How to Rock: Short Cowboy Boots

6 Sep

I am sure that most of you have seen the new trend for Fall surfacing in the stores, your Lucky magazines and on your celebrity trash blogs, Short Cowboy boots.  This is one trend that I am pretty excited about due to its versatilty and a big girl loves shoes….you always wear the same size shoes…not matter how much weight you gain.

The great things about this trend is that its super versatile and can work for lots of different looks.

Boots with Dresses – This is probably one of the most popular and widely used applications for this trend.  These boots can be worn with any fall dress or even summer dress “falled’ up with leggings or a jacket/cardigan.

Boots with Skinny Jeans – This is a great way to utilize your skinny jeans and change them up with Fall items like lightweight caridgans, flannel shirts or oversized tunics.  Ankle Cowboy boots fit great over the skinny jeans that you already have and make any outfit instantly transformed into the new season.  If you are in need of great skinny jeans, I suggest Old Navy’s Rockstar Jean Legging.  I have these in dark demin and black and I love them.  Super cute comfortable and best of all cheap!

Boots with Leggings – leggings are a great addition to any wardrobe and in the fall they make a great add on peice to help transition some summer items into fall.  Pair leggings with over sized flannel button downs or other tunics to make for a hip bohemian look with little to no effort.  Old Navy has some great styles of leggings with zipper or button details that will look great with boots.
