The sock, the new trendy fashion accessory
Exposed socks are definitely popular with designers and influencers. But where does this new trend come from?

We know that following trends can quickly become expensive, but a pair of socks is only a very reasonable budget, so have fun! Worn with pumps they wake up our punk side, in a pair of derbies they give us a pretty British touch, glittery 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 spends the seasons without aging, 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, black slim jeans with cuff and white dad shoes for example.
The polka dot sock: for vintage
The polka dot motif is really one of our favorites. It works perfectly on all clothes, and the sock is of course no exception ! To wear the polka dot sock well, you have several options. Either you opt for a truly 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, you choose a transparent sock, in tights, let’s say, with black polka dots. This type of polka dot socks is more feminine, and will work well with a slightly more dressy look like a midi length dress or skirt. Wear them with pumps or open heeled sandals.
The ruffled sock: for the babydoll
The ruffled sock is definitely the cutest option. It is reminiscent of our mothers’ Sunday outfits, and brings a delicious note of freshness to an outfit. Our advice to wear it well: avoid the total nostalgic look! On the contrary, it is better to offset the ruffled sock with a more modern shoe like sneakers, and to bet on a perfecto rock piece.
The lurex sock: for the holidays
The lurex sock is perfect with pumps, open sandals or heeled ankle boots. Wear it with short 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. Combine this sock with a fluid and feminine summer dress, preferably in a pastel shade. The 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 sexy to an outfit. Worn on a sock, it turns your ankle into an asset. The lace socks will go very well with a long slit leg dress, a mini skirt or even a culottes .
And even the “jewel” sock: for the most fashionable
By “jewel sock” we mean those on which embellishments have been sewn: precious stones, pearls, rhinestones… Generally, the jewel is on the ankle. It is the most trendy option, but also the most delicate to handle. If you are not an expert, favor sober combinations: black pumps, sober sneakers, varnished derbies … Same advice for the outfit, keep your hand light on prints, embroidery and other embellishments. And the knee-highs? For who ? Why ? Unlike the socks that usually stop above the ankles, the knee-highs go up to the knees. They can quite pimp a look, but only if they are worn under pants: basically it works with rolled up or 7 / 8th pants. Not to be confused with high socks, which rise above the knee. They are worn with the court and are a very sexy accessory, to handle with caution therefore!
