Accessories Report

Now that the warm weather has definitely moved out of Indiana, students everywhere are looking for ways to make the many daily walks across campus as warm and comfortable as possible. Some resort to doubling up on the leggings, others turn to chunky scarves. However, as of late it seems as though many Fashionistas are making use of the chunky sock trend to help them navigate through the bitter cold climate in style.

This Fashionista put a classy spin on this trend by wearing her chunky knit socks with heeled black boots, black leggings, and a plaid scarf reminiscent of Burberry’s classic print. The chunky knit aspect of her socks adds a laid-back feel to an outfit that would otherwise be on the dressier side for class. For a look that takes you back to the '90s grunge era, wear your slouchy socks with a pair of combat boots or Doc Martens. For a subtle take on the trend, go for a peek-a-boo effect by wearing knee-high boots with socks that are just a little taller. Adding a pop of color to your socks can also turn these accessories into the focal point of an outfit, like this. If you want to go all out, pick a pair of socks in a chic print to really stand out. No matter which way you choose to wear them, you’ll be warm enough for those chilly walks.
