Right at the breaking of the noughties, Madonna’s single ‘Don’t Tell Me’ made practically every woman out there wish to become a cowgirl. Her power and self-confidence seemed heightened by the manly checked shirt, studded belt, flared jeans and the essential cowboy boots with whom she stamped the ground in the song's music video. A few years later, Jessica Simpson made almost every man out there wish their female counterparts would be wearing exactly the same look.
The cowgirl style’s heyday passed away right before the influence of sportswear clothing in luxury brands and contemporary players took off. Nevertheless, cowboy boots have been integrated by brands and designers into spring/summer’17 offerings. During the recently-closed edition of Copenhagen Fashion Week, Ganni presented the staple with glossy snakeskin effect and cream and white shades in combination with reinvented rodeo dresses with cut-outs, ribbed knits and python skin shorts with snap buckle belts.
More inspired by the style of celebrities such as Rihanna, Faith Connexion incorporates mid-thigh white cowboy boots completing looks with oversized denim jackets with fringed edges, lace tops and bouclé jackets, configuring a highly-hypeable mix and match that reinforces that cowboy boots aren’t just meant for rodeo looks anymore.
