Sequin socks… or ‘love at first sight’ for this blogger! I saw these on Instagram last autumn, and was determined to track them down. They’re made by the very edgy new label Off-White, whose work I love, but don’t have much occasion to wear…. except for the sequin socks! Those I can easily work into my wardrobe.
London was grey and cool for about a week, so I thought what better way to brighten up a dull day than to wear these sparkling socks with an all black outfit. Then what happens? The sun comes out, the day turns absolutely glorious, and I look like I’m a little confused about whether I’m going to a funeral or a disco. How dare the sun ruin my outfit plans! When it is grey and dreary (or evening), you don’t notice my chalky white legs so much, but on a bright day, they stand out and make the dress seem shorter than I’d like. Anyway, too late to change now, so here we go. Sequin socks and heeled sandals, people.
I wore these wondrous sequin socks with a pair of sandals that I’ve had for a while, but have avoided wearing because they were uncomfortable. The socks made them feel much better, surprisingly. I’m also wearing a Barbara Bui satin trench, which I have always called my spy coat, (seen in winter here) and a Winser London shift dress (seen before here).
I am so enamoured with the socks that the following day (back to grey and chilly) I wore them AGAIN. I styled them a little differently though. I wore them with my silver sequin skirt (which has been on the blog countless times) and a slouchy tuxedo blazer. I also decided to cut long lengths of black satin ribbon to tie around the ankle, so the sandals look a bit more like the ones Off-White shows with the socks. Look at me, all DIY!
If you need twinkling toes like I need twinkling toes, you can shop these silver sequins socks below. The ‘sole’ of the socks is thin black cotton, so they’ll work with some closed-toe shoes as well (I’m thinking they’ll be amazing with a block-heeled, Gucci-style loafer). I’m curious to see what you think of these. Like them, love them, or hate them?
