Sheryl Crow's New Clothing Line: "Very Americana"
Sheryl Crow didn’t have to look any further than her own closet to find the inspiration for her new Bootheel Trading Co. line of jeans, vests and T-shirts. “I have an incredible amount of vintage that I’ve collected over the years,” says Crow, whose line (named after where she grew up — “the boot heel of Missouri”) debuts in Dillard’s department stores on Aug. 7. “My style is very Americana. I gravitate to pieces that are American by nature, either western or Depression-era.” When she’s not on tour supporting her latest album, Detours, you’ll find the Grammy winner at home on her Tennessee ranch with her 15-month-old son Wyatt, 16 horses and two Labradors. “I do almost everything in jeans, except sleep,” says Crow, 46, who wanted the denim-based line she calls “comfortable and earthy” to still be affordable for her friends back home. “Denim has become so high-priced as of late. My friends back home don’t want to spend $250 for a pair of jeans. I want them to be able to walk into a medium-priced store and be able to afford a cool pair of jeans for less than 100 bucks.” Crow’s most expensive jeans are $69, with shirts staring at $29 — click here to see the whole line at dillards.com.
