Kendall Jenner was photographed in a stylish Western-inspired look while out in Beverly Hills, California yesterday.
With ’90s-style undertones, Jenner wore a brown tank top, embroidered with white words on the bodice, and a matching maxi skirt. The Hugo Boss campaign star paired the two-piece set with a black rectangular clutch and simple gold studs, accessorizing sparingly. The highly sought-after model and former “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” star wore her black tresses and parted in the middle for that popular “clean girl” look.
Adding a western touch, Jenner stepped into shiny black cowboy boots with a pronounced heel and pointed toes. The chunky shoe choice offsets the fitted ensemble, creating an interesting silhouette that leans sideways and is oversized at the bottom and slimming at the top.
While these boots are a more modernized take on the iconic style, there are elements of the shoe that harken back to the original. The cowboy boot is a rustic Americana style of shoe marked by a pointed toe and raised stacked leather heel. Most commonly made of leather, cowboy boots have a shaft that extends almost to the mid-calf of the wearer.
This style of boot often features artistic inlays and overlays as decorative elements on the upper and on the vamp. True to their name, cowboy boots were first popularized by Western ranchers in the 1860s, with a sturdy construction that holds up to the daily routine of riding and herding better than shoes. standard of the time.
When she’s not hitting the runway, Jenner wears strappy sandals and mules from brands like Amina Muaddi, Bottega Veneta and Saint Laurent. For casual ensembles, she can be seen with Nike and Converse sneakers, Birkenstock sandals and a range of boots.
