About a month into school, the weather isn’t getting cooler, but the workload is definitely picking up the pace. A truly stylish student knows that going to class looking like a hot mess is no excuse. I recommend a staple boot to jazz up an outfit that is sure to combat any course.
Combat boots became a huge hit a couple hears back. One might assume a trend like this was sure to phase out, however this season it’s all about reinventing style. Different colors and shapes are all steps in the right direction. Whether it’s some funky Dr. Martens or military-chic inspired shoes, indulge in color and print to recreate this timely trend into your wardrobe.
This Fashionista was spotted wearing a stunning slit-wrap maxi skirt and simple wool sweater. However, in my personal opinion, it was her ivory Steve Madden Troopa combat boots that gave her an A in runway attire. While her outfit was feminine and classy, her footwear was very gender neutral. The best part about these is that they are unisex and incredibly versatile. Paired with jeans and a blouse or a cute summer dress, combat boots have made their way through various seasons and styles. These boots can add to an edgy look, or they can transform a delicate number into a playful mix of trends.
There’s no flaw when it comes to combating class in this trend. The shoes are comfortable, weatherproof and very pocket friendly. From haute couture to high street fashion, this combat craze is here to stay.
Spotted: Much like this ensemble, Yohji Yamamoto’s fall 2012 ready-to-wear collection saw a mix of feminine asymmetrical apparel with funky combat boots.
