Western-style footwear is having a major fashion moment right now. Over the past few months, cowboy boots have shaken their rap as costume attire and emerged as a chic, new born-again trend. With a long list of celebrity fans and plenty of designers creating their own version of the style, they’re finding their place as THE boot trend for fall.

Now, we know what you’re thinking: “Cowboy boots?! How is it possible to wear them without looking like you just stepped out of the Wild West?” Let us explain.

Cowboy boots aren’t new, but the way women are wearing them is! Styled correctly, the boot trend looks effortless and cool for fall. As seen on the runways and in street style snapshots of celebrities like Hailey Baldwin, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, and Tracee Ellis Ross, cowboy boots look best paired with a feminine dress or peeking out from under a midi-length skirt.

While they may seem a little unexpected at first, this fall boot trend is here to stay so you might as well embrace it!
