Cowboy Boots Are Making Fashion Headlines

Western boots

Yep, they are still making noise in fashion circles. We thought this was a passing fad, but no, these western-inspired boots were all over the SS23 catwalks. We saw colourful iterations at Molly Goddard, unfathomably cool ones at Ganni and more of the traditional at Ralph Lauren. Perhaps it’s time to unleash your inner cowgirl…

 

There’s no question that cowboy boots were big in 2022 – we saw everyone from Bella Hadid to Kendall Jenner sporting a pair. However, this is a look that will continue to strike out this year. We will see them worn with oversize blazers and straight leg jeans, slip dresses or top-to-toe denim à la Ganni. They’re easy, yet tough; quirky, yet practical. If you’re not in the ballet pump brigade, then these are the heels for you.

High street fave, Zara, has gone to town with their ranch style footwear with creations emblazoned with cacti and flames. Mango, Nasty Gal and Stradivarius all have a plethora of affordable styles, some more classic than others, but we’re loving the striking monochromatic designs.

If you’re prepared to invest, Khaite is the label to watch. Isabel Marant is, without doubt, the cult favourite, while Staud’s Wild West ‘June’ boots, crafted from tan suede with contrast top stitching, will potentially have you two-stepping with the style-savvy set. Admittedly, if you’re a fan of Ganni, especially after the brand’s spring/summer 23 Joy Ride show, you will already be coveting the whole collection. We sure are.

Our top tip would be to avoid the fancy dress look, aka Daisy Duke. Wear these with attitude, tuck in loose-fitting jeans or break the rules and pair with a slinky evening dress. Throw on that blazer or bomber jacket and you’re good to go.
