I’m happy to hear that y’all have been into my ‘How to Style’ blog posts lately so I’ll be sure to keep them up. This month, I wanted to cover a trend that is everywhere but can be tricky to style: combat boots. Since I love a good dress year-round, I thought it would be fun to mix them in with the edgier look of a combat boot, all while still staying true to my style.
Let me know what you think and what you’d like me to style next.
COMBAT BOOTS I’M INTO
STYLE WITH TIGHTS
I’ve always liked a monochromatic look and all-black adds an even more flattering approach. This Amazon Sweater Dress (on sale for $27) comes in a bunch of colors and is really comfortable (I’m in a small). To warm things up or to show less skin, bring in black tights and flat combat boots so things don’t feel too dressy. Pair with a red or dark lip for intimate holiday gatherings – without the typical sparkle.
PAIR WITH A MIDI DRESS
This Ribbed Midi Dress is slightly form-fitting so I liked the idea of adding these Chunky Boots to give it some edge. These are probably my most worn combat boots of the season – super comfortable. This could be an on-trend and chic look for family photos or an at-home date night.
LAYER WITH A SLIP DRESS + SWEATER
OK so this is actually a set (slip dress + sweater) which I love, but you could easily recreate this look with something you have in your closet. I thought these Taupe Quilted Leather Boots paired nicely off the green and these have been another staple in my closet lately.
