Sock Horror! Lavigne Stirrup Socks

Stirrup-socks

We’re not totally sure if these are a genuine Sock Horror or not. To be perfectly honest, we’re not really sure of anything any more when it comes to socks and tights. Fashion seems to have entered some strange Twilight Zone recently, in which absolutely anything goes leg-wise, and the more impractical it is, the better.

Personally, then, we can’t think of a single occasion we’d need these for. They’re a kind of halfway house between knee socks and stirrup leggings, and that really says it all as far as we’re concerned. If this is just the thing you need to make your wardrobe, and perhaps your life, complete, however, they’re $39 at Shopbop.

    Perhaps they’re for people who want to wear peep-toe boots with cropped trousers. (A case of fashion criminals cooperating with each other perhaps.)

    Honestly, I think it could be kind of cute…. within a kids ballet class… or a flashdance remake.
    Otherwise, there’s no excuse.

    I hated them the first look I had at them. Then I saw them with the pumps. I kind of like them. …now I am just sad at myself.

    Enjoy! All the arch-tugging comfort of a stirrup pant with all the fashion appeal of a men’s black dress socks!

    Why is the barefoot model on tiptoe? Has she been wearing high heels so long she CAN’T come down?
