Doc Martens has been the first version of her classic worker-style boot for almost 60 years. Their shoes are high quality, sturdy, durable, versatile and comfortable, so it’s no wonder they’ve passed the test of time so long. Doc Martens’ claim to fame is the trendy worker boot, but the shoe brand has evolved over the last fifty years and now sells a variety of other boot styles for men and women.

As timelessly trendy as these boots are, the shoes have also become synonymous with a nervous, rebellious art nouveau style. Some people even consider them “easy” because they have been popular for so long. These connotations keep many women from rocking Docs if they value their own unique style and do not want to look like sixteen again. Doc Martens, however, are very versatile shoes and they do not have to be a symbol of teenage rebellion. There are many ways to style your documents to create looks that will express your own sense of style no matter what it is.
1. Wear tights
Tights and Docs are a classic combination. Simple black tights effortlessly balance the bulkiness of these boots, making them uncomfortable and disproportionate when worn alone. Wearing tights under your docs adds to the range of possible outfit options you can wear with these shoes.
Combine your combination of tights and Docs with high waisted cut-off shorts and a simple T-shirt for a trendy look. Or wear a short skirt and a short top to create a delicate look. Add a slim cardigan for a sleek finish. If you want to add a touch of flair to your look, leave the black standard tights with a mesh fishnet or patterned lace or fishnet tights instead.
2. Embrace the Edge
If you can not beat them, join them. Capture the classic, fashionable style of Doc Martens, whose look is reminiscent of the youthful rebel style, but preserves a classic finish without stupid or immature appearance. The key to these looks is to turn the classic grunge style of the ’90s into more modern, composite outfits.
Distressed jeans are a must if you want to add extra looks to your docs. The texture of ripped jeans gives your outfit more depth and balances the bulkiness of your boots. To add shine to your look, combine dark, destroyed jeans with a loose, graphic T-shirt and an oversized denim jacket. Or opt for a refined, refined finish with a slightly jammed high-waisted black jeans, a figure-hugging V-neck and a shortened leather jacket. Wear a black belt around the waist to accentuate your figure and give your look more dimension.
3. Feminize Them
Classic Doc Marten boots are gender neutral. The sold for men and women worker style is almost identical. Plus, Docs’ sturdy construction makes these boots more masculine than the shoes you used to wear.
If you wear more feminine outfits, you do not have to do without Docs. You can easily combine these androgynous boots with the other pieces that integrate into your look. Accessories contribute a lot to bring feminine flair in your outfit. Wear a light, patterned fashion scarf or a classic, stylish Panama hat. Complete your look with delicate jewelry and a filigree clutch or a small shoulder bag.
4. Branch Out
If you’re not a fan of the rugged worker boot-style, you’ll have to completely copy Doc Martens. The shoe brand also sells a variety of other boots that may more suit your personal style. Plus, these alternative Docs make it easier to create looks than the classic worker boots of the brand.
A pair of dull black ankle boots by Doc Martnes with black jeans and leggings for a trendy, taut finish. Or try one of the brand’s unique heel styles with a dress or a combination of skinny jeans and blouse for a feminine look with a lightweight silhouette. If you like the worker boot style but are looking for something more unique than classic matte black, remember that this is a type of docs available in many different colors and patterns that you can explore.
5. Dress Up
You can create less random looks by putting your look together Docs with a dress for a neat and carefree finish. Always wear your docs only with short or medium length dresses. Bottom hem dresses tend to create a crowded, unbalanced look.
On colder days you can combine your boots with a short, loose-fitting dress, tights and a long cardigan for a taut finish. In warm weather, you can hollow out the tights and create a trendy, fashionable boho look with a midi dress and an oversized denim jacket.
6. Cuff or harvest
If you’re wearing Docs with long, tight-fitting hips and a well-balanced, streamlined, not overcrowded look, it can be difficult.
If you combine your boots with cuffs or tailored bottoms can solve this problem. Tie the underside of straight-leg jeans to just above the top of your docs. This can help to balance the wide ankles of the boots. Or choose a pair of jeans that are already cropped an inch or two above the boots to give your fashionable shoes a much stronger look.
7. Get Cozy
Doc Martens is durable and weatherproof. Therefore, they are the ideal shoes for a variety of cozy winter outfits that keep you warm and comfortable stylish.
Put your boots over a pair of fashion boots socks and pair them with leggings or skinny jeans. Add a figure-hugging pullover for a sweet and classic winter look. Or create a bold, eye-catching outfit with the unexpected combination of tights, a short skirt and an oversized slouchy sweater.
The possibilities for outfits that you can create with Doc Martens are endless. With the right style guidelines, you can effortlessly put together trendy looks that combine the classic style of Doc Martens boots with a personal, unique flair that suits you.
