It’s Warm. It’s Cool.

You love your platform sandals.

You’ve patiently awaited ankle boot season.

You’re not ready to give up your bare legs.

You think you’re in a bind.

Well let me tell you, Friend, there’s a whole world out there for you just waiting to be explored. It’s called the socks-with-sandals world. With a little bit of ankle boot action mixed in there for good measure. We’re not talking about your granola wooly socks and worn-in Birkenstocks.

Oh no. OH, NO we’re not.

Socks with platform tie-up booties AND a decadent arm party? That’s got to be The Man Repeller.

Black, brown, grey. We love it. Plus she looks like she could probably kick our….Fancy Pants.

Peak-a-Boo sock with midi-dress. Very cool. The Sartorialist.

High waisted shorts and black socks. Love a good black sock. FashionToast.

OOOoooooh. Chunky oatmeal socks with black leggings. Delicious! Elizabeth & Catherine.

Ahhh yes, with the brogue. The chicest type of preppy. Tabio.

This is a great example of juxtaposing hard with soft – vintage military jacket, ivory lace dress, denim platforms and stark white ankle socks and a cool matte Merlot lipstick. Approved. The Sartorialist.



We fell in love with this girl the minute we spotted her on The Sartorialist. The black ankle socks and sandals! The oversized cable knit tennis cardigan! The copper silk blouse buttoned to the collar. And of course, the top knot.
