This is another recurring fashion trend that we can blame (partly) on the official Most Brilliant Person in the Whole World, Agyness Deyn, although it has to be said that Doc MArten boots were probably due a revival long before Agyness started wearing them.
I will hold my hands up and admit to owning a pair of Docs way back during the 90s grunge craze (Yes, I really am that old), but that’s a time I now look back on with horror. With jeans, Doc Martens just look ugly and overly masculine to me, and with dresses, the look becomes too 1992 for me to want to embrace it.
This patent pink pair is £60 from ASOS. Will you be buying, or will you be leaving Doc Martens to all the Agyness Deyns and Daisy Lowe’s of the world?
