5 REASONS WHY SOCKS ARE SO SS18
By Caroline Ferry, March 24, 2018
The weather this month has been surreal, to put it lightly. But the street style set are resourceful, and nothing, not even multiple blizzards, will stop these women from christening their spring shoes. The key to making it work? Socks, of course... and they’re no longer reserved for workout Wednesdays. Here’s how the fashion crowd are styling theirs for chill, fancy and even work-appropes wonder-looks.
If you’ve been living in your ankle boots for what feels like an eternal winter, give them a day off and pair your pencil skirt with pointy heels once again. Sporty-striped socks make a trad pencil skirt and suit jacket look totally fresh and fun.

The thought of double denim and pointed slingbacks may fill you with mid-2000s nostalgia (or dread), but actually the addition of some first-day-of-school bright white socks (plus bonus turtleneck layering) make it all feel very SS18. A masterclass in that high/low mixing.
Although undisputedly cool, not everyone feels right rocking an oversized suit jacket, and that’s fair enough. But actually, adding some simple little socks into the equation seamlessly makes it feel so right with your most-loved jeans and plaid shirt. Potentially, the very definition of trans-seasonal style.
Remember the fishnets you were wearing with Stan Smiths last year? Dig them out, 'cause you’ll be needing them once more. Add in those '90s favorites to your newly-'80s-workwear look, for a decade dash you’ll wanna wear over the weekend too.
If, like us, you’ve spent the last five or so years figuring out how you could recreate Carrie Bradshaw’s NYE look as she hotfoots it to Miranda’s apartment, then this is for you. Chill track pants? Check. Fancy coat? Check. Socks and sandals? Check, check, check!
