Is it acceptable for a woman over 40 to wear the combat boots which are popular again?
If so, what would be the proper way to wear them? I remember wearing them in the 90′s and how comfortable they were, but I have a feeling that these boots aren’t worn in the same manner this time around. Please advise. Thanks! Trudy
Here’s a great example of an old trend that comes around and makes you wonder if you should try it again. I’m afraid there is no short “yes” or “no” answer to this.
Combat boots work for some mature women. They look hip and cool wearing them because they have ”the whole look.” In other words they have paired combat boots with something feminine like the outfit above.
If you try to wear combat boots with an army fatigue look or with all black with leather, you a going to look like you are wearing a military or old rocker costume. It’s the contrast of the feminine and the masculine that you need to pull off this look.
It’s not a look I will be investing in. My taste leans more to a boot that looks sleek, clean and simple. There are plenty of comfortable boots that are in style other than this trendy look. I have actually tried on a few pairs (some more radical than others) and felt that they would just not fit into most of my wardrobe.
None-the-less, if it works for you, go for it. Dressing after 40, or at any age is all about personal expression and being authentic.
Would you wear this look? Comment below and let me know your feelings!!
