Do you have a love of unique socks but aren’t sure how to pull them off with everyday wear? Then this is for you! Check out these easy ways to incorporate sock fashion into your wardrobe.
Pop of Color
If you want to show off your favorite pair of socks without making them the focal point of your outfit, then all you need is a skirt and a trusty pair of ankle boots.
This look is best achieved when you wear a dress or skirt. If your clothes have loud patterns, then pick a quieter pair of socks. If your outfit is tamer, then pick a pair that matches your color palette, but don’t be afraid to wear your favorite unique socks.
Once you put on the ankle boots, passersby will get a sneak peek of your snazzy socks popping up from your boots.
Spotlight the Socks
For too long, socks have been thought of as a hidden clothing item—something to hide in your shoes or tuck under your pants. Finally, socks are enjoying their time in the sun.
In fact, it’s perfectly acceptable to make socks the focal point of your entire outfit. A fun pair of socks can turn around an otherwise monotone outfit.
Start off with a pretty basic outfit. Stick with black and white pieces with minimal patterns; remember, the socks should be the focal point of the look. Dresses and skirts work well, but if you choose to go with pants, make sure you pick a pair that allows you to roll up the cuff to maximize the sock’s impact.
Next, pick your favorite loud-and-proud crew-length or a knee-length pair of socks. Because the rest of your outfit is so neutral, it won’t look too noisy.
Top it off with a pair of shoes that really shows off the socks. You could opt for something like a ballet flat, or, if you’re feeling bold, go with a strappy pair of heels. Socks with sandals may have been a faux pas in the past, but we promise you won’t look like your grandpa on vacation with this look.
Basic Building Blocks (Socks)
Unique socks don’t have to clash with your wardrobe. In fact, when paired properly, the right pair of socks can serve as the base of an amazing outfit.
Start with your favorite pair of socks. Look through your wardrobe to find solid or lightly patterned pieces that match the sock’s main colors. If you have a pair of sneakers in the color palette, that’s even better. Once you find all of the pieces, your socks will be the element that ties the whole outfit together.
Shorts and capris work really well for this look, but you can pull it off well with skirts and cuffed pants as well.
Do you have a job with a super strict dress code? Does it start to feel a little stuffy day after day? Don’t despair; you can instill a bit of personal flavor into your business wear.
