    And now there’s a brand new on for summer dressing, and it changes everything.

    We’re still waiting for the sun to arrive in the UK, which means it has not exactly been the perfect weather to dig out your best sandals. So if you’re still wearing your favourite loafers but haven’t got the right socks to wear with them, this shoe hack is for you.

    ASOS shared a video on their Instagram page, writing: ‘Fashion hack alert. caught out with the wrong socks? Try this.’ The clip has had over 430,000 views so far because it is genius.

    It shows someone wearing a regular sock (neon, because why not?) about to put on a silver loafer. To stop the sock from showing with the shoe on, they pull the sock down to the toes and wrap it back under the heel and voila – it creates the perfect pop sock.

    One fan of the hack wrote: ‘Hol’ up you might of just done something right there.’

    Another added: ‘Mind blown, life changed.’

    ‘This is life changing,’ a third commented.

    Others were loving the pink sock and silver shoe combo and said they’d wear it fully showing.

    One thing is for sure – it’s a game changer if you can’t find any trainer socks in your drawer.
