Runways and celebrities are probably the first ones to lead fashion trends. One such trend emerged with combat boots, that has now become a wardrobe staple for almost every fashionista out there.
Originally designed for military men, combat boots came into mainstream fashion around the 60s and 70s, thanks to Dr. Martens boots that became a fashion choice for British punk styles. Combat boots kept coming back decades after decades until they were introduced to the runway fashion with the famously infamous Perry Ellis spring ‘93 show. The collection was called ghastly, coming from the grunge fashion scene. Although this show cost Marc Jacobs his job, it was the start of the world-renowned ‘Marc Jacobs’ label, as he later went on to recreate this collection for his eponymous label.
Coming back to the present, celebrities and fashionistas have fallen head-over-heels in love with different combat boot styles. Oftentimes, celebrities are seen flaunting bold looks with chic combat boots. Through this blog, let us go through a few celebrities and their favorite combat boot styles, along with different versions of the same shoe.
Celebrities and The Punk Style Combat Boots They Love
Celebrities have always had their favorite styles from platform shoes and mini handbags to puffer jackets and combat boots. All of us are aware of Ariana Grande and Olivia Rodrigo’s love for platform heels. Combat boots, Dr. Martens, in particular, have their own fan base with Hailer Bieber, Bella Hadid, and Dua Lipa often being spotted in them. Let us check out a few celebrities happily flaunting their punk love with the ever-bold and stylish combat boots.
- Kendall Jenner.
Kendall Jenner sure loves her punk-style looks. She is time ‘n’ again spotted in her favorite combat boots. As seen in New York City a few days back, she styled one of her chic looks in black lace-up combat boots with a black sweater by TOTÊME and black flared jeans. She accessorized the look with sunglasses and hair tied back with a simple clutch. She completed the look with a black shoulder bag.
In the image below, Kendall Jenner can be seen styling her Doc Martens with slimming black pants, a graphic tee, and an oversized flannel shirt. She completed the look with a Hermès Birkin bag. She kept her glam to the bare minimum, flaunting her dewy skin. We love how she managed to balance out the broad design of the boots with the straight slim pants. This is one of the most casual looks anyone can go for.
