A lot of women have trouble finding the type of socks that are comfortable for them. If you haven't found the sock style that meets your needs, the below information will help you find a selection that suits your own personal style.
There is no one perfect style or set of sock choices for everyone. But there are some basic guidelines that can help you choose what looks good, as well as what is comfortable to you. As with most things, it comes down to personal preference.
When choosing socks for your own wardrobe or for a gift, remember that the socks need to be appropriate for the outfit or occasion. For example, if it's a hot summer day and you'll be wearing shorts and sandals, ankle length knee highs are not warm enough. On the other hand, if you're dressing up for a more formal event, then ankle socks might be fine. Look at your own wardrobe and best choices and decide what looks best.
Also remember that different types of socks can have different styles. For example, sock-less loafers don't work well with knee highs because they will tend to slip off your feet. If you're dressing up in casual business attire, knee highs are definitely not appropriate.
Educate yourself about socks. The more you know, the easier it will be to make the right choices when selecting socks.
The first step in finding the right sock style for your wardrobe is to consider what type of pant and shoe you'll be wearing. For example, knee highs look best with skirts and dresses, while athletic socks are probably not going to match well with a dress or skirt. Again, it comes down to your own personal style and preferences.
When you're out shopping for socks, keep in mind that different types and styles of socks can be worn with different types of pants and shoes. For example, athletic socks can be worn with sneakers or athletic shoes as they are a little thicker than pantyhose. Also, the sock may have a ribbed heel or pattern on it that will fit in well with the materials used in your pants or shoe.
To be more spesific, here are some styles that can match and look good in a woman's wardrobe:
Knee highs are a very popular style. They can be worn with skirts and dresses, as well as slacks or shorts. They come in both cotton and wool. Knee highs can have patterns such as stripes, or they can be solid color. If you don't like the look of opaque knee highs, or if you have chubby legs, try some with a sheer look to them. You'll still get the coverage you need without seeing your skin underneath through the fabric of the socks. We have some in our store, check it out here!
Ankle socks come in a variety of styles. The most popular is the tennis style that has a little tongue at the top that can be folded over. They look best with casual outfits such as shorts or jeans, although if you want to wear them under longer slacks, it's fine too. Here are some examples!
You may see these kinds of socks referred to as "low cut" or "hidden. " The bottom of the sock is longer than that of traditional ankle socks, so it sits below your ankle. These kinds of socks look best with pants such as casual khakis and Dockers, especially those that are not cuffed.
Over the Calf Socks
These are a little thicker than athletic socks but thinner than knee highs. They come in different lengths and some look fine when worn with shorts. They are perfect for hot weather because they will help to keep your lower legs and feet cool. They also look good with cuffed pants as they will cover the top of your footwear.
You'll see that these are different from "nude-colored" socks. They are either solid white or some other natural color such as tan or cream. The reason they have this name is because if you wear them with a dark colored pant, it will give the appearance that your skin tone matches the color of your pant leg, creating a nice, smooth line from top to bottom.
The thickest of the sock styles, thigh-highs are usually worn with dressier outfits. They come in solid colors and even have lacy trim on them. They go over your knees and can extend to the middle of your upper leg, depending on the design. Some women choose thigh highs to wear with a skirt or dress that has a tunic top and long pants underneath. Thigh highs add just a little bit of style to an otherwise very conservative outfit. Check out these for example!
Like thigh highs, calf-high socks are thick and are worn with dressier outfits. They have a little tie at the top that is usually folded over and tucked inside the sock. They can either be worn with a skirt or dress or with long pants. The look is very formal and put together. If you are going to wear them with shorts, make sure it's a longer length that will reach over your knees.
