Updated: 8/24/2023 | How to Dress Like a Coastal Cowgirl
What is a Coastal Cowgirl?
The Coastal Cowgirl TikTok trend came and won’t be leaving anytime soon. We expect coastal cowgirl fashion to stick around all spring and well into summer, simply because it’s so versatile.
This aesthetic is distinct and can be easily assembled with items that you may already have in your closet.
The coastal cowgirl trend is both rugged and relaxed. It combines a light beach feel with knits and cotton tops with western wear essentials such as denim, western boots, cowboy hats, and buckled belts.
Below we’ll share what a coastal cowgirl would wear so that you can also achieve this effortless look and aesthetic.
What Does a Coastal Cowgirl Wear?
Combine a sexy corset (also referred to bodice tops) with jeans or a skirt for an effortless coastal cowgirl look.
Denim is a coastal cowgirl essential. We love denim jeans, shorts, dresses, skirts, shirts, and jackets.
#3 Effortless Maxi Skirts
Pair a flirty top with a skirt to complete your outfit. We love wearing flouncy denim or a tiered cotton skirt.
#4 Cowboy Boots
Head over to our Tecovas review to see how we style their gorgeous western boots.
#5 Cowboy Hats
Also known as western hats, it’s essential for a coastal cowgirl to have at least one hat. And honestly, I think a western hat can really turn any outfit into a coastal cowgirl fit.
#6 The Yokes on You
Yokes on a shirt scream Coastal Cowgirl.
#7 Neutral Tones
Cowgirls are super neutral when it comes to fashion. Wear colors such as white, beige, brown, black, nude, tan, ivory, gray, navy, and blush. Avoid wearing neon or vivid colors.
If you’d like to add a pop of color, try adding some pastel colors such as pale pink, seafoam green, or light yellows.
#8 Linen and Cotton
Go for breathable fabrics such as linen and cotton. We love the texture of linen dresses. It’s classy yet comfy.
Overalls are a Coastal Cowgirl must! We love loose-fitting overalls that you can wear over a cute tank top.
#10 Peasant Dress
Peasant dresses are super cute and comfortable. The ruched and ruffled details give off effortless prairie girl vibes. Pair it with some boots and a hat and you’re in Coastal Cowgirl mode.
#11 Fringe is Fun
We love fringe details. Try to find your fringe on handbags, boots, pants, and jackets.
#12 Gingham is a Cowgirl’s Best Friend
#13 Leather EVERYTHING
Did you know that cowgirls wear cowhide? We love wearing leather jackets, shoes, handbags, and even leather hats.
#14 Vestie Bestie
Find a cute vest that will up your Coastal Cowgirl game! Choose a vest that contrasts or matches your bottoms.
Kimonos are a great accessory. It helps protect you from the sun and looks gorgeous when you walk and the kimono flows after you.
#16 Straw Handbag
For accessories, we love a good straw handbag.
A bandana is a must-have accessory for all coastal cowgirls. We love cotton bandanas because they’re easy to wash and can be worn around the neck or as a head scarf.
