The western trend is officially back! And while we love the style, it is a look that can be a bit tricky to wear, because, let’s face it, cowboys can go terribly wrong if you don’t wear it properly. But fear not—we’ve broken down what kinds of boot to look for and how to wear them.
The key to making it cool and less cowboy is the color and silhouette of the boots—you want to look for something that looks modern, i.e. patent leather, or metal and leather details that feel special rather than outdated. And as far as styling, the formula that works best is that they should slightly clash with whatever you’re wearing. So if you’re wearing a flowy floral dress, go for a pair of white patent leather boots for contrast; and if you’re wearing a spring monochromatic pastel look, wear sleek black boots to make the outfit less sweet.
