What does everyone think of the pairing of socks and heels?
In general, I’ve always felt that, if you’re past a certain age, ankle socks really belong under trousers. Sure, the very young, and very trendy can often get away with them – and even look good in them – but on the rest of us? We’re going to look like overgrown toddlers, aren’t we? Sad, but true.
Sophie Ellis-Bextor, however, clearly disagrees: she wore the outfit above to a Samsung TV party in London this week, and chose to pair her ankle socks with white button-front Mary Janes: a style of shoe which can, in itself, be a little bit infantilizing if you’re not careful how you wear it.
What do you think of this look? Would you wear ankle socks with heels?
