ALL IN THE DETAILS: Socks You Knee(d)

It may already be winter, but that does not mean it is already time to put away your fall or even spring dresses. Tights can be uncomfortable, and wearing leggings underneath a dress can sometimes just looks odd. Luckily, this Fashionista found the perfect solution to keeping warm and wintery while wearing her favorite dresses: knee socks. This winter, pull out your favorite knit dress, dress it up with a pair of knee socks and let the world know that “the cold never bothered me anyway.”

This Fashionista wore a purple knit dress, and paired it with simple accessories and dark tones. The gorgeous jewel tone of the dress looked stunning in the contrast to the stone heather shade of her socks. The darker color was likewise appropriate for the winter, and it was a refreshing contrast from the black wardrobes we usually see on campus.

Pairing brown leather boots with her dress appropriately covered her legs, and, of course, her boot socks added an additional layer of warmth and comfort. This combination of over-the-knee tights and performance socks with Bootight’s “Ellevator socks” likewise ensured that this Fashionista would be comfortable in boots while also allowing her to avoid snags and runs that are so common with traditional tights.

Finally, this Fashionista accessorized with a beautiful gold lariat necklace. A minimalistic design looked beautiful against her dress, and the simplicity of the piece aligned with her elegant look.

How To: Break out your favorite knit dress, and put on your favorite pair of over-the-knee socks. With a pair of leather boots, you’ll be warm and fashionable.
