I love them grin

But wtf do I wear them with?

I own a lovely leather jacket. And a pair of ripped black jeans

Do I need to buy Guns n Roses tshirts now and a choker?

Well my dd has those exact ones!
She wears them with denim shorts, leggings and vest tops with a trilby. But she's 12 so maybe not that grin
She loves them although I don't think she'll be wearing them much longer as she's outgrowing them sad

KeithRichardsPetCat Tue 21-Jun-16 22:21:23

Oh to be 12 again blush I did have a look at an ancient MN thread - apparently coloured DMs are for children only blush

I'm 26 on Saturday. Definitely still a child

Brilliant, embrace it!
Dd saw my cousin wearing them, she's 27. She thought they were so cool and asked for them for her birthday. She has also worn them with skinny jeans and oversized jumpers, and once with a floaty dress but she isn't really a dress girl.
Just wear them, they're fun! I am queen of navy and brown (clearly boring at the age of 31 grin ) but I love seeing people wearing bright colours, so cheery smile

They are all of the fun wink I am very excited to wear them out. Toddler DS has a blue pair..he can pull everything off though envy

It's acceptable to go out matching your baby, yes?

You're 26! Wear it!

I wore my floral ones yesterday and I'm pushing 38!

I have purple ones- wear them with jeans, jeggings....

I'm waaay older than you 40

I love them so much grin my bank account hates them due to the online shopping I've just done to compliment them blush

my friend has the same ones and shes 50. She looks amazing in them

i have the same ones and wear them with everything and anything, usually either skinny jeans and a comic tee or a dress and cardigan. You're never too grown up for DM's!

I have pewter ones..
..I'm 48 confused

SuperFlyHigh Wed 22-Jun-16 12:21:23

If it was me I'd never wear them (even the darker ones!) but with you with the pink ones (and being younger) I'd wear them with loads:-

Tube skirts (the whistles etc ones)
Breton striped tops
Utility jacket
Navy blazer
Biker jacket
Leggings
Jeans
Dresses
Denim skirts or dresses
Shorts (all kinds)

In fact there's nothing off the top off my head you could NOT wear them with! Go for it!

I have these ones! I'm 36 and I love them, I don't care what people say!

ItGoesWithoutSaying Wed 22-Jun-16 12:45:47

I have black patent ones and purple ones. I wear them with opaque tights mainly with skirts, shorts, dresses, biker jackets, etc, etc.

I am old - over 40.

KeithRichardsPetCat Wed 22-Jun-16 16:18:38

I didn't say I or anyone was too old for them - I said a previous MN thread said they were too old

I was just asking what could I wear with them hmm

Floisme Wed 22-Jun-16 19:11:31

I don't think they should be any trickier than a bright pink jumper. You can either keep everything else pretty low key - either smart or casual - and let the docs take centre stage or go all clashy clashy.

They're lovely.

KittyKrap - please link to pewter DMs.
I lived in red ones until I was 30.

YvaineStormhold Wed 22-Jun-16 19:15:17

DP bought me those for my 40th.

Wear them with pride, OP.

YvaineStormhold Wed 22-Jun-16 19:16:23

Oops, just RTFT.

Keep everything black or denim and put the boots centre stage, imo.

Fuzzywuzzywasabear Wed 22-Jun-16 19:22:02

I have purple ones wear them with everything love them!

Black tights and dresses/skirts or jeans/leggings.

While pregnant I've been wearing them with neon socks to jazz up my boring basics maternity wardrobe grin

I'm also in my 30's
