When it comes to eye-catching accessories this season’s lineup does not disappoint—from statement platforms to sporty sunglasses—spring’s It accoutrements will make any outfit infinitely cooler. There’s one accessory (well, rather two worn together) that is particularly winning our hearts this season even though it’s always been considered a bit of a fashion no-no, but the fashion crowd are proving this is no longer the case. We’re talking about socks styled with heels. Yep, everything about the style statement feels fresh and of-the-moment offering a unique look our current wardrobes have been craving.
Like most trends, this duo arose from the S/S 22 runways—with designers such as Miu and Miu (the line that catapulted that ubiquitous mini skirt outfit) styling calf-length neutral socks with heeled slingback loafers and T-Strap heels. And the fashion set has been quick to catch on—as evidenced on the streets at Fashion Week.
So how do you style this tricky trend like a fashion girl this spring? Luckily, all types of shoes will look chic with socks—platforms, slingbacks, Mary-Janes—take your pick. We suggest pairing your heels with a mid-calf length sock slightly slouched which sits in the spectrum of neutral hues (to let the shoe do most of the talking). Then just add a mini or midi skirt so you can show off the trend in style. Get inspired on how to style the look below, then shop our favorite socks and heels to wear together.
