A Season of Layers: We’re falling for the new looks of AutumnPosted by Boot Star | 11.21.2016
WE'VE GOT YOU COVERED
There's no question, we've got you covered with all of your favorite styles for fall. Layer upon layer, you'll find all of them are made as much for style as for comfort. American made classics from Levi's Vintage Clothing, Rockmount Ranchwear, Midnight Rider and Stetson to name a few.
Things that Go Together
Fall + boots. Step into the season with our all-time favorites from Old Gringo, like Old Gringo Chocolate Hawk ankle boots or Nevada Bis Black.
When in Doubt
Reach for the staples in any closet -- a black leather jacket and tee. It doesn't get better than the super soft and comfortable, best all-American- made, Schott Perfecto Jacket. A flannel liner gives it added warmth from the cold, and easily layers over a cozy vintage t-shirt from Midnight Rider.
New season. New Arrivals. Finding something comfy to wear is oh, so simple.Posted by Boot Star | 11.01.2016
Discover your new style for fall. With a chill coming through the air again, give your autumnal look an update. Boot Star has everything you need to stay warm and look hot.
Time to Reboot
Flowers, studs and everything in between. Old Gringo ankle boots give just the right amount of kick to any outfit. Pair them with some weathered skinnies and a tee or even that little black dress.
Perfect Leather Pairing
Nothing gives your outfit quite the same edge as that perfect leather accessory. Toss your accessories in a handmade bag from McFadin, then top the whole look off with a killer Schott Perfecto jacket.
Autumn Attitude: Denim and Leather for the Chilly Weather Ahead!Posted by Boot Star | 09.01.2016
With fall fast approaching, here at Boot Star we’re just happy the temperature has dropped from the triple digits. Bring on the cold, and all the swoon-worthy styles to go with it!
This year we're focusing on that true American staple: Leather. Whether you like it pretty and tooled, distressed and edgy or just covered in fringe, we have bags and belts, leather jackets and boots to fit your needs!
For example, we’re loving these tooled city-style clutches from Que Chula. What a great way to show off your Cowgirl Savvy while looking professional.
Que Chula can translate to "what a beauty!" These handbags are handmade of the finest leather and tooling – the workmanship and details are simply a joy to behold! And in colors that will carry you through from summer to fall with lots of style.
What is the perfect pairing for your leather goodies? Good ol’ fashioned denim. Pair your Boot Star find with your favorite beat-up jeans, or a super cool Dixon Rand Highwayman denim shirt.
Or throw that Levis vintage trucker jacket or
a classic Schott Perfecto Motorcycle Jacket over it all
to keep nice and cozy.
Whatever your take on it, we’ve got you covered in denim, leather and style at Boot Star!

Summer Fashion Trends
Here are the pieces that set the stage for summer ...
Soft sacks are the bag to be seen with and prairie is the new boho with slip dresses moving to the top of the list (with or without a super soft t-shirt underneath), and paired with thigh-high boots!
Pair a gauzy top and skinny jeans with booties, or a tie-front blouse, denim cut-offs and classic cowboy boots.
The bare shoulder trend continues with off-the-shoulder dresses or tops with boyfriend jeans paired with cute booties -- the perfect combination of comfort and style.
Take a long cardigan with you to ward off the chill of the desert nights and wear it over denim cut-offs accessorized with a fabulous tote bag.
And what about men's style, you ask? You can never go wrong with a vintage t-shirt and a trophy buckle with your denim.
When in doubt, don’t think twice about slipping on your favorite pair of cowboy boots. With so much style and versatility, from ankle boots to tall boots and everything in between, there's endless ways to wear cowboy boots.
