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.
