Socks are a simple and creative way to really spice up an otherwise plain looking outfit. But despite being so small, and so simple, they can be tough to style at times. So I've rounded up three easy ways that anyone can style socks.
Most fashion tips tell you not to mix patterns, since things tend to get too busy when you have a shirt with stripes and pants with squares. But with socks mixing patterns is something you can definitely get away with. Stripes are always a good bet for being bold with patterns, but not so bold that all attention is drawn right to your feet.
I have my fair share of crazy socks, as well as my fair share of plain, one color socks in grey, brown or tan. I like wearing these plain socks in bold and different ways, like pulling them up over my jeans or leggings, wearing them with tights and a dress or with flats or sandals. Plain socks make it easy to be bold with styles since the color is nice and simple, nothing too crazy.
But for those days when you do wanna get a bit wild and experimental, socks are always a good first step. With these socks I rolled up my jeans so that the cool pattern of the socks were more visible. The rest of my outfit was pretty plain that day, just a simple tshirt to go with the jeans, which brought all the focus onto the socks. I'm usually pretty wild with my fashion, and I won't ever shy away from wearing a statement shirt, statement pants and then crazy socks to top it all off, but if that isn't really up your alley, pairing crazy socks with a simple outfit is always a good bet.
