We used to hide them, we used to avoid them. Never would we have thought that they could ever become something fashionable. Well, they had their times in the 80s: Those thick, white Tennis socks that Michael Jackson pulled over his skinny blacks pants. And admittedly, they really became kind of a trend... But that's something different, right? Because today's sock trend has nothing to do with that retro style.
Brash socks are now styled with chic outfits and they like to be seen. That dotted pair you kept for when everything else is in the laundry, to be hidden underneath your jeans, is going to have its big appearance now. Socks could not be more colorful, patterned and happy than they are this season. Following the major street style trends, they have to be paired with skirts, elegant pants or even dresses. The shoe-choice is all yours, the only rule is: The bigger the contrast, the better! Socks + Sneakers? Boring. Socks + Pumps? Win!
When it comes to the socks, the possibilities are unlimited. Tennis socks are updated with statement lettering and come from big designers (Vetements x Reebok), short net socks are worn with booties as well as pumps. Heart-patterned models make high heeled feet happy and nylon pairs are as trendy as cotton ones.
This trend is probably not made for everyone. (Fashion-) shy girls will most likely not be the firsts to get those bold pink socks to (mis-) match their white pumps. But let us tell you something that may let you consider this trend for you: It's simply fun. And happy. And gives your whole look a cheerful touch. Isn't this was fashion should be all about?
