The Look for Less Reader Request: J. Crew Nylon Ankle Socks

J.Crew at ShopStyle

J. Crew shows us how to add a stylish pop of color to any ensemble with their nylon anklets, available in packs of 3 (pink/green/yellow, olive/cobalt/black or wisteria/plum/raisin) for $24.50.

Need another option? We Love Colors sells ankle socks in 51 brilliant colors for $3.50 a pair. Just one thing: Whatever you do, please don't style your neon pink socks with neon green pumps (except maybe for Halloween).

I do not care for this trend!! I saw a lot of neutral colored ankle socks being worn with heels on the Spring 2010 runway shows and I cannot groove with it.

I second that! Not feeling this trend at all.

I don't know if neon socks are for me, but I do love We Love Colors tights! I highly recommend them! :-)

What?! I think it can take a "blah" outfit and make it spectacular!

Not sure about the neon colors, but I love wearing thin white anklets with all my shoes. Comfy and stylish and I get lots of compliments. Just make sure they are nice and thin, and they are much cuter with the cuffs folded down!
