As one of Alberta’s most influential women in the fashion industry, Ania Basak knows the ins and outs of dressing for every occasion—even for the greatest outdoor show on earth. Yee-haw it’s the Calgary Stampede! Leading up to the event the founder and president of Fashion Calgary shared her style tips with Global News Morning Calgary on how to dress for rodeo-filled days and exhibition festivities at night.
Basak styled two complete Melanie Lyne and Laura outfits out of five country-inspired looks that combined comfort and style for all-day or all-night wear.
Cooler Days & Evenings Out
Adding a light jacket to your outfit is a great way to be ready for all weather at an outdoor event. For nights out in Calgary, Basak paired pearl embellished jeans with a floral embroidered jacket and a lace detail blouse from Laura. She added a vibrant red neckerchief to top off the rodeo-chic ensemble.
Hot Stampede Days
For warm days in the sun, Basak suggested the season’s must-have piece—the jumpsuit. She styled her model with an Aztec print jumpsuit, a statement necklace and matching earrings from Melanie Lyne. The look proves that accessories really can elevate any outfit!
