Street Style Approved: Socks + Heels

Atlanta personal stylist, Melodie Stewart, Top Atlanta blogger

As a black girl growing up, I can remember wearing the frilly ruffle ankle socks with my Sunday church shoes.  And don’t let it be Christmas, Easter, a special event or a program at school. That’s when mom pulled out the big fancy ruffled socks.  It’s almost funny to think that I can still pull off this old fashion style combo, but with heels.  Whomever thought to introduce this trend into adulthood is brilliant and creative (and I wish I’d thought of it first.)

Although Fall is officially here doesn’t mean you have to put away your summer heels.  This is the perfect time to stretch your summer heels into the cooler months.  Pairing your cutest heeled sandal with socks issa look.

 The great thing about this trend is that you can rock a fancy sock, a colored sock, knee-length socks, ankle socks, socks with patterns or a plain white tube sock if you want.  The point is socks with heels is a bold fashion statement and a great way to be a little more adventurous with your style.

Are you into the socks + heels trend?  Comment about it below. 

*I’ve also included pics of a few other times I’ve played around with this trend below.

Black And White Is Hands Down The Best Color Combo... Ever!

I don't care what anybody says, black and white together in practically any combination is Bombtastic!!! It's such a timeless classic combo that when wore together screams bold, chic, sophistication and style.  The nice part about mixing these two colors together is that you don't have to be a fashion guru to get it right.

Now that we are officially in summer, I wanted to make sure my look faired well among the colorful hues of the season.  Any other time, I would have mix printed the heck out of this skirt, but instead settled on a more subtle look.  Wanting the skirt to be the main attraction, I layered with the solid colors of the vest and blouse from Target.  Both pieces accented the stripes in the skirt nicely. 

It was only right that I finish off the look with this matching black and cream satchel bag from ShoeDazzle (bad news, it's sold out) and fringed heels from JustFab (sold out)  Today's outfit post is what I'd like to call corporate chic.  What say ye?  What is your take on the black and white trend?
