KEEP YOUR EYES SCANNING AT CONCRETE LEVEL, THE STREETS ARE ON HIGH SOCK AND HEEL WATCH. SPRING IS EMBRACING THE MOVEMENT TO ELEVATE SOME NOVELTY INTO THE SOCK HEELED FIXATION.
Accessories are doubling up around the ankles and a heel no longer has to march alone. Spring/Summer 2016 runway cues saw sheer ankle socks match up with classic black pumps at Dolce & Gabbana to strike a booty illusion. Versace matched the platform with a sheer ankle sock to ease up the rigidity of the collection’s military walk. Prints popped on Dries Van Noten’s stockings and sandals to affirm the season’s foot fixation. Black legged lace at Rodarte, elevated the peep toe with a gold strapped heel. Mary Katrantzou spun another view, her ribbed and metallic stockings were cut out at the toe. The clever designer took the trend to the next level, socks that slipped on top of the heel to wrap around the sole.
The street watch is on for socks in heels paired with cropped ankle culottes, wide leg is where the pendulum swings. Denim will always have a laid back place with socks and a platform. The streets won’t resist the classic pump mixed with a metallic sock. The emphasis on this look is all about more. Extra embellishments make heels go chunky in knit, spaghetti thin and candy colored straps, while metallic and pastel socks play up muted colors, to any kind of elaborately printed mix on top. You’ll give in to the urge to play up all heights of heel; the novelty sock formerly worn tucked in comes out to play for the season’s high socked fixture.
