Sneakers, statement shoes, over the knee boots, menswear – all street styles that we expect to see at fashion week. But the Paris Fashion Week trend that really caught my eye was socks paired with stilettos. We’ve seen little socks with Mary Janes before… this time, wearing socks gets a bit more edgy.
There are two things I really like about this look. One is that it’s actually more comfortable to wear socks with any pair of shoes. Less friction, less blisters. Yes, I know that “fashion is pain” but I definitely go towards comfort when fashion allows! The next reason is that wearing socks, especially in a color to get a color block look, adds instant edginess. And you can even wear socks (or tights – take a look at Blair here) with open/peep toe shoes! Not sure I will be going that far, but it’s completely acceptable.
What do you think of wearing socks with stilettos, or better yet – socks with sandals? Is this a look you’ll go for?
