Today, instead of running the same images of the same dresses that everyone else is featuring, we’re going to give you something different—WWWD Tips. We figured that you’ve probably been exposed to enough Oscar dress information already, and, since there were significantly fewer festivities Sunday night (Vanity Fair, we missed you so!), images from the night were underwhelming, to say the least. Having vented our Oscar blahs, we’ll now turn to three looks we love and discuss the kernels of stylistic virtue each one holds
Pick up a pair of ankle socks to wear with spring shoes
There aren’t many people who can pull together an inspiring look for the airport, but leave it to Chloe Sevigny to whip up something amazing for the LAX gateways. We are particularly fond of her socks, an accessory that had quite a moment at the spring shows. The ankle-hugging hosiery was on display at Anna Sui, Comme des Garcons, Gareth Pugh and Louise Goldin, as the designers showed these small socks paired with booties, platforms and sandals alike. Of all the slim socks offered, we fell hardest for the ones shown on the Burberry runway, but alas, it wasn’t meant to be (apparently they were only made for that show). We’ll console ourselves with a pair from Topshop, their Supersoft Ankle Socks ($6) might make us feel better.
