Personal Shopper: Non-Redneck Bluegrass Ensemble for JP

JP writes: "My sister and I are going to a birthday party for her best friend on Friday. The theme of the party is country. I have absolutely nothing in my closet that is country/bluegrass appropriate. All that keeps coming up in my mind is denim, sun dresses, cowboy boots, and plaid. Some help pulling together a cute country outfit that doesn't look too 'hick' would be greatly appreciated!"

Are visions of dressing up like an extra from Oklahoma! dancing through your head? Fear not. There are plenty of different ways to go country, and some are more Mumford than Rednex. I opted for less-conventional twists on western staples - ropers instead of cowboy boots and a panama lid in place of the traditional ten gallon hat - to give this look a touch of sophistication without veering too far off-theme. Best of all? The whole package only sets you back $155.

1. Stud Band Straw Panama Hat ($15)
2. Whimsy Tasselled Faux Suede Dress ($25)
3. Turquoise Herringbone Stone Necklace ($15)
4. Same Direction Navajo Woven Clutch ($40)
5. Rocket Dog Soundoff ($60)
