Earlier this week my sidebar waved at me with an invite to Shop the Rodeo Trend. A brief moment of confusion, then it dawned: it’s that special time of the decade when we are officially in fashion again. What was only the inkling of a trend in S/S is now fully fledged and has trickled from high end to high street.

There is a downside. For the next few months it will be trickier to spot fellow country music fans out in the real world but, oh, the perks… and, oh, the temptation. So after a snort of indignation at the implication that cowboy boots are ever not in vogue, I got browsing for bargains.

Here are just a few examples of the bounty that’s out there on the high street at the moment. Topshop are definitely in the lead for their wide selection of boots, while daring accessories are a cheaper way to revive the Nashville Nights wardrobe and today, Black Friday deals mean some pieces are up to 50% off.

Tip: if you’re browsing shops online, the trick is to type “western” into search bars, rather than “cowboy”…

My unprofessional side has won out and I haven’t included the favourite pair of cowboy boots I found, because they are mine. Sorry. But if you’re after proper boots or Western gear, our shopping guide has a list of UK suppliers where cowboy boots are thankfully always in fashion.
