These 15 Pretty Dresses Were Meant to Be Worn With Cowboy Boots

First, we spotted cowboy boots on the S/S 18 runways of Calvin Klein, Margiela, and R13. Then the trend trickled its way down to our Instagram feeds and into street style IRL. We’ve come to the conclusion that cowboy boots can indeed live beyond rodeos, farms, and purely utilitarian purposes. One place we can’t wait to give them a spin? Weddings. And not just ones held in the countryside.

Sure, the pairing might seem odd at first, but the more you think about it, the more it makes sense. These sturdy styles make for an unexpected and fashion-forward choice for a special occasion. Specifically, think midi hemlines that will still show off the right amount of skin, fun slits where your boots can peek through, or silky numbers that’ll contrast your boots in all the right ways.

Whether these dresses are paired with vintage brown, fiery red, all black, or a glossy white faux-croc pair of cowboy boots, the 15 pretty options ahead are a great place to start pushing the styling boundaries, one wedding at a time.
