Since the start, Dr. Martens has been at the forefront of footwear trends, but lately, their popularity has resurged. The best-known style of Doc Martens has to be the 1460 boot. The instantly recognizable silhouette, consisting of lace-up eyelets, a chunky sole, and a fabric label, is a wardrobe classic. Doc Martens is known for more than just its boots; its shoes and sandals are also trendy.
I purchased my first pair of Dr. Martens when I was 51. Hesitant at first because I thought I was too old to wear them, I quickly realized that Docs are for everyone. What makes them so appealing is that you make them what you want; you wear them as you see fit and make them your own. The shoes are edgy and cute at the same time, perfect for any age. My first pair was the 2976 Yellow Stich Smooth Leather Chelsea Boot in white, which inspired this blog.
Incorporating these iconic shoes into your wardrobe is relatively easy with so many options. I’ve got you covered if you’re not used to wearing chunky-soled shoes or boots.
Okay, hear me out before you say no to platform combat boots. First, combat boots are incredibly versatile and give an edge to any look. Second, Dr. Martens Jadon boot is comfortable and, with its 1.75-inch platform, provides some height without making walking awkward or uncomfortable. And like all Dr. Martens, they are built to last a lifetime
I feel confident, edgy, and stylish when I wear these boots. I wear them with jeans and dresses and have yet to find an outfit that they don’t complement.
The traditional Chelsea boot but brought to life by the Dr. Martens style. These boots offer a clean style that works for any occasion. I love the elastic on the side for easy on and off. White boots speak for themselves; they make your outfit fun, interesting and bold.
These boots make me feel stylish and hip and a little sassy! As with the combat boots, I wear these white boots with almost anything, from jeans to a maxi dress.
These Maryjanes remind me of my catholic school days; plaid skirt, ankle socks, and Mary Janes, only bolder. They add a classy edge to any pair of jeans or skirt.
I feel happy wearing these shoes; they add a little pep to my step.
The oxford and the sandal are two classics that are great to have on hand when going for a particular look or when you want to spice up a more traditional outfit. The lace-ups are a great alternative to your favorite sneaker, add a cute pair of socks, and you’re all set. The sandals are the perfect summer accessory; they go with shorts and all your favorite summer dresses. The platform is an added touch that takes your outfit to the next level.
The fashion world is improving at acknowledging that women deserve to look and feel good regardless of age. Don’t let your age hold you back when redefining your style. You deserve to feel beautiful and confident in your skin. When in doubt, just #wearthedamboots
