Happy Feet

How do you feel about the socks + heels trend? It seems like everyone I know either loves it or hates it. Personally, I can't get enough of the look.

The trick here is to pair like with like. Dainty heels need to be coordinated with thinner fabrics while chunkier heels and boots look best with thicker knitted socks. A key point in pulling off the socks and heels combo is to shy away from eclectic mixes. A wild frenzy of patterns and colors will make it look like you forgot to do the laundry instead of translating into effortless cool.

With proper coordination, you can even pair socks and heels together for an evening look.

*If anyone tries to tell you that wearing socks with heels is a fashion faux pas, gently remind them that the most iconic heels in Hollywood were worn with baby blue socks!


  1. I'm bloving this trend too! Perfect for fall!

  2. I love this trend! Especially the dainty high heeled example that you showed :)

  3. Thank you for checking out my blog! I really appreciate it! I personally like the sock and heel combo! but my legs are too shortt and chunky to pull it off im afraid :(

    Excited to see more postss from you!! Do you have a link to your bloglovin?

  4. I adore this look, but can never seem to find the right shoe/sock combination.


  5. I think it has alot to do about how you use it.. I really like picture one with the beige sandal and grey sock, the grey boot withbthe grey sock and the black clog with white socks, but I wouldn't even think about wearing the others, they ain't my style at all.
