Stop Wearing Boring Socks

Socks are one of the most versatile accessories you can wear, but styling them into an outfit can be tricky. I’ve been investing hours into Pinterest, searching for inspiration beyond abject commercialism when I realized that I am really into socks right now. Seeing Fashionista Editor In Chief Tyler McCall wearing pink Gucci logo socks paired with red pumps while attending Milan Fashion Week affirmed that I am not alone in my sartorial shift. Socks with shoes are happening!

Fortunately for all of us rule-breakers & risk-takers, there isn’t just one way to style socks. Everything from bridal socks, to embellished ankles, and even fruit-printed styles are available, you just need to be bold enough to wear them. I’ve gathered a comprehensive gallery below with examples on how to incorporate socks into nearly every look. Are you ready to accept the challenge?

Browse through the inspiration and shop the galleries below to make a statement this spring. But if we missed something, leave your tried & true style tips in the comments below.
