Style Lessons from the Queen’s of Country

Last Monday, I had the opportunity to attend the Dan and Shay Up Close and Personal event through Country 106.7. While border mishaps had the duo arriving hours late, it was still a wonderful evening with private concert, and meet and greet. Often overlooked in the world of fashion, country musicians have a style all their own. Relaxed denim and cowboy boots may be the norm, but the Queens of Country are stepping up their game, taking their personal style to the next level. In honour of the Academy of Country Music Awards, we’re taking a look at these stylish ladies and their off-duty wardrobes.

Taylor Swift

This singer-songwriter has grown up in front of the camera. Transitioning her signature look from the long, wavy locks of her teen years, to a shorter banged style for her 20’s, Taylor has certainly embraced a more sophisticated style. As the ultimate girlie-girl, she chooses dresses and skirts over jeans.  Long and lean, Taylor complements her figure with ladylike garments, preppy ensembles and pop of colours.  With a best friend in supermodel Karlie Kloss, Taylor has upped her style game as of late.

Carrie Underwood.

Like Taylor, Carrie’s style is girlie, but not in an understated way. Always in the spotlight, she prefers looks with sparkle and shine that complement her bombshell appeal. Big blonde hair, loose curls, and larger than life lashes are her signature look. No matter her clothing choice, a great pair of heels or heeled boots go with everything.

Smart style lessons from Carrie Underwood? Life is short, have fun with your wardrobe, don’t be afraid of a daring print, and add a touch of glitz and glamour to your ensembles.

Miranda Lambert.

This down to earth American girl, has a style that’s all country. While Miranda’s not afraid to dress it up once in a while, she prefers jeans and boots to party dresses and stilettos.  Known for wearing denim on denim, trucker hats, and black tees, Miranda makes everything look good. A farm girl at heart, she isn’t afraid to get outdoors and get her hands dirty. Love her relatable style.
