17 cowboy boots to wear with your summer looks
When it comes to shoes, cowboy boots might not be as controversial like Crocs – but they’re definitely up there. Much like the latter, cowboy boots can be quite difficult to style – but nothing is impossible – and, as fashion continues to look to the 90s and early 2000s for inspiration, it makes sense that celebrities, designers and influencers are bringing cowboy boots back.
The late Princess Diana (aka the model behind Hailey Bieber’s style) made a serious case for these shoes when she styled them over her tracksuit ensemble, pairing the overall look with a blazer and preppy cap. Of course, in the middle of summer, maybe we shouldn’t go out of our apartments with a variation of this look – we don’t want heatstroke in this house! – but, fortunately, there is also a lot of inspiration elsewhere. (Hello, “Permission to dance” from BTS.)
Celebrities like Kendall Jenner, Dua Lipa, Hyuna and, yes, Hailey Bieber have all sported their cowboy boots with clothes more suited to the season – think midi dresses, athletic shorts and swimwear.
Much like Crocs, you just have to keep in mind that if you want your cowboy boots to blend into the outfit, we stand out as the focal point. If you want to break into the trend, try going for neutral colors so you can easily style them with the items you already have in your wardrobe. But if you’re more than ready to go all out ranchera, Etsy, depop, eBay, and other second-hand retailers should have some great one-of-a-kind vintage options. And, so you don’t spend hours looking for these, we’ve picked out some of the best cowboy boots to wear with all your summer looks below:
