Exposed socks? I am so pleasantly recalling this as my favorite things to wear as a little girl. I had a pair of white short socks to go with tiny sandals and a pair of blue knee-high ones. My fashion sense must have dated from back then (joking!). And, just a few years ago girls and women alike started wearing them again with heels or boots, so although it’s been around for a while (or better said it never left) this trend  is yet again making quite a statement.

Could we hold… say… the Gossip Girls or Dolce & Gabbana responsible for this new fad? The designers’ Alta Moda & 2012/2013 Autumn Winter Collection betray their vision of us women this season. And it’s quite clear: retro glamour or sexy nerd in strong tones, black, lots of embellishments and  knee high socks with stunning heels and hot shoes. 

Hmmm. Still a bit skeptical? So was I. Hell I used to hate this trend of the woman who refused to give up on her childish fashion roots. But… (bowing my head and changing colors) I am strongly reconsidering my taste on this one.

…is the perfect Trend for 2013 Winter. These comfy sexy, fun, playful feet cover-ups offer infinite styling options, millions of choices, designs, lengths, textures, colors, prints, styles… Oh my God just thinking of it makes me wanna try this trend over and over again. Polka dots, stripes, suspender, skeleton & bones mock socks, sheer, black, striped, white, lace, lingerie-like, knitted, short, girly, hot, sexy, nerdy, knee-high, over-the-knee… Millions I tell you!

And yes they do look  fantastic with heel shoes (chunky think ones, stilettos, court shoes, sandals, peep toe, pumps) & boots. Short simple or coloured socks (textured, printed or basic) look very sexy with stilettos & court shoes – a bit like business woman meets school girl and what you get is a fun quirky style that looks amazing. You can wear them with short, knee-length or maxi skirts, dresses, knits, jeans – depending on the style and look you’re going for. Naughty, nerdy or fun.coloured-socks-styleexposed-socks-sandals-trendexposed-socksexposed-socks-skirtexposed-socks-styleexposed-socks-trendkate-moss-girly-socksmarc-jacobs-skirt-sockspumps-with-socks-lookshort-socks-heel-shoesshort-socks-stylesocks-dress-stylesocks-fashionsocks-heeled-shoessocks-heeled-shoes-trend-stylesocks-office-looksocks-withheels-dress-looksocks-with-heels-trendsocks-with-sandals-looksocks-with-skirt-fashion-stylewhite-socks-heels-maxi skirtwhite-socks-heels-shortsTo stay warm on those windy freezing winter days get you long socks out girls and pull them over your knees. For a boho-chic, comfy, sexy, but urban look opt for knitted ones in grey, black, nudes, or browns. They go with anything and compliment every single outfit: shorts & silky tops or slouchy sweaters, skirts and sophisticated blouses or cardigans worn with a belt, knitted dresses or long sweaters.

For more of a party look (well with Holiday season here) you can opt for black over-the-knee socks (my black obsession kicks in again) or embellished ones with a black dress (large, slouchy princess like one for a girly boho chic look, or tight one with long sleeves for a sleek style).

Add a blazer or fur vest on top and you’ll be mixing comfy with chic & sophisticated. So yes… I am in love with this trend perhaps a little too much, but it can do no harm especially on this cold weather. It’s literally out with the socks this season! For more inspiration I’ve used some amazing photos I found on Pintrest, or… you can always take notes from Rihanna, Sarah Jessica Parker or Leighton Meester. I mean, if these girls can rock this trend with the whole world scrutinizing them, why can’t we? Long, short, colored or basic socks with heels, pumps, sandals or boots? Which one’s your style?

    Zo ongelooflijk leuk! Sokken in je hakken geeft net dat casual randje maar het blijft wel classy. Het is al hellemaal mooi als je een getinte huid hebt, om dan lichtblauwe pumps aan te doen met zwart-witte streepjes sokken dat is echt zo mooi bij je huid! Valentina

      I think that with black ankle socks it always look good, from now on, girls shoul just think “am I more comfy with socks or barefoot with these heels?” some prefer socks, so just act accordingly.
