Wear Socks With Heels, YES You Can Pull It Off
No, You will not look like the tourist in the hiking sandals, promise!
You can thank Prada for pushing the heels worn with socks trend, but you can more thank the stylistic street set for making this look right!
There is always the intrinsic fear that if you don’t have the knack, you can end of looking like an out of place tourist in a big city wearing a pair of comfort sandals and tube socks… the fashionless and don’t give a damn on vacation set.
However if you pull this trend off, you can look very chic, comfy, and even a bit cheeky.
The key is to pair an otherwise fabulous pair of shoes with socks that are just a tad left of basic.
- Fancy shoes, yes. Fancy socks, not so much.
- Your shoes should also NOT be so dainty- nothing too spiky, noting too pointy. A little sturdiess by way of a platform or stacked heel works.
Stylesight spotted these four Street Chic socks worn with heels looks to get you inspired.
