Cowboy Boots with Skirt
I´m sure you would agree that Reese Witherspoon looked cute and comfortable in those cowboy boots.

Cowboy Boots with a Sundress
Taylor Swift does a great job in changing her image from a dainty girly chic into an edgy rocker. But even before she posed for a big brand with her new personality, she already had that little edgy side. She´s spotted for how many times in a cowboy boots and she mostly wear it with a dress.
A pair of boots is capable of bringing a dress out of its elements. It creates a cowboy-meets-girl feel. Choose a sundress in a single solid color and with only very details. Your boots are already a statement so you need not a loud dress.

Alice Greczyn wore her printed and ultra-attention grabbing cowboy boots with a faded gray tight jeans and a simple black top.

Cowboy boots with Tights and Tribal Print
Nicole Ritchie did a variation to her famous tribal-bohemian style by opting for this pair of patent cowboy boots. she paired it with a tribal print jumper layered over by a lavender long cardigan and, well, black tights.
Notice how the tights transition the prints to her boots. The rule of thumb in choosing the perfect cowboy boots for a tribal print is going for a plain, non-embellished pair of boots to tone down the print. In order to achieve a lengthen your legs, match the color of your tights to your cowboy boots. Mimic that casual Hollywood glam, add a fedora.

Few things to note about Cowboy Boots
- Create only casual looks – cowboy boots are meant to complete a chic and casual ensemble. Don´t wear it with a black evening gown. Taylor Swift may have gotten away wearing cowboys with a black mini evening wear to the red carpet, but it doesn´t mean it´s not a fashion faux pas.
- Don´t wear a costume – Avoid matching cowboy pieces, e.g. cowboy boots, cowboy hat and cowboy jumper. Use cowboy boots only to add county-chic and to accent a modern casual outfit.
So tell me girls, do you occasionally wear a county look? How do you style a pair of cowboy boots?
