WHAT TO WEAR WITH DOC MARTENS: OUTFITS WITH DOC MARTENS
Wear doc martens with leggings & Jeggings
Jeggings and leggings are a must have in every ladies wardrobe. They are versatile and can be worn with many cloths for a stylish and trendy outfit. In this case, ladies can wear Jeggings with doc martens. Jeggings are leggings of skinny jeans which can be worn for casual outfits independently. Pair your Jeggings with a nice matching top. The outfit will look great when you tuck-in the Jeggings into the boots.
For leggings, you can’t wear the independently, you have to wear them with clothes that reaches or cover up your hips. You can wear your leggings underneath dresses, skirts, or shorts. Black leggings will be the best choice as they will match with most clothes paired with them. However, you can try other colors such as brown or animal printed leggings as long as they match with the trend and don’t clash the trend to make you look old-fashioned.
Opt for black or brown doc martens (dr marten’s boots) to wear with this attire to create your own personalized unique outfit in doc martens.
Wear doc martens with shorts
Shorts add style to your casual outfit. They are mainly worn for casual occasions on weekends and in the evening after work. You can rock a sexy and chic outfit in shorts with doc martens. Khaki shorts or denim shorts will be the best choice to wear with dr martens boots.
Choose a nice pair of denim shorts and pair it with a nice floral top or any matching top preferably in neutral colors like white, cream or grey. Wear black or brown socks with this outfit as they will make the attire look fashionable. Personally I would go for brown doc martens; however, black doc martens can as well work.
Alternatively, try wearing shorts with leggings underneath. This will help you cover up the curvy areas in your thighs. For shorts which will show or expose your goods to peep from underneath, style them by wearing leggings underneath. Tuck-in the leggings into your dr martens boots to look neat and smart.
Finish off with a medium size handbag which will complement the whole attire. Ladies can dress like this when going out in the evening for an evening walk or on weekends for shopping to just a walk around town.
Wear doc martens with skinny jeans
Skinny jeans are one of the favorite bottom wears for ladies especially with boots. Ladies can wear dr martens boots with skinny jeans. Navy skinny jeans or black skinny jeans will look great with doc martens when paired with tops of neutral colors such as white, grey or cream. Choose a nice pair of old navy skinny jean and pair it with a grey top. Tuck in the top to look smart or just leave it hangout for an easy but cute casual outfit.
Brown doc martens will be the best color to team with this attire. Depending on the look you want to create, throw on a jacket to help you stay warm at the same time adding style to the getup.
In case you have a cream or whitish skinny jean, try wearing it with a cream or white top. Pair the attire with brown combat boots and brownish sunnies and you will be good to go.
Wear doc martens with khaki pants:
Khaki pants are another form of comfortable casual wear just like skinny jeans. When you have your khaki pants, you can dress them up with a trimmed floral top and dress them down with brown dr martens boots. Throw on a vest jacket to make the getup look fashionable and trendy. Tuck-in the khaki pants into your doc martens to make the attire look attractive and neat. A small size handbag or shoulder bag with dark sunnies will add style to the attire making it look more attractive and eye-catching.
Ladies can dress like this when going for shopping in the evening or on weekends.
Wear doc martens with short dresses
Ladies look great and cute in doc martens when paired with short dresses. You can wear your short dress which is slightly above your knees to rock a chic, sexy, and eye-catching outfit.
You can wear dresses in neutral colors, primary colors or patterns and prints with dr martens boots. Try matching the color of your doc martens boots with the color and patterns of the dress.
You can wear a black dress with black doc martens boots. The boots will complement the whole attire. The helm of the dress should about an inch or two above the knee as too short dresses might expose your “good” when you bend or sit. Pair the attire with a nice black leather handbag which will add style to the getup and make you look fashionable. Wear black sock and fish off the attire with black bracelets and you will be good to go.
Alternatively, you can try dresses in patterns such as polka dot or floral patterns. Polka dot and floral patterns look great with black boots or shoes. Choose a nice polka dot or floral dress and wear it with black doc martens. Add more style to the outfit by pairing it with a small size black, Polk dot or floral shoulder bag. Accessorize with a few armlets and finish off with dark sunnies and you will be good to go.
Alternative option 1: You can as well try dresses in other colors and prints. They will also look cute on you when you match them with the trend. Black or brown doc martens will be the best colors to wear with any other color or prints to a void color clash as colorful boots can easily clash the trend.
Try wearing leggings underneath the dress:
When you not comfortable with the length of your dress (coz it’s too short that it will expose your “goods”), wear black or brownish leggings underneath. Personally, I would recommend black leggings as they will match with most of the dresses for a complete, sexy and stylish outfit. Tuck-in the leggings into your dr martens boots to look smart, neat and fashionable. Try personalizing the attire by throwing on a matching jacket or cardigan and a hat or beanie which will complement and flatter the whole getup.
Wear doc martens with skirts
Skirts which are slightly above the knee look great when paired with boots. In this case, you will wear your favorite skirt in dull or neutral color and floral or polka dot prints with doc martens. With polka dot or floral short skirts, pair them with neutral color tops such as white, cream, grey or black. In the picture below, Jessica Alba show us how you can wear and style doc martens with skirts to look stunning and eye-catching.
She wore a floral short skirt and paired it with a black tank. Tuck in the tank to look smart. Pair the attire with brown dr martens boots which will complement the patterns in the skirt. Complement the whole attire with a black purse or clutch bag and finish off with dark sunnies and you will be good to go and rock an evening outfit in dr martens boots.
Alternatively, you can wear a polka dot short skirt. Pair the skirt with a white top such as a cami or tank. Tuck in the top to look smart, organized and fashionable. To look more attractive, you can throw on a black blazer or jacket that will complement the whole attire. Wear black doc martens to complement and match with the patterns in the polka dot skirt.
In case you’re not comfortable with wearing the skirt alone, you can wear black legging underneath it. This will add style of the attire at the same time making you feel comfortable. Accessorize with a black small size handbag or shoulder bag and a few bracelets which will get you set for your casual happenings.
This is one of my favorite outfits with doc martens especially on weekends when going for shopping or when going to the cafe to have a drink with pals.

First, put one a thin pair of socks to protect your toes and then add a thicker pair of socks over the thin one. This will cause your doc martens to widen up a bit in the sides so that they comfortably fit you with ease.

When it’s your first time to wear doc martens or when they are new, you need to first try them on when at home before going out in them. This will help your feet get used and fit comfortably. Try them on for about 60 minutes to 100 minutes and after which you can remove them to avoid hurting your feet. Do it for about a week or two and increase the breaking time in them each day that passes.
Try the outdoor:
After the indoor practice to break in doc martens, you can now try walking in them for a small distance outside your home. You can wear them when going for shopping or buying things from nearby shops. Increase the distance when you realize that they aren’t hurting your feet. However, for a very long walk, I would recommend or advise you to carry another pair of comfortable shoes just in case you start feeling pain or your feet seem to be uncomfortable.
Repeat the breaking till when you feel comfortable in your doc martens for a complete day wear.
