Women willing to embrace socks and heels
Well-known style icons such as Sarah Jessica Parker have been modelling the socks and heels look for a while now but are normal women brave enough to embrace the combo?

A recent survey by online fashion resource Fab Sugar revealed that 18 per cent of respondents would wholeheartedly adopt the trend, deeming it stylish and practical, while a further 32 per cent of those surveyed would pair their fashion socks and heels once in a while.

Under half of those questioned were not brave enough to attempt the look.

Eric Damon, costume designer for the hit show Gossip Girl, and who often dresses the show's star Blake Lively in fun socks and tights, previously advised people following this trend that pairing knee high socks with thin stilettos is a "no, no".

Writing in the Los Angeles Times, Damon suggested that simple peep-toe pumps and monochromatic shoes work best with socks.

In the recently released Sex and the City movie, leading lady Sarah Jessica dons over the knee argyle socks with her gladiator-style heels.
