Yes, you read that right, socks have become the hottest accessory. From being a partner-in-crime to your canvas shoes in school to now being an editorial statement in the fashion world, socks have now gotten a major upgrade. This understated accessory got an overhaul on the international runway a few seasons ago. The trend of wearing socks with heels has now expanded to many styles of shoes. A year ago we would have questioned the combo, but we have warmed up to this transitional trend because of the variety of statement socks now available. Here are 5 ways you can pull-off this not-so-basic trends.
Try out the colour-blocking trend from head to toe. Team your ripped jeans with a cosy sweatshirt and a crossbody sling. Continue colour-blocking with a warmer shade of socks teamed with contrasting heels. Throw in fish-net stockings as an edgier detail to the outfit.
Formal dressing can be fun too. Quirk it up with thigh-high socks or stockings teamed with shorts and contrasting loafers. Bonus points for coloured striped stockings or socks. Let the blouse peek out through the blazer. Add an envelope clutch to this mix and this outfit is hard to miss.
Go for the comfort of athleisure style by teaming a feminine top with track pants and jacket. Add a pop of colour with your rainbow socks and pair them with strappy heels. Get the complete look with a cool backpack.
Team your kimono jacket with your LBD and accentuate your waist with a wide belt. To show off the trend, grab a pair of micro net socks and divert the attention to your feet by adding bright block-heel shoes.
You can make a statement with this trend for a party night, as well. A velvet wrap top over a billowy skirt make for a fabulous combo, and a shrug just adds a layer to this. Shimmery thigh-high socks with brogues is a great addition to this type of ensemble.
