Well folks, I am pleased to say this is a fashion trend that comes around often, so in fact, I am a little wary of even calling it a trend. It is very likely you already own a pair of cowboy boots and just haven’t pulled them out of your closet since the last time you went to a line dancing bar. Or, maybe you are like me and have always had an affinity toward western flair. In any case, we are seeing people rock cowboy boots EVERYWHERE and the outfits are making us swoon. Even in this summer heat, cowboy boots are an unexpected staple that makes a simple outfit feel bold and exciting. But don’t just take my word for it. Let’s explore:
The first outfit formula is long denim shorts, a t-shirt, blazer, and tall cowboy boots. Okay, my interest is piqued!! I love the mix of high and low that makes the outfit feel fresh and exciting. The above photos make such a strong case for this outfit but I have to say I want to see this look on a different body type. I am a size 12/14 so it would be nice to see it on a similar size. What can I say, I am high maintainence! But since I am the one making the case here, I decided to try this on myself to see if it checks out on a size 12/14:
Okay I am not mad about this! The blazer definitely helps elevate the look and essentially creates a look that’s an easy step above the classic cowboy boots paired with cutoff shorts (which is still a great look IMO). If I were to perfect this outfit, I would probably go for a more oversized jacket but I think the outfit formula itself is a winner. This is an outfit I can see wearing to dinner and feeling pulled together yet comfortable.
Prairie dresses and cowboy boots are a match made in chic western heaven! The photo on the left has been on my mind since January 2022 when I wrote this post about the tall boot trend. There is something magic about a hyper feminine dress paired with rustic cowboy boots. In the same vein, a dress with dramatic puff sleeves contrasts with rugged cowboy boots in a really cool way.
Fashion influencer Jessica Torres further proves that a dress and cowboy boots is simply killer. I love how she paired a patterned dress with boots and kept the whole outfit black and white. So cute.
Are you telling me that I, a woman living in 2022, am extremely into this maxi denim skirt outfit?? Because, wow, I really want to be galavanting around NYC in this outfit (even if it is 100 degrees and humid). I think the long skirt with a small tank top works so well with cowboy boots because it’s extremely simple so the boots really make a statement. The belt also adds to the western flair and really pulls the outfit together. I’ll call this a 10/10.
If you need a little more convincing, here are three more outfits we love:

Reformation just dropped their new line of cowboy boots and I’ll bet they are even better looking in person. I personally love #5 for the color, style, and price, and #4 is also a top pick for me because the silver toe box adds such a fun bit of flair.

Lucchese is an iconic brand that has been making cowboy boots since 1883 and they have soo many classic styles, but I am drooling over #2. Those star decals are so cool. Speaking of cool, this pair by Brother Vellies has my jaw on the floor. They are handmade and hand-painted so if you are looking for a pair that is SPECIAL, these are your guy. If you are looking to dip your toes into this trend and want something classic, you can’t go wrong with #4.
Alright y’all, that’s all for now. Let me know if you are already pulling out your cowboy boots to try out any of these looks. Happy Saturday! xx
