The fashion world is always looking for new ways to push the envelope with already established style rules. One area which has been seemingly untouched, however, is how you wear your socks. Whether it is knee high boot socks or the classic ankle cut socks to hide under the short boots, the sock trend has stayed the same for years now.
Socks don't need to stay hidden anymore and showing them off in a variety of ways is a great way to create a new look. If you are looking for a new way to wear your socks, here are a few tips to follow.
Socks With Heels
We know what you're thinking, how could you possibly wear a pair of socks with heels that people could actually see? This is, however, a fantastic fashion statement and an excellent way to match the rest of your outfit with a little bit of color. Rocking a dress which has some bright color in it? Find some socks that have polka dots on them in the same color as the dress. This will help bring that color out even more and attract some attention to your feet as well.
It doesn't always have to be colorful socks with your heels, however, as a dark grey pair of socks can work wonderfully with a variety of colors of dresses and heels to add a vintage, retro feel to your outfit. You can even rock a pair of black socks with some black heels with an ankle strap to create a bootie look to your outfit.
Socks With Boots
Socks with boots are one of the age old predicaments of fashion today. When wearing ankle boots, women have always tried to find a comfortable pair of no-show socks which wouldn't slide off their foot throughout the day. For more comfort and a trendier look to your outfit, however, rocking a pair of half-calf length socks with some flair is the new look to try out.
You can wear this look with a dress on a warmer day and match the color of your socks with some bright laces on your boots for an exciting new look. Wearing your favorite jeans or pants with a pair of ankle boots? Instead of tucking the pants into the boots, tuck them into your socks instead and show them off above your boot for an exciting new style.
Maybe all you have is knee socks which you rock with your taller boots. Never fear, these socks can also look outstanding with your ankle boots when worn with a dress or skirt. Don't be afraid to think outside the box and create a brand new style you've been wanting to try out.
