If there’s anything we learned from our pre-teen marathon of Hannah Montana, it’s how to rock a cowboy boot. These days, Miley Cyrus isn’t the only celebrity embarking on the western trend and the soon-to-be fall favorite is styled in delightfully unexpected ways. So we’re here to break down all the best outfits to wear with the cowboy boot rend.
There is an onslaught of western aesthetic for fall, including cow print, bandanas, fringe, and, of course, cowboy boots. However, this season the classic footwear style is updated with a fashionable twist from brands like Rachel Comey, Isabel Marant, and Celine. Along with this sartorial upgrade, the styling ideas have a contemporary feel that will have you wearing western boots for every occasion and from day to night.
Dua Lipa, Kendall Jenner, and Charlotte Lawerence are a few of the stylish celebs who have recently had a cowgirl moment and all in different ways. Lawrence paired her printed boots with a scarf top and patterned denim, while Jenner wore a slinky black slip to dress up her burgundy boots.
Below, we’ve outlined nine unconventional ways to wear cowboys boots that are guaranteed to revamp your fall wardrobe.
