How to wear sock boots

Every few months a trend comes along and becomes completely ubiquitous – it’s all over the catwalks, in every magazine and ruling the high street. Last season, it was ruffles, deconstructed shirting and pool slides. For autumn, we already have a winner: the sock boot. Designed with a sock-like fit, the boots became a cult hit likewise it was an instant street style favourite, and celebrities quickly followed suit. There is something about the combination of the stretchy sock material and the sturdy chic.

If you are going to try out a thigh-high pair, make sure your skirt or dress covers the tops, as that flash of thigh can be deeply unforgiving. The ankle sock boots are far more wearable, and look great with everything from office-appropriate pencil skirts to jeans and a t-shirt.
For those chilled out days you sometimes wanna be dressed a little more casual and the jean-and-shoe combination is a staple in every girl’s outfit rotation. So I added some attitude to my cropped, flared dark-wash denim with the velvet sock boots. This refreshingly cool look will take you from desk to drinks in the utmost style.  You can wear over this look a super cozy coat or scarf and it will look surprisingly polished, and can sort of serve a practical purpose. How do you find sock boots?

Wish you all a nice week and stay warm:)
