The high sock, an essential accessory for winter 2023

It's hard to miss this trend. Long hidden, the sock is now considered a fashion accessory in its own right. Gone are the days when we chose our socks solely for their usefulness and comfort. The ankle socks, invisible socks and other short socks that we tried to hide in our sneakers a few years ago, have given way to visible and assumed knee-highs and high socks. This trend is confirmed on all the catwalks of the fall-winter 2023-2024 shows. This season more than ever, high socks confirm their status as an it accessory.

The ultimate fall-winter accessories, here's how to wear high socks every day.

Dare to combine open shoes and exposed white high socks

For several seasons now, white socks have appeared on the feet of all the fashion influencers who started by wearing them with moccasins for a "schoolgirl" look before wearing them with mules, babies, mid-height uggs or even with ballerinas. This season again, nothing is more trendy than pairing your moccasins with high socks. The white high sock can be worn in any season, including over tights .

Opt for a more discreet version with black high socks

Fans of white socks for several seasons, fashion influencers are turning to darker pairs this fall-winter. Easier to adopt if you don't yet wear visible high socks, black socks go perfectly with black shoes like moccasins. They also allow them to be worn this winter with plain or patterned black tights without making too much of a difference.

Bringing out knee-highs from our closets, with or without tights

After the undisputed reign of exposed white socks, the trend is moving to the next level. Once considered old-fashioned because they were "memory", knee-highs are making a comeback. To wear them every day, you can pair them with a mini-skirt, a mini-dress or mini-shorts, or wear them with a well-cut midi skirt. We combine them with heels, sneakers, moccasins... or slightly over high boots for a more accomplished look. You can wear them bare legs or combine them once again with a pretty pair of tights.
