The winter season brings out many fashion trends such as layering, oversized colorful coats, and infinity scarves. Still, you would probably never think that one of the most significant winter fashion statements and trends is socks. Socks are trendy this year and will continue to be during the winter months. There’s nothing better than being fashionable while keeping warm. Here are a couple of styles and ways you can wear socks this winter season:
Over-the-knee socks are definitely in this season. They have always been there but not quite as popular as they are becoming nationwide. If you have never tried this look, now is the time to gain the courage and see why it’s such a popular trend these days.
Knee-high socks go great with boots, heels, and even sneakers – depending on the outfit. Several types of dresses paired with knee-highs can make for the perfect business. For extra warmth, wear the socks over tights. Staying comfy with just a little thigh showing is enough to be sexy, but cute and classy all in one. You can find over-the-knee socks almost everywhere with several options to choose from like retail, designer, shoe stores, and more.
For a boho-chic, comfy, sexy, but urban look, opt for knitted ones in grey, black, nudes, or browns. They go with anything and compliment every single outfit: shorts & silky tops or slouchy sweaters, skirts and sophisticated blouses or cardigans worn with a belt, knitted dresses, or long sweaters. For more of a holiday party look, you can go for black over-the-knee socks or embellished ones with a black dress.
Socks with Heels
Socks with heels are the perfect winter trend for 2013. These comfy, sexy, fun, playful feet cover-ups offer infinite styling options. Polka dots, stripes, suspender, skeleton & bones mock socks, sheer, black, striped, white, lace, plus so many more! Socks do look fantastic with heeled shoes, chunky thick ones, stilettos, court shoes, sandals, peep toe, pumps.
This certainly isn’t a combo for the faint of heart; it takes a certain kind of gusto and quirkiness to pull it off. If you’re the type who wears black patent pumps every day to work, then this is probably not the look for you. But if you’re feeling adventurous and exceptionally stylish, then you should pull off socks with heels once the temperatures drop.
Exposed Boot Socks
Take note: boot socks are primary this year. The big trend this year is pairing knee-high or over-the-knee socks with long boots that hit below or just over the knee. You want a good inch or two of hose above the boot. Throw in the mix textured socks in grey, creams, and generally neutral colors, with the occasional bright color.
Exposed socks look great and are super warm over skinny jeans or tights, and by all means, play it neutral; however, the key to this look in 2013 is to work colored socks with dark jeans OR brightly colored jeans or tights with neutral socks. For fun and on-trend look, wear boots and socks with a dress or skirt, either with bare thighs or opaque or patterned stockings. It’s just about how you match the colors, textures, and cuts of your dress, socks, and boots.
