Quirky styling in the fashion world is nothing new. They come and go, often before we can finish comprehending them, but one that has stuck around this year is socks-and-dress combo. This season is all about chic shoes that look even more stylish when paired with socks! Garish or luxuriously lacy, the combination is just right for every day life and the cooler season that is currently upon us! There can be a number of reasons to rock this socks-and-dress combo (with heels!) — style is one, and comfort, another. It’s no secret that heels aren’t always the most comfortable choice for our feet and sometimes, a pair of socks can help!
Kendall Jenner recently rocked this look at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival when she attended the premiere of ‘120 Beats Per Minute’ in the French City. Kendall’s look was delightfully breezy in a loose-fitting, floor-length dress with billowing fabric and a one-shoulder sleeve. Cinched at the waist, the dress featured a monochromatic floral print set on white. It left us longing for spring!
Kendall’s accessories were understated — a statement ring and matching pair of earrings. Though, she had a pair of pop socks on, under her strappy heels! They brought the attention away from her legs and down to her gorgeous stilettos. It’s a look we love!

Ariana Grande is one of the most known celebrities for rocking this look time and time again. Her unique style maintains its versatility throughout the years and it’s one we adore seeing. Ariana recently rocked a pair of thigh-high socks with an all-white dress on the red carpet. With a flared mini hemline, three-quarter sleeves and a black pair of heels, the addition of her socks made the entire look one not to be forgotten! She added her own touch to the look with minimal accessories and a bold, dark plum lip. With her hair let down, her look emulated youthfulness.
