Give your Doc MARTENS a new spin

For us, 90′s-high-school-generation aka 30 + now, wearing Doc Martens was a thing – then. What happens when one wants it to be the thing – now, and many do, but with the avoiding of looking as high-school-smells-like-a-teen-spirts-kidz (of course) or to be the the part of the punk embodiment trend now days?! (The MET Gala punk theme would suffice for this year).

Here is how to look styled, age-appropriate and not feel like hurrying to Nirvana concert:

You got it?! Tailored, cut, refined, keep it mono-styled when wearing with pants, all-black or other dark tones – if you are looking for sophistication. Also, those straight-cut mid-length skirt – color-or dark (post below) would do the trick – wear it with some fine chunky knit.

My fave of all Dr. Martens are those on the last pic that my bestie Ana bought yesterday. Really looks great, Ana! : )

I’m not at all into red or red dresses in particular but this shot is amazing.
