First WP show, many questions...hat? chaps? shirt?

I've never been in a show before, so this will be my first, at 27 years old...I'm clueless. It will be a local show, so nothing too fancy but I'd still like to look the part.

My plan is to wear some flashy Miss Me type jeans, my brown cowboy boots and then purchase a flashy plaid shirt (something with red accents - planning on using a red saddle pad), black chaps and a black hat. Is that too 'casual' for a WP show?

I was looking at these chaps (if I can't get some custom made for a decent price [stepmom]): Tough-1 Suede Leather Western Show Chaps - thoughts?

Where is a good place to buy a hat? What specifics should I look for when buying a hat?

Maybe something like this for a shirt (maybe less stuff on the back): Roar Ari Shirt - Women's Shirts/Tops | Buckle

Will black chaps/hat look tacky with my brown boots?

Thank you all in advance for your help, I couldn't think of a better place to ask, I've read though a lot of posts and ya'll are sooo helpful and friendly.

PS: The horse I'll be showing on is a AQHA chestnut.

Or should I go with a solid shirt like so: Cruel GirlŪ Ladies Solid Burgundy Long Sleeve Western Shirt | Cavender's Boot City

I think what you picked out should work fine for your local open show.I like the contrast of the red & white with the black. It will also look better if you are planning on going with your red saddle pad.Don't worry too much about your boots,the chaps & stirrups will hide alot of them
Good luck,have fun & don't forget some pictures!

Lose the Miss Me "flashy" jeans. You should wear plain, dark jeans or pants that match your chaps.

You can get a good hat from Rod's and make sure they do a QH crease.
