Long before city slickers became urban cowgirls there were real women who wore western themed clothing for duties on the farm or ranch. City dwellers who escaped to “dude ranches” brought western shirts, skirts, jackets and boots for a taste of the wild west. Throughout the 1930s, 1940s, 1950s and beyond the Western look has thrived and revived into mainstream fashions every 10 years or so, such as with the Western Rockabilly style.
