Just because spring is coming, it doesn’t mean you should pack your combat boots away yet. If you’ve seen the high slopes and the muddy roads of Santa Cruz, you’d believe it when I say combat boots are a must-have in our school. It is impossible to wear stilettos and high heels in our Redwood campus without ruining or tripping over them. The best thing to combat the mud-spattered roads is to invest in a pair of combat boots. They are one of the most loved fashion items because of their versatility and comfort. This Fashionista shows you one of many ways to pair your favorite pair of combat boots with style.

Her black ankle combat boots are made of a shiny faux leather material. In order to bring the focus to her combat boots, she kept her other clothing pieces quite minimal. She paired her combat boots with a pair of comfortable black leggings to visually elongate her legs. She then threw on a lightweight gray sweater for a laid back vibe. The glossy finish of her combat boots adds a nice spark to her otherwise casual outfit.

This Fashionista’s monochromatic ensemble gives her a grungy-chic image. Combat boots are versatile and easy to play around with different types of clothing pieces. It all depends on how you pair your items with them.

How To: The limit does not exist! There are endless ways to wear combat boots. You can toughen up a feminine outfit by simply pairing combat boots with a cute floral dress. If it’s still chilly where you live, you can wear a pair of knee-high socks with your combat boots for extra warmth.
