How To Wear Socks With Heels

Socks with heels. It’s a thing – and we love it.

Another cute accessory that you can mix and match with all of your heels and add some spice to your outfit! So how DO you wear socks with heels?

Start with solid color pairings because adding patterns and print is next level because then you need to put more thought into how the prints work with your entire outfit. Solid colors are relatively easier, and we suggest color pairings like in our featured image from whowhatwear.com – with a pair of bright white wedge heels and burgundy socks. The rest of the outfit is laid-back, casual chic and the socks add color to the bottom half of the outfit, balancing out the look.

Add Some Color

Feel a little daring and want to try bright socks? We love this funky look as seen at the recent fashion week. When wearing bright red socks, make sure the rest of the outfit is just as fashion forward. This fashionista clearly did a great job pairing her red socks with pointed heels, a tartan flared skirt, print tee and navy military outer.

Pattern and Color Mix and Match

Top notch fashionistas can tackle mixing pattern and color. Polka dots or small print on darker shades are easier to mix with color heels as in the picture below – we love the retro vibe and the mustard yellow heels!

How to Wear Color – Lessons from J.Crew’s Holiday Catalog

J.Crew Holiday Catalog – Mix red and green.

J.Crew Holiday Catalog – mix green and orange.

We came across the J.Crew’s holiday catalog on this Refinery29 article and thought “Awesome!┬áThis would be perfect to use as pointers to show our readers how to wear colour!”

Our #onetipwonder for the day? Don’t be afraid to be bright and bold because it just works! We love how the J.Crew holiday catalog worked colours like orange and green together, and primary colors like red and green in one outfit (brilliant for Christmas!).

They say the golden rule on how to wear colour is to not go beyond 3 colours in one outfit – we do agree to a certain extent – especially for those of you starting out experimenting with color. Like our motto, we believe in what works for you and not what’s in trending, so as long as you are confident in pulling off the outfit, go ahead! Try it! Wear it with a smile on your face!

Happy colour mixing!

Our favorite picks from their Pre-Fall 2015 collection would be the graphic, cozy, blanket coats that continue to shine from Winter 2014 through to Pre-Fall 2015. Take your pick of the neutral tones of blue and grey or earthy tones in shades of green and brown. If we had our choice, we would take both!
