First we had guyliner, then brosiery… and now Mankles. The guys, it seems, can’t stop stealing our style, and now they’ve got in on the ankle socks trend too! There have been a lot of cropped trousers with bare ankles going on, but we much prefer a flash of colour peeking out – it doesn’t have to look like John Travolta’s jiving outfit in Grease, either. Just look at all round trendy guy Tinie Tempah, sporting a sunshine yellow pair of ankle socks under a brown and khaki heritage inspired look.
The ankle socks look is easy to work for guys and girls alike. For socks in a great range of colours, girls should check out Falke Socks, which are high quality and come in a gorgeous range of pastel shades. Or for something brighter like Tinie the Trasparenze Monique Ankle Socks come in colour pop brights. Alternatively try patterned ankle highs like those from Pamela Mann or Pretty Polly which will look super sweet with sandals.
Guys should take a look at the collection of Burlington Cotton Socks which come in a traditional argyle design in bright colours like lime green, navy and red. Cotton socks like these are ideal in the summer as they will let your feet breathe, but in the winter we suggest switching to wool socks which will keep your feet toasty warm and cosy, in a darker colour for a subtler take on the look. Try grey socks with black trousers or navy with grey. Or if you’re treating him, cashmere socks like the Falke Lhasa Casual Rib Men’s Socks are a great gift idea. These luxury socks are wear resistant but super soft, too.
A really quick and easy way to update your outfit, socks are inexpensive, easy to wear and come in a ton of different styles, so you can match them to your mood!
