How to Wear Combat Boots

2 Outfits That Make the Tough Combat Boot Trend Look Easy

We marveled at them on the runway — but for all practical purposes, how can you really pull off the combat-boot trend? Full disclosure: it's a lot easier than you think. Don't let those tough-girl soles intimidate you. Even girlie girls can style this season's must-have boot. The styling solutions are a click away!

Sophisticated Side

You aren't required to style your combat boots with jeans and a leather jacket; think outside the box, and reinvent your office look. Just add combat boots to a fitted pencil skirt and a slouchy sweater for a modern take on workwear classics. As for the rest, dress it up with a touch of jewelry and your chicest tote.

Everyday Cool

On the flip side, use the tougher vibe of combat boots to ground a flirtier pleated skirt. Finish it off with a classic Fall sweater and a utilitarian anorak for the perfect everyday look.
