Kendall Jenner pleads for cowboy boots
Kendall Jenner gave us a dose of street style inspiration this week when she was pictured in Los Angeles wearing two fashion staples: the slip dress and the cowboy boot.
In a post-pandemic world, when shopping for timeless and versatile items, Jenner’s look is a perfect example of how to style simple, easy-to-wear pieces that will never date.
Of course, the cowboy boot is a style that pops up every season, whether it’s the slender, angular fashion of Phoebe Philo’s Céline boots for Spring / Summer 2016 or Raf Simons’ take for Calvin Klein in fall / winter 2017. They were also particularly ubiquitous on the fall / winter 2018 catwalks, at Fendi, Dolce & Gabbana and Emporio Armani. Basically, it’s kind of an accessory to wear forever.
Jenner went for a traditional cowboy boot style – a low-key, mid-rise version in a black and burgundy blend, with a square toe and low heel. Comfortable and wearable (ideal if you’re not quite ready to adopt heels again on this side of multiple locks), it’s also proof that the boots work all year round – even in the spring sun of Los Angeles.
The model paired her boots with a tight black dress that tied at the back and featured a slit on either side of the skirt. She finished her look with a black silk mask, tortoiseshell sunglasses and a minimalist ’90s-inspired crossbody bag.
The slip dress is another item that has managed to achieve ‘staple’ status in recent years, thanks to its ability to be dressed effortlessly. When the style was first introduced as an underwear style as outerwear in the 90s, it was seen as much riskier – and certainly not appropriate as a daytime wear. Today, however, the distinction between casual wear and formal wear is increasingly blurred, with buyers keen to invest in pieces that suit a multitude of occasions.
