My Girly Twist on Combat Boots

I would describe my fashion sense as classic feminine. In fact, I prefer dresses and skirts to jeans and pants. Today’s post is not the first time I’ve embraced the military look; remember my camouflage pants?  I’m going a step further with my girly twist on combat boots.

Combat boots remind me of how fashion changed in the 60s. Perhaps a revolution from the norm, a counter culture with a younger generation determining a more relaxed and modern approach to style. The bell-bottoms, the mini skirt, and leisure suits a few fashion styles embraced during the 60s.

During the 60s, I do recall being impressionable with my fashions. As a baby boomer, you probably remember Nancy Sinatra’s 1966 song, “These Boots Are Made for Walking.”  That fashion craze of the flat-white boot, otherwise known as go-go boots, was a must-have for me.

Typically I don’t follow trends but like to update my look and wardrobe with fresh pieces most seasons. I never thought to consider rocking combat boots. My inspiration to wear combat boots to see if I could personalize them with my feminine approach.

This Schutz bootie, perfect with a wide, not too high heel, the lacing makes them edgy.
The combat boot is military-inspired; I softened the tough, rugged look with fishnet tights.

Did I accomplish my girly twist on combat boots?  Let me know in the comments section or on my Facebook post. 

Obviously, there’s a great Coronavirus impact on what we do and where we go. However, I believe there’s light at the end of the tunnel, sooner rather than later.  

Please continue to follow CDC guidelines:  wear a mask, social distance, and wash those hands as often as possible.
