Your guide to the *cutest* Doc Martens

You might not be performing center stage on your own Sour Tour, but your outfits can still be just as daring. That's right—it's time to channel your inner Olivia Rodrigo with a fun pair of Doc Martens. Level up your outfits with these pop-punk platforms, because we've rounded up the prettiest pairs below.

Classic White Platform

Doc Martens, $200

These not-so-basic shoes are perfect for daily wear. Ofc, it's fun to have a super extra collection of shoes, but it's also necessary to have options you can throw on with any outfit. Pairing these with a baby tee and jeans = punk chic perfection. Rocking them with a black mini dress? Equally as stunning.

'90s Edge Patent Leather

Doc Martens, $160

If you want to take your look up a notch on the edgy scale, these boots are an essential. Worn with a velvet midi dress and silver chain jewelry, patent leather is the cherry on top in this killer look. The '90s vibe brings the ensemble together with a vintage touch. 

Cutesy Back-to-School Oxfords

DSW, $159.99

The chic school girl vibe is the best way to rock your fall style. Pair these with a plaid mini skirt and t-shirt for a transitional summer-to-fall look.
Pro tip: Planning outfits the night before can help romanticize your school day. 

Simple Everyday Mary Janes

Doc Martens, $160

Meet your newest first day of school bestie. Another classy take on the simple school-girl look, Mary Janes can pull any outfit together. You'll be styling these shoes all semester long. Try a black midi skirt, tank top and frilly socks for a totally trendy vibe.

Decorative Floral Moment 

Doc Martens, $180

Let's be honest: It might seem impossible to make flowers edgy, but these Doc Martens do the trick. Match the red flowers to a red mini dress for a color-coordinated look, then elevate with a black faux-leather blazer to reach ultimate edginess.
