Those little white socks



"I think there is beauty in everything. What ‘normal’ people would perceive as ugly, I can usually see something of beauty in it."
- Alexander McQueen
The object: White school uniform socks

The problem: Usually worn with ugly black lace ups (and not the cool kind, im talking huge heavy shoes to match ugly plaid uniforms)
The solution is simple:  Draw out the classic vintage heart of these socks. They have been around for ages, so work with that. Pair them with vintage shoes, or like me, brown oxfords.  Work from there and build your outfit.
