There is a new trend on the fashion frontier: cowboy boots. The trend has been popping up on the runway for the past couple of seasons and is finally making its way to everyday street style.
The western look first made an appearance at Calvin Klein and Raf Simon during the Spring 2018 fashion week, and since then, shoe brands like Jeffrey Campbell and Sam Edelman have created chic and affordable versions of the boot.
Cowboy boots were once reserved strictly for country concerts, so it may seem daunting to incorporate them into everyday looks. The boots creates a tricky line between cute and costume-like. The answer lies within styling techniques!
Pair the boot with a sundress and a denim jacket for the perfect careless country look, or go for an edgier route and wear them with black, ripped jeans and a leather jacket.
Not only are the boots stylish but they are also very functional. Think of them as another pair of rain boots. Wear them on those rainy spring days where puddles of mud are inevitable. They are also perfect for a summer picnic in the park with grass and ants.
Right now Free People and Zara have a large variety of the new shoe trend. Be sure to get yours now and stay ahead of the up and coming summer look!
