Leave it to Rihanna to make the unconventional union of heels and socks a stylish statement for spring. Making a strong case for the season’s sheer socks trend, the singer is set to unveil her third collection with cult sock brand Stance tomorrow. The lineup includes a variety of silky, sheer, over-the-knee and gauzy ankle socks embellished with bows and the number 8—a tribute to her eighth studio album Anti. Meanwhile, as seen in the behind-the-scenes video of the campaign above, varsity stripes add a feel of athleisure to the cheeky pastel styles.
Take a style cue from the runways and sport vivid, knee-high, sheer patterned socks paired with open-toe heels as seen at Dries Van Noten, or transparent ankle socks featuring floral motifs teamed with platform sandals like those from Anna Sui. Put your fashion foot forward and master the sheer socks trend this spring.
