The last time I used socks as an accessory I was in high school. I studied in a private school with a very strict dress code, meaning we have uniforms like below the knee skirts and neck tie but we are nothing like the Constance students in Gossip Girl, black shoes with white socks are mandatory. So of course I opt for the chicest black shoes I could buy and white socks with pretty patterns. After I graduate I never did it again, even sandals with socks thing which is a street style sensation. Doing it 5 times a week in high school made me sort of sick of doing it again.
But now, with more and more people especially street style stars are doing it much more stylish than we do it back in high school, it is also the easiest way to restyle pieces you already own to make it look new and the weather is not getting any warmer anytime soon, I have been thinking and tempted to rock it once again. Just look at these street style looks from the recent Paris Haute Couture Week shot by Young Jun Koo, Tommy Ton and others.
What do you think of shoes with socks trend?
