How To Wear Socks Or Knee Socks With Shoes
Breaking stereotypes is a favorite trick of stylists. Eternally, they offer contradictory combinations of shades and prints, a mixture of styles and moods in one image. And now their "trick" went with a bang and with designers. A nightmare came true: socks plus sandals or shoes are no longer considered a move, and fashion police do not penalize for this, on the contrary, add a hundred or two likes.
To call this fashionable device something new is difficult. The prerequisites for him were still in the shows of the autumn collections of 2015 (Rachel Zoe, Tommy Hilfiger, Charles Youssef were ahead of the rest), but then he was taken on a pencil by the heroes of street style chronicles. On the other hand, we live in a very interesting time, when street fashion is the key source of inspiration for designers. And now it is the same story: after hitting the street from the podium, the trend returned to the podium again and was picked up. Today, in sandals or shoes with socks, you can see celebrities even on the red carpet: Kendall Jenner, for example, at the Cannes Film Festival this year was seen in nude sandals, worn on physical socks.
At the weeks of fashion in September, socks and socks played a key role. So, at the Dolce & Gabbana show, there were translucent black socks just above the ankles and lace socks, which perfectly harmonized with lace and jacquard black dresses.

Tommy Hilfiger had high ribbed stockings and a contrasting elastic with a brand's inscription (the object of desire of all logos!). Gigi Hadid has worn them with ultra-short denim shorts, but with a black mini dress they will look no less seductive.

But we like the Miu Miu solutions in the podium reading: to business gray pants - neon socks of all colors of the rainbow (the favorite reception of Italian men seems to have migrated to the women's wardrobe), and to shorts or short dresses - tight golfs, gray or colored.

At Milan Fashion Week, this trend was clearly favored. Socks and socks shone in the shows of Fendi, Gucci, Marco di Vicenzo. Single-color or with print, smooth, elastic, translucent or mesh, bright or prim-gray and black - they add a bit of drama to the image, but do not overload it.

At the London Fashion Week there were also quite a few supporters of this trend.At the shows of Anya Hindmarsh, Mary Katrantzou and Burberry socks and socks looked quite organic, adding a note of insolence and at the same time careless chic to catwalk looks.

In the end, this craze for fashionable combinatorics once again reminds us that little things create an image and even the most (seemingly!) Minor detail can change everything.
Practice and practice again
Let's be honest: socks and stockings are usually inexpensive accessories (we don’t take into account design delights like the ones that Gucci released this summer: socks with bows were sold for 28 (twenty eight, Karl!) Thousand rubles, which means that the trend does not require significant buy your socks with lurex or translucent into perky peas, with flirty bows or pom-poms on the ankle, wear with shoes, loafers, ankle boots and go to meet with friends or on a date. at the “peppercorn” without any special expenses, it turns out to be easy to be considered fashionable among friends.
