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.

#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.

We love western hats from Augustine, American Hat Company, Gigi Pip, San Diego Hat Company, and Lack of Color.

#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.
