Wrangler Rock 47 shirt
Plus size clothing for cowgirls
As I specialize in equine travel writing and am currently wearing plus size clothing, the folks at Wrangler sent me a Rock 47 western shirt and Q-baby jeans to review. Wrangler wants to make every woman, no matter her size, feel like a rock star.
Rock 47 women’s western shirt
The rust and yellow plaid western shirt by Rock 47 features silver and gold embroidery with a fancy bronze and gold applique on the back of the shirt. The crystal snap closures can be worn closed, or for more freedom of movement, I wear a solid colored short sleeve shirt inside the long sleeved shirt and leave the front open. I prefer riding with long sleeved shirts, no matter the weather, to protect my skin from bugs and UV rays.
The shirt is made of 100% cotton, is machine washable and stays true to size. While this particular shirt may no longer be available on the Wrangler site, the company does offer several styles of plus size clothes.
Whether you ride English, Western, gymkhana, barrel race or simply enjoy a horseback riding vacation in the outdoors, nothing beats a comfortable pair of riding jeans.
I am a fan of knit, stretch denim jeans, but durable cotton (with a little bit of Spandex) is often necessary out on the trail. I learned my lesson on a horseback riding vacation at Rancho de los Caballeros in Wickenburg, Arizona.
After a minor run in with some saguaro cactus, my knit pants looked liked a herd of cats had their way with me – they were shredded up and down my legs. Note to self – always travel with a pair of Wrangler denim jeans.
