Do you think your cowgirl boots are only for special occasions?
Think again. You can sport those cowgirl boots with just about anything!
Of course, some outfits with cowgirl boots are cuter than others. But you really do have a lot of versatility when it comes to pairing them with everyday clothes.
We'll take a look at ten articles of clothing you probably have in your closet right now - and the best way to pair them with cowgirl boots.
1. Distressed Jeans
If you're spending the day on the horse ranch, then you'll want to pair your cowgirl boots with full-length jeans.
You could go with regular old run-of-the-mill jeans and that'd be fine...
But if you want to make your look more trendy, try swapping those regular jeans out for distressed jeans. They'll deliver a much more modern look that will balance the classic look of the boots.
While these might seem like two articles of clothing that are completely opposed, it might surprise you how well they actually complement one another.
2. Button-Down Shirt
If you're looking for that western feel, you can't go wrong with a classic light denim button-down shirt.
But pairing those cowgirl boots with a darker-colored button-down will deliver an element of sophistication to take you from country to chic.
To keep that level of sophistication, however, avoid pastels or plaids. This is particularly the case if your boots are more decorative in nature. Your ensemble could end up looking like a strange Halloween costume.
3. Various Skirts
You can do so much with skirts and cowgirl boots. They're the quintessential pairing.
A mid-thigh or above-knee length skirt will show off both your legs and your boots.
Depending on where you're heading, you could go with a simple, solid-color skirt in a design that matches or complements your boots. Or perhaps you opt for a super cute pleated skirt with a simple design or color.
You may even want to consider a dual-layered skirt - for a more dressed up look perfect for a special occasion.
Whatever you choose, avoid patterns that are too crazy or colors that clash with your boots. Once again, this isn't Halloween.
4. Maxi Dress
If you're seeking a look that's both carefree and stylish, then wearing cowgirl boots with a maxi dress is for you.
Of course, you want to be sure that your maxi dress isn't TOO maxi. If your dress extends all the way down to the floor, it's going to hide your boots.
A few inches will suffice though. For this longer length, consider wearing heeled cowgirl boots.
If you have a maxi with a high-low design, that's even better. It'll show off your boots in the front while leaving a little sense of mystery as you walk away.
Wearing leggings with some sort of simple top is a great way to make your cowgirl boots the focal point of your outfit.
The same trick applies as mentioned above, you're better off going with a solid color versus a patterned legging.
So despite how much you might love your leggings with kittens or skulls and crossbones, save those for a time when you're not wearing your boots.
6. Skinny Jeans
If you're more about the skinny jean look than leggings, no problem. Skinny jeans work great with cowgirl boots.
In fact, cowgirl boots go a long way toward showing off how great you look in those skinny jeans.
Plus, skinny jeans tuck ever so nicely into the boot shaft to give you a straight, clean and taut look.
So even if your cowgirl boots are of the more understated variety, you can achieve an element of classy and chic by tucking them into your boots.
7. Classic Dresses
There's nothing like the Little Black Dress.
Of course, your little dress doesn't have to be black. It can be any color you want. You may even want to play with some subtle patterns on this one.
Add some zest to a simple little number with a pencil cut or an A-line by pairing it with more elaborate boots. It's completely up to you.
The one thing that's still considered a fashion faux pas, however, is pairing that little black dress with brown boots. So stear clear of that combo.
8. Denim Cutoffs
Although denim cutoffs paired with cowgirl boots is a classic combination, it doesn't take much to make the whole ensemble appear cliché.
Unless you're trying to look like you just walked off the set of The Beverly Hillbillies, avoid the cutesy checkered shirt and opt for something more current.
For instance, you could keep the look simple and modern by wearing a simple crop top with high-waisted denim shorts. Or throw on a crew neck t-shirt with a longer cardigan to balance out the look.
Forget about Daisy Duke and make the look completely yours.
A sundress is so simple, yet one of the most divinely feminine articles of clothing there is.
Meanwhile, cowgirl boots are a brand of feminine with a much rougher vibe. So pairing the two makes the perfect balance of yin and yang.
One catch with the whole sundress/cowgirl boot combination is to avoid looking to prim and dated by choosing a sundress with a floral pattern. It's been overdone and now looks old-fashioned and off-trend.
Stick with those solid colors again or, at the very most, a basic or subtle pattern. To make the look even more modern, consider cinching a belt around your waist to accentuate your figure a bit more.
Sometimes all you want to do is throw on a t-shirt and call it a day.
So do it!
It's true that you can wear a t-shirt with almost anything - from jeans and leggings to shorts and skirts.
When donning your cowgirl boots with a t-shirt, the same rules apply. Avoid over the top graphics or patterns.
Keep it simple and solid and you'll be good to go.
