Here is a breakdown of some looks you can work with if you are strapped for time and cash:

Wear your hair in a well-brushed ponytail. Finish it off with a straw cowgirl hat and western-style belt buckle. Pair your denim skinny jeans with a fitted button-front shirt and a fancy jewel-embellished buckle to get that rodeo queen appeal. Take it up a notch by buying a lasso and a pair of chaps, which you can wear from the belt downward. Cowboys originally used chaps to protect themselves from sticker bushes and other elements.

Just have they put on kids’ cowboy hats and the rest of the look will follow.
