Style Inspiration: Fresh Ways to Wear Floral

Friday, May 6, 2016 10:39:50 AM America/Chicago

From large, flashy rose patterns to tiny, delicate prints, you can’t go wrong with a fun and feminine floral print. To avoid looking frumpy or outdated in your floral apparel this season, take these tips from the Love Those Boots blog. Here, we’ll show you all of our favorite new ways to rock floral to a country concert, date night or evening out with the girls.

  • Take your love of floral prints to new lengths with a long, boho-style maxi dress instead of the usual mini dress. This retro throwback style is reminiscent of looks that you love from the ‘70s, and it looks even better in a style with long, flowing sleeves and a plunging neckline.
  • If you still love the look of bouncy floral miniskirts, toughen things up by pairing yours with a great pair of leather cowboy boots. This look is perfect for outdoor concerts, because it allows you to look cute and feminine while still making it easy to walk around all day long. 

  • Wear florals on your pants or shorts, not just dresses and skirts. While many people think of dresses when they think of floral prints because of their feminine feel, these classic patterns look just as great in the form of modern pants and shorts. Try pairing some floral print skinny jeans with some retro-style sneakers and a simple T-shirt, or rock some floral shorts with leather boots and a denim jacket on top. 

  • Choose a floral print scarf and keep the rest of your outfit simple. This tip is especially great if you’re looking for a way to dress up your favorite jeans-and-a-T-shirt ensemble, but it also makes a wonderful way to add some flair to an otherwise simple purse or bag.
  • Go wild with floral print boots. That’s right; you can let your boots do all of the talking by browsing pairs with all-over floral designs embroidered on the sides. Brands like Soto and Country Love offer pairs with all kinds of flashy, eye-catching floral designs, and they’re sure to make you the life of the party at your next party or rodeo. 

  • Rock floral prints in unexpected ways, like on your accessories. Instead of wearing all-over floral patterns in the form of a dress or skirt, try adding a small and understated pop of floral print on your sunglasses or purse. This is especially great if you prefer a more low-key look.
  • For an eclectic, bohemian look, try mixing floral prints with other types of florals or a different pattern altogether. To avoid looking completely mismatched, try choosing only patterns with similar color schemes, and also choose one minimal pattern with one larger, more vibrant pattern.
  • Match your lipstick to your floral prints. Every woman loves a bright, bold lip, especially during the warmer months. No matter what type of floral print you choose, you can tie your whole outfit together by matching it to a bold lipstick in the same basic shade.

10 Ways to Style a Denim Dress This Spring

Friday, May 6, 2016 10:34:13 AM America/Chicago

Denim dresses are all the rage this year, and come springtime, you’ll want to wear one everywhere you go. From short, sassy denim mini dresses to longer, retro-style denim maxi dresses, there’s truly a denim dress for every woman. Here are 10 unique ways to style a denim dress this spring season.

  • Pair it with your go-to cowboy boots in a higher, knee-high style. This is especially great for short mini dresses, but it also looks perfect with mid-length dresses for a more bohemian look. 

  • Wear your dress with short ankle booties to keep things fresh and modern. This type of style is perfect for any type of denim dress, as long as you keep your boots simple and basic in a shade like dark brown, camel or black.
  • Rock a colorful scarf around your neck to add some fresh flair to the otherwise simple dress. For spring and summer, you can’t go wrong with a scarf in neon or pastel hues.
  • If it’s still a bit chilly during the springtime in your area, try adding a jacket on top of your denim dress. You can’t go wrong combining leather and denim, but this style also looks good with a denim-on-denim look (provided that the washes aren’t the same).
  • Layer up with a cozy cardigan sweater over your denim dress. This look is perfect for all of your upcoming barbecues or even country concerts that might get chilly at night. 

  • Add a cowboy hat or a sun hat to make your denim dress perfect for those sunny spring and summer days. Choose something in a simple black or tan shade, or opt for a hat with fun turquoise details.

How to Rock Boots at Your Memorial Day Cookout

Friday, May 6, 2016 10:30:38 AM America/Chicago

Planning a Memorial Day cookout with family and friends? If you have the day off of work to hang out, cook out and relax in the sun, you likely want to wear something cute and comfortable while you do it — and for many cowgirls, that means your favorite Western boots. Here are just a few chic ways to rock your boots at a Memorial Day cookout.

With a Sundress
There are few outfits more all-American or more adorable than a breezy sundress and your go-to cowboy boots. Choose a sundress with a shorter hemline that will keep you cool all day long, and then pair it with either a tall pair of traditional cowboy boots or a shorter pair of modern ankle booties. Whichever style you choose, they’re sure to look great with a lightweight denim jacket on top.

With Cutoff Shorts
For more casual occasions, keep things even more laid-back by pairing your boots with some cutoff denim shorts. Make your own by buying some high-waisted shorts from a local thrift store, or purchase a stylish pair brand new for a more modern look. Add a T-shirt or tank top on top, and even throw your hair up in a ponytail before dashing out the door for all of the day’s fun festivities. 

With a Simple Skirt
For the low-key girl who wants to look cute, but still feel comfortable, a denim skirt is the way to go on Memorial Day. Wear a retro-style flared denim skirt or a slim-fitting style with your favorite cowboy boots in any height. Add a boho-style blouse on top to keep things feminine, and even pair it with your favorite bangle bracelets and dangling earrings to dress up the look.

A Country-Inspired Mother's Day Gift Guide

Thursday, May 5, 2016 4:37:46 PM America/Chicago

Is your mom the type of woman who prefers a country concert over a Mother’s Day brunch? If so, she’ll love the types of unique and Western-themed gifts that we put together here at Love Those Boots. Check out our Country Mother’s Day Gift Guide for a number of great ideas that will show your mom how much you care.

  • A new pair of boots. Just about any Western-loving mom will tell you that when it comes to gifts, you can’t go wrong with a new pair of boots. Love Those Boots offers pairs from Soto, Country Love and other top brands in a wide variety of styles and sizes to suit any woman’s tastes. 

  • A stylish new hat. If you’re looking for a thoughtful Mother’s Day gift on a tighter budget, try a wide-brimmed hat instead.

  • A chic scarf. Just about every woman loves wearing scarves, and your mom is sure to love getting one as a gift. Choose a light, breezy scarf that’s perfect for warm weather in a mix of her favorite colors and patterns.

Your Western-Inspired Guide to Festival Fashion

Thursday, May 5, 2016 3:24:20 PM America/Chicago

Whether you’re going to Taste of Country in upstate New York or to Bonnaroo in Tennessee, festival fashion is always a big deal at any music festival. From the perfect boots to take you from stage to stage to cool, breezy accessories that won’t get in your way while you dance, Love Those Boots has you covered with a complete guide to festival fashion — with a Western flair, of course.

  • Choose the perfect bottoms. Whether you feel more comfortable in cutoff shorts or a cool sundress, you’ll want to choose an outfit that’s cool and easy to wear all day (and night) long. Make your own cutoff denim shorts out of some high-waisted vintage jeans from your local thrift store, or invest in a crocheted pair with some boho flair. If you go for a dress, choose something with a longer maxi length or a short hemline that’s easy to move in.
  • Add a layer on top. If you choose a skirt or shorts, add a top that will keep you equally cool. Celebs love the cutout tank top or halter top trend, but if you want something that offers a bit more coverage, you can’t go wrong with a worn-in band T-shirt.  

  • …And even more layers on top of that. If you’re in a place that might get chilly at night, layers are key. Top things off with an effortlessly cool denim or leather jacket, or keep the bohemian look going with a long, duster-style sweater that you can easily take off and tuck away.
  • Accessorize with sturdy jewelry. Since this is a music festival, you’ll want to choose jewelry that’s not too delicate or priceless. Think chunky turquoise necklaces, wide bangle-style bracelets or stud earrings.
  • Choose the perfect sunnies. Keep yourself protected from the bright, mid-day sunshine with a great pair of sunglasses. Try a classic wayfarer frame, aviator shades or some round, retro glasses.
  • Keep yourself protected with a wide-brimmed hat. You won’t have much fun if you get a sunburn on the first day of the festival, so be sure to keep yourself shaded from harmful UV rays with a hat (but a stylish one, of course). Try a classic cowboy hat or a boho-style sun hat in a cool straw or other natural material. You can even choose a more embellished hat with turquoise or silver details. 

  • Pack your trusty boots. With all of the walking, standing and dancing that you’re sure to do at a music festival, you want to make sure that your feet and ankles stay supported and protected from other concertgoers. For many people, this means a great pair of leather boots that will cover your feet in style. Choose a classic pair of cowboy boots with a high shaft that goes almost to the knee, and go wild with all of the embroidered details or colorful panels that you can find. If you prefer something lower and more minimal, you may also want to wear a pair of roper boots or ankle booties that are just as stylish.

Our Favorite Western-Style Spring Accessories

Thursday, May 5, 2016 3:19:38 PM America/Chicago

Now that spring is here, you’re likely trying to pack away all of your chunky knits and winter scarves in favor of pieces that are lighter, more colorful and perfectly on trend for spring. If you’re looking to add some new items to your wardrobe just in time for the springtime, here are just a few of our favorite Western-style accessories from Love Those Boots.

  • A breezy, patterned scarf. This is an essential piece in any woman’s warm weather wardrobe, mainly because you can wear it so many ways. Toss a colorful scarf on over a plain white T-shirt to dress up a casual outfit, wear it as a belt or even loop it through the handles of your purse.
  • A chic sun hat. Whether you’re going to a tailgate or on a springtime vacation, a good sun hat always comes in handy. Choose one made of natural fibers in a neutral shade that goes with anything.
  • A trusty cowgirl hat. Every cowgirl needs a great wide-brim hat to take her from the barn to a country concert, and Love Those Boots has you covered with a great selection. Choose one in a simple black or brown, or opt for something a bit flashier, like a hot pink hat with turquoise details. 

  • Stylish jewelry. Accessorize your spring look even more with Western-style jewelry that goes with anything. We love turquoise bracelets and rings, long, pendant-style necklaces and dangling silver earrings. 

  • A fresh, new bag. Whether you prefer a carryall tote or a simple, chic clutch, it’s always a great idea to invest in a new purse for the spring season. Try something in a high quality leather that matches your favorite boots.

3 Perfect Outfits for Changing Seasons

Thursday, May 5, 2016 3:15:48 PM America/Chicago

It’s difficult to dress for the day when the weather feels like winter in the morning, but summer in the afternoon. Luckily, Love Those Boots has you covered with some great transitional style tips that will keep you looking your best (and feeling comfortable) from the time you leave your house in the morning to your commute home at night. Here are 3 perfect outfits for changing seasons.

A Layered Work Look
For the office, think layers, layers and more layers. Start off with a great pair of slacks or a long, pencil skirt with dark tights. Next, add a camisole on top that will give you a smooth base and keep you feeling secure. Add a crisp button-down in a stark white or a simple pattern, and then slip a crew-neck sweater over that with just the collar exposed. Finally, top things off with a sharp blazer that matches your skirt or pants. As the day goes on, you can shed first the blazer and then the sweater if you get too hot.

A Casual Daytime Look
If your office is more casual or if you’re simply looking for a go-to daytime look, try pairing your favorite leather boots with some great fitting jeans. On top, add a dark tank top under a breezy blouse, and then add a chunky cardigan or a lightweight jacket over that. Again, you can shed layers or add more with the changing temperatures. 

A Date Night Outfit
For date nights out, you may be worried about looking sexy, but still keeping cozy. Try adding some knit tights under a slim-fitting black skirt, and then pair your favorite boots on the bottom to keep things casual. A loose, sheer blouse on top pairs perfectly with a stylish leather jacket, creating a cool and cute date night look.

How to Throw the Perfect Western Birthday Party for Your Kids

Thursday, May 5, 2016 3:09:25 PM America/Chicago

Does your little cowboy or cowgirl love all things Western? If so, you’ll be happy to know that it’s easy to plan a Western-themed birthday party with just a few smart tips from Love Those Boots. Here are some cute (and affordable) ideas for making even the tiniest wrangler’s birthday party a day to remember.

  • Plan the perfect outfit. First and foremost, your little cowboy or cowgirl will need the perfect outfit to make him or her the star of the show. Start with a great pair of children’s boots from our expansive selection, which includes everything from your basic black or brown boots to pairs with metal grommets, intricate embroidery and even bright colors. Next, add a great pair of jeans and a button-down flannel shirt, or opt for a sweet gingham party dress for a girl. Finally, top things off with a wide-brim cowboy hat that will make your birthday boy or girl feel like a real rancher. 

  • Set a loose dress code. On the invitations, tell the other kids to wear their favorite Western wear to keep things on theme. They can get as elaborate or as simple as they like.
  • Buy some props. In case some guests don’t have their own Western attire, gather some extra cowboy hats that the kids can use to play dress-up. You may also buy some sheriff’s stars, bandanas and other Western accessories from your local party store. 

  • Choose the perfect place. If you live on a farm, take the party out to the barn for an authentic setting. If not, simply set up a picnic table outdoors or even decorate your living room.
  • Set the mood with music. Create a playlist of your child’s favorite country songs to play at the party. This way, you can simply hook it up to the speakers and push “play”.
  • Make Western-themed snacks. For the food, you can’t go wrong with some good old-fashioned country cooking, like barbecued ribs, biscuits and apple pie.

6 Ways to Add Country or Rustic Style to Your Wedding

Thursday, May 5, 2016 2:51:18 PM America/Chicago

Even if you don’t live anywhere near an actual farm, it’s easy to add that country look that you love to your upcoming wedding. With some rustic flair and a few affordable details, you’re sure to have the cowgirl wedding of your dreams with these simple tips from Love Those Boots. Read on to find 10 simple ways to add country style to your wedding.

  1. Choose a dress with a more casual flair. If you’re not exactly the fashionista type, choose a dress that’s just as laid-back as you are. Something with a shorter hemline or boho-style lace would make a great choice for a rustic wedding, and you can’t go wrong with a vintage gown or a family frock from your mother or grandmother.
  2. Rock your bridal boots. Instead of wearing heels, invest in a great pair of cowboy boots that you can wear under your dress. Even if you keep things elegant on top, this will ensure that you have that down-home feel that you love. 

  1. …And even rock bridal party boots, too. Why stop at the bride? Dress your whole bridal party in Western boots, from the bridesmaids and groomsmen all the way down to the smallest flower girl.
  2. Make flower crowns for the ladies. For the women and girls in your wedding, skip the fancy up-do and style their hair in a rustic flower crown. You can make them yourself from fresh flowers in the colors of your wedding, or you can buy them online from a number of bridal boutiques.
  3. Give the men matching cowboy hats. For the men in the wedding, have everyone wear a sharp cowboy hat that matches the suits or tuxedos. This is an especially good option for outdoor summer weddings, as it will keep the sun out of their eyes.
  4. Wrap your bouquets in burlap. Keep things simple even when it comes to the wedding flowers by making your own arrangements and tying them together with baling twine or burlap. This will create a rustic look and save you a bundle on florist fees.
