Your mom probably told you that socks and heels don’t go together. It’s simply not done. However, times are changing, and if you have the right combination of accessories, you can definitely pull off this look. Your feet will stay warmer, too. Follow these steps so that your high heels and socks can be best friends.
Match the Colors
Start out by matching the colors of your socks and shoes. Pick a heel in your favorite color, such as gold. Match it with the same sock color. It can reach your ankle or your knee. Your chosen style will ultimately create an unforgettable look.
White, beige and gold are a few subtle colors for your matching socks and shoes. However, you can also stand out from the crowd by selecting bright colors. Yellow, blue or red might be the colors that you love the most. Follow the same matching scenario to see your outfit “pop” on the street.
Try Thin and Classy
You might have some strappy pumps that you want to show off, but the temperatures are dipping today. Avoid any thick socks with these shoes and consider a thin sock for this look. Socks with embellishments or a pantyhose texture are perfect for this style. You could match some of the shoe’s color to the sock. The style should complement a skirt or dress in most cases. Although, dressy capris might work with your socks and heels, too.
Do a Peek-a-boo
If you’re still unsure about your style, consider a peek-a-boo scenario. Wear ankle boots with a subtle heel, and pair them with bold socks that just stretch above the top of your boots. You can offer some color at the ankle level without telling the world that there’s a pair of socks under your boots. In some cases, the socks look like an extension of the boot itself. After a successful day with the boots, you might venture onto another look that’s a bit more distinct.
Experiment With Every Heel
Most heels will work with the proper socks. Pumps, high heels and sandals can all be worn with socks. If you have flats, you may want to stay away from the sock style because your feet and legs won’t have an attractive shape when you pair flats with socks. It’s reminiscent of those school-girl days. Instead, pick out a pair of heels to get creative with your favorite pair of socks.
