I recently attended a fashion event at a nightclub/casino in Calgary. Since summer and Stampede are upon us, festival fashions were highlighted. Stampede is 10 day festival that highlights Calgary’s cowboy past. I say past because there are very few real cowboys in the City of Calgary.
- crop tops
- denim (cut-offs)
The items I mentioned seemed to be recurring themes in the looks that came out. My favourite look was, you guessed it, the pink crop top and wide legged pants! Coming in a close second was the midi-skirt and white crop-top combination with wide brimmed sunhat.
Why? They are comfortable. They can easily transition from the hot afternoon heat to the cool evening. They are also sophisticated enough that you can go to a lounge after your day and not feel underdressed.
I actually spotted the girl (her name is Sara) wearing my favourite outfit on 17th avenue the next day (in her awesome outfit).
