How to style cowboy boots

Cowboy boots have officially made a comeback. You can't scroll through TikTok, look at Instagram or peruse Pinterest without seeing these stylin' boots on everyone from celebs and fashionistas to your very own besties. Why the sudden uproar? Cowboy boots are cute, come in an array of styles and have a flirty heel that makes them fun to wear.


The OG boot

If you like classics, a black or brown boot is the way to go. Traditional cowboy boots are made from leather, but you can also find them in suede and vegan leather. With this streamlined boot, the outfit possibilities are endless. Black boots can be styled with a black mini skirt and bright red top for a fun pop of color. For a more casual look, pair brown boots with jeans and a chunky pink sweater. Black and brown cowboy boots are an essential for every closet.


Blues, pinks and metallics

Now that cowboy boots are hot, retailers are offering more variations on the traditional boot. These chic shoes come in any color you want—hot pink, silver, red—and you can find the perfect pair to brighten up everyday outfits. A super easy way to style colorful boots is with a pair of blue jeans and a frilly top. Or, if you're feeling fancy, try wearing them with a long black maxi dress and some chunky silver jewelry.


Tall v. small

A great twist on the modern cowboy boot? They now come in multiple heights. You can go with the OG knee-high boot or the mega-popular minis. Short metallic boots have become this winter's *it* shoe amongst social media influencers. Mini boots can be worn with a silk maxi skirt and a black tank or with a mini denim skirt and a red sweater. Style tall boots with a grey denim maxi skirt and a black tee and cardigan combo. No matter what color or height you choose, cowboy boots will be a go-to staple this szn.
