If there is any accessory that Fashionistas tend to shy away from, it’s a pair of socks. Generally, our so-called “fashionable” shoes don’t require them, or we forgo them anyway. We’ve all done this with our Keds or Converse, right? But socks can actually add a lot to a look, as this Fashionista proves. They’re especially helpful during this time of the year when it’s not quite cold enough for boots, but chilly enough to ditch the sandals.
This Fashionista paired a great summer outfit with oxfords and socks that really complete her ensemble. And socks are fun, too! They don’t have to be the typical white socks pulled all the way up like your dad in the ’90s, and they don’t have to be those cute little lace ruffle socks you wore as a kid, either. (Although, I wouldn’t mind a comeback).
So many retailers are stocking up on fun, patterned socks for fall and winter, so get some! J.Crew and H&M have a ton of really colorful printed ones. Honestly, why wouldn’t you want someone to see your socks with zebras on them? Find a way to make them complement your outfit by pairing it with neutrals. When we finally move into the colder months, legwarmers can become another option. Don’t think Flashdance, think cozy Pinterest DIY! Pair them with a great pair of combat boots, or any lower rise boots, a pair of leggings and an oversized sweater!
