Socks and stockings : fundamental in the wardrobe of each (and each of us) of us, in recent times they are experiencing a ” fashion ” declination that until a few years ago they did not have.

Socks: not only useful but… fashionable!

Yes, because, as many of you ask and ask, it seems that socks are back in fashion ; or, better, since we all wear socks with sneakers, closed shoes and boots, socks are no longer relegated to a useful accessory but to be kept hidden, but have become a real fashion habit, with which to play and indulge in combinations !


A habit:

A habit that, however – I know because you wrote it to me several times in the comments on social media – does not like it and does not convince everyone : ok that socks are in fashion, but some find that, worn with sandals and heels, they are anything but elegant.

On the other hand, there are those who, like me, do not use them often but appreciate their versatility and above all appreciate the ability of some girls to wear them and combine them with practically everything without ever missing a beat: not an easy task, since sock, especially when they are short at the ankle, they have the ungrateful ability to shorten even the leanest leg.

Also thanks to the return of the athleisure trend (get ready, because we will see around many white terry sock combined with stiletto shoes, as you can see in the photo above) and the big trend of wide fishnet sock (with their corresponding short sock version) , let’s try to understand together how to match socks and what type of shoes to choose to create a particular mix that does not make us turn up our noses.

wear it with ballet flats or mid-heels with a retro flavor. The glitter shoes or the flat velvet ballet flats with a strap closed by the button are perfect: but pay attention to your age, because this mix is ??very Lolita and slipping into the “out of place” is an instant (here you will find some pink ribbed socks ).
