Trends cycle back every so often, and with that, certain pieces do as well. But if we had to pinpoint one fashion item that has been a consistent go-to staple throughout the years—regardless of time and trends—it's a pair of Dr. Martens. Since first being introduced in the '60s, the iconic work boots have always been worn, making them a true investment piece. And aside from being timeless (part of the reason it's been around for decades), the boots are extremely durable, meaning that if you buy a pair today, you can rock them for years to come. Which then leads us to our next topic—how to style the grungy footwear. Ahead we've rounded up an assortment of stylish outfits that have been grounded by the classic work boots. From teaming them with a playful midi dress to a little black skirt, here are 10 fresh (and fun) ways to wear your Dr. Martens this year.
