How to wear the Dr Martens (with style)
It would be the charm of the 90s, it would be the rain of the last few weeks … Well, I felt the need to buy a pair of Dr. Martens!
If you think they are not for you, give me a chance: in this article I will explain how to wear Dr Martens with style. With any style.
The Dr Martens are a fashion accessory, and so you can match them with bags and trendy hats. Perhaps with a short fur or a coat with three-quarter sleeves.
Among the must-have of the ’90s, the Dr Martens are perfect for a shabby (fake) look. Some examples? Ripped jeans or leather mini skirt, sweater or unbuttoned shirt, short top and lots of studs.
It seems incredible, but the Dr Martens are also perfect for a work outfit! If your work environment is not too formal, the low version of the Dr Martens will surely be more aggressive than ballerinas and moccasins.
They are trendy, but they are above all practical and comfortable: perfect for a more casual style. With the right precautions, I would also say they’re casual chic. Just take a look at the outfits of celebrities down below …
We can certainly say that the Dr. Martens are one the main accessories of the androgynous style. If you love this style too, do not miss my wall Androgynous Style on Pinterest.
On the other side, here is how to wear the Dr Martens with ultra feminine clothes. Try them on very short lengths and floral patterns (micro floral is better). To complete the look, long and natural hair is the perfect choice.
When talking about femininity, the step from romantic to sexy is short. The clothes will be shorter and wraparound, the accessories will be in leather or studded. It’s also nice to match them with a jacket or a leather jacket.
WITH A LONG SKIRT
If pairing them with pants seems obvious, here is how to wear the Dr Martens with the long skirt: just wear them without tights, with a cardigan or a leather jacket, but also with a short top (maybe when it’s less cold, okay? ).
WITH A SHORT SKIRT
And here is how to wear the Dr Martens with a short skirt: for the winter season, wear them with tights. Above you can combine a t-shirt or a shirt, but also a cardigan or a thin wool sweater.
HOW TO WEAR THE DR MARTENS WITH TIGHTS?
With the low version and pants, we can use short socks, even contrasting. Instead, if you wear the boots with short skirts, have fun with tights: classic, colored or patterned.

WHICH COLOR FOR THE DR MARTENS?
There are many versions: colorful, patterned, with the studs, in leather, polished and so on and so forth … If you are collectors, have fun as well! If this is your first purchase, choose them in black or burgundy.
HOW TO TIE THE DR MARTENS?
To avoid the punk effect, I would avoid the tight-lacing up to the last hole. Much prettier (and infinitely more comfortable) the soft lacing, leaving the last two holes at the top loose.
