Cowboy boots were once reserved for farms and ranches, but firmly in the world of fashion. Celebrities are often spotted in their trendiest garb and high priced handbags while sporting cowboy boots. Wear them with a skirt or jeans for a casual look that's eternally cool. Remember that the best cowboy boots are broken in and often feel as comfortable as slippers, so make good use of them once you have them.
Wearing jeans with cowboy boots looks casual and cool. Skinny jeans work well tucked into cowboy boots in the cool months, while bootcut jeans worn over cowboy boots look great year round. Feel free to mix and match colors. Jeans, like cowboy boots, look more authentic the longer you wear them. If you're opting for skinny jeans tucked into cowboy boots, be sure the jeans are slim enough to comfortably fit inside the boots to avoid a bulky appearance. When wearing bootcut jeans over cowboy boots, remember that it's OK if the jeans have a little extra length to them. Bold cowboy boots in rust orange or red also look great peeking out from beneath jeans.
Dresses look great with cowboy boots. During spring and summer months, wear sun dresses in feminine fabrics and prints to juxtapose rough and tough cowboy boots. Ideally, the hemline of the dress should skim just above or at the knees. In cooler wearing, go for the same look, with tights or leggings underneath the dress. A chunky knit tunic or sweater dress and leggings also works to make cowboy boots look modern.
Guys look best in cowboy boots, when they keep the rest of the outfit low key. You don't want to look like you've been on the ranch all day (unless you have). Stay away from plaid or Western-inspired shirts. For a casual look, don a cotton polo shirt or T-shirt with bootcut jeans that fall over the cowboy boots. For a night on the town, wear a button-up oxford shirt in a rich color like eggplant or navy with dark rinse bootcut jeans and cowboy boots. When dressing up, go for nice cowboy boots in leather or an exotic skin, and be sure they're polished.
