Quick and Easy Methods to Blouse Boots

There are few different methods for knowing how to blouse pants and boots. Although, I will give you four easy and quick ways to get through the process, and it will be indeed easy.

Bloused boots by using Elastic bands

One of the most used methods that people use is by buying an Elastic band. This way is super cheap and gives you easy and guaranteed safety from insects, derbies, dust, and cold.

  • Elastic band
  • Thick socks (above ankle level)
  • Boots
  • Military or similar pants

Make sure your socks do not ankle length as you need them to be higher than the length of your boot, don’t wear short socks at all, but don’t wear socks that are till the knees. Once you got all these things, you will need to follow these steps to blouse boots:

  • Wear your pants, socks, and boots, and then up your pants above the level of socks.
  • Take the elastic band and get it right where your boots end above your socks.
  • Once you get done doing that, get your pants down and straighten them out.
  • Take the below part of your pants and start to slide and fold them in your elastic band.

If you want them to get a tight military blouse, fold all the extra cloth till it’s the level of your boots. However, if you want to leave a little balloon-style fashion, fold the pants but leave some extra cloth to have that balloon style going on for you.

However, going hiking, in the military, or trekking doesn’t go for fashion. It’s safety and protection that matters, so don’t take the balloon bloused boots; instead of that, go the proper way and close it tightly.

Bloused boots by using an elastic strap

We learned how to blouse boots using elastic bands; now it’s time for an elastic strap. It’s the same procedure, but it is different, and you can do it two ways. What will you need for this method? Well, here are the things you will need:

  • Thick socks
  • Boots
  • Elastic bands
  • Military or similar pants

As I explained earlier in the previous step, the socks need to be thick and above the ankle level. Thick socks are necessary, or the bands and straps can even cut down your blood circulation after staying on thin socks for a while. So now let’s see the first method:

  • Wear your socks, pants, and boots before getting started.
  • Take your elastic band and tie it right where the boots end above your socks.
  • Then straighten up your pants and let them hang.
  • Once it gets done, take the bottom of your pants and start folding and tucking it inside the elastic bands.
  • Make sure it gets nicely tucked inside your pants, or you won’t be safe from the derbies, insects, and cold winds.

Then there is a second way to do almost the same things, but this is more traditional and gives you better-looking blouse boots. So let’s see how to do it:

  • Wear your socks, pants, and boots before getting started.
  • Drop your pants down, and then hold the inside of the bottom of your pants and fold them around your leg.
  • Make sure it’s nice and tight, then take the elastic straps and place them on the inside of your pants.
  • Make sure the strap is above the socks and exactly where the shoe ends.
  • Then pull your pants up, and you will see that the strap holds the pants from inside, and you won’t even see the strap or the folded areas as they will be inside.

This method of blouse boots is the good and proper way to do it with the elastic strap.

  • Boots
