Say it with us: warmer temps are ALMOST here! 🥳 That means it’s nearly time to break out the summer 'drobe with your best floaty dresses, shorts and ofc... SHOES 👞 No sunny-szn steeze is complete without an equally cool pair of kicks to go with it – that’s just facts. When it comes to iconic footwear, Dr. Martens reign supreme, and since they’ve just dropped new sandals in vibey shades for the new szn, we thought we’d get some stylish ASOSers to test ‘em out and tell us their fave DM styling tips, summer stories and more! 🔻

How would you describe your sunny style?
Easy – sun's out, legs out, colours out 🫶 I’m all about bold brights in the warmer weather, coz when else can you wear ALL your prints and pastels at once? I also love shorts and skirts as I’m always looking for an excuse to tan my legs 😋

Love it. Now, important Q here: boot, sandal or shoe?
Usually, I’m a sneaker girl through and through, but for summer, I'll make an exception – I LOVE me a sandal, especially with a back strap for more support ❤️‍🔥

Tell us a Dr. Martens story...
Last summer, I went to Paris with my friends and walked six days straight in my black Jadon boots. I wore them with every outfit, on every occasion, day & night! They are the perfect boot you can dress up or down so if you're thinking of bringing a pair of boots on a city break, go for Dr. Martens every time 🖤🥾

You can only choose one: boot, sandal or shoe?
Platform sandals are a must for sunny szn in 2023. I’m gonna be living in my Dr. Martens sandals coz they’re perf for day or night – wherever you’re going – and they’re ideal for the hotter weather ahead of us ☀️


Nice. How're you going to rock your DMs this summer?
As soon as the sun comes out to stay (hopefully 🤞) I will be walking tall around London in my Dr. Martens Blaire sandals. They give me as much confidence as the best pair of heels... but they're actually comfy and look effortless – it's a win-win situ! I hope I can show them off in other cities too, coz I need to be catching some flights this summer ✈️


Tell us about your summer style... 
My goal for summer dressing this year is colourful, comfortable and light 🎨 I like mixing simple but classic staples with vibrant colours and/or prints. My ideal outfit for a casj kind of day would be a denim maxi skirt, a printed crop top – I'm loving green atm – and some sandals 💚

OK, we need to know how you'll be stylin' these sandals for sunny szn!
Dr. Martens are my go-to during the summer months, espesh at a gig or festival coz they’re durable and give me that little bit of extra height (and confidence!) It's always a platform for me – I'd pick ‘em every day without fail, come rain or shine ☔️


Describe your summer style – go! 
Bright and vibrant colours to match the brighter days and weather! Socks and sandals (an elite combo), and an oversized T-shirt as an extra layer if it’s not super-warm out 🫧 

Boot? Sandal? Shoe? Choose ONE.
It depends on the type of day really (espesh coz I live in the UK) – I’d probably say sandals when I’m going on hols, but my Dr. Martens boots are def making an appearance for festival szn – they're the best for dancing in 🪩
