Some may think that wearing combat boots isn’t something they can pull off, and that in order to wear them you must pair them with a military warfare look. Knock these thoughts out of your head, because everyone can wear combat boots with a range of styles. This Fashionista works her combat boots into a '90s grunge look with an oversized sweater, tall socks that peek above her boots, a skirt and printed tights. Combat boots have hit the mainstream and can now be seen with girly dresses, skinny jeans, leggings — you name it.
Combat boots can be found in an array of colors and lengths. Most come in neutral tones such as brown, black or gray; so decide what color would match with majority of your wardrobe before purchasing your own pair. This Fashionista has a black pair, which can be incredibly versatile and don’t have to be matched with only black accents in one’s outfit. She has brown accented with her satchel, and the two colors complement each other in this case. Steve Madden currently has a great selection of combat boots, and if you are looking to rock the rough look, try my favorite Steve Madden bold, studded combat boots.
You can also tone down the roughness of combat boots by pairing them with girly accents. This Fashionista chose a fitted skirt and tights. Printed tights can be the highlight of your cold-weather seasons. You can incorporate your spring and summer skirts and dresses into your wardrobe all year long if you layer them correctly. This Fashionista has a pair of criss-cross beige tights on. The textured look to her legs catches the eye and makes a statement within her outfit. Find a similar pair of tights from Forever 21, or check out the assortment of choices of tights and tall socks from Urban Outfitters. If you are looking for tall socks to peep above your boots, there are thigh-high socks for your tall boots, and shorter ones like this Fashionista’s to slightly show above your combat boots (or any other shorter boot).
So, in the commands of drillmasters everywhere: Right face, about face, present arms— now at ease, troops. Get you’re combat boots while you can!
