One of the latest additions to my closet has been my Dr Marten Leona boots. There are so many different styles to choose from, but the chunky sole on these made me fall in love. I’ve been pairing them with my SPANX faux leather leggings a lot which you can see here. But one of the main looks I could not wait to create with my Dr. Marten boots was pairing them with a cute dress. It’s such a great juxtaposition of a feminine dress paired with chunky combat Dr. Martens.
How To Wear Dresses With Dr Martens
Can You Wear Dresses With Dr Martens?
Pairing Dr Martens with dresses is always a great idea if you ask me. I feel like there are definitely certain types of dresses that pair well and some that are just a hard no, but not many! For me, since I have short legs, I actually prefer a mini dress paired with Doc Martens. Showing off some leg (using my Vita Liberata blurring lotion is key too) helps to elongate my legs and make me feel less stumpy. But midi dresses and even maxis can work well too with the right style of dresses.

These boots really do go with so much. And can be worn from late summer as a transition shoe into fall, all the way until we get into spring. The outfit ideas are truly endless. And trust me, you can rock them. There are several different styles of Dr Martens to choose from and I’m sure you can find ones that work for your personal style. From patent leather Dr Martens to white leather ones and more. So let’s start with some Dr Martens with a few popular styles below.
Paired With Flowy Mini Dresses
Obviously, I love them paired with mini dresses and this flowy one from Mango that I’m wearing is a great mix of feminine details but also keeping a neutral palette for a chic and edgy look. I also love a belt with a more flowy dress to cinch the waist, it’s simply more flattering. Easily add black tights to this look for a more winter friendly outfit for when the temps get cooler. And of course, don’t forget a great jacket. A leather jacket, or wool trench is a great addition to this look.
Paired With Midi Dresses
Another great option especially if you’re a bit taller, is pairing these combat boots with midi dresses. Go for flowy midi dresses like the minis, or try one that’s a bit more fitted like a ribbed knit sweater dress for winter. You can also pair these with tights to make them great winter outfits. I particularly love a midi dress paired with any of Dr Marten’s women’s heeled boots too to add more length as a midi can shorten your legs. But the Leona boots I have with the platform help to add some height too.
