Koolaburra Dame Bootie Featured in NYLON!

NYLON Magazine loves Koolaburra!

Oh, denim…  the one article of clothing that has been the same for ages but never off our minds. From the 50s, 60s, and 70s, to the 80s and 90s– forever iconic and always different. Denim remains the ultimate classic and there’s no classic pairing like denim and boots. Whether your vibe be rock & roll, wild west inspired, or boho– this look is never out of style!

The Koolaburra Dame Bootie was featured in NYLON Magazine’s June/July issue as one of the seasons hottest boots to pair with denim in their ‘Wild for Denim’ Spread! Moral of the story here? Wear it loud and proud! We’re talking loud prints, animal motifs, and leather this fall. The possibilities are endless, and no matter what your denim outfit of the days may be, we’ve got just one boot for your pairings, and boy is she a Dame.


We’ve come up with some of our favorite ways to create the perfect denim inspired ensemble with the Dame Bootie. Boho babes, tom boys, label lovers, and grunge girls alike– we’ve got you covered.

Look 1: We love a good pair of overalls. Try a sleeveless animal print crop top with denim overalls paired with the Dame.

Look 2: Nothing says LA like a pair of vintage denim cutoffs. Set the SoCal mood in a pair of demin cutoffs and a loose white tee paired with the dame. Looking for more? Pop the classic with an animal print purse, like the zebra clutch featured in the spread!

Look 3: More of a floral frock type of girl? Us too — we’ve got the ultimate #boho4ever look for you. Wear the Dame Bootie with a midi length floral dress, denim hobo bag, wide brimmed black hat, and drape your arms in chunky silver cuffs and bangles.

What now? Go out and treat yourself, because you look damned good.

Tag us on Instagram (@koolaburra & #boho4ever) if you try any of these looks or have a denim/boot #ootd of your own to share!

Coachella Playlist: Outkast

Ok, we all know the boys from Outkast have been releasing hits for years. But we’re feeling a throwback to this jam. Remember when “Hey Ya!” first came out? Shake it like a polaroid picture with us. ;)

Coachella Playlist: MGMT

Who doesn’t love some MGMT? These guys have been killing it for years! Lately their sound has evolved into something different, but it still retains the familiarity we’ve come to love from the boys. We are stoked to see the tunes come to life soon at Coachella. Check out the video to one of our favorite new songs by them!

7. MGMT: “Cool Song No. 2″


Okay, but really… Who’s ready for Coachella!? #cantwait

Coachella Playlist: CHVRCHES

We’re super into Chvrches front woman, Lauren Mayberry’s style. We love how she pairs her rock and roll vibe with flawy dresses and playful prints. And her sweet melodic voice? I mean… <3 When this single first came out we were jamming to it in the office and are now so excited to go see them play live at Coachella this year! Who are you most excited to go see?

5. Chvrches: “The Mother We Share”

Coachella Countdown Playlist: Ellie Goulding

The video for Ellie Goulding’s latest single “Goodness Gracious” is the perfect combination of cute, fun, and psychedelic. We love the colors and styling shown… plus, how adorable is Ellie?! She’s our #tuesdaytune for the week as we countdown to Coachella!

4. Ellie Goulding: “Goodness Gracious”

Coachella Countdown Playlist: Lorde

We’re continuing our Coachella Playlist with another #tuesdaytune from the 2014 line-up. We love badass women who are out there doing it and this next artist embodies just that, all at age 17! Lorde’s uniquely intriguing voice has brought her to #1 in the US, making her the first New Zealand solo artist to do so. We can’t get enough of her and the hit that brought her to the states. Ok, ready to jam with us?

2. Lorde: “Royals”

Remember to join us every Tuesday as we release a new #tuesdaytune with another one of our favorite artists from this year’s line up. Enjoy!
