Socks. Yes, socks. Your humble underwear drawer staple. Probably not the part of your outfit you pay much attention to, but that’s all about to change. This often neglected little area of your look has become an all-important A/W accessory, thanks Gucci.

How do you wear them, you ask? With heels, with sliders, with sneakers: anything goes. They’re the most affordable way to step change your look and the trend that’s taking the streets by storm.

Once a fashion faux pas, socks with heels are fast becoming the ultimate update, fashion’s latest infatuation. Don’t believe us? Just keep scrolling to see how good it looks. When it comes to sneakers, trade in your secret socks for statement ones. They also make your entire shoe wardrobe instantly wearable for winter, a transitional season godsend. Yes, you can wear your sandals in winter.

And there’s a sock for every occasion too: sporty for day, sequins for evening. Whether you go for printed, statement, embellished, sheer, fishnet, logo, glitter or ribbed, it’s time to up your sock game.

Athleisure and logomania have made their way all the way down to your ankles, and your socks provide the perfect opportunity to show off a luxury logo or logo-branded athletic sock.

And they’re not gender specific: women are buying their socks from the menswear department and vice versa, so feel free to rummage around your significant others’ sock drawer or in either sock department.

Go on, knock their socks off.
