7 Outfits That Prove Combat Boots Are Essential

You’re not still on the fence about combat boots are you? No worries, I was there too. I had reservations about embracing the military-inspired boot this time around. Gosh..what age was I when I was obsessed with my Dr. Martens? I can’t remember, but I do know that since getting my Stuart Weitzman combat boots (see the new version here) earlier this year, I’m yet to find an outfit they don’t complement. Seriously, they go with so much, my other boots are getting jealous. Not yet convinced. Check out these 7 outfits I couldn’t image without combat boots.

An Outfit-Defining Accessory For As Little As $10

Designer patterned tights have been a top choice by fashion enthusiasts this winter (see Fendi pair and Gucci pair). No surprise, they can be so outfit-defining. If you’re like me, however, and you’re a tad prone to reaming tights, splurging on them mightn’t be prudent. Good news is, we can still have fashion fun with all the affordable options on the market. In today’s post, my $10 tights transform my all-black outfit.

Patterned tights

What I’m wearing:

Dress | Tights | Boots (similar, option) | Bag | Earrings

Patterned tights

Get this. My tights are from Target, and they’re $10 (get yours here). Compared to the over-$300 designer pairs, these tights are an easy choice that pack a lot of flavor. How fly is that floral back pattern? There are other equally fabulous options too, from all-over houndstooth (seen worn here) to leopard. All for only $10!

These patterned tights were the perfect complement to my black tunic dress. By the way, the dress is now available in beige and white. I enjoyed wearing it so much that I’m considering getting it in white as well.

The dress has statement puff sleeves, wide cuffs, and a flare peplum. It’s dramatic in the best ways possible. It’s also 100% cotton and so comfortable. I’m wearing it in a size small.
