If I’ve noticed anything about the spring runways, it’s that I have to get me a good pair of socks.
Normally relegated to hiding under boots or as workout gear, socks are going to be seeing a resurgence this spring. Wear them scrunchy and paired with strappy heels, like at Burberry Prorsum, or knee high and nude to update last year’s ankle boot, like at Alexander Wang.
An easy way to do socks is ankle length mixed in with spring’s pretty pastels and a peep-toe heel, like at Marni.
We Love Colors offers a range of nude colored ankle socks in a comfortable and just thin-enough jersey fabric. Scrunch them and wear with your favorite strappy heels to get the Burberry Prorsum effect.
My favorite legwear discovery came from the most unlikely of places. The Futuro unisex stocking came in very drugstore looking packaging and had the words “therapeutic” and “compression” all over it. It took me a while to even open the box, but when I did, look at what I found:
My version of the Alexander Wang toe-less cut-out sock. With the added benefit of graduated compression to address aching legs (from walking in 4-inch-plus heels all day, of course).
The perfect spring sock and a massage with every step I take? Can’t wait for spring.
