How Petite Girls Can Wear Socks and Shoes, According to Emma Roberts

Pint-size actress Emma Roberts is one of our ultimate sources of style inspo for petite fashion girls. The latest sartorial lesson the 5'1" star taught us is how to tackle the statement sock–and-heels trend—one you might assume should be left to the Karlie Klosses of this world. Ankle-length socks can run the risk of making legs look shorter, cutting off the ankle at an unflattering point, but Roberts shows that the secret to making it work is to balance this out with shorts or a skirt falling mid-thigh. The Scream Queens actress also proved that it pays to play with unlikely sock-and-shoe combos, pairing glittery sequin heels with sporty striped socks and completing the look with a black Brandy Melville baseball cap, a black jumper and a black LNA miniskirt.
