How To Style Long Socks

Yes! How to style long socks! The sock trend is making a comeback and we are starting to see it emerge this season. I honestly don’t remember wearing long socks since it was a trend back at school when everyone rocked over the knee socks, side fringes, listened to the xx and obsessed over the Twilight Saga. But this time it will be better, I promise.

This time picture yourself wearing sheer knee high socks, the iconic Prada boots (the ones with the little side pouch) and a blazer dress cinched at the waist with a matching belt. So. Much. Better.

The best thing about these socks is that you can style them for any occasion whether you want to dress up or if it’s for everyday wear. If you want your outfit to be more dressy opt for the sheer knee high socks because the wooly knee high socks can be quite casual. I think the sheer fabric makes them more versatile and appropriate for a wider variety of situations rather than if they were wooly.

If you want to add another dimension to your outfit check consider wearing patterned socks – keep them sheer black though for ease of styling!

How To Style Long Socks…

1. Utility

I just love the whole utility tech vibe of this outfit. From the slender shades, tailored skirt and jacket to the gold jewelry and buckle belt – it just works. This monochrome outfit it the perfect way to easily style these black sheer knee highs. In particular when styling these socks they tend to work better with a brogue type shoe like Bella wears, boots or loafers.

Pair your socks with patent ankle boots and a safari green blazer coord. In fact any sort of blazer action makes a great outfit with these socks. Keep the the look structured by wearing it with a boxy or a really functional looking bag.

3. Leather Coord

If the weather permits wear your socks with a leather skirt and jacket coord and a simple crop top, else pop on a turtle neck or even a jumper! Either way it will still look fab. I think what is key to styling these knee high socks is to keep your outfit quite tough. Simple and edgy pieces work so well in these looks.

This fun 90s inspired outfit is a little bit grungy chic. Dress down a strappy dress by wearing it with some comfy docs and tailored leather blazer. I love this ruched banana bag it really reminds me of one of the Bottega Venetta bags.
