In the dead of winter, trying to spot a girl on campus without cozy and chic leather boots on is like trying to scroll down Pinterest without seeing a variety of Michael Kors watches, sentimental quotes and uber-skinny fitness models. Below-the-knee boots are the simplest, most versatile and most efficient footwear accessory to pair with skinny jeans and an oversized sweater, leggings and a long-sleeved tee or tights and a colorful tunic. However, in order to stand out from the crowd, a new trend is popping up—literally. Boot socks are the perfect embellishment to keep your feet warm and add a dash of charm to any ensemble!
Since boot socks are all about putting on that extra touch to be truly original, the trend is completely and wholly dependent upon choosing just the right quirky design for your individual style. And, luckily, there are plenty of varieties of the decoration to choose among! Whether making a statement with bold-patterned fleece socks, exemplifying your girly side with lacy buttons and crocheted frills or matching your scarves and other winter accessories with a variety of color options, boot socks are made for any and everyone.
This week’s Fashionista fits the trend to her unique character by pairing gray leggings and a teal sweater with multi-colored, argyle-patterned socks. By choosing an unobtrusive, nude colored garment, there is plenty of room to explore with fashion risks, bold hues and intriguing patterns throughout your actual clothing or other accessories. Plus, these simple and chic socks go perfectly with everything: tights, leggings, skirts, tunics, dresses, peacoats–you name it!
