Been wondering how to wear all those soft neutral toned skirts and cropped trousers this season? What to do with your legs during the brrrr months is always a dilemma, black tights are practical but also ugly with pretty pastels and it’s simply too cold to go bare legged. Or is it? See our three step guide that will make the humble sock your style saviour this winter…
Show just the right amount of leg
Opt for midi- length skater or pleated skirts in heavier fabrics such as wool or leather. When you team this length with a black ankle sock you’ll be left with a mere three or four inches of exposed leg, but more importantly, a neat and youthful edge to a ladylike look.
Team with a school shoe
It’s time to go back to school and wear your latest hit accessory (the ankle sock, in case you’re not paying attention!) with a brogue or loafer – the flat shoe du jour.
The perfect pairing
Carefully consider your top half – team a skirt with a chunky knit and cropped trousers with a tucked-in shirt. Get these around the wrong way and you’ll look like you’ve stepped back in time to the sixth grade.
That’s the end of our sock masterclass, now it’s time to put everything you’ve learnt into practice. School’s out!
