The last time combat boots were hot was in the early-mid nineties, so it’s about time they made a comeback. Back then, they were being worn with flannel shirts and wooley socks. To pull this look off today, we recommend leaving the alt-grunge pieces where they belong – in our memories and photographs that were developed in an actual lab. The key to keeping this look current is to mix the edginess of the boots with softness, femininity, and contrasting materials. Think if it as opposites attracting and try out one or two (or three or four!) of our favorite looks below.

Dusty rose lace blazer $51.00 from LuLu’s
This lace blazer would be lovely with a simply white T, combat boots, and black leggings. The flowiness of the blazer is a great contrast to the hip-hugging leggings. That goes double for soft pink lace paired with solid black leather boots.
