Plaid skirts are sexy. Headbands are hot. And bows are a turn on. Inspired by Blair Waldorf, it's an era of the oh-so-innocent Catholic school girl.
But if you can't quite get chummy with your tights, you're in luck. This season's alternative: the ankle sock.
For the skeptics, try wearing a subtle pair - like brown or nude. If you're feeling adventurous, embrace a bright pink pair with a neutral outfit.
The best part about the trend? It's free. We've all got socks, even if we aren't Catholic school girls.
