College Fashion- Time for combat.

Happy Wednesday everyone!!

The week is HALFWAY OVER WOOOOOO!!!

As I was walking around on campus today, I was on a hunt to find the latest trend. First I looked at what my roommate was wearing, which was super cute. Then I looked at everyone else! What I came up with wasn’t actually surprising, since it’s been a trend for about 2 or 3 years in the US, but I feel like it’s just now getting popular! drumroll please….COMBAT BOOTS!! So I’m sure you’ll agree with me when saying this trend isn’t new, but it’s just now becoming a trend that EVERYONE feels comfortable wearing. Also, I’m going to start a new section every week called College Fashion-where I note something I’ve seen on campus recently, or just a trend that everyone’s rocking! And what better way to start off this section than with combat boots?

The thing I love about combat boots is that you can LITERALLY wear them with almost absolutely ANY outfit!! Dresses&skirts, shorts&pants are all great pairings for these lovely things. Some of my favorite ways to style these boots are:

Winter:

Tights/Leggings under Cut-off jean shorts, a big bulky sweater with an infinity scarf, hair in a topknot(see my tutorial video If you aren’t sure about how to create this!!), and a messenger bag.

Skinny jeans(I basically live in skinny jeans-if you ever see a post with reg jeans, chances are my blog has been hacked!), A big sweater or a henley with a super cool poncho over it, a scarf and a cool sweater.

Summer:

Cut-off shorts, a loose t-shirt(vintage band tees are always fun and unique!), tons of vintage(or just vintage-looking, for vintage can get pricey!) jewelry, messy hair

A circle skirt, a tight tank or shirt with the back cut out, and cool accessories.

Also-combat boots are always fun with some leather, lace, or leather and lace!! Or mix it up with something unexpected-like a really pretty pale pink flowy dress with some dark brown combat boots-the combo is totally sassy and unique. You’ll definitely get some envious stares.

So basically you can wear whatever you want, however you want to with combat boots. They’re literally a gift from heaven. Below, I’ve posted some of my favorite looks and favorite boots!

  1. I’m really loving the theme/design of your site. Do you
    ever run into any internet browser compatibility issues?
    A small number of my blog readers have complained about my site
    not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Safari.

    Do you have any tips to help fix this problem?
