Sock booties are one of the hottest trends in the ankle boot category this season, and I’m a fan. They’re generally quite slimming because they fit close to the ankle, which is the narrowest part on a woman’s leg, and they have an air of sophistication I’m drawn to.
It’s taken me some practice to get used to styling them, but you can see how I wore them with skinny jeans late last winter here and here. For today’s post, I’m styling them with straight ankle jeans.
So here’s where I’m going to be really annoying and tell you that everything I’m wearing has sold out or been discontinued. I KNOW. But here’s the thing. I get tired of buying new stuff all the time. Honestly. And everything I’m wearing is a classic piece that can be found in your closet or at the retailer of your choosing, so it’s totally relevant. I just don’t have exact product links… well, I do, but they’re sold out. Ha!
These booties were a purchase late last winter. They were a bit of a splurge, but I got them on a really good sale, which is how I recommend buying splurge-worthy pieces. I had ordered and returned a few different styles before I landed on these, and it was love at first sight. They’re by Club Monaco, and these are similar, but I also linked up some other similar styles for less in the shopping widget at the end of this post. There are tons of sock bootie options right now.
These Frame slender straight leg jeans were an #NSale style that recently sold out, but I did find a similar pair. Unfortunately, the current pair is not on sale, so I also rounded up a few other options at various price points in case you’re looking for a pair. I still want to get a dark wash pair, but this light wash is on trend and fun for a change.
Sock booties and straight leg jeans work really well together because the jeans fall easily over the booties, and you don’t have to worry about them getting caught up in the top of the boot or anything.
On top, I wore a classic grey pullover — another #NSale purchase. This boxy style is a great length for pairing with high rise jeans like the one I’m wearing. I don’t care for the front-tuck with high rise jeans, so I try to wear sweaters that are the perfect length for wearing untucked.
Because the jeans are ankle-length, they tend to shorten the line of the leg, so a shorter top is necessary to keep the proper proportions. This one is 23″ in length, which works out perfectly for me.
I don’t love crewneck tops on me, so I wore a pair of pendant necklaces to help draw the eye in and down towards the waist. The goal here is to elongate the neck and create the illusion of a longer torso. I also like how these pieces have a bit of bling that dresses up the look.
Realistically, when it’s cold enough to wear this outfit, it will be cold enough for a coat or jacket, so I threw on my black leather jacket to show how I would finish off the look if I were going out.
This is the type of outfit I’d wear out to dinner in the fall or winter with my husband or friends. Again, my jacket is old, but I did find a similar one by the same brand, AND it is on sale!
