Socks and Heels: A Beginner's Guide

As someone whose first foray in to the socks-and-heels world was only a few months ago, I’m here to tell you that we’ve really been missing out. Putting aside the fact that the look is undeniably forward and eye-catching, the comfort factor alone would have been reason enough to convert me long ago—had I known. Not only that, but in the colder months (like now) when you’re sick of wearing the same weather-appropriate boots for every night out, the addition of a sparkly sock makes even the most summery sandals winter- (and party-) ready. Still not sold? Or maybe you’re just a bit intimidated? Either way, you’re about to be convinced otherwise, because we’ve put together eight game-changing sock-and-heel combos that will have you onboard in no time.
