Although Spring is in full bloom, and 'tis the time to begin shedding the layers, we are still holding onto our boots! Before you begin packing up your winter items hear us out as to why boots are amust to keep in your Spring / Summer wardrobe rotation.
Though there is a common misconception that boots are only for the colder months, we are here to refute that notion. Boots are a great year-round staple, keeping you warm and stylish in the Winter while easily transitioning into a must-have Spring accessory for the chic, cowgirl or not. Boots give us that extra pep in our step for the warmer months, from pairing them with dresses, skirts, shorts, denim jumpsuits or jeans. In reality, it’s all about how you wear them.
Keep scrolling for a curated visual guide that confirms that you can indeed wear fine leather boots in light of Spring time, and while you’re at it, shop our new Spring collection styles that you can wear through the season of "awakening", and every what's best? Every season thereafter.
WITH A SKIRT
Been waiting all winter long to show some leg? Well the weather is heating up, so now’s your chance! Rock your ankle boots or cowboy boots with a denim skirt for an easy casual-cool look; styled with a tee, a sweater, a blouse or a classic button up. Add a lightweight trench coat for a bit of warmthand some extra “cool points.” A flow-y skirt and blouse is another sweet pairing to compliment your Spring style.

An airy, lightweight Spring dress is perfectly grounded by a pair of western or combat boots providing just the right mix of masculine and feminine for your Spring style.

According to Eva Thomas, an editor of Who What Wear, the shorts-and-boots combo is a trend to try for 2020! “I'm trying my hand at wearing ankle boots with shorts...in fact, fashion girls have been wearing them with everything from denim cutoffs to Bermudas to wool trousers.” And don’t stop there! Try pairing denim cutoffs with combat boots and a tee for a casual cool military vibe, cowboy boots to rock the western trend, or Chelsea boots for some rad city style. There you have it, if the “it girls” are wearing it, that means boots and shorts are infashun and we’re here for it.
