I'm Obsessed With Combat Boots—Here Are 11 Ways I Plan on Styling Them This Fall

There’s no doubt boots are a fall staple, and one style I keep seeing—and wearing myself—year after is the combat boot. They’re an easy way to instantly toughen up and outfit and add a cool, forward edge. Paired with jeans and a leather jacket, they’re the perfect weekend look. But they can also fit into the more traditionally elegant wardrobes—just take a look at how Michelle Amo styled them with a chic suit for an outfit that feels both polished and cool. Want to see other fashion girl–approved looks involving the boots I love? Go on to see 11 combat boot outfits I personally plan on wearing all season long.

Combat boots toughen up a floral puff-sleeve dress, creating a look that's pretty but not overly sweet.

Okay, not all combat boot outfits have to tap into the boots' grunge side. Polish them up with a suiting look and a cool bag.

Instead of reaching for jeans and a tee with your boots, try leather trousers and a knit top. It's a combo that's just as easy to put together but looks far more elevated.

Tap into the '90s aesthetic when you wear a simple slip dress with combat boots. Throw on a cardigan if you need an extra layer.

Seeing as I'm all about sweater vests this fall, too, I'll be trying this casual look the first chance I get.

Again with the '90s! Combat boots undoubtedly have a throwback feel to them, another easy way to lean into that vibe is through a printed mini dress and bucket hat.

You really can't go wrong with a pretty dress and tough boots. It's a match made in heaven, IMO, and even in all-black the silhouette stands out.

Try this trending fall look with combat boots: prep-school on top with a collared shirt layered underneath a crewneck and grunge on bottom with leather trousers and boots.

Another styling trick I love is to marry combat boots with tall socks sticking out. It gives even the prettiest dress a bit of edge.

For those days when the weather can't make up its mind, try an oversized cardigan with denim shorts and boots. It works because it's a little unexpected.

Lastly, keep this comfortable outfit idea involving an oversize shacket and loose jeans in your back pocket for fall weekends.
