh vair oh like this.

Random, but do you know off-hand if they carry those shirts in plus size?

Yes they do, and they are usually priced on sale for under $30.

I buy my show shirts at Boot Barn ... off the sale/clearance rack. I like the retro type shirts with embroidery on them and can usually get them for 1/2 price or less. Just another idea to consider ... if you have a Boot Barn by you.
