Kendall Jenner’s Blue Cowboy Boots Are So Unexpected

Milan Fashion Week just started on Wed. and Kendall Jenner's blue cowboy boots have already stolen the show. On her way to the Fendi presentation, the model opted for the brand's knee-high, embossed boots in the coolest turquoise hue. Though an unexpected choice, Jenner's boots paired seamlessly with her off-duty outfit — and they're about to inspire a few of yours, too.

Jenner is always pushing the limits when it comes to fashion, whether she tucks a vintage t-shirt into a pair of tailored pants or pairs baggy jeans with a super-elevated top. And on the first day of Milan Fashion Week, Jenner turned to a pair of baby-blue knee-high cowboy boots to add some character to black cut-off shorts and an oversized blazer. The look was topped off with a colorful, graffiti-print Balenciaga handbag for some extra flair.

Although the cowboy boot trend continues to pop up amongst your favorite street style celebrities, Jenner's boots aren't exactly your average style. Fendi's Cutwalk Cowboy Boots feature a crocodile-embossed finish and a two-toned wooden heel. They come in several colors — in addition to turquoise, they're sold in yellow, light pink, and chocolate brown — and lengths (including Jenner's knee-high style, as well as a more traditional calf length).

Get The Look

Sure, Jenner's blue boots were a bold move, but you don't have to be a runway model — or a cowgirl — to pull off Western-inspired shoes. As evident by Jenner's look, cowboy boots work best when they're contrasted with an edgy outfit (think: less denim and more leather). Ease into the trend by choosing neutral-colored boots and wear them under your favorite ankle-grazing dresses or skirts.

If you're tempted by Jenner's daring colors, try offsetting a louder shoe color with a more subdued outfit — you'll want your boots to be the focal piece of your look.
