taking the country out of cowboy boots

Heather over at Classy & Fabulous asked me to help her create some outfits to wear with these cowboy boots (ahem, cowgirl boots) she bought and has never worn:

These boots were made for walking, but Heather told me she is struggling to put together an outfit with these cowgirl boots that doesn't make her look straight off the farm (not that there is anything wrong with farms). For inspiration, I turned to country crooner Taylor Swift, who (well, her stylist) has a knack for pairing cowgirl boots with just about anything and looking adorable and chic.

Typically when I think about cowgirl boots, I instantly think dresses. So I shopped Polyvore for some dresses that would give that chic, urban vibe without the rural flare.

Cowboy Boots & Dresses

My advice: Think about pairing cowgirl boots, which can be rustic and masculine, with delightfully feminine pieces. Choose lace dresses or dresses with embroidered details. And don't be afraid to be edgy by adding a leather jacket. A LBD also goes a long way. And if you choose to wear a floral-patterned dress, tone down the pattern with a neutral, solid-colored cardigan. Maybe add a belt for some extra oomph.
I also wanted to give some variety to the outfits by creating some that paired boots with jeans, shorts and skirts.

Cowboy Boots for Every Season

Again, go for feminine details like flowers, sequins, or embroidery. For winter, try matching cowgirl boots with chunky sweaters. A plain white t-shirt is always a possibility because you can always add girly pieces like jewelry to balance out the boots.
 
I hope these outfits give Heather (and you) the confidence to bust out your cowgirl boots more often. I just inspired myself too!

There are lots of manufacturers to choose from all with their very own distinctive types, and this can make the selection
a bit overwhelming.

never found any interesting article like yours.

useful than ever before.
