Get Ready for Summer Events & Festivals

We have many style options for any festivals you want to attend this summer. Whether you’re going to a Calgary Stampede event or one of the blues or folk festivals, we have ideas regarding what to wear. It doesn’t take too much planning to pull together a fabulous look.

Western wear 

The Calgary Stampede is known internationally as a huge event lasting over ten days, embracing our Western heritage, culture, and spirit. It includes rodeos, exhibitions, dancing, partying, pancake breakfasts, music, and many other fun events. Stampede is incredible and reaches out into all neighbouring communities. Honestly, we think all the “howdy, how are you?” and “yee-haw, this is fun” sentiments are all about smiles, laughter and community spirit. 

You may think western wear is denim jeans, plaid shirts, cowboy boots, and hats, but there is much more to consider. 


Denim anything and everything is the best start to any outfit. You can’t go wrong with denim pants, a skirt, a shirt or a jacket. Chances are you already have this in your closet, and you need to update it a little.


If you’re looking for denim, try to find something you will wear again. Any style of denim is good. Boot-cut and flare are classic denim pants, but you don’t have to limit your denim choice to only one style. 

Boots & Sandals

Do you wear a boot or sandal? We think you should decide which suits you best. 

You have to love a gorgeous cowboy boot that you can wear year after year. They look lovely styled with all denim and can take almost any dress or skirt and give an instant Western flavour. 

Say yes to adding a little sparkle.

A leather sandal or clog looks excellent, too. 


Denim jackets can give a touch of Western style. Long cardigans also work well.

A denim jacket is a classic piece to own.

Skirts, dresses and belts 

All lengths of dresses and skirts are great. Belts can be coordinated with your outfit to give it an up-to-date style. Our Brave Leather belts come in many styles and colours.

Have fun kicking up your heels in a statement pair of cowboy boots.

Belts and hats are a perfect addition when styling denim this summer.


Finding and wearing a great shirt is essential. Our summer weather can be unpredictable, and there are often fluctuations in temperature and precipitation. Lightweight button-up shirts can work well with denim. 

It’s optional to layer a tank top or tee shirt underneath a button up shirt.

Music Festivals

Natural fibres such as cotton, silk and linen are comfortable. Layer your sleeveless top or dress with a sweater or jacket for the cooler evenings. The bohemian vibes of Johnny Was make this collection a favourite to wear to all the events you are attending and beyond. 

A Johnny Was embroidered top is a great piece to wear to a relaxed event.

Linen with embroidery detail looks relaxed.

We hope you have fun styling your summer look. We’re a proud, locally owned small business, and we believe it’s cool for you to be comfortable all summer. Drop by soon to see our best style options for you.
