Howdy, cowgirls and all girls who have always wanted to wear cowboy boots! Now is the perfect time to experiment with this type of unique footwear. Country western boots are one of those fashion elements that seems to reappear on the streets every fall. But this fall, they are back in a big way!
You see, during the last year, country boots have popped up on the runway shows of famous fashion brands like Fendi, Calvin Klein and Isabel Marant, as well as the collections of fast-fashion brands like Zara. So, this fall and winter, cowboy boots will be regarded as the biggest fashion statement. However, even though they are trending now, for you to look good in country boots, you need to know a few things. And here are some important tips that can help you bring out your inner cowgirl with style!
Opt for a Simplistic Design
Even if you consider your personal style to be extravagant, never go for loud cowboy boots. Bold colours and overly embellished cowboy boots can only make you look cartoon-ish. Since the cowboy boot is daring on its own, avoid wearing any type of design that may seem over the top. Instead, look for designs that resemble the traditional country boot. Boots in a neutral colour and featuring tasteful details can be easily paired with a variety of outfits, from extravagant to casual. You can even go for popular Australian brands of country boots like for instance R.M. Williams. Another popular line of cowboy boots is Ariat Heritage.
Pay Attention to the Toe and Heel Shape
The most distinctive features of cowboy boots are the pointy toe shape and the high heel (both in women’s and men’s boots). However, it’s best to avoid boots with super pointy toes that can seem outdated. Instead, look for mildly pointed boots that allow your foot to fit in comfortably. As for the heels, the more geometric, the more genuine the cowboy vibe will be. However, make sure that you can comfortably walk in them.
Match Them with the Right Pieces
Wearing cowboy boots won’t be intimidating if you nail the rest of your outfit. To do so, you need to know which pieces correspond well with this unique type of footwear. High-rise jeans are one of those clothing items that perfectly match western style boots. However, try to pair dark jeans with boots in a light colour and vice versa – the contrast will make your footwear stand out in a good way. For an unexpected combo, try pairing cowboy boots with a simple pencil skirt, as long as the boots do not end under the skirt. And while the weather is still dry and pleasant enough, you can even wear your western boots with a long, fluid dress and a similarly long trench coat for a feminine but fierce look.
