Calling all kindergarteners, er… we meant fashionistas: The fall 2016 runways point to lacy ankle socks as being the go-to sock trend this autumn.
Ankle boots are once again hot, hot, hot, and many designers chose to pair the footwear with ankle socks boasting lacy tops fit for a tea party. But cropped lace socks were also seen paired with pumps, sandals and even flats.
To avoid looking too frilly, stylists suggest balancing out the ultra-girly sock look with menswear inspired pieces or pretty much anything else that doesn’t look like it belongs in an eight-year-old’s closet. But if looking fiercely feminine is your ultimate goal, the sky is the limit when it comes to on-trend legwear.
Check out a few styling examples of frilly ankle socks below for ideas on how you can work the lace sock trend into your wardrobe.
