I think a fair share of us must be familiar with the Pinterest syndrome. The tireless nights of clicking and scrolling, the strenuous searching and tagging, all of which sums up to a vastness of internet mood boards. I’m guilty of spamming my followers with bursts of picture sharing, but I get rather excited about the diversity of sources and topics. If you’re not on Pinterest yet, I have no clue what your nights consist of, except maybe a healthy, social lifestyle, but who needs that anyway?
In today’s episode of Pinterest Styles, we’re gonna explore some trends in creating an outfit with Doc Martens. As one of my favourite shoe brands, I found grand heaps on inspiration and ideas, so the thought of this column surfaced. So, here’s five different ways to style your favourite Doc Martens.
This trend stems from the olden days, when Dr. Martens could primarily be seen on England’s skinheads. Distressed denim is a staple in an anarchy-inspired wardrobe, so combining the two should be almost compulsory at this point.
This is the month of sock experimentation. Try a different colour on each foot and be proud of it, slip on some orange cactus babies, or blue dolphin ones. They stand out, elevating your outfit into a fashion statement.
Trench Coat It
How about a long, winter coat with a sprinkle of rolled-up jeans and some Docs underneath? Does that sound like a winning combination? Because it is! The juxtaposition between lengths gives you asymmetry, which is trending this season.
Instead of going all the way, go for a skirt which stops mid-calf. You want to stay in the note of new collections, but also show off your sweet pair of Dr. Martens.
Have a throw back into childhood and invest in a comfortable look with some short dungarees. They keep making reappearances in fashion trends, so whichever season you walk them in, be confident it’s being appreciated.
Here are some lone outfits that didn’t quite fit my categories properly, but are kicking strong enough to be winners.
Hopefully some of these styles will inspire you to diversify the way you wear Doc Martens. I know they inspire me a fair deal and my bank account shall be the first to suffer. Boot collection, here I come!
