The Bold And The Beautiful: How The Fashion World Has Sucked The Western Out Of Cowboy Boots
You babes remember the hit song by Jessica Simpson in 2006, “These Boots Are Made For Walkin?” You know, back when you were a little diva that thought you were the sh*t alone in your room singing along; “These boots are made for walkin, and that’s just what they do…..” The video where Simpson’s totally smokin’ hot back in her prime in those sexy red western cowboy boots with a posse of fabulous women dancing behind her? Yeah, they had on those same sassy boots in brown. Well let me tell you girls, cowboy boots have totally transformed throughout the years since then, and are no longer seen as just a plain old western style. The cowboy boot has now evolved into a bold and eclectic fashion statement, which is getting paired with fashion across the globe. Needless to say, the “cowboy” has been taken out of the former western boot, and the end product is a high fashion signature shoe.
Lately cowboy boots have been seen trending all across the board for 2018, and we don’t have to associate these bad boys with only horseback riding or pretend to be Jessica Simpson in The Dukes of Hazard. Your basic designer ankle booties you own in your closet? Yeah girl, those stemmed from the cowboy boot into more of a modern day look that can transform any outfit into edgy or chic depending on how you style it!
Fendi is also another popular designer who has given this trend a new twist. From ankle to knee high, their designer logo, and embossed leather, this is one designer you cannot pass up dolls! They were seen on the runway rocking the 80’s looks for the Fall 2018 season with a pair of sleek plaid cowboy boots.
If you are trying to look like you’re a Taylor Ham, Egg, & Cheese kind of Jersey gal’ then you should opt for some animal print in your basic boot wardrobe. Trends come full circle, and animal print is trending once again. If you are one who loves attention (who doesn’t, DUH), then look no further than some leopard print. It really eliminates the old western feeling of cowboy and makes you feel and look like a dangerous boss babe. It’s bold, it’s fun, it’s daring and best of all you’re sure to be the talk of the town. If you’re not one for leopard opt for some snakeskin, tiger, or zebra print instead. Get it girlfriend!
Fringe is another popular morphed style to the plain cowboy boots! Zadig and Volitaire is a complete edgy brand for the “bad to the bone” chick. The fringe on these boots alone really make a statement for any girl, and are totally street style worthy.
There you have it babes! While cowboy boots are popular once again, is it a trend you feel is going to make another comeback once it simmers down? Do you feel it is worthy enough to follow personally? Are you going to be like Ariana Grande and be a “Dangerous Woman” and follow the trend, or more like T-Swift and just “Shake it off?”
