The Winter Boot Trend Fashion Girls Are Obsessed With


Fashion girls know how to make, well, everything look chic and effortless. One item we aspire to pull off with a similar panache is winter boots. Let’s face it, most of the time we look and/or feel clunky in weather-appropriate styles as they don’t exactly look awesome with our everyday attire. This season, however, combat boots are the trend du jour amongst It girls and our solution to looking a heck of a lot cooler this winter.

Everyone from Kaia Gerber to Gigi and Bella Hadid has been rocking combat boots, most often with leggings or jeans. Paired with a fun coat and tee, it’s a totally doable look, right? They’re even teaming them with dresses and skirts to take the sweetness out of the inherently feminine staples—a way cool spin we plan to try with tights when it gets really chilly. Now, the only question is what combat style you want to embrace: super chunky, pared-back and patent or embellished. Here, we culled an edit to suit every aesthetic and price point. Starting at $60, there’s no doubt a pair for you.
