This is how to wear combat boots in 2023 (2023)

I LOVE the military boots trend for women. It's comfortable, it's cute, it's casual. It's a great shoe for mom.

In fact, since I got my combat boots, I've been wearing them almost every day of the week! Yep, they are that good, that comfortable, and that easy to style.

If you're still not into combat boots, let this post convince you. For all the above reasons. And because they are rude. Go ahead and remove those Doc Martens if you still have them!

Here, I'm sharing exactly how to wear combat boots in 2022. Yep, you can wear them with jeans, you can wear them with dresses... heck, you can even pair combat boots with skirts. That's how.

More than one video person? Check out my YouTube video below.

Boots look with jeans

No need to over complicate this look, you can wear combat boots with jeans.

This look is bold whether you opt for a high-waisted cropped flare or ajeans capri retos.

I paired mine with a basic jumpsuit and it's an easy everyday look. No fuss, no fuss!

Another cute way to wear combat boots with jeans is to tuck them in. Tip: This is a great way to work with the jeans you already have!

PRO TIP: Ideally, you'll want a little gap between the jeans and the boot. I would give you this same style advice if you were wearinganya littleankle boots with jeans. So take stock of your jeans and their lengths and go from there.

Do you tuck jeans into combat boots?

If you want to wear combat boots with skinny jeans and they don't cut, tuck them in. Ideally though, they aren't LONG skinny jeans where you end up with a bunched-up look.

It really doesn't matter which cut of jeans you choose - combat boots look great paired with skinny, flare, straight, cuffed, basically anything!

If they are a little too long, tuck them in. If they are definitely too long, try a different pair of jeans.

Another trick you can try is folding your jeans. This way, you show off your ankle a bit and don't have to worry about the length of the jeans.

I wouldn't wear combat boots with a full skirt; that's a little formal, fitting, and cute for a chunky shoe like this.

The Obvious: Legging Combat Boot Sets

Probably one of the most obvious ways to style combat boots is with leggings.faux leather leggings, (hello, Spanx!) will be one of the best and easiest ways to use them. And you know I like easy outfit ideas around here.

Suggestion:If you go for the Spanx and are under 5'4", order a size small. Mine are NOT small and there is A LOT of bunching when I try to wear them with boots.

Not my personal cup of tea; You'll probably see me in combat overalls and boots, as I'm not one for graphic tees. BUT, I'll admit it's a cute look for a 20-something.

Speaking of 20-somethings, 30-somethings, 40-somethings, and 50-somethings... YES, you can wear combat boots if you're in your 40s or 50s. They are SHOES and surely you remember how popular they were in the 90s.
