Fall Sock Trends

By | August 13, 2012

Although hard to believe, fall is right around the corner. We’re looking forward to fall for the crunchy leaves, crisp air, football, and of course fall fashion! You’ll want to keep your toes warm on those chilly nights, so here are some ways to incorporate socks into the trends of the season.

Slouch Socks

If you paid attention to Victoria Beckham’s fall 2012 collection at New York Fashion Week, then you must have noticed all the heavy boots. Of course, boots are not new to fall fashion, but all of the boots were worn over cozy slouch socks that fell just below the knee. What a trendy way to keep warm!

Another fall 2012 trend is the preppy look. I am talking ankle pants, letterman sweaters, and penny loafers. Slouch socks would also complete that look. A couple pairs could become very versatile in your wardrobe for the season.

If you are thinking color, then it will be helpful to know that fall’s 2012 sock colors are pretty basic. The list includes white, burgundy, navy, and black.

Knee highs

Knee-high socks look great paired with dresses and skirts or even with skinny jeans. Just like with the slouch socks, a good look for knee highs is to have them peeking out of tall boots. Look for knitted pairs, definitely not the athletic tube sock look.

Thigh Highs

Not only are knee highs a trend, but over-the-knee socks are also a great fall look.If you’re going to wear thigh highs with a skirt or shorts, be sure they’re not too tight around the top.  This style would look good with boots or heels, as seen on the starlets above.
