Happy Monday! How is it already July and how is the Calgary Stampede just a few days away?
Being from Calgary, you either love or hate the Stampede, but regardless, all Calgarians embrace it!
When it comes to Stampede fashion, I feel it's definitely shifted from full on "Western garb", to more of a "festival wear" vibe... think band tees, fringe, jeans shorts, and boots.
I have curated a list of the main essentials you'll need for the Calgary Stampede, including articles of clothing, accessories, and even tech gadgets!

A fun graphic tee is a must when it comes to the Calgary Stampede. It's cute, casual, and always a great conversation starter!
Jean shorts are a Stampede staple! I love a high waisted classic blue denim short. High wasited shorts are ideal for crop tops which is also another Stampede go-to.
A pair of cowboy boots is something I'm sure every Calgarian owns. A fun red color adds a pop to any look! Cowboy boots are so cute when paired with shorts, dresses, jeans, or even skirts! So versatile and so Stampede!
A bandana is probably the one item I wear the most over the 10 days of the Stampede. I wear it around my neck like a choker, tied on my bag as an accessory, dangling out of my back pocket, as a belt when wearing high waisted jean shorts... one bandana goes a long way!

A portable phone charger is the best thing I've ever bought. You don't want to be leaving the Cowboys' tent with a dead phone trying to get a cab. Sonix makes the cutest and best phone chargers, and they come in so many colors and prints! Invest in one, you will not regret it!
