If you’re going to try a new trend it might as well be one as inexpensive as going into your top drawer and pulling out a pair of socks! I know it seems kind of odd- socks and heels? But trust me when I say that this season’s chicest shoes will only look more stylish when paired with socks.
Women don’t usually wear socks when wearing a trendy outfit, but it looks like socks are coming back and making a statement. From Louis Vuitton and Prada, to Burberry we are seeing socks all over the runways!
Socks-and-shoes is certainly not a new concept, but it is fantastic timing considering we are not quite ready to cover up our legs or pack away our sandals, yet the cold weather is certainly starting to make an appearance. Slip on a pair of socks, and you’re ready for autumn while totally making a fashion statement.
Here is how you can pull this trend off:
1. The school girl socks
Anything of the black, grey or white plain Jane variety. Plain is not your thing but the rest of your look is so loud that the socks can be low-key. Work perfectly with a nice loafer (tassel optional but definitely favourable) and can be sourced anywhere.
2. Standout socks x crazy-cool kicks
Animal motifs, slogans and print sock styles are spot on for pairing up with a white tee, boyfriend jeans and trainer combo. You're effortlessly fresh, with a any-pair-don't-care attitude.
3. Thrills for frills
Perfect for doing that grungy-girl thing and best teamed with a chunky buckle-strap boot.
4. Knee-highs WITH flat sandals
If the catwalk can, you totally can. Work that sports-luxe trend, baby...
5. Sheer socks x killer heels
This is how to up the anti on a Saturday night when you're strutting your stuff
