Ankle Socks in Winter? Yep, You Heard Right

Summer called dibs on sheer bobby socks with heels; fall had that whole normcore socks ‘n’ sandals thing down to a T. Now winter wants a piece of the action. Wear your smartest set at the office this season with sleek loafers or sporty sneakers — Band of Outsiders, Mark Fast and Suno all put their best foot forward.

If you’re opting for a heel, pull up your socks to just above your boots (see Dries Van Noten) or try a colorblocked pair with pumps like Consuelo Castiglioni did at Marni. Granted, your legs may feel a bit drafty, so it’s best to wear this winter trend with caution. Go for longer dresses, trousers that hit just above the ankle and oversized overcoats to compensate. Then, sock it to ’em.
