If your child is enthralled with the wild west or simply adores horses, a cowgirl costume is the perfect choice for her next costume. Whether you round up the costume yourself or decide to purchase it, be creative and add personal touches that fit the personality of your little one. She will be ready to giddy up in her best cowgirl swagger the moment she puts on all the gear.

There are many options for creating the perfect cowgirl attire. Ask your child if she prefers to dress more casually or wants to be a glitzy cowgirl. For a casual look, the classic option is pair of fitted jeans and a button down shirt. If she wants to be more glamorous, a black skirt with a black button down shirt are also easy to find and put together.


No cowgirl outfit is complete without a pair of boots. For a casual costume, a pair of brown boots works just fine and complements the denim jeans and white shirt. For a glamorous cowgirl though, pair the costume with black boots. To kick up the heels an extra notch, add glitter, ribbons and sparkly nylons.


There is no doubt about it -- really the only accessory you need to make this costume complete is the perfect cowgirl hat. Purchase a plain hat and let your daughter decorate it before the big costume reveal. Whether it is glitter paint or just a sheriff's badge attached to the front, your daughter will have fun creating a hat to show off. A bandanna is also a great, inexpensive piece she can wear around her neck or wrist.


If the costume still does not seem complete, think about adding some final touches. A toy gun and spurs are enhance the authenticity of the costume. Wearing a denim jacket or vest completes a casual look. A rope tied up to look like a lasso is easy to attach to a belt loop.
