Hi Pretties! I am back with an all-new, comfort zone busting Ways to Wear It and today I’m going to be showing you how I’m styling my combat boots for winter. Yes I did say combat boots! For these looks I’m pairing them up with some of my winter closet staple favorites. But before I get into that, I want to explain why combat boots. Now we’re into winter 2020 and I really wanted to try something totally new, totally bold, and totally outside of my comfort zone so I bought myself a pair of combat boots. I normally don’t do rugged boots. I do the cutesy little ankle boots and all the feminine-looking boots, but there’s just something that feels so right about these right now. They’re comfortable, they really do go with a lot of things and I think if there’s anything we learned this year is that we like to feel put together AND comfortable.
Black Vest + Plaid Button-Down + Graphic Tee + Black Leggings + Combat Boots
In my first outfit, I pair up my combat boots with my faux leather leggings, a long flannel shirt, and I have on a graphic tee under there that says Cheers! It’s a little bit festive and totally comfortable. Then I threw on my black quilted vest to finish off this cozy and warm casual look.
Plaid Scarf + Black Vest + Neutral Sweater + Black Jeans + Combat Boots
For outfit number two I went with a teensy-weensy little bit more of a dressy look. This time I paired up my combat boots with my black ankle skinny jeans and a cozy beige sweater. I finished off this look with my plaid scarf. If you want some extra warmth you can definitely put on that black quilted vest as a top layer to this outfit to.
Black Cardigan + Solid Dress + Combat Boots
Outfit number three! I can’t say a combat dress and boots is something I ever thought I’d be wearing, but here we are and I’m kind of loving it. I hope you are, too. I am just totally blown away. This is really unexpected and it’s something super far outside of my comfort zone. But I just love the juxtaposition of the tough-looking combat boots with a girly dress. And I don’t know, it kind of makes me feel like a cool mom. Another fun option would be to swap out the black cardigan for a black moto jacket!
Plaid Scarf + Neutral Cardigan + Chambray Button-Down + Dark Wash Jeans + Combat Boots
Outfit number four is venturing back into my comfort zone. I just went in and grabbed a bunch of closet staples. I’ve got my black jeans back on again with my chambray button-down shirt and my cozy beige cardigan. I finished off this look with my plaid scarf and of course, the combat boots add a little bit of edge to all these closet staples.
Solid Tunic Sweater + Black Leggings + Combat Boots
Last but not least, for outfit number five I went with a winter classic, the long tunic sweater and faux leather leggings, updated courtesy of my brand new combat boots.
