HOW I STYLE FALL/WINTER SWEATER...AND SOCKS: MAKING IT FUN

HOW I STYLENFALL/WINTER SWEATERS...AND SOCKS: MAKING IT FUN
Sometimes i wonder why some fall/winter socks are made to look so pretty only to have them hidden underneath our pants or in our boots. I remember elementary and high school days you wanted to have those cute little white ankle length socks with bows so you could show them off because it was cool at the time. Although, lately, it has become so trendy to wear your knee-high socks pulled up strategically in such a way that they show slightly above the boots or booties. I think its is really cool.

Although, i have styled my pair of mid-calf socks here with pumps which i personally like a lot, but i get that it may be weird to others. I randomly found this colorful sweater and somehow stumbled into this pair of socks too, so i just knew i had to style them together. The sweater and socks do have some similarities in design (the stripes), but not the same exact colors (which was what i would have preferred). Regardless, i wanted to create a look that will best show off my almost matching sweater and socks styled together without having to hide most or all of it.

I actually wore this whole outfit to  meet up with a potential collaborator and friend the other day when the weather was still more like fall than winter, but with a different corduroy skirt.

Colors never looked better! You are so right, it doesn't make any sense for the pretty socks to be hidden. You killed this look. Two thumbs up Busola. http://fashionablyidu.blogspot.com/

Elle berman said...

Busola.

I agree, socks are under appreciated as a styling element! Love these stripes with the heels, and the fun clash of the stripes with the sweater. the Bold orange is perfect for the skirt and the bag, too, adds such vibrance. Or maybe that is jsut you smile and those cheekbones...yeah, that one!

Ah-mazing!
