The first and probab;y easiest way to style combat boots is with a pair of black jeans. Black jeans are something every woman should have in her closet. Not only are they super versatile when it comes to color combinations, but they are also perfect for any type of weather. So, if you want to pair your combat boots with black jeans, the best way to do it is with the pants tucked into the boots. Apart from that, the rest of the outfit is entirely up to you. For a more business look, add a polo blouse and a nice blazer. For a more casual look, add either a hoodie or graphic t-shirt and top it with a leather jacket. And, finally, for a more modern, Instagram worthy look, pair your high waisted black jeans with a crop top or a bralette and finish off the outfit with a blazer or, once again, a leather jacket.

The good thing about combat boots is that they can be styled with both long and short dresses. When it comes to styling them with long dresses, the important thing is to keep the length of the dress above the ankles. In general, the rule is to wear a free flowing skirt, which can partially cover the boots, but not fully. Naturally, a more casual dress looks best. However, you have a lot of options when it comes to colors and prints. For a darker shade, choose black boots, while for a more light colored dress, you can always choose white boots, which are also very trendy and popular. When it comes to short dresses, needless to say that they look absolutely gorgeous with combat boots. Both types can be worn with a leather jacket, coat or a blazer on top.

Jeans and combat boots outfit ideas

When it comes to jeans, the same rules apply as for the black jeans. Of course the type of pant leg matters a lot. For a wider fit, you can roll up the jeans so that they go just above the boots. For skinny jeans, you can either tuck them into the boots or buy ones, which go just above the boots. When it comes to pairings for your outfit, the possibilities are endless. Once again, for more casual looks, any type of hoodie, sweatshirt, t-shirt or blouse is fully acceptable. While, on the other hand, for a more polished look, you might need a shirt or a polo, topped with a nice blazer or coat. Either way, the combination of jeans and combat boots is one for the ages and it seems like it will never go out of style.
