CORE Shopping Has Your Stampede Style
(photos by: Binzento)
The Calgary Stampede is here in YYC - No, it's not too late to scout your Stampede looks, and no, it's never wrong to dress your best any time of the day. An unique thing that I found about YYC was that this is the only city where retail businesses would make sure they stock up western fashion specifically for the Stampede. For this post, personal stylist Phaedra Godchild of Styleista spent a quick half hour with Binzento at the CORE downtown YYC and dished out contemporary Stampede style suggestions for our ladies and gents.
Phaedra: "Red and rich brown" are great colors for our cowboys. Shirts with micro-print is a way to add details. Try accessories like a "personalized belt buckle", or a wooden watch if you are fashion savy.
Binzento: For me, shirts are shirts during Stampede - no harm adding graphics to your tops if you want to stand out. Try patchwork denim if you are edgy - my favourite brand of jeans for Stampede - or any casual day: Levi's.
Above pieces for guys: Red plaid Premium shirt, Jack and Jones micro-print shirt, pocket square/handkerchiefs, Wewood watch, Diesel bull-head buckle belt, Levi's denim can be found at Urban. Blue plaid shirt, khaki pants, belt, accessories are from Club Monaco. All located inside CORE shopping centre.
Phaedra: "Turquoise and white" are color combination choice for our ladies. Denim top and lace shorts pairing add sex appeal. Must have to finish off the look? Fashoinable "cowboy booties".
Binzento: I like a cowgirl to take the leap and try the concept of masculinity. I think an oversized boyfriend denim shirt and draped dress showed non-conventional Stampede style and boldness. Well then you might ask - "How is that any different than a regular outfit?" Well…finish your look with a cowboy hat!
Above pieces for ladies: Polkadot denim shirt, tear denim shorts, sunnies from GUESS. TNA denim top, Talula grey tank, Wilfred white lace short, Talula jean vest, Wilfred pink long dress are from Aritzia. All located inside CORE shopping centre.
