The item: The combat boot dominates this season

The best combat boots to add to your autumn/winter wardrobe for stylish and versatile looks.
It’s autumn, which means we can finally wear our combat boots to death! If you don’t yet have a pair, or you're on the lookout for another style, then you're in the right place. Consider them the must-have boots for autumn/winter 2019.

Why we want them

Instagram-worthy and influencer-approved, the combat boot is the shoe to own this season. Combat boots were a particular favourite in the '90s and are back with a vengeance. So much so that the Hadid sisters (Bella in particular), Kaia Gerber and Hailey Bieber have been spotted wearing them like a second skin in between runway shows. And now we want them too!

How to wear them

The trick to wearing them correctly is in the styling. Combat boots are versatile enough to wear with your favourite pair of mom jeans or with a dress, and they look great with a cute pair of socks peeking out the top. Roll your jeans up to ankle height to show off your boots, or wear them with dresses and skirts that are ankle height or shorter for a feminine look with some attitude. Avoid floor-sweeping lengths that hide your boots and don't do any justice to the look. The combat-hiker hybrid is admired for its badass, don't-mess-around look, so pairing it with a feminine summer dress will add some edge; go for flowing fabrics in pretty floral prints for the perfect balance. Although the boot has punk/grunge undertones, designers have started experimenting with the design and silhouette of the shoe to make it more mainstream. From heels, platforms and buckles to lace-ups, slip-ons and bejewelled styles, the combat boot is here to serve us all.
