The western trend has made its way onto nearly every runway and fashion magazine for fall, and I’m loving every minute of it. As I’m flipping through magazines and fashion show images, my initial theory has proven to be correct! You can wear this trend with literally anything. It’s all about your personal style.

I wore two pairs of western boots during New York Fashion Week, and styled them both completely different. Now that I’m back home, I had some fun styling them in my every day attire!

Today on the blog, I’m teaming up with DSW Designer Shoe Warehouse to share my favorite western boots! The best part? You don’t have to be from Texas to love this fall trend.

My Western Trend Boot Picks (plus how and why I styled them the way that I did)

 

1. Bold Western Bootie

 

I love the color red. If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, then you know this color pops up quite often. When I saw these Indigo Rd. Yasmina Western Booties, I knew immediately that I needed them because they would look SO good with my new denim jacket that I love to wear.

The jacket is long and distressed, and the boots were the perfect complement to them. Both are major style statements. I opted for a simple black dress for my photo shoot at the Texas State Fair, however, these boots would look amazing with a great pair of boyfriend jeans and a bodysuit or a high collar, long sleeve, printed mini dress. (Anyone else visualize exactly how you would wear something … down to the print? – I’m a little crazy hah!)

2. Cowboy Chic

I went back and forth with these L’Artiste by Spring Step Elisie Booties for a solid 30 minutes. Are they too western? Are they too funky? Would you guys like them as much as I do? Do I really like these shoes or am I drawn to them because of how different they are?

Well, as you can see, I totally went for it! And probably styled them much different than you’d expect. I love these boots because of how different they are and I wanted to see how to push the limits with them. I think style speaks louder when it is unpredictable. So here we are in a gorgeous mustard mini dress and this was one of my favorite looks to style!

3. MOTO-WESTERN

This Fergalicious Isolation Moto Booties have so much detail and are a fun alternative if you aren’t fully committed to the western trend. I call them “moto-western” because they are a cross between western and moto chic. I love these boots because you can wear them with a dress, jeans or even denim shorts! I opted for an over-sized sweater and black silk skirt. This look is very “fall” and the perfect way to ease into the Western trend!
