Kate Moss made fashion headlines yet again for plucking her cowboy boots out of the obscurity of her 90’s closet. Cowboy boots have come full circle and are enjoying a major moment. A cowboy-inspired western boot craze has swept the northern hemisphere. It was singularly the hottest footwear to be seen on the streets of Paris Fashion Week Spring 2019. And who are we to argue with the inimitable style of the Parisians. I’m a boot lover so adore the fact that interesting boots are trending again. It’s time to dig deep into the closet and give my western-style boots, a reboot.
HOW TO WEAR YOUR WESTERN-STYLE BOOTS
The trick to pulling western-style boots off is simplicity. Keep the overall look polished and the adornments to a minimum. That means no frills, fringes, tassels or daisy dukes. You’re not doing a Dukes of Hazard reboot! Let your boots do the talking using your “inside voice”. Here’s how we’ll be styling ours.
KEEP IT CLASSY
