Sock boots are the unexpected trend of the season. Although on the surface they’re perplexing, the styling possibilities are endless. Viewed from the side, without a foot in them to give some kind of definition, they aren’t the most inspiring shape but, trust us, once on they’re transformative. Where traditional ankle boots don’t always look quite right with kick flare jeans, and knee-high boots don’t work with certain hemlines, sock boots are your saviour. Plus a simple, sleek fit underneath a floatier silhouette is the perfect foil to too much girliness.
