Get ready to giddy up this season with one of my favorite trends – the wild west.
New York Fashion Week made it quite clear that the western style trend is in as the cowboy boot was the statement shoe of the season. Street style fashionistas were seen wearing many iterations of the cowboy boot paired with mini or midi dresses, under straight or wide legged jeans and even paired with shorts. If you stick to the traditional way and wear the cowboy boot with skinny jeans, be sure to update the look with an oversized coat or blazer. Leave the plaid shirt for out west – or not. I, for one, am a cowgirl at heart so I may take the look literally…
There are so many boot height options to choose from for this western style trend – ankle to over the knee and any point in between – and materials range from snakeskin, to suede, leather and embellished.
Though I haven’t saddled up to the stores just yet, I have my eye on these fantastic options below. Because I already own these ankle Chloe boots from spring, (Who woulda thought? Last time I wore cowboy ankle boots was in college, Ancona boots anyone?) I am going for a knee height option.

In keeping with this western style trend, another great accessory are the western inspired belts. My favorites are by Isabel Marant which by the way, hats off to her, as the western ankle boot has been part of her staple collection for years. Prada and Saint Laurent also showed some cool studded belt options.

To really top off the look, here are some cowboy hat options to ride the trend.
For you cowboys out there who are reading this, one bit of advice – “Just remember cowgirls can’t be tamed.”
