What to Wear to Route 91, Vegas’ Big Country Music Fest

With headliners Brad Paisley, Luke Bryan and Toby Keith, country music fans won’t want to miss the Route 91 Harvest Country Music Fest. It’s the city’s only festival dedicated solely to country’s most prominent names, and a perfect way to say your final goodbyes to the summer season.

Make no mistake, though—this isn’t a typical bohemian gathering that doubles as a place for hipsters to show off their trendy Free People outfits (think Coachella). So while you’re planning your Route 91 wear, consider these Southern-chic fashion elements.

Cowboy boots Flower headbands are to Coachella as cowboy boots are to Route 91. While the casual country listener may not have the traditional footwear stowed away in their closet, a pair of suede booties makes for a suitable alternative. our pick: Laredo women’s Cassie fashion boots, Boot Barn, $134.99, multiple locations, BootBarn.com.

Flannel Another country festival wardrobe essential is a worn-in flannel shirt. And since flannels aren’t solely considered country attire, most concertgoers likely already have one. Country up the look by tying the shirt around your waist, over a pair of jeans or cutoffs. our pick: Any fashionable flannels you can find at Buffalo Exchange, 1209 S. Main Street, 702-791-3960, BuffaloExchange.com.

Cutoff jeans The simple item is a staple in the world of country music. As Frankie Ballard sings, “Nobody wears a pair of cutoff jeans like you do, baby. I love the Southern side of you.” our pick: Women’s Levi’s high-waisted vintage denim shorts, $45+, BaileyRayandCo Etsy, Etsy.com/Shop/BaileyRayAndCo.

Fringe Whether it’s a statement-making fringe vest or a pair of trendy fringe booties, this wardrobe option stays within the Southern theme without going over the top. our pick: Glamorous fringe vest, $12.50, ASOS, US.ASOS.com.

Camouflage While some may associate it with the men of Duck Dynasty, camo is actually a must-have print for the fall. As demonstrated by celebrities such as Rihanna, Kylie Jenner and Cara Delevingne, the pattern can add a pop of Southern charm to any outfit. our pick: Vintage cropped camo tee, $29, Urban Outfitters, UrbanOutfitters.com.

Anything ’Merican When all else fails, think redneck Fourth of July, and let your American pride shine through with red-white-and-blue everything. From crop tops to snapbacks, you can’t go wrong with Star-Spangled Banner prints. our pick: U.S. flag baseball cap, $29, American Apparel, multiple locations, AmericanApparel.com.
