For the past few years western details have been everywhere on accessories, this year leading to the cowboy boot being one of the biggest footwear trends. Think of Coachella Music Festival what you will, but observing the street style snaps taken there is a great way to find out what is going to big fashion wise for the months ahead and my annual insta-stalking got me desperate for a pair of cowboy boots. Some of my favourite looks came from The Ocean Minded, WhaelseJanice Joostemma and of course Lucy Williams who all seemed to pull off what is quite the marmite statement boot with absolute ease. 

After much searching I finally hunted down a non leather pair from Nasty Gal in black, however my heart still pines for the perfect white pair to wear with my endless collection of little white dresses this summer. In the meantime I have taken on the challenge of sharing with you how to style cowboy boots in three ways. For my first look above I have teamed them with a long sleeve floral mini dress and fedora hat, for a simple and easy look that's a little more adapted for the Great British Summertime and could easily be worn with tights too. 

My second look is a polka dot midi dress and the same fedora hat, with the addition of a waist belt with western detailing. I find midi dresses to be really flattering on a midsize figure, especially if your legs are an area you feel less confident about. The V shape at the front of these boots elongates the legs while the pinched waist belt flatters curves to create a great silhouette, all with a subtle nod to a boho vibe without being too out there. 

Lastly I've team my cowboy boots with faux leather leggings, an over sized t-shirt and print boyfriend fit cardigan for a more wearable day time look. Teaming the boots with black bottoms is a less scary way of trialing out this trend than bare legs, and is the most comfortable of the three looks to wear too. 

Unfortunately the boots I bought have since sold out, however I have found three great non leather alternatives all under £60! 

Left - Pretty Little Thing / £50.00
Middle - I Saw It First / £60.00
Right - Pretty Little Thing / £45.00
