There is always a slight question mark over whether socks and heels are appropriate, so ITEM m6 are here (along with a little help from Dries Van Noten) to assure you that it’s okay and can also be a very effective and edgy styling statement.
The Dries Van Noten AW 13 collection at New York Fashion Week showcased his stamp of approval on wearing socks with heels (sandals to be exact). Chunky, dark, statement socks were worn with delicate metallic sandals, creating the basis for outfits that battled against each other; whether the battle was the oversized heavy weight jackets against the feminine skirt silhouettes or the androgynous appearance of the models against the copious feathering and oriental prints.
Whatever the reasoning behind this magnificent collection, it has encouraged us at ITEM m6 to encourage YOU to follow the trend and create your own individual „socks with heels“ style.
So be inspired by one of fashion’s most prominent designers and upload your „socks with heels“ looks to the blog, on Instagram or to twitter with the hashtag #ITEMM6DVNINSPIRATION
