Style Advice of the Week

Back in the ’90s, everyone who was considered a rebellious teenager owned a pair of Dr. Martens. I remember watching all those ’90s sitcoms such as Saved by the Bell, My So Called Life and Boy Meets World and whenever there was a character who gave off any punk vibes, Dr. Martens were their go-to kicks. For this reason alone, I used to think I could never pull them off because I could never take the plunge into the grunge.

In today’s world however, Dr. Martens have been making it into mainstream fashion as a must-have item that is too cool for school. Seen in a variety of colors and worn in many different styles, these boots that were once labeled unorthodox are now considered something that every Fashionista wants and needs.

I needed some sort of reassurance that the rumors about these boots making a powerful comeback were true, and this Fashionista in her shiny black Dr. Martens is clear proof. The glossy exterior gives a modern and unique twist to the regular leather combat boot look, and let’s not forget about the awesome signature thick heels. Especially with the melting snow that is all over campus, this Fashionista will have no wet feet to rain on her parade while wearing these comfy kicks.

She easily pairs it with an earthy-toned tunic sweater and black leggings to pull off an effortlessly cool ensemble that can be worn around campus or hanging out with friends. Aside from pairing the boots with leggings, try a pair of Docs with a printed skirt and cropped sweater for a more flirty street style outfit rocked by icons such as Whitney Port and Dakota Fanning. Trust me, this is the kind of Doc that will cure you of any fashion woes.
