yet more stetsons and lots of fringing on everything.
Predictably, the style press have advised not wearing the whole look: "a subtle fringe here..." perhaps, or "cowboy boots worn with your usual suit". Actually, I don't know anybody who would consider wearing this whole Wild West look from head to foot. Budding designer-clad cowgirls will need to have access to a lot of rhinestones to buy the entire look, and clever-dick cowgirls will no doubt spend hours sourcing original western accessories at markets. If you're neither of these, and you still want to have a bit of fun with this cowgirl thang, then these fringed leather ankle boots from Shellys are just the thing to bring a little bit of Wild West to your wardrobe. They cost pounds 59.99 (available in sizes 3-8) and you can get them in either black or tan (enquiries: 0181 450 0066). Temptingly useful as the black ones may seem, we prefer the tan ones because they'll look really sexy with jeans. Okay, a few people will have a giggle at them, but they are the very height of fashion and for sixty quid you can't go wrong, can you?
