sweet feet

(It really annoys me that my cuffs are uneven in the first photo)

I’ve been trying to come up with different ways of styling these frilly socks, but it’s proving to be a tad difficult. I’ve only been wearing them with jeans because it’s currently too cold to wear them with skirts/shorts/bare legs. I’m yet to try the socks over stockings look, but that could be a possible solution? They also don’t seem to go with a lot of the shoes I own. Brogues would be perfect but would you believe I still don’t own a pair? Crazy, I know. Any styling suggestions would be most welcome!

    Cuuuute! Could you wear them with skin, opaque coloured tights, so it just looks like you're wearing them with bare legs?

    Hooray for frilly socks! I bought a pair too this past weekend but I'm afraid I don't have any styling tips as I am yet to work out how to wear them myself…

    I saw a girl wearing socks over tights over the weekend and also a little while before that.
    I think a rose/peach/pastel colour would suit?

    Otherwise I really don't know…

    I'm in love with the socks! I saw once on a fashion site a girl wearing opaque grey tights (or perhaps thigh highs) and some frilly socks with a pair of black pumps. It looked way cooler than that description I think…

    Cute shoes! Those socks remind me of my primary school days! I think your doing fine with styling filly socks, try ribbon pants, those socks and platform sandals

    ohh, you really should wear them with tights, that's what i do. i especially think they look rather cute with polka dot tights. i totally know what your going through, i have a pair of primark black brogues, but they just don't seem brogue-y (haha) enough, so i have been searching for my perfect pair for months with no such luck! your socks look lovely with the jeans, by the way. and i love the fabric you have put down on the floor!

    love, jazzabelle. xxx

    They are such cute socks – they remind me of the kind I used to wear when I was younger. I love the way you have worn them in this post – shoes + jeans……….. perfect!! I saw in a magazine these kind of socks over tights, ribbed ones though, woolen, not opaque. Not great for summer i know but it looked really great – the frills in the socks and the vertical ribbing of the tights.

    I adore adore adore those frilly socks!!! I wish they were in a cream shade though, I prefer not so white socks… but you're making them work with those heels! Yay cuffed jeans, woo 🙂 Yes, do the socks over the tights look, definitely a possible solution!!! Yes, you absolutely NEED a pair of brogues, trust me! Go thrifting or even on etsy 🙂

    As they're white, they'll pretty much go with any colour tights, so go for it! Just make sure that there's some white in your outfit too (:

    Those socks are darling! And you're working them with those mary janes.

    Try them with skin coloured leggings or knee high socks maybe?

    was just thinking 'i wear them with my brogues'…then read that you dont any brogues. they look very cute the way you have them. I normally wear them with brogues and bare legs. never tried them with turned up jeans!
