Gloriously comfortable and equipped with the most splendid sheen (hot pink patent, ooh la la!), they’re possibly the shoe equivalent of an incredible dream and with every spare moment I get, I’m finding myself sneaking off to my wardrobe to gaze at them adoringly!
The only hiccup in our new companionship? They’re not the most subtle choice of footwear. And yes, while their screamingly bright hue is ABSOLUTELY one of the things that drew me to them in the first place, deciding which outfits to pair them with so that the look is complimentary, as opposed to plain old ugly, can be challenging. Who would have guessed that pulling off an excellent pair of shoes with aplomb would involve more than the simple step of well, just putting them on?! I’m not sure, but if you’re struggling to find the perfect clothing suitor for your Dr. Martens, why not look to the following ensembles for pure style inspiration?
Agyness Deyn loves her Dr. Martens, and by the looks of things, they love her too! Just look at the way she’s masterfully coupled them with a brilliant bowler hat, leather jacket, candy-coloured fluffy sweater and leggings! Spectacular!
Almost-mid-calf-length booties teamed with an oversized cardigan and a classic mini-skirt? If Barney Gumble from The Simpsons were here, he’d surely scream, “I like it!”
Worn over the top of skinny jeans (did you hear that?! Worn over the TOP of skinny jeans! What little fashion mavericks these boots are!), they instantly create a look that exudes effortless, casual glamour. (And look! It’s Agyness Deyn again!)
But hey, casual doesn’t necessarily float everyone’s boat, so why wear them with a fabulously ethereal frock to your next outing instead?! I adore this look so very much, and it definitely beats walking the streets of the city barefoot at 3am and carting around your heels in your hand!
When it comes to Dr. Martens, are you a fan, or are you secretly wishing that they’d scamper back to the 80’s already?!
