While the end of summer almost feels like it’s getting further away, being confined to heavily air-conditioned spaces helps spur our cravings for Fall/Winter 2016’s trends – and that includes wearing military boots.
With a little bit of sartorial inspiration, you can rock these babies sooner than you think. Savoir Flair looked to the FW16 runways for just that, bringing you five stylish and easy-to-follow tips to wear military boots with what’s already hanging in your closet, followed by our three favorite retail picks to get you started.
A Ladylike Ensemble
Make like Alexander Wang and give your ladylike ensemble a bit of edge by pairing it with combat boots. A cute handbag will add extra charm to the look.
Summer's Favorite Slip Dress
Don’t put away summer’s over-worn slip dresses just yet as military boots will make them feel fresh for the new season, as demonstrated by Valentino.
A Touch of Slouch
If you’re worried that wearing straight-cut trousers with your military boots might feel a tad too masculine, solve the issue by finishing the look with a cool and slouchy crop top, as seen at Louis Vuitton.
Layers of Luscious Satin
The tough edge of combat boots will be perfectly offset by layers of satin with a soft shine. DKNY’s sexy and cool number is a prime example of that.
The Party Dress Reworked
Dig up a proper party dress and make it daytime-ready by pairing it with a long-sleeved turtleneck and, of course, a luxe pair of combat boots. Trust us – and Valentino – on this one.
