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 – but after Beyoncé’s Ivy Park released a Rodeo-inspired collection with adidas, Western fashion has had another resurgence.
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.
They were spotted on the streets for New York during New York Fashion Week too, leading to a 25% increase week-on-week since the event.
This season, influencers are wearing their western boots with floaty dresses and skirts for a cottagecore aesthetic that will work all through the winter.
I love Karen Blanchard’s Ganni boots [below] worn with a simple white dress. Luckily, it’s never been easier to copy the look.
Here are 15 other pairs that will see you through 2021 – available to buy now.
