Socks, the new trendy fashion accessory

Exposed socks are definitely popular with designers and influencers. But where does this new trend come from?

In the end, it's quite logical:fashion is for 7/8 pants, cuffed jeans and, more broadly, exposed ankles.

But what is usually between a shoe and the bottom of a pair of pants? The sock ! All the conditions were therefore met for the sock to benefit from a good dusting and turn into an accessory in its own right. Stylish socks allow you to transform any outfit into a trendy look, and at a lower cost. We know that following trends can quickly become expensive, but a pair of socks only represents a very reasonable budget, so treat yourself! Worn with pumps they awaken our punk side, in a pair of derbies they give us a pretty British touch, sequined they transform any outfit into a party look... In short, the possibilities are endless (or almost) thanks to socks. We give you some ideas.

7 original and stylish socks to wear proudly

The leopard sock:for the fashionista

The leopard print passes the seasons without taking a wrinkle, and adapts to all trends. It is therefore no surprise that it is found on the socks of fashionistas. To adopt the trend, we advise you to associate them with a relatively sober outfit:XXL sweater, slim black jeans with turn-ups and white dad shoes for example.

The polka dot sock:for the vintage

The polka dot pattern is definitely one of our favorites. It works perfectly well on all clothes, and of course the sock is no exception ! To properly wear the polka dot sock, you have several options. Either you opt for a really vintage model, in white cotton with black or red polka dots for example, to wear with rolled up mom jeans, a white T-shirt and a pair of classic white sneakers. Another option is to choose a transparent sock, in tights, say, with black polka dots. This type of polka dot socks are more feminine, and will work well with a slightly dressier look like a dress or midi length skirt. Wear them with pumps or open-heeled sandals.

The ruffled sock:for the babydoll

The ruffled sock is definitely the cutest option. It recalls the Sunday outfits of our mothers and children, and brings a note of delicious freshness to an outfit. Our advice for wearing it well:avoid the total nostalgic look! On the contrary, it is preferable to offset the ruffled sock with a more modern shoe such as sneakers, and to bet on a rock perfecto-type piece.

The lurex sock:for the holidays

The lurex sock is perfect with pumps, open sandals or heeled ankle boots. Wear it with shorts for a successful effect:skirt, dress or shorts, everything works! This type of sock goes very well with all party outfits, and is also suitable for a winter wedding outfit.

The daisy:for romantics

Nothing like a sock with a daisy print to bring a romantic touch to your outfit. Pair this sock with a flowing, feminine summer dress, preferably in a pastel shade. Shoes that will work well with a daisy sock are patent babies, derbies and jellyfish.

Lace:for the glamorous woman

Lace is, by definition, a material that brings a lot of glam and sexiness to an outfit. Worn over a sock, it turns your ankle into an asset. The lace socks will go very well with a long slit dress, a mini-skirt or even a culotte .

And even the “jewel” sock:for the trendiest

By "jewel sock" we mean those on which embellishments have been sewn:jewels, pearls, rhinestones... Generally, the jewel is on the ankle. This is the trendiest option, but also the trickiest to handle. If you're not an expert, opt for understated combinations:black pumps, understated sneakers, patent leather derbies... Same advice for the outfit, keep a light hand on prints, embroidery and other embellishments.

And the knee-highs? For who ? For what?

Unlike socks that usually stop above the ankles, knee-highs go up to the knees. They can totally pimp up a look, but only if worn under pants:basically it works with rolled up or 7/8 pants. Not to be confused with high socks, which rise above the knee. They are worn with shorts and are a very sexy accessory, so handle them with caution!
