When we were young, we used them to make puppets. Then, we grew up a little and realized that they could be used to keep our feet warm. And now, as we are finding ourselves (and with that, our personal style) we have learned to use them to make a fashion statement. That’s right, I’m talking about socks! Striped, checked or spotted, it doesn’t matter! Those little feet warmers can be the perfect detail for your ensemble.
A true Fashionisto prides himself on his ever-growing collection of high fashion loafers. With their genuine leather and precise stitching, the price for shoes can often exceed that of your entire outfit. After spending your hard earned money on a fantastic pair of shoes, don’t let a pair of bland socks take away from them!
This Fashionisto knew exactly what he was doing when he added this accessory to his outfit. The combination of the checked button-down and the subtly striped socks is perfectly executed. While the patterns differ, the color palettes are similar, making them seamlessly complementary. With a little cuff of the hem, you can show off your fashionable footwear!
This little bit of extra effort will make a difference in your outfit. It is a great addition when trying to impress on a date or interview and can subtly dress up your look. These bolder striped socks from Banana Republic will stand out just enough to add a little flare to your feet. The navy and white stripes would be perfect under khakis and a pullover as we prepare to approach fall. For those of us that are still in denial, these socks from Johnston & Murphy may be just the pair for you. The colors may seem a little intimidating at first glance. Wear them with charcoal slacks and a dark blue button-down and your ensemble will be both tasteful and fun.
Spotted: Models for the Tom Ford fall 2013 menswear show definitely had warm feet as they walked down the runway in wool socks that echoed their sweaters.
