Cowboy boots are quickly becoming one of my favorite fall trends! But as cool and trendy as they look on celebs and street style stars, they can be an intimidating piece to style. Plus, there are so many different designs to pick from, making it overwhelming to hone in on the right one for you! They span across simple boots that give a subtle nod to western style and graphic styles that feel classically cowboy. I personally feel that a black, knee-high pair is the way to go since you can wear it with everything. I picked up these Stella McCartney boots only a few weeks ago and can’t stop experimenting with different outfit combos. Ultimately, I found that you can wear them in place of pretty much any other boot. If you need a little inspiration on how to wear western boots, scroll ahead for my favorite looks.

Halter Neck Dress & Blazer
The best way to show off any pair of shoe is to go with a minidress. Cowboy boots and a sultry dress alone may feel a little risque or gaudy. So, throwing a tailored blazer on top is a great way to bring in a refined flair that’s perfect for the modern woman.

Tweed Blazer & Slip Dress
I’m all about mixing masculine and feminine aesthetics with a leather edge. One way to achieve that vibe is with a masculine-inspired tweed blazer and classic slip dress. The end result is casual with an elevated element. I’m a neutral lover by nature so I went with a black dress – but you can, of course, up the ante with a colorful or printed frock.
Graphic Sweater & Miniskirt
Miniskirts are all the rage this season and I can’t think of a better way to switch up the leggy look than with western boots. I love how tall boots lend a structured feel to a thigh-grazing hemline while mid-calf or ankle cowboy boots are great for a laidback, effortless vibe.
Leather Jacket, Denim & Turtleneck
For that coveted model-off-duty aesthetic, introduce your cowboy boots to a dark denim and moto jacket pairing. The cowboy boots contrast against the classic uniform and bring in a refreshing silhouette.
