You know when your friends teaches you a life hack and find yourself thinking: I wish I would’ve thought of that last year when I spent the entire winter wearing the same pair of boots!
LIFE HACK: PAIR YOUR SOCKS WITH YOUR FAVORITE HEELS THIS WINTER
You don’t have to spend all of Winter in bulky shoes. The shoe fanatics at Traffic Shoe have come up with a bulletproof (been there, done that messed around, I’m having fun) solution to staying stylish during cold months. This post will teach you how the proportion, color, fit, and texture of socks can create new looks with heels.
Have a pair of socks that are screaming for a new pair of heels? How about TWO? With our buy one get one for a dollar special you’re sure to stand out in any winter wonderland.
We’re not just making this up. Various runway shows this year have featured the sock and heel look. Tory Burch’s Fall Ready to Wear collection took a colorful bohemian take on winter. Proenza Schouler’s fall Ready to Wear collection took inspiration from black fish nets and ended with thick tights.
Warm and fuzzy ribbed socks are meant more than evenings spent by a fireplace. Pair earth tones like hunter green and garnet with your favorite neutral or black heels and cut off denim. WARNING! Slouchy socks may put you in danger of looking slouchy. Solution? Wear ankle-baring jeans that show a little skin between the sock and the jean.
Open-toed shoes, leg warmers, and mini skirts are PERFECT for when the weather isn’t too cold. “Leg warmers will change your life”, said 80’s workout videos. We couldn’t agree more. Turn what would typically be an outfit that shows a lot of skin on it’s back by stretching the socks above the knee.
Grab your favorite pair of high platforms and incorporate them to your next casual outfit. Take that Ariana Grande wearing platforms in a UNITARD. Since tights cover more of your body you will want to stay away from loud patterns and prints. Dark solid colored threads are the way to go here.
Embody the spirit of shirley temple and add a playful innocent touch to your statement heels. This works great for colorful heels that you’d typically stay away from during winter. Wear them with a dress that hits at the knee and show people there’s more to winter than wearing black all the time!
