Usually when it comes to awards season, trends are set in colours (pink and red), style trends (open back gowns) or if you’re Renee Zellweger; everything off the shoulder.
One unexpected trend for awards season 2021 is combat boots with dresses.
This mini trend started with Rosamund Pike at the start of awards season for the Golden Globe Awards where she broke her own style rules wearing a Molly Goddard tiered tulle dress with Alexander McQueen combat boots.
For the SAG Awards this trend continued via awards season new style star Emma Corrin, and Cynthia Erivo who has become one of the most consistent on the virtual red carpet circuit this season.
Jennifer Lopez, who is never one to skip a trend, posted this image on her Instagram on the set of her latest film ‘Shot Gun Wedding’.
What is the best way to pull off this look?
It has been said that the dress should be a midi that ends approximately two to three inches above the top of your boots.
This is because showing off a sliver of skin between the two will add a few inches of height while offering a flattering peek at your legs, plus it will help balance out the clunky nature of lug-soled boots, which is sometimes needed if you’re rocking them with a floaty, feminine frock.
