Every season, there’s that one thing you end up wearing every single day. This summer, it was the $1 bandana. Last season, it was the turtleneck. Before that, it was the white sneaker, and statement earring and necklace. This season, we’re hedging our bets that it’s going to be the sparkly, lurex sock — it’s been on the runways before at No. 21, Rodarte, and Saint Laurent. But it wasn’t until we saw it in rainbow variations during Antonio Marras’ spring 2016 line that we were moved to place a bulk order.
They dressed down everything from ankle-strap platforms and strappy pumps to low-top sneakers and shower slides. It’s fairly neutral in color, which means that you’ll be able to integrate the sock no matter what kind of color story your outfit is telling. But that twinkle will give your look that fashion-forward bite that a statement necklace or arm party used to.
The cost of admittance to one of the strongest trends to round out 2016? Around $10, depending on where you’re shopping. Urban Outfitters
has a yellow-gold one for $12, or you can look to Topshop
for a pair that’s more similar to Marras’ roll-top sock.
