Forget Black Booties, Amal Clooney and J.Lo Are Wearing This Weather-Resistant Boot Trend Instead

Winter is a bad time for everyone and everything, but it’s especially brutal on your wardrobe. Love miniskirts? You’re out of luck. Hate wearing puffer jackets that make you look like a marshmallow? Too bad. Worried about ruining your boots at the site of even a single snowflake or tiny raindrop? You should be.

Worst of all, boots are expensive. Unfortunately, we have no choice but to wear them once we have to say goodbye to our open-toed sandals. Boots are also, of course, incredible, and from the resurgence of the knee-high boot trend to the newfound popularity of snakeskin everything, they’ve never been more fun to style. The combination of all these things makes boots especially precious, and it’s impossible to wear them out in a snowstorm or rainfall without causing irreparable damage. And there is nothing more tragic than suede Stuart Weitzman boots getting soggy or leather fading on a pair of studded Maryam Nassir Zadeh knee highs.

Fortunately, sometimes fashion trends are actually practical and right now, weather-resistant combat boots are everywhere. Considering combat boots were originally worn by soldiers during actual combat, it should go without saying that being durable is what they’re known for. And now, thanks to designers like Prada, Chloé, and The Row, combat boots are fashionable too. You don’t have to spend hundreds to get in on the trend though. Even though Cyber Monday is over, Nordstrom still has some great combat boot options on sale right now. So many good designer pairs are especially discounted and affordable brands are marked down even more than ever before.

In the past couple months alone, every celebrity imaginable has worn a pair of combat boots. You’d be hard-pressed to find a recent Bella Hadid outfit that doesn’t feature a classic Dr. Marten platform combat boot. Jennifer Lawrence paired hers with an otherwise cozy camel coat and oversized sweater look. J.Lo has been wearing combat boots since she was just Jenny from the Block. Even Amal Clooney owns a pair or two. And winter doesn’t look like it’s too bad of a time for them, does it? Combat boots will do that.
