style inspiration: shoes and socks

Image From: We Heart It and ffffound

To be quite frank, shoes and socks remind me of days gone by where girls at school would try their darnedest to rebel against the uniform code. The trend was to either pull them up so high it would transport you straight to the streets of Japan, or wear them so low as if to appear that you weren't wearing any at all. This brief affair with the trend always left me incredibly apprehensive about the idea of shoes and socks as a fashion statement. That was until quite recently, when I found myself continuously stumbling upon beautiful imagery of girls wearing socks with shoes. Lo and behold, I am now a self-confessed shoes and socks convert, and these handful of images should help to inspire you to jump onboard as well.

  1. I like shoes & socks, but sometimes we have to be careful with the mix, it's not always that pretty :)
    BTW love all the shoes, nice choice of pics

  2. I love to mix them too,but thats true,you have to be so careful to chose them well.

  3. YES. I absolutely adore shoes and socks together, so cute! Also thanks so much for your comment on my blog, I really appreciate it!


  4. I love the socks and shoes look because they soften up any look! I love it when the socks add a little oomph to any outfit! Sometimes though, the best way to go is just shoes, no socks!

  5. Thank you very much for your sweet comment:)

    Even though I would probably never dare to wear, socks and shoes look so feminine and cute!

  6. Third from the top are my fav, the socks are so feminine they really compliment the shoes. And second from the top is a good look too. I've thought about this look before and really like it, although not sure I'd be able to pull it off in real life.

  7. I so love Shoes & Socks together!! They are so ultra-feminine and the pictures you've selected are awesome and serve as great inspiration. I've only gotten to do this twice so far but I'm hoping to keep on daring to do it more often (as long as it isn't too hot!).
