How to style combat boots this winter
While winter is just around the corner, we’re starting to swap our summer trainers for warm boots that will stick with us all season. One style that comes back every year and that will never go out of fashion is the combat boot that is both comfortable and stylish. With their chunky soles and ankle-high lacing, they’re a great way to add a grungy edge to an outfit and give an instant cool-girl attitude. Paired with black denim and a leather jacket, it’s an effortless weekend look but they also match perfectly a more feminine style such as a mini skirt or a long coat for a chic but cool outfit.
FOR THE OFFICE
If want to look more polished, there’s plenty of ways to sport the combat boots and make it an office-friendly staple. Choose them in a light colour such as beige, taupe or khaki and in a suede material to keep them more classic. You can easily wear them with a knitted dress and black tights and add an oversized denim coat when you’re out in the cold. It’s a simple and versatile look for busy days that you can also keep wearing for a dinner or drinks – add a cute shoulder bag and you’re ready to go!
For a Sunday brunch
Get out of your comfort zone and pair smooth black leather boots with a punchy red jumper to brighten up your winter weekends. Keep it casual with a pair of cropped trousers to show off your shiny new shoes. When the temperature drops, a puffer jacket will protect you from the wind and add some more texture to your cool Sunday look.
For an uptown meeting
Combat boots and a preppy skirt is the perfect combination of a feminine look with a tough touch. Style your ruffle midi skirt with soft boots with a subtle wooden heel to elongate your legs. Add a tank top and some sparking jewellery for an evening look or a classic shirt layered under a black oversized blazer for a day of meetings in the city.
For a holiday
There’s no doubt that leather slim pants and combat boots make the ultimate rock’n’roll outfit. Embellished leather boots will give a trendy twist to the classic 90s look and fit women of all ages. On top of that, layer a leather jacket with shearling details over a turtleneck to keep you warm and fit a countryside getaway or city break.
For a date
Bring back a retro look by trying out a leather skirt and tights with your combat boots modelled on hiking styles with chunky high heels to feel sexy and confident on a first date. Match your jumper to the bright laces of the shoes or simply snuggle in your favourite vintage sweater for a fashion-forward outfit that will make you feel comfortable if the lunch extends into an afternoon walk. With this unstable autumn weather, bring a long trench with you in case of any showers!
