If you didn’t know, I am a former punk kid. That being said, I spent a lot of time wearing Dr. Martens way before Instagram made them cool again. One thing I will say is that old habits die hard, and I’m back on the trend. Here are 6 affordable Dr. Marten dupes that won’t break the bank!
Trendy or Classic?
Honestly, this is a pretty valid question at the moment! It seems like all of your favorite IT girls are wearing them all over Instagram, but they lean on the masculine side quite a bit. Dr. Martens come in a variety of leather options from hot pink to vegan, to classic leather.
One not so great aspect of this trend is that they are on the higher end of what I personally like to spend on shoes. I recently talked about how much I love my pair of the 8-eye Iconic Boots that I picked up. It got me thinking about finding affordable Dr. Martens dupes, especially since not everyone is sure if they actually like the trend!
How to style them!
With Dr. Martens, I think there are quite a few ways that they can be styled. Since they lean more masculine, it is easy to pair them with a great pair of jeans, a leather jacket, a band tee, and a pair of killer sunglasses. Not only is it something that we all have in our closet, but it is simple and chic too!
Another cute way to style them is by playing off the masculinity of the shoe. I think it is so cute when they are paired with an ultra-feminine skirt or dress. It shows off both pieces, and is a great way to show off your own personal style! Here are a few of my favorite Dr. Martens dupes!
