I’ve been wanting to put together a Western/Native American type of outfit recently, but I wanted it wearable, not too costumey and suitable for autumn/winter style. So I settled on making it a little bit surfy with warm layers. This outfit obliterates my waist so to create a more flattering look you may want to find a gilet that gives you more of a waist, or swap the gilet for a parka jacket, cinched in at the waist. I can see this outfit being the sort of thing I want to pull on when me and husb are heading out on errands or to the beach for a cold day walk, or if you have kids it’s the sort of thing you might put on to take them down the park.
I found these boots a particular challenge to style, despite me loving them, because they don’t do any favours to short chunky calves, cutting you off high on the ankle. I tried them with black tights and a shortish skirt but felt it made my legs look too dumpy, but I quite liked the look with black jeans. If you have slimmer calves, or are a bit taller than me you’ll have no issues with styling these.
The boots are extremely comfy, made of real suede leather, and feel very solid in construction. The Western-style tassels and moccasin detailing are an awesome update for the upcoming season and can be worn throughout the year – in spring/summer, just pair them with lighter weight clothes.
