Knowing how to dress during the weeks stretching from the end of summer to the beginning of autumn can be complicated, but fashion girls everywhere have come up with a solution, in the form of the humble ankle sock.
Forget everything you thought you knew about not pairing socks with sandals – everyone from singers Rihanna and Rita Ora to supermodel Kendall Jenner has been rocking the trend of late. But pairing your favourite footwear (you can also road test the look with closed shoes, sneakers and boots) with a statement sock not only creates an instantly directional look – it also serves a practical purpose for inter-seasonal dressing. Here are five ways to test out the trend.
Kendall Jenner made headlines earlier this year when she showed up on the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival wearing a pair of sheer socks with her Jimmy Choo ‘Minny’ sandals. Sheer socks are a subtle way of tapping into the trend, and have the added advantage of matching all your shoes.
The next step up from the sheer sock is the mesh version, which will add a little attitude to your look. It will lend your footwear a playful texture and depth.
Add a sporty vibe to your ensemble with a pair of preppy, wool socks.
Prolong summer for as long as possible by opting for a pair of socks in a pretty pastel hue.
Finally, show your appreciation for the ankle sock trend by going all out with a bold, decorative pair.
