Is the ‘sock boot’ the biggest trend to look out for this Autumn/Winter?

If you haven’t heard about the term ‘sock boot’ yet and wonder what I’m talking about, think about the comfort of a sock combined with a feminine shape and seductive heels.

I know, it sounds almost too good to be true, but fashion is full of surprises and if it’s trendy, pretty and comfy, I’ll sign up for it!

The ‘sock boot’ is predicted to be the ultimate trend to embrace this coming autumn and winter season.  They can be fun and versatile as they come in various textures and materials such as leather, velvet, satin and PVC and you can choose between midi, knee and thigh-highs.

If you are planning your A/W wardrobe ahead, and looking for fashion inspiration, here is a selection of ‘sock boot’ to step into the new season in true fashionista style.

Let’s talk about fashion designers, these geniuses who create, innovate and shape the way we dress.

‘What they create is greater than art because you live your life in it’ – Nigel, The Devil Wears Prada

As much as I love fashion and looking at models wearing the latest trends on the catwalks, it sometimes amazes me how crazy some designs are and often wonder how on earth would someone pull this off in real life? (I’m sure you feel me here!)

So, to make your life easier, I’ve decided to dig out the best trends for Spring and show you how to take it from catwalk to sidewalk…

  1. Stripes

Statement stripes will be a big deal this season, they were at the core presentations of iconic designers such as Proenza Schouler, Rosie Assoulin, Mulberry and Mary Katrantzou.

Go for bold and colourful patterns to make a statement, +1 if you can pull off a second trend at the same time like off shoulder or ruffles!

2. Sheer fabric

I absolutely love sheer materials and beyond excited to see it widely showcased on the hottest fashion shows.  I mean, how exciting is it to be able to wear see-through outfits outside the bedroom?

Let’s face it, it is a sexy trend but fear not, done the right way, it can be extremely classy and not borderline vulgar!

Take inspiration from leading designers such as Louis Vuitton, Valentino, Alexander McQueen, Balmain and Christian Dior.

3. The bra-top

As seen on Victoria Beckham,  Altazzura and Alexander Wang’s shows, ultra cropped tops will be your best companion for casual spring looks.
