The socks and heels look : Sogie × Salmah

Double Dose

Remember back in the day when your outfit wasn’t complete without your frilly looking socks and shoes to go, omg we literally wore socks with everything; well if you didn’t i know i did. Then we started school and had to wear white socks everyday and i’m sure that’s where the love for socks died.
Like everything else in fashion (or vampire diaries) it didn’t stay dead instead it was reinvented.

The socks and heels trend has been around for a while, fashionistas have slayed and killed it some have even started it’s burial again, while some like me haven’t given it a second thought; well until today.

One of the reasons i love blogging has to be the virtual connections i make, the blogoshpere is a very supportive community filled with the best people like Salmah.
Salmah blogs at Totaldramaqueen.com and this collaboration has been a long time coming.
Salmah and I decided to tackle the socks and heels trend for this collaboration and we went in opposite directions lol,  i interpreted it as the socks with heels she went for the yeezy look (socks over heels); and this just shows how much the trend has upgraded.

The initial plan was to wear a dress but last minute i decided to go with this look; paired the black blazer , black top with a plaid skirt.
Being my first time trying out the sock and heels look, i decided keep it minimal by sticking with a black long socks that i bunched up.

I’ve definitely worn this cap more than the owner (dad) and i can certainly call it my own now, i’m not a huge jewellery person hence why you barely see me on earrings or really loud pieces, i mainly stick to chokers or chains like the one i have on right now.

On the other hand Salmah went with the socks over heels look and you can see the details and entire look here.

    I've been seeing this trend but i haven't had the courage to try it out yet. You pulled it off so well, i also like that you styled it with plaid.
