Outfit Formula: Combat Boot Chic

Nods to the ‘80s and ‘90s continue as we head into 2019. As far as the ‘90s go, there are few items as representative of the era than black combat boots. Styles can be chunky or more refined. Despite the bulkiness of the boot, the fit is tailored. 

Black combat boots are an iconic casual classic with a high longevity factor. They’re always in style, a wardrobe essential for a hard-edged style persona, and a practical statement shoe. Most of them are black, although they come in shades of brown and sometimes white too.

These days, you can incorporate combat boots into just about any outfit. They add a casual and tough component to a look, which makes them a handy styling tool. Here are four renditions to get you started.

1. Architectural Darkness

The column of colour here is easy to pull together with a dark pair of blue jeans, which effectively breaks up the black. No need to tuck the top if that’s not your thing. Top and bag are simple, but the topper is dramatic. Its accentuated cocoon shape adds an architectural, arty and playful touch. Jeans are cropped to showcase the boots, and by all means wear warm black knee-highs or socks.

2. Soft and Playfully Patterned

This is my favourite of the four because it’s not hard-edged. It’s softer and I like the white boots. It’s also Trendy Classic, which is a look close to my heart. Combine a pattern-mixed top and topper in any colour palette with jeans and combat boots. If you can’t pattern mix, find soft or bright solids. Wearing the jeans cropped or rolled at the hems to showcase the boots is key. Substitute the jeans for pants if that’s more to your taste.

3. Hard-Edged Flounce

Combine a flirty, flared and flouncy midi skirt with a black top and combat boots. It’s that simple. Sweatshirts relax the vibe of the outfit. A fitted black pullover will work, and dress things up a bit. Feel free to sub the skirt and top with a prairie dress, floral flared midi, or something similar.

4. Skirted Equestrian

Combine a tapered black tube skirt with a black top and combat boots. Throw on a classic blazer in any colour palette and Bob’s your uncle. A moto jacket, bomber, denim jacket or cape can work as well. Try a shorter black pencil skirt with black hosiery if you have those on hand. Or sub the skirt with black pants.

Prince William Slams Tech Leaders’ Failure to Combat ‘Cruelty and Intolerance’

WPA Pool

Prince William has accused tech companies of hypocrisy, saying they’re falling short in tackling cyberbullying and other social problems while reveling in a “self-image grounded in their positive power.”

He told tech leaders they must “fight back against the intolerance and cruelty that has been brought to the surface by your platforms.”

In a surprisingly political speech, William called on social-media companies to “reject the false choice of profits over values” and issued a coruscating condemnation of their social impact, saying, “On every challenge they face—fake news, extremism, polarization, hate speech, trolling, mental health, privacy, and bullying—our tech leaders seem to be on the back foot.”
