Ankle Socks – only for the young and hip?

leave a comment »


Six pairs have been purchased. 2 grey pairs (light & dark shades), 1 khaki, 1 cream, 1 beige and my pride and joy, a crocheted peach pair from Hobbs. I have a selection of brogues, loafers and chunky heels to wear them with. So why can’t I actually bring myself to wear them yet??

I am of course, not talking about wearing them hidden  under a pair of jeans. I mean slouched with one of my million mini dresses and an oversized men’s jumper or blazer.  Oooo in fact, maybe even with my caramel city shorts.

But as I approach the last 6 weeks of my twenties I can’t help wondering if this is a trend for the young and incredibly hip and I may end up looking like an overgrown version of my 6 year old daughter. Sod it.  I’m not ready to hang up my ankle socks yet just because I’m nearly 30.  Nor my hot pants for that matter.
