High socks and sneakers: This is how to wear this 90s-inspired fashion trend!

Princess Diana is one of the greatest fashion icons of our time. Not only all her life she has been setting trends with her stylings. Even today her looks serve as fashion inspiration for many. One of them is the “High Socks and Sneakers” styling that has taken Instagram by storm.

The time for sandals is officially over. In autumn we like to style chic sneakers with a simple outfit. Now you can add an eye-catcher to your outfit: mid-calf high socks also called crew socks. These are taller than ankle socks and are often worn around the mid-calf. So say goodbye to the tiny ankle socks and make a real fashion statement with long socks this fall. (By the way, you can also check out this sneaker trend for 2020.)

The styling is not new, because Lady Di already had exactly this look in the 90s. Yes, you got it right. The mother of Prince William and Prince Harry was not only known for her chic dresses and pantsuits but was also a real trendsetter with her casual and sporty outfits, especially in terms of street style.

Meanwhile, her leisure statement look is copied by more and more stars. Just like Diana back then, Hailey Bieber, Kendall Jenner, Halsey, Kourtney Kardashian, and Bella Hadid have all been seen rocking the stylish high socks sneakers combo. Especially popular are white tennis socks with brand logo plus white sneaker models.

And how to style the rest of the outfit with mid-calf socks? You have quite a choice. On warmer days, you can combine sneaker styling with cycling shorts and an XL shirt, but an oversized sweatshirt also looks really cool here. If it’s colder, you can also complement your outfit with mom jeans. Everything that underlines the 90s feeling is perfect. To add a little more chic to the mid-calf socks outfit, you can also pair it with a long autumn coat. It’s really fashionable combination, as Diana herself proves on this photo:
