Fashion Recap: The British Fashion Awards

Fashion’s finest turned out for the British Fashion Awards last night. And while some brought their A-game, others completely missed the mark. Pixie Geldof, I’m looking at you. That stuffed-animal clutch (if that’s even what it was) is cringe-worthy.

Alexa Chung, on the other hand, wowed in a Stella McCartney mini, passing the British Style Award baton off to Harry Styles (talk about staying true to your name). Sienna Miller stunned in an emerald Burberry number, but it was the debut of her new rose-gold hair that really stole the show. In love.

Yes, You Can: Wear Socks with Heels

Being a style risk taker can feel (literally) like you’re toeing the edge of the DON’T pages in Glamour. Mixing prints, the hotly debated PJs at work (hey, I’ve worn a swimsuit to work before… with pants, mind you), and here’s another one to add to the sartorial controversy list: socks with heels.

Alexa Chung’s been rocking them for years. And no way, José, do I mean white knee socks with slip-on sports sandals. I’m talking about those cute little open-toe sandals, the pair you don’t pack away just in case there’s a freak heat wave in January.

Here in New England, we’re entering into an eight-month season of tights and boots. I’m not ready for that type of commitment. Instead, I’m thinking Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2012 and easing into the cooler months with a slew of shoe and sock combos.

This post from Stylelist, which references the same Dolce & Gabbana collection, gives a quick rundown on how to get it right. Though I’ll admit it certainly is a toughie, this trend’s not as intimidating as it sounds.
