The 1995 film Empire Records featuring Liv Tyler as Corey sparks my memory when the kilt comes to mind. Her long lanky legs strutting below that effortlessly cool kilt paired with a cropped sweater and combat boots made the perfect outfit.

The editorial “Super Normal Super Model’s“ shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggot, styled by Edward Enninful features Lara Stone, Kate Moss,Daria Werbowy (to name a few) sporting the quintessentially cool kilt and combat boot outfit. Almost 10 years later the kilt and combat boots still remain as fashion staples.

You can check out my other post on styling kilts from last year–it’s still pretty relevant. In the mean time I have put together 2 different kilts in 2 different outfits (at good prices…).
