Item of the week: the cowboy boots – FashionUnited UK

What it is:

We’ve seen western inspiration slink down the runway over the past
few seasons and it’s safe to say it’s here to stay. The footwear
department seems particularly keen on trends nodding to Americana and
cowboy-inspired designs. Though many styles have made their entry into
the women’s and men’s wear wardrobes, boots are the style of choice
for many brands – whether they come as flats, with low or high heels.
There’s a wide variety of designs to choose from, from low-key, sleek
everyday boots to ones that’ll challenge your western style.

Why you’ll want them:

The cowboy boots appear as a good timeless option if you choose
them pared-back, and are sure to make a statement if you’re drawn to a
more fashion-forward style. In both cases, it’s an easy style that’ll
make an entire outfit. For some brands like Ralph Lauren, the
western-inspired boots are part of their DNA, so you know it’s always
a classic. For others, they’re a surefire way to complete a
total-black look or to complement wardrobe staples such as a white
T-shirt or blue denim.

Where we’ve seen them:

Many collections have recently showcased cowboy boots in their
runway collections, whether it’s for Autumn-Winter 2021, Resort or
Spring-Summer 2022. At Céline, we’ve seen elegant white santiags for
men and knee-high black versions for women whereas Isabel Marant
displayed her now iconic western ankle boots in shiny black leather
paired with see-through knits. A sleek matte option was spotted at
Armani Exchange – paired with oversized white jeans – and Antonio
Marras featured a total look finished with tan low-heel santiags.
Ermanno Scervino was more fashion-forward, presenting a pair of
electric blue boots with stud details while Diesel opted for a navy
blue version.

How to style them:

Black cowboy boots – like our Dorothée Schumacher pair – work well
with a total black outfit that’ll elongate the silhouette and is a
modern iteration of this shoe style. If you’re looking for a pair
that’ll make your outfit stand out, look no further: the Toral
santiags are for you. They’ll look good paired with a tan suede jacket
and white T-shirt. The Shabbies Amsterdam option is ideal for a
striped-back silhouette you can wear daily and Josh V’s ‘Louis’ boots
come in an off-white colour that’ll transition well into autumn.
They’ll look as good paired with a maxi dress as they’ll do with
straight-leg jeans.

The cowboy boots have a vintage yet timeless aesthetic that brands
have been loving to include in their collections. From knee-high
traditional designs to colourful styles, there are many options to
choose from – all styles included. You just have to pick your cue.
