Nah, that's a bit too Southern. Like the Kentucky side of Cincinnati.
The Midwest has two stereotypes. One is the farmer, the other is urban decay and squalor (see Detroit, St. Louis, Cleveland, etc).
However, a lot of times when they say "midwesterner," they mean specifically upper-midwest (where the 'midwest accent' comes from), like Minnesota, Wisconsin, and the Yoop. This means that what's "current" right now is yeah, that pic Elaur posted.

The younger ones look like kids from anywhere. For older, Carhartt workwear and goatees for men. The middle-aged guys often rock what daughters refer to as a "dadstache." You have to get further south to see western wear like cowboy hats, but there are pockets in the boonies where they try to mimic country-western celebrities. For more on the "dad" look, check out L.L Bean and casual Cabela's, wearing a mobile phone on the belt etc.
If it's a casting call for the average Midwestern housewife/mom, you should wear khakis, a fitted tee, and a button down shirt with 3-quarter sleeves over the top. Trust me. That is the uniform of every mom in a commercial these days.
Yeah, I was thinking "whatever they sell at Old Navy", and then minus 5 years off of any trends on the coasts.

The word "mid-western" generally implies small town people in America's heartland or some bullshit like that. Las Vegas is technically the mid-West, I think, and I certainly wouldn't go to that casting call dressed in next to nothing.
Agree, except Vegas is the Southwest.
