Heels and socks are a tale as old as time. We wore frilly lace socks with mid-heel Mary Jane pumps as children and we wear them now when it is cold out and we insist on not wearing proper boots, accepting the possibility of freezing our toes off in the name of vanity. Uggs be damned. With the rise of street wear – thanks to Vetements, Kanye and crew – and the seeping of sportswear into going-out wear, the classic trend has expectedly morphed along with it.
Those double or triple stripe socks you used to wear to track meets and soccer training? Take them out, because they go surprisingly well with a pair of heels. Who knew? The street style pack, that’s who.

Logo or monogram socks with a girly platform sandal. Simple monotone socks that match the details of a statement metallic loafer. Fishnet socks – in trashy terrain no more, in case you missed the memo — with a clean block heel. But honestly, if you want to wear glitter socks with glitter shoes, who are we to stop you?
