Combat boots are tough-looking leather lace-up boots that are usually slightly longer than ankle boots. They usually come in black or brown. Much like the relationship between Converse and white canvas sneakers, when people talk about combat boots, most of the time they refer to Dr. Martin. Combat boots are so iconic items that you’ll want at least a pair of them in your closet. For this blog post, I’ve rounded up some of the best ways to style combat boots. Let’s look at them now.
Wear it with a flannel plaid shirt and denim jacket
I’ll start the list of ideas with an outfit that uses some clever overlay tricks. For the top, wear a white shirt with a plaid flannel shirt layered on top. Then add another layer with a denim jacket. Complete this stylish look with lots of character with leggings and black combat boots.
Black combat boots with a denim jacket and black skinny jeans
As a casual autumn and winter outfit, you can wear black combat boots with a white T-shirt, a denim jacket and black skinny jeans. Wear a scarf and a knitted hat to complete this comfy-looking and stylish outfit.
Brown combat boots with an army jacket and skinny jeans
Brown combat boots go great with jeans. For example, just wear a black sweater and an army jacket for the top. Pair them with skinny jeans and brown combat boots. Wear a brown or red scarf to complete the look. I can see this as the perfect outfit for casual hangouts in winter or fall.
Wear it with a gray sleeveless print t-shirt and black cuffed jeans
As the name suggests, “combat boots” can make you look sturdy and stylish. Let’s try to wear it so that it feels more like a fight. First, you want to show your arms by wearing a sleeveless t-shirt. Wear black skinny jeans. You want to tie the jeans up so they look like you’re ready to really move your body. Complete the look with the black combat boots. Avoid carrying a feminine purse for a uniform look. It’s sometimes fun to dress like this when friends meet, to surprise them a little and still look decent.
Wear it with a comfy white knit sweater and black leggings
A comfortable white knitted sweater almost always works for a glamorous and feminine look. Pair it with black leggings and brown combat boots. Further enhance your beauty by wearing a gray knitted scarf and hat.
Black leather jacket, gray t-shirt and ripped jeans
Here is another outfit that brings out the “fight” feeling in the combat boots. The outfit is very simple and typical. Just wear a gray t-shirt and jeans with a black leather jacket and combat boots.
Wear it with an oversized, fluffy knit sweater and leather gaiters
For an eye-catching outfit with very contrasting tops and bottoms, you can wear an oversized, fluffy knit sweater for the top. Pair it with leather gaiters and black combat boots. Carry a black handbag so these pieces go well together.
Oversized black knitted sweater with leather skirt
This is an all black outfit that looks surprisingly beautiful and classy instead of looking dark. This is easily my favorite outfit idea on the list. For the top, wear an oversized black knit sweater. Pair it with a black leather mini skirt and black combat boots. These parts just look so perfectly coordinated. Try this minimalist and classy outfit. It doesn’t seem very difficult to do it.
Black mini dress, denim jacket, stockings & combat boots
As can be seen in this previous example, a mini skirt and combat boots combo looks great without stockings. Even so, you can still wear stockings. The outfit just feels more sophisticated than refreshing. Using the example of this outfit, wear a black mini dress with a denim jacket layered over it. You can see the black combat boots are put together with stockings. You can imagine that the look becomes more refreshing and young when there are no stockings. By wearing the stocks, you get a more mature and feminine look instead.
Wear it with a maxi dress and black leather jacket
This is a more unique one that includes a maxi dress. A maxi dress usually doesn’t go well with combat boots because it makes you look too clunky when you put it together. To fix this, the maxi dress you are wearing just needs to be a little shorter so there is likely an inch of skin to be visible between your combat boots and the dress. Also, you’ll want to balance out the clumsiness of the dress with a sleek looking black leather jacket.
Brown boots with a green comfortable sweater and leggings
For a minimalist yet comfy look, consider this outfit, whether you wear it to work or to causal hangouts. It’s a simple outfit that consists of a green comfy sweater, black leggings, and brown combat boots. Add a bit more feminine touch with a linen scarf. It’s one of those outfits that is so easy to take off that you look good, but doesn’t require much attention from others.
All black with a sleeveless T-shirt and leather pants
Here is another “fight” outfit. It’s all black so you don’t look dark and tough, but also make you look taller and slimmer. Wear a long sleeveless t-shirt with leather pants and black combat boots to achieve this cool look.
So there is a list of my favorite ways to wear combat boots. I have to admit that I’m a huge fan of iconic shoes like all white Converse and black Dr. Martins am. They just have that special character in them that never fades over time.
