If you own an awesome pair of cowboy boots or a bolo tie, you might wonder if it is appropriate to wear these garments in the workplace. The good news is that if you accessorize and style these items correctly, it is quite easy to get away with wearing western clothing in the workplace and still be considered professional-looking. Here are some tips for doing so.
1. Stick to Khakis and Jeans for Cowboy Boots
The first thing that you want to do, if you are a guy, is to stick to khakis and jeans when you are wearing cowboy boots. This means that you might not be able to wear your cowboy boots to a big meeting with a client if the event requires a suit, but it should allow you to wear them on days when you are just working in the office normally. This will allow you incorporate your boots into your everyday work wear without being considered unprofessional.
If you are a woman, the same rules apply, but you also have the option of wearing a casual dress if your workplace is casual enough that such a dress would still be considered appropriate. Your dress should be the kind of thing that you would wear to a picnic, rather than a fancy cocktail dress, in order to ensure that your boots do not stick out like a sore thumb.
2. Stay Away From Fringe
In order to keep your boots and western shirts from looking too casual, try to find items that don't have any fringe on them. This will make it much easier for you to slip them into your everyday style on the sly, rather than have your outfit scream "western." The only exception to this rule is if you can wear casual dresses to work. It is relatively commonplace in women's clothing to have bags, jewelry, and shoes that have fringe, so wearing boots that have fringe with a cute dress is not going to be the end of the world.
3. Wear Your Bolo Tie With Pride, But Not Too Often
Finally, go ahead and wear that bolo tie with a jacket if it's a normal work day. Stay away from wearing it in meetings with clients where appearance is important. Don't wear the bolo tie more than once every 2 weeks in order to avoid being known as "the guy with the bolo tie."
