Winter break is quickly approaching and students everywhere are craving coziness for the holidays after a stressful fall semester. So what better way to stay relaxed and warm than wrapping up in your favorite knitted accessories?
This season, knitted footwear has become the trend of choice and it’s taking sock-wear to a whole new level—literally. These trendy stalkings, also known as sweater socks, are usually worn with boots and go just slightly above or below the knee, depending on your desired length. Adding sweater socks to your ensemble can completely transform your outfit by adding a little flare to your footwear. The best thing about them though, is the fact that they’re super stylish and incredibly warm at the same time, making them the perfect accessory for those cold walks to class.
This Fashionista has styled the perfect ensemble for our ever-changing weather here in Kansas. She’s paired a lightweight sweater with a contrasting blue printed skirt and added a little touch of fall with her gray knitted sweater socks and brown boots. She’s also added a knitted infinity scarf for a little extra warmth, another great accessory for this season.
Another alternative to achieving this same look is by simply adding a pair of leg warmers to your ensemble. They create a little less bulk and when worn under boots, you can hardly tell the difference! Most leg warmers, like sweater socks, come in various different knit sizes, as well as colors, to match your favorite fall boots.
Whether you’re lounging around the house or bundling up for class, knitted accessories are the ultimate must-haves for staying comfy, cozy and fabulous all season long!
Spotted: Charlotte Ronson incorporated sweater socks into her spring ready-to-wear collection back in 2011. She personalized the trend by bravely pairing them with sandals rather than with boots, as most people usual do.
