It is a sight that has been seen on more than one fashion catwalk this autumn. Designers Coralie Bergdoll and Emeline Noel for example are one of the first to go ahead with this new style.
They are trying to push their socks as the ideal choice for ladies who like to wear socks with high heels. At first glance this new trend gives ladies a whole ocean of new possibilities to differentiate themselves from the crowd. They will be able to combine their heels with countless of socks designs.
Some of them, we admit, do look good, altough it all depends on the type of shoe and sock combination. It will take a lot of trial and error getting this right. This is not bad as fashion always has a bit of a challenge attached to it.
But some ideas feature wearing full on classic wool socks. The ones you would normally wear at home in your pajamas when you’re cold. We’re not so sure about that and how it’s going to work, but if you’re up to the challenge, then go ahead.
Meanwhile it seems that this trend is here to stay. It’s trying to creep up its way for some time now, but it seems that it’s finally about to make it. The people at London’s College of Fashion are noting that socks are ideal for adding that extra touch to any outfit. They are slowly becoming a fashion accessorie and not only something you wear to keep your feet warm.
It is a trend that will continue next spring and summer too. Socks with high heels were present at many Spring / Summer 2015 collections. For example Saint Laurent had a few models, Sonia Rykiel too. Karl Lagerfeld did an especially interesing design for Chanel. It features a pair of patent-leather high heels with already sewn cotton socks that reach halfway along the calves.
While we prefer the classic look of a bare foot or stockings for wearing high heels, we do see why the trend will catch on. It will give ladies lots of options to spice up their outfits and be creative.
