Sock trends of 2018

Posted by SockShop

Thanks to their ability to instantly transform your outfit – and their sheer comfort factor – socks are earning their place on the catwalk this season. The SS18 shows had hosiery at the forefront, from knee-high socks at Prada to flouncy pop socks and everything in between. We’ve done a round up of the top sock trends of 2018 – all that’s left for you to do is stock up your sock drawer.
Sock Trends 2018

Sheer socks
They might not be the most practical choice, but sheer socks are a great way to lift your outfit and add instant delicacy with minimal cost and effort. Pairing pink sheer socks with ballet flats will put you bang on trend, but the joy of sheer fabric is that it goes with anything – so whether you layer them under your trousers and pair them with loafers or have them out on display under a pair of strappy sandals, make sure you add some to your wardrobe this season.

Sports socks
The sports casual trend is here to stay for 2018, but if your style is a little more smart than sporty, give a nod to the trend with some sports socks instead. Pair them with high-heeled sandals for a fashion-forward look, or have them peek over white trainers or autumnal boots for a more subtle effect.

Colour blocks
Colourblocking is a huge trend for this year, and all-over colour means your socks need to pull their weight too. Think pastel pink suits with pink socks and shoes – we’re talking an all-out style statement. Try out the trend with a pair of socks in the hue of your choice, or expand your wardrobe with a colourful pack of socks that will last you through plenty of sartorial experiments. Try our Colour Burst collections for dozens of designs.

Fifties-style pop socks
Once reserved for the older generation, Fifties-era pop socks are back in fashion and perfect for a flirty but delicate addition to any outfit. Pair them with a midi skirt and sandals, or style a fishnet pair with loafers for an edgy look. As well as looking stylish, they’re perfect for the colder months – who wants chilly ankles when you can add a colourful pair of pop socks underneath your trousers, anyway?

Knee-high socks
‘Geek chic’ was one of the trends seen on the Prada catwalk for SS18, and knee socks were a huge part of the look. Whether you go for plain neutrals or jazz it up with argyle prints, knee-high socks instantly transform an outfit and make you stand out from the crowd – so feel confident when you wear them. Pair with a trench coat and brogues for an instant chic look.
