#MondayMotivation: Are socks the new sunglasses?


Raise your hand if you were one of those “unfortunate” kids back in the '90s whose mom thought it was sweet to send them to playschool in sandals and socks.

She probably swooned at you, her baby girl, who in her eyes looked so adorable and she probably had every practical reason against the cold to dress you in that way; whatever her reasons, she was definitely onto something…

For the greater part of my life the only socks I owned were the white-ribbed kind synonymous to every school child (thankfully this has changed), and now I can’t get enough of shamelessly wearing socks with all my shoes!

Get ready to raise your sock game to the next level in these:

Want to resurrect your long lost sock and sandal look without stretching your shoes? Try sheer socks that don’t take up too much space but still gives your look an edge.

Socks and heels you ask? This combination has not only been getting nods and the thumbs up on the streets but luxury brands like Gucci are in on it too.

Yes, your white sports branded socks don’t only belong in your sneakers but also in your heels!

Shop these Fenty socks for R299 at Spree.

And fishnet’s are back - in all forms!
