Today’s combat boots hold true to the old-school grunge style, typically laced or zipped up.
Back in the day, grunge boots were worn with flannel and ripped jeans. Boots toughen up dresses and make them more appropriate for winter.
Make boots the statement piece of the outfit and pair them with tights or cutoffs. Don’t forget a pair of socks that peek out above the boots to draw attention to them.
If you’re unsure on how to wear the grunge boot, try a slimmer fit jean to rock the ‘90s look. The key to throwing together your next grunge array is to remember boots dress down an outfit.
