Country music lovers from all over will flock to Nashville, Tennessee in June to kick off summer at the Country Music Association music festival. Country music crooners like Blake Shelton, Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban, Miranda Lambert, and Sam Hunt will all hit the stage during the four-day festival (June 9-12, 2016).

While other music festivals like Coachella are all about flower crowns and crop tops, CMA festivalgoers pay homage to country music with western-inspired clothing and accessories. Whether you’ve got tickets for CMA Music Festival, 2016 Fan Fair X, or have another country music fest on your hit list this season, these 10 fashion pieces will guarantee you’ll be the best-dressed country music lover there.

For the Ladies…

Denim Dress

Denim is always a staple at country music festivals. This year, add your own modern spin with this denim dress ($29.90) instead. Style it with thigh-high boots and you’re good to go.


Wrangler Bandana

Bandanas are another perennially favored country music festival trend. Make your outfit standout from the crowd with this vintage red banana ($68) cinched around your neck with an antique silver pendant.


Fringe Belt Bag

Dancing the night away requires a hand-free bag that’s both chic and functional and this Rebecca Minkoff belt bag ($195) fits the bill. It’s small, but still roomy enough to fit all the essentials.


Western-Inspired Boots

Keep your feet nice and comfortable in these western-inspired pair of booties ($100). They’ll look just as good paired with daisy dukes as they will with a billowy white dress.


Suede Fringe Vest

Fringe? Check! Patriotic stars? Check! This dreamy Free People vest ($228) scores on all counts. Throw it on over a breezy tank top or a dress to instantly elevate your country festival outfit.


For the Guys…

Patriotic Shirt

Speaking of patriotic stars. Anything emblazoned with an American flag will fit right in at any country music festival. We love this t-shirt ($49.50) for its cool and casual vibe.


Western Belt

A country music festival look isn’t complete without a western belt buckle. This leather, tan-colored belt ($14) will standout nicely with jeans. Plus, it’s subtle enough so you can wear it later too.


Denim Overalls

For guys who want to fully commit to the country look, overalls are the way to go. This light-wash pair ($53.50) feels a little retro, but its unique cut and distressed touches keep it modern and fresh, which makes it perfect for the fest.


Cowboy Hat

Wearing a cowboy hat to CMA is practically a requirement. Show your country music pride wearing this black stunner ($88). The size is not too small or over-the-top and the subtle brown leather band gives it a nice pop of color.


Plaid Shirt

At a country music festival, you can never go wrong with a plaid shirt. We’re digging the lightweight feel and blue and white pattern of this one ($47.70).
