HOW TO STYLE SUMMER SANDALS, BY DOCS STORE STAFF

Sandals: the Docs way. Stacked with just as much attitude as our boots and shoes, our summer sandals are ready for anything you can throw at them. We asked Fabienne, Galyam, Sharon and Vanessa from our stores how they’ve been wearing their Dr. Martens women’s sandals.

My style is a mix of urban fashion and vintage clothing. On a day to day basis, my go-to shoes would be the Jadon Max boot. The Gryphon flat sandals are my favourites. They are easy to put on, easy to dress and the silver buckles add the little bit of edge that us Dr. Martens wearers love.

The first look is a simple summer day look. A colourful bodysuit and a pair of black shorts. As the Gryphons are black, you can wear pretty much everything/every colour with them. This is the kind of outfit I would wear for a catch up with the girls.

"You can wear them with pretty much anything"

The second outfit is for my denim lovers. I chose to wear my Gryphons with black Dr. Martens socks because YES you can wear socks with sandals! This is the kind of fit I would wear for after-work drinks.

For this look I chose to put on second-hand dungarees paired with a floral-printed shirt and a rosy wig. I wore the sandals cross-over without any socks on and picked up the black from the Docs with a black bucket hat. It’s a very comfy outfit.

“Wearing DMs makes me feel very powerful.
I love how they look and how versatile they are.”

For this look I chose to wear a utility midi skirt paired with a lilac crop top and a glittery purple vintage blouse. I topped it off with a 2000s-inspired shiny bag, heart-shaped sunglasses and of course, the DM’s sandals with different socks on. I love wearing cute socks underneath the sandals, because it puts the focus on the shoes and it looks super cool in my opinion. This outfit is quite modern and was a lot of fun to wear.

My personal style has always been quite edgy, although I do love to wear a girly dress or skirt combined with some boots and a Quad sole to toughen up my look. What I like most about the Gryphon black sandals is that they are a classic Dr. Martens style that will never go out of fashion. They really go with any outfit and most importantly, are super comfortable too.

I went for a slightly vintage look with the oversized silk shirt combined with cycle shorts. I love how the sandals make this outfit a bit more casual and add a little edge to it.

“Docs shoes instantly make me feel like I am ready to take on the world”

My second look is hugely inspired by Harajuku street style, with a little edgy twist. I’m a big fan of wearing socks and sandals, as this can completely change the look and feel of your entire outfit.

For my first look, I paired a short sleeve black leather shirt with a zebra print mini skirt. I really love the oversized fit of the shirt as it sits at a perfect length to show just enough of the zebra print. I then added some black socks with my sandals to block the colour and to show how good the sandals look with or without. I would ideally wear this on a day out, brunch or to a day event.

"When I wear Docs I feel free and rebellious"

For the second look I thought to go a little more casual and with a message. I chose my friends “eat, love [don’t be racist] and pray t-shirt along with these loose fit jeans. This t-shirt speaks volumes especially in these times whilst allowing me to look trendy. I love how my jeans sit on these sandals, the sole gives the shoe such a nice shape and structure and they don’t get lost under the jeans.
