minisocks-ballet.jpg Mini socks could soon be a fashionable item if ASOS.com are stocking them. Created by French designer Delphine Murat, they were popularized in a 2006 edition of British Vogue. Since then, we haven't heard much from the brand that combines the practicality of sockettes with stylish ballet-style straps which you wrap ribbon-like around the ankle. I'm loving these lace ballerina Mini Socks with their floral design and how they would just jazz up a pair of simple black pumps. They will set you back £25 from ASOS.
