Once the sole preserve of German tourists (excuse the racial stereotyping. If it helps I can crack a joke about my fair nation's obesity problems, drug epidemic or chronic teen pregnancy rate), socks and sandals are a surprise fashion winner. It's a look I've been embracing for a while (socks = being able to wear peep toes etc in winter. For me, that extends my shoe wardrobe and, therefore, is a bit of a no brainer...) but in a relatively subtle fashion - think nude, black and white socks. However, inspired by the Man Repeller (if you haven't read her blog you should - it makes me wee myself a bit), I decided it was time to ramp up the sock action and get ridiculous. Here's how:
Take one pair of socks, preferrably with a silly pattern:
|Socks: Dorothy Perkins|
And wear with a cute pair of would-be summer shoes. Hmm. That's actually kind of it...
|Shoes: Topshop, Socks: Dorothy Perkins|
And strut! I'm definitely going to be cracking out the more interesting socks in future - as if I'd miss the chance to add yet more pattern into my look. I'm also definitely going to be writing more fashion guides. With pearls and gems like this it's sure to take off.
I love these shoes but if you read my recent post featuring the gold ones, you might know they have a crack in the sole. Here it is:
I'm just crossing my toes that they don't snap while I'm wearing them! Can you cross your toes?
