Whats up Doc?

Ever since I saw Doc's on Lauren & Whitney in a spread of Teen Vogue I've been thinking about how the look just wouldn't translate in the real world. (I mean combat boots are soo nineties! I can't help but think of grunge bands and Skye from Clueless pre-makeover.) Then, when I was browsing through Elle's Street Style section I noticed a whole lot of stylish New Yorkers sporting their own combat boots. I'm not entirely sure what I think about this look.. I don't know if its been long enough that these boots are fashionable again. I can't imagine they'd be very flattering (or comfortable) on anyone.

If you want to give the ol' combat boots a run for their money I'd suggest pairing them with something ultra feminine like a poufy dress to keep them from making the outfit too rough and masculine. What does everyone think about them?

xoxo, lauren

P.S. Everyone make sure to enter the Jansport Back to School contest..

Today is the last day to enter and the winners will be announced tommorow!

the harujuku girls in tokyo, the lolitas are all into such boots and like u said, they always pair it with ultra poofy skirts!!

honestly, i think they truly belong and only belong to the workers in the heavy machinery industries.
owell. or maybe only princess mia look good in them!

I like the shoes on the girls shown on the pictures, but I would never wear them.

love doc martins they are such classic shoes, talk about a blast from the past!

Doc Martins can look really cool actually. i don't think i'd wear them myself but they certainly have great potential and these people can carry them off. Totally agreee about paring them with a really feminine dress.
