Now here’s a trend that’s lasted longer than expected

Wearing socks and heels together evolved into the sock boot – a practical but cool style loved by stars and designers alike. Celebrities like Rihanna and supermodel Jasmine Tookes love these boots and the hottest designers (think Dior and Balenciaga) have shown them of on their runways like Dior.

This week we hit the shops for sock boots:

The everyday sock boot

These boots can fit into your daily wardrobe with ease. Animal print goes with pretty much everything and its always mad stylish. Boots in neutral colours make for amazing formal pieces – imagine one of these with your favourite pencil skirt. Simple sock boots also work well with colourful dresses, shorts and skirts.

These boots are made for walking

The slim and sleek nature of sock boots make them go great with skinny jeans and leggings. Rita Ora is a huge fan of over-the-top outfits and she offsets her wild tops and pants with sensible but cute sock boots.

Comfort is a major key with sock boots – it doesn’t get more comfortable than a boot that imitates a sock. These boots are great from all season and they always make a super style statement.
