We don’t need to tell you that socks + heels is a tricky combo to pull off, but with the chill setting in and the trend appearing on many an Autumn / Winter 2011 catwalk from Dolce & Gabbana and Vivienne Westwood, it’s time to embrace the look, like now. So praise be but the lovely ladies in Grazia Fashion who aren't afraid of showing us how it’s done.
In fact, they've tackled the trend with aplomb, following in the footsteps of Marina Diamandis, Laura Bailey and Sunday Girl Jade Williams by modernising their outfits with a quirky addition. From chunky socks with a girlie dress to a lacy pair with court shoes, we've got our resident style gurus to show you how it's done with a brilliant video masterclass. So what are the rules? ‘Chunky heels are the easiest way to start and clashing prints and colours are the way to go,’ says fashion editor Sophie Ferguson Jones. And what should we be avoiding? ‘Knee high socks are not allowed unless you’re Taylor Momsen.’ So now there's no excuse for a naughty fashion faux pas, okay ladies?
