Recently, if you’ve seen some of your favourite ‘It girls’ rocking footwear that makes them look like they belong on Little House on the Prairie, don’t be alarmed – it’s all intentional. Designers have taken a turn due West and one of the season’s hottest trends is western-approved boots. In a shift away from classic black ankle boots, fashion-forward cowboy boots are an instant way to vamp up your look and one of the trends we currently can’t get enough of. Check out some of our favourite styles below.
This is the perfect style if you don’t want a pair of boots that go too far up your leg, meaning they sit perfectly with jeans. The hardest decision with these is whether to go for them in black or white.
Style a silky slip dress with a pair of knee-high buckled Western boots, and you’ll feel like the fiercest woman in the world as you strut down the street, trust us.
It’s not surprising that cowboy boots don’t feel like the most glamorous shoes. But you might feel differently with a pair made with luxe satin, super high heels and an embellished bow, making these boots the perfect addition to your next night on the town.
If you’ve scrolled through social media at all this season, you know that animal print is quite literally everywhere. And there’s no better way to rock this trend than with a pair of cowboy boots in a subtle snake print.
While this particular pair is a bit out of our price range, a girl can dream (and save up and eventually purchase). A pair of all black boots can go with just about everything from floral dresses to jeans, proving the utter versatility of one great boot.
