I think it’s safe to say pink is THE color this year. Always having a finger on the Western fashion pulse, Ariat has released a boot that stays true to the brand’s core while embracing trending pink fashion hues.
Western style has become an absolute obsession of mine. Yes, I know that a guy who rode a horse once in 2004 has no business kicking around in the rough-and-tough cowboy digs, but I will defend myself by saying, "I rode that horse like a total badass." But speaking of badass, one of the best western boot brands, Ariat, just released the most beautiful, handcrafted cowboy boots you've ever seen.
Trevor Brazile, record-holding 26-time World Champion cowboy, had an idea. His seven-year partnership with Ariat allowed that idea to break him from his comfort zone while staying true to the roots of western boots.
Fall is a season that makes it exceptionally easy to get enthusiastic about dressing up. The temperatures dip low enough to green-light wardrobe staples like wool blazers and leather boots, and a fresh palette of burnt color tones and cozy patterns come into focus.

One such combination that always hits the mark is a stylish skirt and boot outfit.

Small-stature women, you’re in luck. There’s a crop of fall trends that, thanks to savvy styling and careful tailoring from petite-friendly labels, are going to look perfect on your frame. Here are seven styles you’ll want in on.
When I was working as a nanny for a wealthy Los Angeles family, one of my tasks involved taking my charge to her twice-weekly riding lesson. One day, among the dirt and horse poo, I noticed possibly the cutest boots I’ve ever seen, worn by adults and children alike. They were ankle-high, with an almond toe, pull tab on the back and a brass front zipper.
Not all of us can be born with the tough aura that surrounds the likes of John Wayne or Kevin Costner’s John Dutton of Yellowstone. However, if you’re feeling up for it, you can sure dress the part. And what better way to kick off your Western-inspired look than with a pair of quality cowboy boots?
The brand name Ariat is synonymous with working Western footwear. And it continues to bring new technology to the forefront of athletes in need of boots. I remember the first pair of Ariats I bought.
