You've Already Got What It Takes to Nail This Supereasy Styling Hack
For years, we've kept our socks hidden, opting for supershort lengths, sneaking them under boots, and even ditching them altogether. But after watching a few episodes of the hit show Scream Queens, we've started to reconsider — socks can actually be pretty cute. Showing them off adds flair to outfits — simple, elevated, or otherwise — in a fun and feminine way.
So whether you rock something sheer, go with a knit, or just repurpose the classic black and white pairs, here are nine reasons you should say goodbye to bare ankles and welcome socks back into your life.
