Cowboy boots aren't just for the boys. Cowboy boots, like jeans, are one of those rustic fashion items that can be femmed up, embellished or worn in all the glory of their original, traditional design and that also that can be paired with casual or dressy clothes.

There are all kinds of western boots styles for different tastes and looks. Exotic skin cowboy boots, roper western boots (which are shorter and have a more rounded toe), smooth leather, distressed leather, retro design, pointed toe or rounded toe designs and eye-catching hues such as pink and red are examples of the diverse styles. Also equally numerous are ways to pair this key fashion item with your outfit. Wear them with above the knee flowing dresses and skirts for a feminine look that also accentuates the boots. Skinny jeans tucked in cowboy boots or worn under boot-cut or flare jeans can be paired with almost any style top for different looks.
The appeal of western boots crosses international boundaries as can be seen from these style icons:
French fashion muse Charlotte Gainsbourg and British trend-setter Sienna Miller love their boots too!
A hit in Hollywood, western boots are favorites of American Idol winner Fantasia, Rachel Bilson and Jessica Alba.
For the most fierce fashionista western boots can add that needed flare to your duds. But let's not forget the boys. My husband is a 'fashionisto' and wore cowboy boots at our wedding with his tux and charcoal gray morning coat. I must say he looked nice! He loves well made shoes and cowboy boots are always on his gift wish list.
Not intending to 'steal his style" I thinks he would love to get me a gift certificate for these beauties. I especially like the ones on the left, the Dingo fringed boot. The holidays will be here soon so I think am going to have to start dropping hints!
