5 Stylish Ways to Wear Socks

If you haven’t been living under a rock you’ll know that socks have become a must-have fashion accessory. The times when socks were something to hide are long gone. Today socks are colorful, printed with unique designs, adorned with frills and garters. There are plenty of ways to incorporate socks in your outfits. Don’t cringe over the thought of wearing socks with open shoes or with low vamp shoes. Don’t refuse the idea of wearing knee high colorful socks with sneakers. Everything is allowed when we talk about socks (well, almost everything).


How to Wear Socks

Fall is our favorite season, because we can add layers and create all sorts of color combinations with our clothes. The second reason is that we can experiment with unique ways to incorporate socks into our outfits. Whether we’re talking about over-the-knee socks, knee-high socks or ankle socks there are many cool ways to wear these often overlooked accessories. Poor socks. We need them in order to wear shoes, so why not show them off as something we’re proud of?

  1. Socks with Open Shoes.

Ok, ok don’t run away screaming. We don’t want you to look like a tourist. We just want to wear those open toe shoes a little longer, or give a new look to our plain black sandals. Socks with open shoes can be fun. You need to try this “trend” this fall, because no, you won’t look like your dad when he’s wearing Crocs and white tube socks.

  1. Socks with Sneakers.

Well, you have to wear socks with sneakers unless you want to throw them away at the end of the day (and your feet with them!) Since you must wear socks, why don’t you dare to wear some quirky ones? Socks can be cool and purposeful. Don’t wear the same old short white or black socks. Try something different. Go for some contrast and wear cute ruffle ankle socks with sporty sneakers. Nice and original!

  1. Over-the-Knee Socks.

This style is so versatile; you can literally wear over-the-knee socks with everything. They look cool with knee length skirts, miniskirts, shorts and even dresses. They can be worn in many different ways, rolled down on your calves, one up and one down, you can even wear two different socks (don’t go too far with this quirky look: opt for the same design but in different colors.) They also go with almost every kind of shoe, especially high heels. A pair of high heeled pumps with over-the-knee socks can be a very naughty look!

  1. Socks with Boots.

You might think a cool pair of boots is enough to make a look. Well, you’re wrong. You can play with boots and socks and create many different looks. You can wear frilly socks with biker boots to create a nice contrast. You can also wear bright solid colored over-the-knee socks. Give your boots a twist and try different matches.

  1. Socks over Tights.

This match must be the most comfortable and cozy thing you can do during Winter. The best thing is that it actually looks good! It’s better if you wear knee-high or over-the-knee socks with tights, for two good reasons. One is that they will keep you warmer, and the second is that short socks can drag your tights down. We assume that you don’t want to spend the whole day trying to make your tights stay up. Are you a fan of socks?  Even if you aren’t, you must admit they definitely are a good way to spice up your wardrobe in a simple way. Start stocking up on socks and you will soon love them. It’s time to throw away your old plain white socks and get on the cool socks bandwagon. You can always make sock puppets out of your old socks!
