WORDS BY AMELIA BELL
Ganni’s slogans, Gucci’s logos, No 21’s super frills - whoever said socks were boring? Not us - they’re a key accessory for SS18, adding a casual spin to your fanciest shoes, and making it possible to wear your favourite sandals even when it’s raining outside. But needless to say, Velcro-strapped dad sandals with argyles are not invited to the party, so take a look at these do’s and don’ts, then get creative with your footwear...
DON’T overlook Miu’s Miu’s embellished party pumps. Yes they make a statement on their own, but by adding a simple sock in this season’s favourite lilac hue, you can strut your stuff at the head of the fash pack.
DO brave it in chunky sandals and socks - a win this Spring. Warning: sandal choice is key of course, but take style cues from experts like Jacquemus, Gucci and Dolce & Gabbana - partner yours with simple coloured socks only.
DO follow Burberry’s mish-mashed lead by employing classic checks and cool streetwear. You’ll need a pair of tartan heels and a scrunched-up pair of logoed Off-White socks to get to channel the quintessentially British brand’s new look.
DON’T stop at one Fendi logo sock. Not when the pieces look this good. As an added bonus the iconic Italian design house makes styling socks with heels look so easy, thanks to their range of matching slingbacks and colour-block socks.
