In a surprise to no one, Blake Lively is shaking things up a bit. Instead of typical winter colors, she’s been rocking some spring pastels. The Gossip Girl alum recently wore a bold blue turtleneck sweater dress with some crochet details and a matching cardigan, but what really took her look up a notch was the shoes she wore, and how she wore them.

Bejeweled Socks and Heels

Blake Lively stepped out with her mom, looking glam in her pastel getup with some cool accessories. She rocked the light pink socks with jewels on them, a bold move that popped against the blue and pink of her outfit.

But the real showstopper was her lavender Manolo Blahnik Hangisi heels. The pumps, paired with her bedazzled socks, made for a fun mix of classy and playful.

Socks and Sandals Reimagined

Opinions are very divided when it comes to wearing socks with sandals—or in this case, heels—but Blake Lively is embracing it. Taking a page from Carrie Bradshaw’s book, Blake paired socks with the Manolo Blahnik heels. True to her character, she’s put her unique twist on the look.

The result was a chic blend that boldly challenged fashion norms while showing off Blake’s unabashed love for pink, which has become a common theme in her fashion statement. Recently she made a striking appearance in a vivid pink outfit at a reunion with her Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants co-stars, making it evident that her adoration for this color is deep-seated and unapologetic.
