We're not quite ready to dig out the sandals, but we're so done with boots. The perfect in-between? Socks on show. Bear with us; okay so there was a time when wearing sandals with socks was something we left to our weird Uncle and only him - much to our embarrassment - but socks are making a comeback. You don't necessarily have to wear socks with open-toed shoes, but having them on show, instead of hiding them under your jeans or trainers is no longer necessary, provided they match of course.
Socks that make a statement are both fun and practical AND you'll no longer find yourself running out the door only to add some last minute Sally Hansen to your ankles. Behold, how to wear socks like a boss.
These ones are perfect with cropped trousers or jeans and a pair of white Adidas Originals. The stripes at a sports-luxe edge. Five quid, Topshop.
A little velvet trim gives you two trends for the price of one. These frills deserve to be seen. Wear them on a night out with black lace-up flats and revel in the comfort. Cute with dungarees. Also a fiver, Topshop.
A pair of cropped glitter ankle socks are the dream; it's the most subtle hint of style you could go for. For these, go brave with a coloured, closed-toed sandal or pump. A shocking pink would be really funky. And your feet won't freeze in this crazy in-between weather. Five euro, Topshop. Or keep the shoe black but brave the sandal.
