Socks. Yep, the last item you probably think of when putting together your outfit. Sure, they’re critical to making your favorite pair of flats or sneakers actually comfortable, but aside from that, you probably don’t think much of them. Okay, okay, perhaps you’ve noted the festive, colorful iterations out there to give your ensemble the perfect finishing touch, but what about the more athletic styles in your drawer? While they’re often an afterthought (reserved for the gym or bumming around), they’re actually becoming a new fashion staple.

As the street elite proved recently during fashion month, sportier socks—white crew styles and the like—are actually holding their own as “outfit makers.” That’s right. Look at Veronika Heilbrunner for example—she consistently showed off her white Nikes to highlight them in a fashionable way, and not just for “function.” We’re particularly feeling the look because a pair of athletic crew socks can cost under $10 (you can even get a six-pack for that price). Fashion’s new It accessory at that price point? Done and done. Keep scrolling for proof on how street style stars are putting their white socks front and center. Plus, shop must-have pairs, too.

Next, check out the best socks to wear with flats.

Did you catch this post last time? If so, simply continue on for a trove of inspiration and shopping. If not, here’s the rundown… As someone who was actually pretty late in the game (the game here being Instagram’s Saved collections), I now wonder what I was thinking. I love utilizing the feature to save anything from funny memes to interestingly composed photos to fashion pieces I love (and, naturally, want to buy). Speaking of that latter use, I decided to start reaching out to my fellow Who What Wear editors to find out what they’ve been eyeing too. Needless to say, they deliver every time. To see and shop the fashion items we currently have saved to our Instagram collections, just keep reading.

“I’m obsessed with pretty much everything Alessandra Rich has put out this season, but especially her crystal statement earrings.”
“I’m not much of a heels person, but these iridescent pumps are so cool and unexpected—I’m in love.”
“Retro-inspired sweater, without any of the retro odor of vintage. Win!”
“I have been searching for the perfect checkered piece of clothing, and I’m pretty sure these pants are it.”
“I don’t know if I could pull the whole suit off as well as she does, but I’ll be dreaming about this blazer tonight.”
“I’m particularly eyeing this Donni sweater Aimee is wearing, and this is pretty much the ideal fall/winter outfit combination for L.A. weather.”
“I think it’s safe to say that everyone in our office wants these crystal Amina Muaddi heels—myself included. Can you imagine cooler holiday shoes?”

You know those rare times you come across a fashion find so life-changing that you wonder what you even wore before you owned it? Well, today I’m here to share one of those finds. About a month ago, my friend was wearing high-waisted trousers with the most ideal cropped and fitted top I had ever seen. Appearances didn’t deceive me, either. She proceeded to spill that she was wearing Free People’s Skinny Strap Brami Top, and it was one of the best purchases she’d ever made. I immediately recalled our managing editor, Michelle Scanga, gushing about the same top not too long ago—she even wrote a story about it. I then proceeded to order two for myself and completely understood what all the hype was about.

Let. me. tell. you. why. This brami top (the hybrid of a bra and cami) hits at the perfect spot on your torso to pair with high-waisted bottoms. It perfectly meets the top of the pants so that almost no skin shows, or if, like me, you want to show a bit of skin sometimes, you can simply fold it under a bit to flash more of your waist. Combine this with the fact that it currently comes in 23 colors and rings in at just $20, and I’ve got my new favorite going-out top.

Now I will admit that my small chest size (32A, in case you were wondering) does allow me to go braless in this seamlessly, you can always throw a lightweight style on underneath if you choose. This top is so simple yet so clutch. There’s a reason this top has 10.8K loves on Free People’s website—10,000 other folks can’t be wrong. Keep scrolling to see and shop this magical top.

Considering the fact that Balenciaga’s iconic Triple S sneakers have taken street style and our Instagram feeds by storm this past season, imagining another, equally iconic style seemed unnecessary. However, we couldn’t help but notice the rise in Gucci sneaker outfits we’ve been seeing among the fashion crew as of late. From the sleek and classic trainers featuring the brand’s signature bands to the label’s own statement-making chunky shoes, there’s a style that any fashion lover can appreciate. Better yet, they all happen to go with anything.

Blame it on the cult following the brand has amassed since Alessandro Michele took the helm as Gucci’s creative director in 2015 or the “more is more” mentality that comes with his designs, but fashion girls just can’t enough of Gucci, whether they consider themselves maximalists or not. Regardless of where you fall on the spectrum, there are some Gucci sneakers that’ll fit your personal style, and we pulled gathered the coolest looks featuring shoes from the brand to prove just that. Read on to see how fashion girls are wearing these shoes.

These are just so cool.
Gucci’s answer to the “dad” shoe trend.
We’re loving this subtle embroidery detail.
These are just classic.
These just might be Gucci’s next big shoes.
These will make a statement like no other.
Just, yes.

Now, if you’ll excuse us, it’s time to join the Gucci gang.
