Since we know you're not about to wear your cowboy boots naked à la Kacey Musgraves, you'll probably be needing some outfit ideas for one of the season's biggest trends in footwear. Ganni, Isabel Marant, and classic Western inspired brands like Durango, Frye, and Tecovas have come out with plenty of new iterations, most with exciting details like contrast stitching, playful embroidery, metallic finishes, and even add-ons such as buckles and chains.

Your cowboy boots should wholeheartedly speak to your personality, so think carefully about the clothing you're going to wear with them. If you're still in the market for these, we've lassoed up a handful of our favorite styles on the market, and if you already own them, we bet there's a cool combination here you haven't tried yet. Read on to approach cowboy boot dressing in a whole new light, then click over to our ultimate boot guide to find other silhouettes we're spotting on everyone right now.

How to Wear Cowboy Boots With Bermuda Shorts

Opt for a printed short and a super minimal top, like a ribbed tank or long-sleeved tee.

How to Wear Cowboy Boots With a Midi Dress

Try a style that hits mid-shin to reveal a sliver of skin below your hemline. Bonus points if the color of your shoes accent the pattern on your dress.

How to Wear Cowboy Boots With Denim-on-Denim

Make sure you select a boot cut length that shows off as much shoe as possible, and try to match your denim washes so the boots accent your look and really pop.

How to Wear Cowboy Boots With Biker Shorts

Style them with an oversize statement cardigan that covers the top half of your shorts.

How to Wear Cowboy Boots With Tights

A combination you didn't quite expect, but we highly suggest this season — wear with a tennis skirt and add '90s staples like a bandana and simple gold hoops.

How to Wear Cowboy Boots With a Slip

Add an oversize button-down shirt in a contrasting color and lots of layered necklaces to bring your look some edge.

How to Wear Cowboy Boots With a Blazer

Go for an oversize look and complete with biker shorts or a miniskirt underneath if your boots are knee-high. For Parisian flair, add a beret.

How to Wear Cowboy Boots With a Cozy Sweater

We love to approach this outfit from an '80s perspective and tuck in a straight leg or skinny jean to your boot. Employ the half-tuck trick with your roomy sweater up top.

How to Wear Cowboy Boots With a Long-Sleeved Maxi Dress

You'll be more comfortable in a shorter style since, when you're standing up, the toe and heel of the boot will be all that's visible. To coordinate them with a micro floral print, choose a neutral or earth-toned shade.

How to Wear Cowboy Boots With a Midi Skirt

Tuck in your favorite blouse and separate your look with a wide belt, which also adds a Western tinge and polishes off your outfit.

How to Wear Cowboy Boots With a Graphic Tee

We love putting a Western spin on the classic '90s combination of a slip skirt and graphic tee. Finish with cool, jet black sunglasses.

How to Wear Cowboy Boots With a Printed Dress

When it comes to wearing a busy pattern, you don't want it to distract entirely from your boots, so make sure they're simple in color but come with a noteworthy detail that's easy on the eyes, like contrast stitching. Keep accessories to a minimum.

How to Wear Cowboy Boots With Shorts

Opt for an over-the-knee style and choose a formfitting top or bustier you can tuck into the waistband.

How to Wear Cowboy Boots With Baggy Jeans

Throw on a cowboy hat and a simple, monochrome bodysuit.

How to Wear Cowboy Boots With a Minidress

Add an element of cool but also a layer of warmth when you add a simple white button-down that's at least the same length as your dress.

How to Wear Cowboy Boots With a Turtleneck

Try breaking up your look with preppy details, like pleats or plaid.
