Western boots are a wardrobe staple. If you’re looking to invest in a pair for 2021, you’ve come to the right place.
While cowboy boots have gone in and out of trend constantly over the years, like all trends it seems they always come back into style eventually.
At Wear Next, we believe you should wear whatever makes you feel confident and happy, regardless of trends – so if you love a bit of western, a long-lasting pair of cowboy boots are definitely worth purchasing.
It seems I’m not the only person who feels this way about western boots. According to Lyst, global searches for cowboy boots went up 27% over the past month, with the words ‘croc’ and ‘cow’ amongst the most popular search terms.
This season, influencers are wearing their western boots with floaty dresses and skirts for a cottagecore aesthetic that will work from summer all the way through to autumn.
I love Karen Blanchard’s Ganni boots from last season [below], worn with a simple white dress. Luckily, it’s never been easier to copy the look.
Here are 9 other pairs that will see you through 2021 – available to buy now.
