Drew Barrymore’s Doc Martin Fashion Rut

What can you say about Doc Martins.

At one point in the mid ninties, they were all the rage. In fact, Drew Barrymore might even be considered the poster child for irreverent grungy chic style and eclectic uses for these chunky boots in such classic films as Mad Love (yum, Chris O’Donnell).

But are Doc Martins, skinny suspenders and pants that are suspiciously close to being pleated stuffed in said Doc Martins ever an appropriate choice?

I think not. Especially when you are in Los Angeles headed to your agents office. There are at least five zillion other clothing combinations that would be better than this cheap Samantha Ronson/Tank Girl looking rip-off of an outfit.

Topping it off with gaudy gold hoop earrings? Now that’s just rude, Drew.

      I think it’s pretty bloody sad that the skinhead style is being used by clueless fashionistas and hipsters. It was bad enough that a movement based on English working class mods and Jamaican music culture was ripped off by right wing groups such as the National Front and their ilk, but to see it being used by those who don’t even have a clues to it true origins let alone the political and media perversions is just a sign of mass ignorance and sheepish behavior from those who get their looks from TV and fashion magazines.

      Boots and Braces(suspenders) are part of a subculture, that what makes them cool. But once it goes maintstream and is being used by those who don’t have a single clue in how to wear it properly, it then ceases to be cool. This is what fashion designers always fail to understand. Just because it looks great on the streets doesn’t mean it’ll translate well to the catwalks.
