5 Ways To Wear Dr. Martens


Dr. Martens are a staple in any cool girl’s wardrobe. Whether it’s the classic 1460 or the Mary Jane, Dr. Martens have created shoes for any and all occasions. Not to mention they’re insanely comfortable and durable (I’ve been with mine for an amazing 12 years). So while we can all definitely agree that their timeless silhouette is a must-have, the question still stands, how do you style the original Doc Marten boot? Here are five ways to style a pair, but no matter how you do style them, first and foremost, do you!

Ripped Jeans

Ripped jeans are as much a staple for your wardrobe as your Dr. Martens are, so it only makes sense to pair the two. Ripped jeans come in all sorts of washes and fits, which makes them the perfect match for Dr. Martens. For an effortlessly cool look, pair with skinny jeans and a band tee or an oversized sweatshirt. Add extra flair by cuffing your jeans, throwing on a belt and a flannel, or rocking a chain. Dr. Martens open all sorts of doors stylistically speaking, so channel your inner rocker and have some fun.

A Simple Sundress

There’s something so perfect about chunky, punky combat boots and a soft, simple sundress. It’s the juxtaposition of such an outfit that seems to demonstrate the complexity of life and of us: “Yeah, I look pretty in this dress, but I also kick ass in these boots.” Something along those lines. It’s the dichotomy of life represented in fashion. Girly prints and pastel colors like yellow, pink, and baby blue make this outfit a dream come true.

Shorty Shorts Paired With A Girly Blouse

Cut-off shorts will never go out of style, and the same can be said about Dr. Martens, making this another perfect combination. Adding an ultra-feminine blouse, like one that sits off the shoulders, creates another classic silhouette. This outfit is perfect for summertime in the city. With this outfit, you’re showing off some seriously sexy assets–your legs and your shoulders–while simultaneously rocking some badass leather (vegan options are available).

A Midi Skirt

Midi skirts are a huge trend this year. Don’t believe me? Just check Pinterest. With a more interesting shape than both mini and maxi skirts, midi skirts are fast becoming a classic piece in any fashionista’s closet. There are a million different ways to style a midi skirt, and all of them look great with a pair of perfectly worn Dr. Martens. Try pairing this look with an over-sized sweater or a band tee tucked in. The possibilities are endless, and they all look good.

A Long Trench

Okay, so we’ve still got two months of summer left, but there is no denying the importance of a good trench in any wardrobe (unless of course, you live in SoCal where it’s hot ten months out of the year). If you don’t live in a desert, and you actually experience all four seasons, then a trench is a must since this type of coat is perfect for wind, rain, and the cold. Well, guess what? Dr. Martens are also perfect for all types of weather, too. Their durability cannot be overstated. Pair your boots with a classic trench and you’ll finally be able to start enjoying the colder months.
