Your Guide to Getting Your Giddy-up On

How to sport the cowboy boot for any budget.

Born in the desert of the Midwest, the cowboy boot is gracing streets in every city, and we are absolutely here for it! Celebrities and fashion influencers alike are proving that the shoe staple is not just confined to wear in the winter, rather all year long. There is a cowboy boot worth rounding up for everyone - regardless of your budget!

The Western boot trend has gained well deserved momentum straight from high end runways in recent years. If you are going to don the cowboy boot, chances are you probably don’t want to blend in with the crowd.

With a knee-high length and a bold combination of black leather and embossed cream coloured velvet, Isabel Marant’s Western Boots are certainly show stopping! Like any typical cowboy boot, these beauties feature a Cuban heel and saddle straps on either side.

For an utterly chic look, pair the knee-high cowboy boots with a fun mini dress. Aje’s Collective Beaded Dress strikes the perfect balance between eccentric and classic, achieved through the collared shirt design juxtaposed with the voluptuous puffed sleeves. The fringed marigold adds the perfect splash of both colour and texture.

Loewe’s Paula’s Ibiza oval sunglasses add modernity and drama to the dress and boot combo. The rich red of the frames compliments the warm toned mini dress too perfectly.

To finish off the luxe look, accessorise with gold jewellery. We love Balenciaga’s Gold Loop Heart Earrings made from a gold-tone copper. With more gold mind, we have styled the look with Givenchy’s Gold G-Link Necklace. Undo the top buttons on the shirt dress to expose the understated gold necklace.

Boy-oh-boy do we love a layered, textured, and elegant winter ensemble! For our less look we have done just that – we’re talking a glossy blue blazer, knitted midi skirt and mid-calf cowboy boots.

See by Chloe’s Dany Santiags boots are as western as it gets in the fashion world. They are made from a camel and warm brown leather, fit with a Cuban heel and complete with western inspired stitching and contrast piping – it’s as if they were taken straight from a rodeo.

To add some delicacy to the outfit, we have opted for an earthy toned knitted skirt. Anna Quan’s Hettie Ribbed Long Skirt adds a feminine silhouette to the outfit with the high waist, side button fastening, draping hem finish all in a soft A-line cut.

To match the black buttons on the skirt and black piping on the boots, we love the idea of a black top. A form-fitting turtleneck is perfect for the cooler months, providing just the right amount of comfort whilst managing to synch in your waist. Wolford’s Aurora turtleneck top is made from biodegradable modal blend jersey fabric, which guarantees longevity and breathability.

Rotate Birger Christensen’s Snake effect vegan leather blazer in sky blue contrasts beautifully with the warm brown cowboy boots. The double-breasted blazer has a straight finish – ideal for layering.

Low

Cowboy boots shouldn’t be kept a luxe secret. Our low look is sure to impress and will also keep your budget well in check.

Cotton On’s Marlie Minimal Western Boot is more of an understated and austere cowboy boot. The shoe doesn’t feature the typical western style embroidery, instead, the mix of white and cream fabric, exposed stitching and squared toe does more than enough for the boot.

We couldn’t have a cowboy boot style guide without including a pair of denim shorts. Rolla’s Mirage Shorts are reminiscent of the 70’s with their high waist, raw edging, slim-fit flared cut all in a light wash blue denim fabric. Pairing Glasson’s Tie Back Corset Bustier with the shorts will add structure whilst drawing attention to the waist and exposed décolletage.

The corset is available in three colourways. For a cohesive look choose the oat flat white colour as it complements the cream-coloured boot fabric. The soft coloured outfit needs a bright colour to bring each garment to life. Achieve this by layering Boohoo’s Madison Beer Curved hem oversized shirt over the corset.

For the ultimate colour burst, hang Nasty Gal’s Leather Buckle Bag over your shoulder. The warm yellow contrasts well with the baby blue and will undeniably elevate any outfit.
