For Fall Shopping, Look West
Fall: the season of boots. We’re all ready and excited to get our favorites out for the season, but we want to let you know about the somewhat surprising trend in boots before you do any fall shopping: Western.
Yup, from the runways to celebrities stomping down the streets (Kate Bosworth, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Kate Moss, to name a few), Western boots are back. If you’re automatically thinking that you’re not quite sure if you can pull off the trend, rest assured: we’re sure you can. They’re being brought back to life in luxe fabrics and sleek colors in everything from the classic silhouette to modern styles with graphic lines and beautiful embellishments.
Here’s the how and what to wear when it comes to Western boots:
HOW TO WEAR
Don’t think that Western boots are just reserved for style a la Dolly Parton. They can be worn with any wardrobe. Picture that favorite, quintessential fall outfit: a slouchy sweater, skinny jeans and boots. Western boots perfectly fit the bill for this look. When it gets even chillier, they also work fabulously with trench coats.
For the fashion risk-takers, think Bohemian. Western boots seamlessly finish off vintage-inspired boho looks. Any colored or patterned outfit can be the ideal match for them, as well.
WHAT TO WEAR
There are many more options when it comes to Western boots than you think. At Bluefly, we have options for everyone’s unique style. You can go with the classic leather boots, in a wide variety of colors or animal motifs like snakeskin or cowhide. You can’t go wrong with Frye and we love both their ankle and mid-calf designs with the ubiquitous Western-style embroidery.
Or, you can go for the glam takes on Western like slouchy velvet and suede, or those with embellishments like crystals, fringe or studs. Designs like Marc Fisher Sade Leather Almond-Toe Cowboy Boots and Mia Joaquin Jewel-Studded Western Ankle Booties are the definition of fall style.
If you’re staunchly a fan of all-things modern, you still have a lot to choose from. Look for tonal designs, or those with a more graphic shape; including chunky square heels and sleek ankle booties that have clean, contemporary tops versus the curved tops of the classic Western boot. We’re obsessed with Coach’s Western Two-Toned Boots and Nine West’s Retrolook Wedge Western Boots.
This fall, nail your below-the-knee style. With Bluefly’s huge selection for unbelievable prices–it’s never been easier.
