Do you own a pair of sock booties? I certainly hope so because this style is trending in fashion. Sock booties, as you probably know, are boots that have a sock-like material covering your ankles.
If you ask me, Kanye West is responsible for this trend — he first popularized the look with his Yeezy Season 2 collection. Due to his line being super expensive, some creative individuals started making their own sock booties. They would buy a sock, make a hole big enough for the heel to fit in, and then put the sock over the heel. Simple right? This was called the $5 hack.
Here’s the great news: You can now buy affordable sock booties! Due to this style being so popular, it’s available everywhere. I’ve put together some sets to show you how to style sock booties when going to class and a night out.
How to Style Sock Booties – Outfit for Class:
For this look, I decided to style Boohoo’s black sock booties with a popping pink striped sweater. Striped sweaters are so multifaceted and can be dressed up or down. Pairing this funky sweater with sock booties adds a fashion girl touch to the look. (Due to the heel being chunky, it’ll be comfortable to walk around campus in.)
Holographic print is fashionable and flexible with any look. The holographic backpack gives this outfit a nice finishing touch.
How to Style Sock Booties – Outfit for a Night Out:
Whether you’re spending a night out with the girls or going on a date with your significant other, this look is impeccable for both. The red camo midi skirt is my favorite item in this set because it stands out in a crowd. Since the skirt is red, combining it with Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty red lip paint is a great finish.
I love playing with jewelry for a night out. Styling this black and red outfit with gold accessories provides the right color contrast. Adding a cute gold or red purse will match the outfit as well.
