STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Crazy for Combat Boots

Style Advice of the Week

Combat boots are all the rage this season. Think you can’t pull them off? Well you definitely can. Combat boots are incredibly easy to incorporate into any wardrobe. They can be worn with jeans, leggings, shorts and skirts. The Fashionista in the picture above is demonstrating how to pair jeans with combat boots and look super fabulous! If you think combat boots are too edgy for you, think again; what’s really wonderful about them is how versatile they are, and how easily they can be added to a more feminine outfit to toughen it up.

Combat boots were originally worn by military personnel who were training for war because they are specifically designed for a lot of walking, jumping and climbing. Combat boots are typically made out of leather and are great for winter because they lace up tightly on the leg, keeping your feet and ankles nice and toasty!

Combat boots have been spotted on many celebrities such as Miley Cyrus, Dakota Fanning, Rihanna, Kendall Kardashian and Selena Gomez. Military clothing has been shown all over the runway and combat boots definitely follow that theme.

If you need some suggestions for cute combat boots, I’ve got a few for you. The combat boots that I have and love are these “Triumph 1914” Lace-Up Boots and they definitely make a statement! Also, if you are looking for a more classic combat boot look, I would suggest purchasing the ‘Troopa’ Boot by Steve Madden.
