How To Style Cowboy Boots For Spring, According To Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, & More
From Fendi to Chloé, fashion houses saddled up for the Western wave on Fall 2019 runways, setting the tone for a trend that would transcend lookbooks and dominate pop culture in a major way. If celebrity street style is any indication, cowboy mania isn’t getting reined in anytime soon, and it-girls like Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid are venturing west, demonstrating how to style the cowboy boots, among other seemingly unapproachable staples that comprise the country aesthetic.
If you're iffy on how to master the trend, rest assured that it's easier than it looks. Ahead, four prime outfits from tastemakers to inspire your stylish foray into the Western frontier this spring.
Bike Shorts + Oversized Tee
As the goddaughter of bonafide country style icon, Dolly Parton, Miley Cyrus was wearing cowboy boots long before the latest Western revival. In April, the Tennessee-born singer tapped into her roots while putting a sporty spin on the classic footwear pick, pairing red-embroidered boots with bike shorts, an oversized tee, and a white backpack. The "Nothing Breaks Like a Heart" singer finished the look with stacked bracelets and a Chanel chain necklace.
