There is really no easier way to convince a pair of pumps that they are actually a pair of cute booties than wearing them with socks. Remember the Alexander McQueen sock sandals? This is NOT about wearing your stripey knee socks under a pair of 5-inch patent leather Pleaser Mary Janes. Or lace edged socks with heels and a school girl skirt, for that matter. In fact, done correctly, this look should not cause anyone at all to slip a dollar bill into your panties. I love the sheer black socks Elie Saab is using in these pictures- if you’ve got a serger handy, it’s also a great second life for a pair of stockings with a rip in them!
