I have a sixth sense when it comes to upcoming fashion trends, the only caveat is I can only predict the super ugly ones. Dying and penciling in your eyebrows like pre-makeover Mia Thermopolis, over lining your lips so you look like the mom on A Cinderella Story, the rebirth of Juicy Couture track suits, VELVET etc.. you get it, I was there. So now I’m going to need you to forget everything you have ever learned about socks and sandals coexisting in peace. The trend will no longer be reserved for college environmental science professors with long, thin, low (and somehow) balding ponytails. I feel this in my soul.
I might feel it because I want it so bad though. Open toe with a seven week old, hanging on for dear life, pedicure? Entirely possible now. Do you have terrible blood circulation that makes your feet feel like that of a corpse? NO PROBLEM, because you get to wear socks and not look like Ms. Geist. This trend is really going to hinge on the whole rest of your outfit. You gotta be a little bougie to pull this all the way off. Don’t get me wrong, you can do cuffed jeans and still rock it, but if you want to really sell it wear a dress or a skirt. I have done both of these for you today. So get on out there and serve this look. In Ohio we would have about 7 minutes to wear this trend because the crisp perfect fall air gets pummeled over by under 40 degree temperatures dying to make themselves present, but it was 80 degrees today so who knows.
One thing I did not do was just basic slides with socks, which will be the coolest option because you can wear leggings and sweatpants. My given christian middle name is Shelby but I really think it should be “sweatpants”.
This is jeans and sandals. This outfit is not bangin, I know this, but I had about 4 seconds to throw it together between helping my mom take family pictures of 7 people, 5 of which were wild (cute) children.
This is the bougie version.
Either way you choose, you’re going to want to try this. Not only does it look better than expected, it feels great to have just your feet covered.
Here are my sock choices:
Fishnet Socks $12
Really any type of sock would do….EXCEPT any height past crew. Knee high socks with any outfit will make you look like a blind Sunday school teacher.
Here are some shoe picks via DSW:
Blue Chunky Heel $95
Ritz Pumps $25
I really really want to put some Christian Louboutins on this list but I cant even begin to pretend I can afford those. BUT. If YOU can afford those, I suggest using THESE.
Being bougie on a budget really sucks, I want to live vicarously through those who can afford Christian (Louboutin)(Sirianio).
Now dont get it twisted, I could be VERY wrong (and my mom hopes I am) but I really do see this happening. WINTER IS COMING so stock your closet. Dont say I didnt warn you. Also I’ve never seen GOT so I dont even know what winter is coming means.
The sock links ARE affiliate links, if you buy something from them I will get a small commission at no extra cost. I am legally obligated to tell you that in case you hate me and don’t want to contribute to my success.
…..also I photoshopped my legs. They had a lot of marks on them because I was wearing three pairs of pants because the law school heating system is STILL broken.
Pin and share if you’re feeling it! Or if you think I’m crazy! (I really dont care either way)
