Fashionable Socks!

 Socks can be a great accessory if you know when to wear'em and 
how to choose the best ones for what you're wearing.
Today's guest blogger, Adam Bruk shares with us some great tips for
making your sock selections smart and fashionable! Enjoy!

Choosing the right pair of socks to keep your feet warm while looking fashionable can be rather tricky. There are some shoes that you can’t wear socks with at all, and others you would look silly not wearing socks with. Finding the right pair of socks to wear with your winter footwear is important for keeping your feet warm. You never know when you’ll need to take your shoes off when entering someone’s house or after stepping in a puddle and getting them wet. For these reasons, we’ve put together a guide on how to wear socks for a few popular styles of shoes.
High Heels and Pumps- If you asked us last year if it’s ok to wear socks with heels, we would think you were crazy. However, we’ve noticed more and more women this year fashionably wearing socks with their high heels. You no longer need to sacrifice comfort for style, especially during the bitter cold winter months. Knee socks are fashionable and will protect your legs from the harsh winter elements. We’ve also seen women wearing heels with crew or slouch socks as well. Knee socks are a bit more appropriate for office attire, while knee socks, crew, or slouch can be worn for a night on the town!
Flats- While you can wear socks with flats during the winter months, it’s not very fashionable to wear them during the summer.  There are two styles you can go with when wearing flats. This year, we’ve seen many people sporting knee socks, or even thigh high socks, with their flats. This certainly helps to keep your legs warm and goes well with a shorter dress. However, if you don’t want your socks to show, you can always opt for a pair of liner socks. They fit around your feet and perform the same functions as no show socks.
Athletic Shoes/Sneakers- It’s very important to wear a pair of socks when working out or wearing athletic shoes. While going without them might be more convenient, it’s not healthy for your feet. The type of socks you wear depends on the cut of your shoes. For example, if you are wearing a pair of shoes that go up on your ankle, such as basketball shoes, a pair of ankle socks is stylish and provides the most comfort. However, they shouldn’t be worn with a low cut athletic shoe. As a general rule of thumb, if your shoe doesn’t come up your ankle, neither should your socks! Opt for a low cut pair of socks or no show socks to go with your lower cut athletic shoes or sneakers.
Sandals- Unless you don’t care how you look, socks are never to be worn with sandals! It looks rather goofy and is not stylish at all. Plus, if it’s warm enough to wear sandals, you shouldn’t need to wear socks with them.
We hope this guide helps you find the right pair of socks to keep your feet warm and fashionable this winter!
