No, it does look hideous.

Are you in your mid twenties? Do you remember that people are supposed to wear fat trainers with them? I do!

Hmmm.... I would say that it wouldn't be a good combination.

But then, I'm not so keen on the stilleto type boots with the conbat type trousers bagged over the top....

I have some cropped combats that I wear with very flat little trainers for the school walk. My dh HATES them

Mud Sat 11-Jun-05 19:15:35

hermykne - are you joking or serious? I really don't follow fashion so it could go either way

hermykne Sat 11-Jun-05 19:15:43

anchovies Sat 11-Jun-05 19:17:37

Girls aloud wear them (so I dont...!)

Mud Sat 11-Jun-05 19:18:39

yes I will admit I am really not with it - I really don't want to be with it - I am happy being comfortable - but really serious or not???? I am dying to know

flamesparrow Sat 11-Jun-05 19:19:59

I'm not with it either...

I am a very old and out of fashion 24 year old!

Good to see you feel so strongly about that!

dinny Sat 11-Jun-05 19:30:53

dunno what I did there, feel DESPERATELY strongly about it

I nearly bought a pair of combats off ASOS the other day.

On the description it said something along the lines of "Be like Victoria Beckham and match these gorgeous combats with a pair of stillettos"

I did think about doing it but it is sooo 3 seasons ago.
Besides Kylie did it before VB.

i wore the look the summer before last, so it is past it!
wearing my Gstar combat shorts with flip flops today and then i put on bronze mules to go out !

not label dropping before s.o says shut up hermykne

Combats should ONLY be worn with flat shoes.

Everything else is tacksville.

I think they look great with the new sparkly indian flat type shoes. I haven't found a comfortable pair yet
