{ The Combat Boot Comeback }

With Fall in full swing, it’s time to take a look into our closets and do a little seasonal revamp. While some pieces are tried and true staples (denim, a good tee, and a schoolboy blazer a la “The Way She Wears It”) it’s good to invest in a new seasonal staple: the combat boot.

Now I know what you’re thinking...combat boots? But I promise you, these six selections will have you skipping your daily Starbucks to save for the perfect pair. Paired with a lace slip dress and a chunky sweater, the most unexpected combination will surely turn heads.

Here are my six favorite combat boots this season:

{ Chloé Leather Combat Boots }

1) A take on the classic combat boots, Chloé wins again. The brass buckles add a rustic touch as well as allow the boot to hug closely to the calf. Hitting at the perfect height for the season (see “The New Bootie Height You’ll Need For Fall”) these traditional yet polished combat booties are a must. Especially great for those a little hesitant on embracing the style.

{ Casadei City Rock Ankle Boots }

2) Embrace your inner Rock n’ Roll and pick the Casadei City Rock Ankle Boots. The silver chain link detailing and sleek wrap around leather laces adds a distinct sense of cool only Rock n’ Roll girls have. Seriously edgy.

{ Lanvin Embellished Tweed Biker Boots }

3) Okay, these Lanvin Embellished Tweed Biker Boots are really pushing the limitations of  “the combat boot”. The tweed, the snakeskin, the gold zipper and chain embellishment. So. good. And so unexpected. The feminine-masculine mix of textures is pure perfection.

{ ALLSAINTS Women’s Donita Leather Lace Up Combat Boots in Oxblood Red }

4) Combat Boots: Oxblood Edition. As you know, the DS team is crazy about oxblood this season ( see here and here ) so these ALLSAINTS Lace Up Combat Boots were a no-brainer. A traditional style with an untraditional color, these will look amazing with a midi-length dress and a little lace peeking from above these ALLSAINTS boots. P.S. for those unsure of testing a new color, they also come in black and are just as cool.

{ Casadei X Lena Perminova Flat Biker Boot }

5) These boots by Casadei are the best combination of biker meets combat. The shape of the buckle in addition to the flat leather laces adds a unique element we’ve yet to see (and believe me, we’ve seen a lot). This boot is perfect for those looking for a classic style with an edgy attitude, and one-of-a-kind detail.

{ Tabitha Simmons Alex Buckled Suede Boots }

6) This boot was so good, we just had to show you a top view to get the full effect. This Tabitha Simmons Alex Buckled Suede Boot may just be our favorite of the bunch. The pointed toe in combination with the front zipper and buckles make us ever regret thinking combat boots couldn’t be stylish and cool. The use of hardware only, no laces, adds a level of sleek sophistication. We simply can’t resist.
