The Cowboy Boot Trend Just Keeps Getting Bigger and Bigger

It's not going anywhere.

Last Updated on April 24, 2023

If you love cowboy boots, you might be wondering whether this Western staple is still in style this year.

I’m still reeling from Dua Lipa’s iconic Instagram post last year, where she slayed in a bold orange mini-skirt set and black cowboy boots. As much as I’m obsessed with that look, I gotta know if it is still worth splurging on for 2023.

Let’s take it back to the early 2000s, when Selena Gomez was rocking them during her Disney Channel days and Taylor Swift was all about them during her Speak Now era. 

These days, it’s becoming increasingly common to spot celebrities wearing cowboy boots as a stylish and practical choice in their off-duty moments. As well as Dua Lipa, Kendall Jenner loves her vintage cowboy boots.

At Wear Next, we always encourage you to wear what makes you feel comfortable and confident – regardless of trends. They’re cyclical, so hold onto the items you love! But for those who do want a clear answer, we’re here to help.

Although it’s slowly but surely warming up, these boots are wearable with anything from jeans to summer dresses. So will you be wearing them this spring?

Are cowboy boots still in style in 2023?

Western boots have received a designer stamp of approval, thanks to a resurgence in Y2K fashion. This renewed interest in nostalgic trends has resulted in Western boots featuring prominently in recent runway collections from esteemed fashion houses such as Chloé and Chanel. 

The cowgirl vibe has been embraced by both Millennials and Gen Z, who are using the quirky cowboy boot to inject a burst of excitement into their fashion choices. It’s evident that the cowboy boot has a moment when you look on TikTok, with a whopping 830.4 million views on the hashtag #CowboyBoots to date. 

Are cowboy boots good for long walks?

Cowboy boots were originally designed for riding, with a shape that provided support for the feet and ankles while on horseback rather than for walking.

Nowadays, these boots are usually designed for style rather than practicality. Nevertheless, cowboy boots are generally comfortable and offer excellent foot support. 

However, it’s important to note that for optimal comfort, the boots must fit your feet correctly. Surprisingly, some cowboy boots can be more comfortable than tennis shoes.

How to style cowboy boots on women

Fashion is always subjective, but when it comes to creating an off-duty model look with cowboy boots, I like to keep things simple.

One of my go-to outfits is a classic maxi dress with cowboy boots. It doesn’t really matter the style of the dress; this combo always works.

Another favourite look of mine is boot-cut jeans with a flannel shirt for that authentic cowgirl vibe.
