If asked what my favorite fall trend is I would easily answer a good pair of boots. From ankle-high to cowboy and above the knee, the perfect pair of boots can transform almost any outfit in an instant. With the perfect touch of edginess, combat boots can turn any woman into a modern day femme fatale.
Originally popular in the '90s grunge era, combat boots are making a comeback with a new sense of style that includes buckles, prints, colors and studs. They can be sophisticated and polished, like this Jeffrey Campbell pair, or the hard and edgy style that we’re used to seeing like in this Steve Madden pair. There are countless ways to rock the military-inspired trend on the street that are sure to get you on the best dressed list at your campus. On a warmer day they can be worn with a pair of high-waisted denim shorts and a cute baggy sweater, or like this Fashionista, they're often styled with skinny jeans or leggings. I especially like how she added an oversized sweater and scarf on top to balance out the look. But styled to perfection these boots can even be the missing piece to counter the femininity of your favorite floral sundress.
Combat boots are popping up on the streets more and more each day, because love them or hate them, Fashionistas rule that they’re here to stay. So play around with this look, they can be tailored to suit almost any Fashionista’s style. But whether you dress them up or dress them down just make sure you do so with confidence, which is key to pulling off any trend.
