The thing about socks is that they have quite a personality! The feet warmers have long transcended from being functional to pure joy givers. They add so much to an outfit that it’s almost impossible not to spend time and heart in choosing your pairs now.
And there is a LOT to choose from. From sporty stripy ones to dainty lace ones. From animal faces to super heroes prints. From solids to patterns. From ankle length to leggings. There are cotton socks and woolen socks. There are pastels, bright colours, all grey and everything in between.
We’ve picked the ones that truly rock! These will add some serious style points to your winter wardrobe.
DAPPER socks for the little gentleman
In times where grown-up men are choosing to go all rainbow with their socks, here’s a little return gift from the kids :) Dapper socks inspired from formal attire of men are part of many boys clothing collections now. An ‘English’ colour palette, Gingham checks and graphic prints lend a sense of being dressed up. They are certainly not for football practice sessions. But will add oodles of charm to any formal outfit.
DELICATE Shades for a sweet marshmallow look
There is nothing quite as sweet and delicious as shades of pastels worn together. And we mean from head to toe! Besides the main outfit and shoes, it’s very smart to add pastels in socks / leggings. Opt for socks with small polkas or cubes print, dainty flowers or gentle colour blocking. The overall look should remind you of a sunlit patisserie window display.
ANIMAL FARM wear kindness to play
Animals are the best beings on planet earth. They are kids’ best teachers in kindness, responsibility, social interactions and adorable socks designs :) With so many cute eyes, noses and coat colours to choose from, animal-face socks make for an excellent stylish addition to any outfit. Fun details such a wool mane or pom-pom ears only add to the warm fuzzies. Kids can take their favourite animal along to play, a party or as a cozy friend snuggling up with hot chocolate.
KALEIDOSCOPE – play up the colour volume
Socks, among all the wardrobe items, are most easily accepted as the color supplier. Let alone kids – even adults have fun adding dollops of bright shades to their outfits with their pairs. Any colour you can think of, any colour combination you can think of - is probably a pattern in socks. It’s a lot of fun to add the riot to simple sporty clothes like rompers and tee n shorts. It brightens up the day. And it helps to spot one’s child in the garden - wearing rainbow on the ankles.
LETS GO PARTY in chic style
Not all socks shout out. There are some sophisticated ones that add a lot of silent charm to your outfits. Their magic powers lie in their tasteful colours. Embellished with lace trimmings, petite bows or sheer fabric, these socks are meant to enhance your chic dresses. Monochrome outfits work the best for this look. Don’t forget your shiny dancing shoes!
GEOMETRY design precision on socks
These socks look like they were created in the dreaded math class. Stockings with checks borrowed from math notebook pages. Straight lines dividing leggings. Perfect circles created from the geometry box. But don’t be fooled - these socks have an evolved sense of design. The colours are minimal and yet artistic. To get the look right or balanced, pair these stark socks with equally simple patterned outfits. Stick to complimentary colours. Avoid contrasts to upset the fine equation :)
QUIRKY CRAZY for kids who wear their hearts on their... calves
Socks are also a great way to show others what we love. What we fancy. Or simply find funny. Add some quirk (and attitude) to everyday clothes with superheroes, dinosaur flaps and winky face characters. Smelly feet are a horrible way to be scary, get skeleton drawings and monster faces to do that job instead. These funny pairs will lighten up any outfit. You can mix and match the way you like. After all, all kids have their whims. And they should be allowed to wear that too!
