Come Fall (Winter) and everyone’s busy pulling out their knitwear from the closet and investing in boots. Boots are an ultimate favourite street style shoe trend. And this season it isn’t any different. Just in case you’ve been Insta-stalking lately (like us), you may have come across fashion bloggers and celebrities sporting this one shoe trend — ‘sock boots’. We at WODROB decided to decode this trend for you and give you a few tips on how to style it.
What are sock boots?
Sock boots are basically a pair of boots with an extended sock fabric attached to it. The silhouette is such that they cling to your lower calves and fit like a sock, hence the name. They make a great alternative to Ugg boots since they keep one’s feet warm and also look quite edgy.
How to style it?
Take a cue from supermodel Kendall Jenner on how to pull off a classic French girl look with a pair of ankle-length sock boots. Try and keep the look monochrome with a printed dress, a beret as well as a structured bag. Layer the dress with an overcoat or an off-the-shoulder sweater like Ms. Jenner has. You can also inject a pop of colour into your outfit with your boots.
Another look you can try is a casual one. Keep it simple with a pair of skinny jeans and a statement knit top. Go for a pastel look but team it up with muted sock boots. You can also try colour blocking by opting for a contrasting pair of boots to complement your outfit. A midi-length, jewel-toned dress and a pair of sock boots make for an elegant outfit. Accessorise with minimal jewellery to complete this look.
