A month or so ago, I found these short, western-inspired booties in a sale on ASOS for £17. They have all-leather uppers with a classic wood stacked cowboy boot heel. Having only ever owned one other pair of cowboy boots when I was much younger and riding horses, I decided that £17 seemed like a good enough price to warrant some experimentation.
So far, I find that these booties look best when worn with an above the knee to midi length full skirt, although I also like them with skinny pants. They also look surprisingly good with a cropped pant, something I would not have thought of initially. These booties really work well at taking some of the sweetness out of a look to give it some edge. Today I paired them with the feminine detailing and prim silhouettes of a beaded cardigan and peplum top with a peter pan collar, worn with a skinny ankle pant. Like a sort of fashion mullet; all business on top, and a foot-stompin' hoedown on the bottom!
