STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: The Doc Is In

June 1st, 2015 at 2:07am

Texas weather is like a box of chocolates; even with a forecast, you never know what you’re gonna get. One day it may be cold, the next day it could be hot, either way you have to prepare for the different temperatures. The recent weather forecast has been cloudy with a chance of rainstorms but that didn’t stop this Fashionista from dressing up during these last few weeks of school.

I ran into this Fashionista on campus wearing a fall-inspired, yet spring-fitting out, a solution to the unpredictable Texas weather. Her standout piece were the matte Dr. Martens on her feet. Perfect for the unexpected showers!

Known for a chunky heel and the signature yellow stitching, Doc Martens were originally a mens work boot. They have been around since the late ’40s and now have become a sensation for all genders and ages. Need a rain boot? Dr. Martens are perfect for those rainy days. Wanna make a statement? They also come in different designs, colors, finishes; find the perfect Dr. Martens that suit your personality.

You can choose to dress it up or down, but for this Fashionista, the boots added a little “roughage” to her feminine outfit. Paired alongside a burgundy shift dress, these matte black Dr. Martens  are awesome when you’re looking to tone down an outfit you feel with any other shoes would be “too dressy” for class. Add in the leather black messenger bag, and voila! A perfect mix of girly and grunge.
