ankle socks with heels – Fridays Off

ankle socks with heels

I'm sorry but I'm just not down with this trend. Sure it looks great on the stick thin models we see gracing the fashion mags and runways, but when us regular Betty's start sporting the look with our short legs, big calves, you name it, it's really a bad look!

All you fashionistas can scoff at me all you want, but trust (I'm just trying to help), this trend is going to come back to bite you in the ass. I say stick with ankle boots but if you must follow suit here are some tips to do it right (that's right, I'm giving fashion advice):

  • stick with sock colours that contrasts with your shoes
  • make sure the socks hit just above the ankle this gives the illusion of long, lean legs (but really only if you have the gangly legs)
  • tone it down with straight forward pieces (crazy feet means simple/clean look on top)

Good luck!

I recall this look being somewhat in fashion back in 1980 or so. When I was a pre-teen reading Seventeen magazine, they had models in this look. I didn’t go for it then, and I don’t now either. It’s somewhat of a ‘50s trend, isn’t it? It’s just not a good look – cuts you off at the worst possible place on your leg.
