5 Ways to Style Socks!

Ways to Wear SocksWe are so excited for this one! Today Kelli Murray is back to share five cute ways to style socks. Socks can be an intimidating accessory, especially during warm weather months.Ankle socksCute ankle socksPATTERN + POP - Socks are an accessory that can spice up any outfit.  With this look, i paired a simple black and white striped dress with a brightly colored ankle sock and heels.  This look might be a little "blah" without the extra pop of pink from my socks and coordinating clutch.  Accessories can go a long way in completing a look!  If you happen to have a fun floral sock, you could do the reverse of what I have done here and pair your patterned sock with a solid dress.Black socksSummer socksECLECTIC BOHEMIAN - There are a lot of ways you can style a solid black knee high sock....but i decided to take a more unconventional route and turn it bohemian.  Sometimes contradictions in fashion just work! I choose a colorful patterned dress and gypsy like fringe vest to offset my black accessories. Also, secret: wearing black heels with black knee high socks and a mini skirt creates a wonderful illusion of longer legs! Always a bonus, right!?Summer styleBlack ankle socksFEMININE MEETS GRUNGE - Socks can be appropriate for an everyday casual look as well.  Here, I wore a ruffled black ankle sock with my favorite oxford flats.  For a day look, oxfords are my number one shoe choice to wear with an ankle sock.  Comfy and cute!  Mixing girly and grunge, I choose to pair a nude pleated skirt with a lace skull tank and military jacket.Grey socksHow to style summer socksLACE + LAYERS - I would say this is more of a fall look than anything, but I had to show you a colder weather option to styling socks.....because it is in fact my favorite way to wear them! With boots and lots of layers! It never really gets TOO cold where I live in San Diego, even in the winter months, but for those brisker days, this look is just right.  Have fun and try mixing different textures within your layers.  My loose weave sweater nicely offset my scalloped crochet shorts, and my heathered knit socks worked well with my leather boots and bag.Knee socksWhite knee socksSIMPLE VINTAGE CHIC - Like I mentioned before, one of the easiest ways to wear over the knee socks is with a short hemmed skirt.  If you're not comfortable wearing a short skirt with a bare leg, socks just might be your best friend! Try them with a lace up bootie, patterned skirt, basic blouse and a vintage hat!

Thanks so much Kelli, we love all your sock styling ideas!
