Fab Or Faux Pas: The Socks And Heels Trend

When models pranced down the runways of the Spring 2010 fashion shows, sporting socks with high heels and flats, we hoped the trend wouldn’t stick, but slowly it seems to have infiltrated the ankles of who’s who in Hollywood.  At The Kid’s Choice Awards earlier this year, Rihanna walked down the red carpet, rocking a shimmery Christian Dior dress, with matching ankle socks from the same collection (yes, Rihanna wears Christian Dior socks!) peeking out of her Brian Atwood heels.

Kelly Osbourne has sported the trend on several occasions, most recently while at the Coachella Music Festival, wearing bright-white ankle socks with black wedge sandals.  Though the look can be awkward for us normal folk, take it from fashionista Alexa Chung, who opted for grey ankle socks instead of white, while out and about in NYC.
