Heading to a festival this summer? Thanks to our changeable weather, it’s far from guaranteed that any festival visits will be sunny or rain free, and much as we might wish otherwise, it’s just not always bare leg weather. But that doesn’t mean you have to compromise your festival fashion or leave your little denim shorts at home. Instead, have some fun with your legs this year with some of the quirky, colourful and festival-inspired legwear on offer.
There’s so much fun to be had with ankle socks these days, and there’s definitely no need to shy away from showing a little sock as one of the summer’s most unlikeliest fashion trends is, apparently, socks and sandals. Interpret that as you will! Here are some of our season’s picks. From left to right:
Stance Chloe Socks in Tie Dye, £7.99, one size. Asos.com.
