Equestrian wear is naturally glamorous, but I find that it is also naturally expensive.
Sometimes, when I find an outfit I absolutely love on Pinterest, I’ll try and find similar items that are cheaper and replicate the look for way less money.
This glamorous equestrian wear outfit consists of a luxurious sweater, sequin-lined breeches, beige leather gloves, shined-up boots, a glam sequined belt and some rings to top the look off!
Now, let’s see if we can bring the price down a notch…
I haven’t kept the outfit exactly the same just for personal stylistic reasons. For example, I went for more of a beige rather than a white breech. I’m also more partial to gold rather than silver rings. Finally, I skipped the belt and the cowl buttons.
But overall, I think the changes I’ve made to this equestrian wear look makes it a little bit warmer and brighter – and more glam!

Get Your Own Glam Equestrian Wear – Cowl Top
The top here is classy cowl neck sweater. I’m not a huge fan of the buttons as I don’t think they go that well with the sequins. So, as a result, I’ve included two options here: one with buttons, and one without.
Doublju Brand (No Buttons)
This sweater is super comfortable, with great fabric. It’s meant to fit a little bit on the looser side and there have been some comments that it runs a little small. I would suggest getting a size or two up from whatever you planned on getting initially. If you do that, I doubt it will be too big, since the intention is for it to look oversized anyway.
The polyester/spandex mix not only make the fabric comfortable but means that if you get a little sweaty when you’re riding, it won’t show up like cotton will – it feels more like a work out shirt without looking like one.
My rating only took a hit because of the sizing running a bit small, and because it needs to be hand washed and line dried (although if you’re like me, you’ll just take the risk with the machine anyway!).
- 79% Polyester / 18% Rayon / 3% Spandex
- Made in the USA
- Hand wash cold / Hang or line dry
- Classic fit
Levaca Brand (Buttons)
So I know this isn’t exactly the option in the image because it’s a tunic fit. This means you wouldn’t be able to show off the belt (below) unless you tuck it in. By tucking it in you’re possibly going to add quite a lot of bulk, which could affect the overall look of the outfit.
I’m also not as big of a fan of the material because I don’t like cotton equestrian wear, in case I end up sweating while I’m riding.
Saying that, I do like the pockets on this one and if you add a chain to it, you’d be able to glam it up quite a bit. Additionally, if you’re a big fan of the buttons in the original picture, this shirt’s got them for a great price!
Personally, I like the previous option better but just wanted to add this one in here in case you might prefer it!
- 50% Cotton/45% Polyester/5% Spandex
- Good elasticity, soft & comfortable
- Slimer fit than I would like
Get the Look – Glam Bottoms
Absolutely love these! Love the look of them, the luxurious style, the quality.
I know I know, they’re not quite sequined like in the picture but I think these are even nicer. I actually prefer the patterning, overall. And you’ve got the sparkles that are a little subtler and more classy, but still glamorous.
The material and the fact that they come in so many colors is awesome too, although for this look I would either go for the dark or the beige, pictured above.
This is really another one of those purchases that you can’t go wrong with because of how comfortable and durable the product is.
- Pull-on breeches
- Mid-rise waist
- Silicone grip
- Mesh details for added breathability
- Elastic waist can be a bit on the tighter for first-time wear
- Excellent hold fit
Get the Look – Glam Boots
I was looking here for a dressage boot that would match the picture. Unfortuantley I could not find (for all my hours of digging) an affordable option with the gorgeous back clasp in beige. I would have loved that. I will keep an eye out and include it here if I do find anything.
What I did find were these beauties. I think they’re the next best thing – very shiny, and won’t completely break the bank.
I did take some points off because you do have to pay for shipping with this one. BUT, for a dressage boot, the price is really great so I’m not too fussy about paying the extra little bit for shipping. Especially when other boots are usually a good $100 more than these.
Also, I think the velvet inner leg really adds to the glam style we’re going for in this outfit!
- Tall leather-like dressage boots
- Logo at the outside top of shaft
- Added suede-like inner leg for comfort
- Back zip for easy on/off
- Available in regular or wide
Get the Look – Glam Accessories
Absolutely in love with these gloves – both the breathable design and the look! However, these lost a point on the review becuase sizing can be a little problematic I’ve found. If in doubt at all, maybe order a size up.
- Super grip synthetic grain leather
- Ventilated fingers and thumb
- Patented rein cut design
- Double stitched critical outward seams
- Stretchable flex panel across knuckles provides a comfortable fit
I’m putting this belt here in case you already have breeches that need a belt. Unfortunately, the breeches that I put above aren’t really suited for a belt. However, I still wanted to include this one because I’ve seen a few people wearing it, and it seems to be getting excellent reviews on equestrian wear websites.
I also like the little horse pendant on it. The only thing is that I think the rhinestones can be a little bit too much. If it were me doing this look, I would skip this belt and use the breeches above but that’s just me!
- Adjustable keeper
- Buckle closure
- Rhinstone sparkle
Get the Look – Glam Jewelry
I know in the picture it’s silver but I prefer gold, especially with the beige breeches. I just like putting my own little spin on things. And that’s why you guys read my reviews too, right?
Anyways, I’m really partial to the gold so I’m going to put that in my final calulations but I’ve included a silver collection just below also just in case you guys prefer silver instead. So I got you covered either way!
The reason why I’ve taken off 1 rating is because I don’t like how they only have the one style, and you can’t change the sizing of the individual rings.
- Gold stacking rings which come with ten rings per set
- 10 different sizes, one to fit each finger
- 100% satisfaction and money back guarantee
I love this set, even though it’s in silver. As I mentioned above, I am partial to gold myself. But with this look I decided to include the silver so that we’d be more in keeping with the original design. I know I went off a little far today compared to usual – please let me know below how you’re liking it!
Even though you can’t change the sizing, this set has 4 different style sets you can choose from which I really like so 10/10 for this on from me 🙂
- Silver rings
- 10 different sizes to fit each finger
- 60 days of satisfaction 100% money back guarantee
Glamorous Equestrian Wear – Total Cost & Our Savings!
The total cost as seen in this picture WOULD HAVE BEEN: $412.79
- Tommy Hilfiger Lurex Split Neck Sweater in Black
- Olvossa Equestrian Gold Crystal Belt
- Roeckl Chester Gloves in Camel
- My Barn Child Bling Rings in Champagne
- Olvossa Equestrian White Silicone Crystal High waist Breeches
The total cost for OUR LOOK (which I think is better anyway) is:
>>> Less than $225 <<<
That saves you almost 55%!!!
I didn’t include the boots in either price because I felt like this would be something you are likely to already own. However, if you’re looking for a pair of dressage boots at a more affordable price then I definitely think the boots above are the way to go. That said, I do know that most of you won’t be including this into your equestrian wear purchasing price!
Hope you guys enjoyed this and saved yourself 55% OFF for this outfit!

I love this look! You’re picks are almost identical to the designer ones. I agree, sequins and buttons don’t go so well together. Definitely showing this to my best friend. Nothing better than riding in style for a great price! And it looks super comfortable. Thank you for the awesome post 🙂
Glad you like it! I know right? Buttons and sequins just do not match in my opinion
Happy riding 🙂
These glam items look insane!! I was planning to get a gift for my GF and these are just about the exact things that I was looking for 🙂
The sparkly glam belt looks awesome and I may just buy it. Heritage Leather Riding Gloves also looks awesome!! These can really make a classy girl happy 🙂
Girl I just LOVE the first photo that has the picture of the pink gloves and the princess brooch! I like that there is a classy taste to everything I seen. I have to be careful though because I am allergic to wool and alpaca for some reason I get hives when I wear stuff that has that kind of fabric. The Horze pink pants are too sexy – but I will so rock them! Thank you for giving girls like us more options in regard to Equestrian fashion.
Hey Sophia, Thanks for your comment girl! Appreciate that and glad you like the article 🙂
I appreciate the time you took to find a less expensive alternatives that achieve the same classic look. Love those boots and would just have to have them to complete the look.
I’m all about saving money and like the way you have your material presented. Easy to follow. The sizing information is also deeply appreciated.
No problem Tammy! I know sometimes it’s so frustrating ordering clothes online because it’s so tough to get the sizing right you know? It’s the worst when you’re so excited for something and then it just doesn’t fit and you have to through the hassle of returning it
