This is the sorta trend that’ll fit into your shoe-drobe like a glove. You’ve seen them on the catwalks, on your Insta feed, and we know they’ll look perf’ on you. This is how to wear sock boots, and slay while you’re at it.

How to Wear Sock Boots

Got that fire shoe-drobe ready, but still not sure how to wear sock boots? We’ve been Insta-stalking our fave bloggers to find the sassiest ways to style our fave new season trend. Whether your style’s casj cute or glam to go, we’ve got the style to suit.

Give ’em the Slip

It was one of our fave summer trends, and we’re bringing it into the lower temps layered over a simple polo neck jumper, but the slip dress ain’t showing signs of going anywhere soon: wardrobe, you’ve been warned. Sock fit boots look perf’ paired with a nineties-inspired slip dress because the look lends itself to a streamlined silhouette, with no angles or odd curves. Nineties supermodel just got hella twenty-first century sleek.

Layer it on Thick

It’s no surprise that we’re feelin’ the cold, as things are seriously starting to get icy. The best way to combat it? Layers. We know this is a years old technique, but layering up your clothing is the sassiest way to keep things lookin’ fire when the temperature drops, and it’s one of the best ways of stylin’ sock boots. As things are gonna get a lil bit bulky on top (yeah, we’re feeling puffer jackets too, we’re going all out), you wanna keep it slim where possible. This is where sock boots come in. As they’re form fitting, sock boots are the perf’ remedy to an otherwise OTT silhouette.

Sleek Chic

The perf’ day-to-night look. A unitard is a wardrobe multi-tasker that’ll work just as hard as you do. With its clean lines and simple shape, it’s one of our fave ways to style sock boots. We’re also obsessed with how Ashlee’s styled her jersey unitard with velvet shoes, for that lil added texture to an otherwise simple outfit. Just add an oversized jacket – we’re feelin’ denim or puffer – and you’re good to slay.

No Sweat(er Dress)

Steezy stylin’, done the sassy way. If you’re wondering how to wear sock boots for a lazy day, we’re totally feeling the Sunday vibes from this simple sweater dress and leather bomber jacket look. Taking this slouchy ootd from weekend to the club in one simple step, the sock boots mean this outfit is one you wanna take out, rather than keep at home. If you are feelin’ something completely casj, swap out the leather jacket for a bomber.

Sock it to Us

You said you wanted a sock boot, and we totally came through. We’re obsessed with this literal sock boot, made from a super soft jersey that mimics the retro sports socks you’re likely to find in your old PE kit, but 100x cooler. Wondering how to wear ankle boots in the girliest way possible? Up the preppy vibes in an A line skirt with a button down front. To keep things casj, tuck in a colourblock sweatshirt, or dress things up with a long sleeved pie crust neckline blouse.

Stacked heel? Check. Cut outs? Got it, ironically, covered. These sock fit ankle boots are the must-have go-to pair for anyone who wants to tick off a lot of trends. Fast. These are the sort of ankle boots that’ll take any ootd to the next level. We’re loving this Fashion Week-inspired look that features a lightweight striped midi dress layered beneath an oversized bubble texture leather jacket with biker zip detailing. Simply grab your charged iPhone 7 and a photographer, and you’ll have the street style look nailed.
