The bright colors, crazy prints, sequins, wild hats, embroidery, high-waisted jeans, the abundance of fringe, bell-bottoms, and so much more is now something that frequently appears on the rodeo scene. But, if you really stop and think about it, hasn’t it always?
The girls from back in the day donned fringe and sequins quite frequently. If you look at today’s outfits, they’re really not all that different! Sure, we’ve gone through different phases and drastically different ways of styling throughout the decades, and it definitely can’t be argued that some staple pieces have had their day above others. However, many pieces have come back around.
Old clothing is being pulled out of mama and grandma’s closets and up-cycled. Rockies and fringe are sought after, maybe even more so than they were in the 90’s. Women actually have a selection of hats once again, which is something that sat on the back burner for quite a while.
The ladies of the western industry are looking back for inspiration, and it’s wonderful! Can you imagine what would happen if we started looking backward for other inspirations, advice, and thoughts?
