Giddy Up, Grrrls!

While the Spring/Summer 2018 collections were all about the chunky trainer, this Fall, brands turned to the WILD FRONTIER of AMERICA!  From Emporio Armani, Isabel Marant, and Dior to more mainstream brands like Zara and ASOS, each brand made a clear case for the iconic COWBOY BOOT!

The jury is still out, however, on whether TALL or SHORT BOOTS will dominate the season. From ankle-length to mid-calf to thigh-high, the revival of the western cowboy boot lies in it’s innate COOLNESS! The idea of tomboyish femininity – grit, buckle, sparkle and shine, adds a flattering punctuation to dresses, skirts and skinny jeans!

You can expect cowboy boots in all shapes, sizes, and fabrics, too.  There’s patchwork and denim, exotic snake skins, platforms, silver-metallic-buckled versions, and edgy squared or pointy-toed options.  And why not turn the volume way up?!  Your legs will get cold this winter, so you may just need to splurge on a pair of Isabel Marant, Thigh-High Cowboy Boots.  Instant-HOT-legs-to-go!  See below.

And, some designers have styles in both tall and mid-calf!  Yes, there’s a “Giddy-up and Go” for every MAGnificent Girl! Just remember, the over-the-knee styles are trickier to wear – if you’re on the petite side, I say stick with the ankle length, but this Fall it’s whatever you feel like finessing, BOSS!
