These past few seasons we have seen a wave of army inspired fabrics and details make their way through the streets and runways. While the original army print is yet to make a comeback, I can't help but notice the amount of combat inspired trends on campus. The latest to grace us is the combat boot itself. Sported on campus by both the punks and preps alike, this boot can be seen with every look! Similar to the likes of the Doc Martin, this rugged boot easily adapts to cargo pants (like today's Fashionista's) or a skirt and tights. Both practical and fashionable, it is no wonder that ladies and men alike have taken this boot and made it their own this season.
Ready to set in line and rock it as well? It doesn't take much adjustment to ones wardrobe to fit this boot in. Looking for something a little softer? Stick to a dark brown that will have softer detailing and will mix well with creamy toned clothing. Tan is also a good option for those looking to play it safe. If you lean towards a canvas boot, similar to a desert boot, it will give the shoe a totally different feel. This black boot is for anyone with an attitude. It is hard to notice in the photo, but our featured Fashionista actually rocked a combat boot with a heel! A heel is a great way to add a feminine touch to this tough look.
Hint: From personal experience, this is a boot best tried on. Find a boot that suits your height and hits you correctly in the leg. Otherwise, look for a boot that you could cuff down to add volume!
