I’m half Canadian, and I love nothing more than tapping into my roots by way of my outfits. I wear double denim on the regular, and cowboy is my boot of choice. The latter will come in particularly handy this season, as cowboy boots are set to be one of the biggest trends of autumn/winter 2022. Why? Not only were they prevalent on the runway—everyone from Celine to western-faithful Isabel Marant showcased them in their new collections—but celebrities and fashion people can’t stop wearing them either.
Cowboy boots have long been a part of the cool-girl uniform, with editors and influencers choosing to wear them with everything from dresses to tailoring. Right now, however, I’m inspired by the slew of celebrities who have started wearing them ahead of autumn in the most stylish ways. Take Jodie Comer, for example. At Wilderness festival, the actor paired her cutesy floral minidress with a pair of sleek black leather cowboy boots, turning something that could have easily looked twee into a solid sartorial statement. I don’t consider it a coincidence that Sienna Miller also wore a pair of cowboy boots to a festival earlier this summer. At the same time, FKA Twigs and Emily Ratajkowski have also gone to lengths to prove that cowboy boots belong in the city with their equally impressive get-ups.
