Cowboy Boots

One person commented about the plaid shirts, "that she didn't want to look like a farmer." Now that's exactly how I first felt about cowboy boots. There's so many cute ways you can wear them though, read on!

The most girly way I've seen is of course with a dress, a la Taylor Swift.

She pairs her boots with cute summery dresses, but with fall coming up you can still steal this style with leggings. A big trend is thick, patterned leggings that you can wea
r even in the winter! I have found them at H&M, but if you like to shop online, stockingirl.com has a GREAT selection. I like this look with simple boots, either a bright dress or leggings, and a cardigan.

Just remember Taylor Swift is a country star and can pull this look off daily and we common folk should just wear them every once in awhile. To avoid looking over-the-top, unless you're going to a country concert, then don't pair these with daisy dukes or the plaid shirts in the previous post, or you will look like you just got off the farm.

The most classic cowboy boot look is under jeans. This is very easy to wear, but I suggest jeans with more of a flare so your calves don't look bulky because of the thickness at the top of the boot.

You can also wear those new denim leggings or bust out your skinny jeans and wear the boots over the jeans. Again, don't wear plaid or big belts to tone-down the farmer look. Try to pair with something a little more edgier.
