How to Style Combat Boots 5 Ways

Combat boots have been one item that has grown on me and A LOT. Not that I didn’t love a good pair of combat boots, but I just didn’t think I would love styling them and wearing them THIS much. I also didn’t expect to be sharing how to style combat boots, but here we are.

There are no right or wrong on how to style combat boots, my tip is to find the one you love, and the one you will get the most cost per wear. You don’t want to buy too heavy boots, or it’ll make them very uncomfortable. So, pay close attention to how heavy they are! Also, invest a little more, and you’ll be sure to find a pair that will last you YEARS and YEARS.
