When it comes to picking out your outfit in the morning, apart from your mood, your shoes are a good place to start from. It really only takes a really awesome on trend pair of shoes to update an entire look, and make it feel fresh & new. Sock booties are one of this season's biggest footwear trends, especially the pointy-toe just-above-your-ankle version. And while it may take some time to get used to walking in them (they tend to be quite stretchy and feel a bit 'lighter' than regular heels), it's definitely worth it, because they're easily one of the most flattering shoe styles out there, especially if you embrace these 3 tips to wear them to death this Fall!
1 / GO MAXI
The thing with sock booties is that it can be a bit tricky to pair them with cosy pieces that do not fully cover up their main asset: the fact that they hug and accentuate your ankles. If you pair them with oversized wide-legged trousers you might as well be wearing regular pointy boots - such a shame! So if you want to go maxi (and you do, because it's gettin' chilly outside) but still show off your ankles, an ankle-length dress is just perfect, and a nice change from the pants-on-repeat situation that's so typical for colder days.
2 / PRINTS & A PEEK OF SKIN
Worried about said maxi dress to appear too bulky? Make sure to go with a piece that's made from a flowy fabric that has the ability to show a sliver of skin when you're moving around. Further, a fun print with a neutral base colour (such as this gorgeous creamy white one that I picked up at Enes) will always look less overpowering than a monochrome shade, and thumbs up if it has a V-shaped neckline to open up the outfit.
3 / POPPY POPS OF COLOUR
Every heeled pointy-toe bootie can come off a bit preppy & stern, and the same is true for sock booties. Adding a bit of fun by means of a poppy blue manicure or mustard triangle bag is a nice way to keep things playful, making this look equally suitable for a professional meeting as for a fun night out with the besties.
How do you feel about sock booties? Are you ready to embrace them this Fall? :)
