Cowboy boots are not normally something I would have considered to be a fashion trend, but designers such as Miu Miu, Marc Jacobs, Valentino, and many others have created some unique and embellished styles in this season.

For a more modern take on the cowboy boots, pair ’em with a maxi skirt for a bohemian vibe, or with a motorcycle jacket for a more urban look.

The pantsuit has come a long ways since the 1980’s.  It’s reinvention is both powerful and sexy, with slim cuts, cropped pants, and even worn with lingerie (or, for the more daring crowd, nothing) underneath.  For inspiration, look to celebrities and street style stars who are wearing it in different and new, fashion-forward ways.  Try it in a bold color, like Aida Domenech, above, with sneakers or oxfords, or in a sleeveless style.  The options are endless.

Take some inspirational cues from the 10 outfit ideas below to see how you can style the power pant suit into your wardrobe.
