Giddy-up: Fashion Week Isn't Over, but We Can Already Call This *The* Next Big Trend

Yeehaw.

But that's not all! To show the versatility of the cowboy boot in non-close-to-its-intended usages, here they are topping (or bottoming, lol) off a series of looks from party-ready designer Cinq à Sept. See how they take down the fanciness of a marabou jacket? Clever.
