What I'm Wearing to Stagecoach

Updated: Apr 24, 2019


As I mentioned in my Coachella Style Recap post, the western look is still very much alive.  Cowboy boots, western hats and big silver buckled belts accompanied even non-western looks at Coachella, often adding edge and a bit of playfulness. So western is not dead, and if you're headed to Stagecoach next weekend--or any other country music festival this summer--you'll be pleased to see examples of some really great outfits.

Upcoming attendees of Stagecoach should be pleased to have plenty of inspiration from the last two weekends at Coachella.  The reason this look probably stays year after year is likely because of the sheer practicality.  Western boots or booties are generally fairly comfortable and protect your feet from all the dirt and dust.  A cowboy hat, or something like the uber trendy Zulu Rancher from Lack of Color, is not only super in style right now but provides shade from your face and even though a felt hat might seem hot, I’ve always found a hat to make me generally feel a bit cooler because I don’t have the sun directly on my face.  Outfit options are easy from there: pair some high waisted cutoffs with a crop top, crochet top or even a bikini or bodysuit or just pick a flowy sundress or matching top and skirt set (something in gingham or floral would be perfect), then pair with a western belt and you’re good to go.  Not only cute but super comfortable, great for hot weather and can be any varying level of modest or showing skin, depending on how you want it. 


Since it’s clearly more appropriate to dress in western-inspired looks for Stagecoach or other country music festivals, I’ve got a few looks planned for this weekend that I’ll share in advance:

Hi, I'm Lauren!

I’m the California-based blogger behind Travel is the Cure. I’m a full time trial lawyer, but thankfully travel often for both work and pleasure. My true passion is travel−I love to wander, taste new food and embrace new experiences. I created this blog to help others plan their own travel, hopefully using my recommendations for where to stay, where to eat, and what to do in each of my favorite destinations. I hope this blog inspires and informs, and perhaps even just assists in recalling some of your favorite travel memories from places you've been as well.

I hope you enjoy.
