Because it’s never thaaaat cold in California, I have never tried the socks and heels trend. A couple weeks ago, an Instagram follower DM’d me and asked me to share my take on the trend, so this blog post is for her. (Don’t hesitate to DM me if you have any fashion requests.)
Socks paired with heels look is useful for those that live in colder climates. And, if you live in warmer climates, I’d say the look is more of a cute layering style. I also feel like there is apprehension about wearing socks and heels, but try it and experiment with it. I want this post to be proof that fashion is about experimenting with different pieces, because fashion is supposed to be fun, and socks don’t cost that much, so it’s a look that is super easy to embrace!! And, there are SOOO many adorable and chic socks out there – I found a dreamy pair of tulle star socks, edgy sheer sparkly tube socks, and a pair of fuzzy ones.
This is my first time trying the socks and heels look, so I decided to share two looks with ya’ll.
A monochrome look makes the sock and shoe trend so much easier to embrace. I bought a pair of ‘faux cashmere’ like socks to match my 7 for All Man Kind denim skirt and Missme Knit Sweater , but If grey isn’t your thing, I totally recommend a pair of black socks with an all black look, maybe even a sheer pair of sheer black socks to make the look a bit edgy. I love a pop of color and saw how cute a pair of socks looked with a pair of sling backs, so I went with my Sam Edelman Loren Slingback . The contrast of grey and coral totally makes a gloomy Monday so much more fun!!
I choose the sparkly socks for a more dressy fall/winter party look. To tie in the grey sparkly socks I chose an emerald green slip dress with a grey turtleneck (for added warmth) and for a festive POP of color I’m chose a pair of Lavender Heels from Steve Madden.
