<p><span>There are those who say the sock is a mere detail; worse, some would go so far as to claim that the sock is one of those clothing items that simply don't matter, that it's a case of function over form and that no one in their right mind would waste time actually trying to make their own choice in socks fashionable. Not so! Though they are an under-appreciated piece of clothing, there's no reason you can't fight the tyranny and make a fashion statement in your own personal style with a pair of fuzzy socks... the question is how do you pick the right one?</span></p>
<div class="post-content">
<p>Once you've entered the world of socks, the astounding variety in what's available might surprise you. Prepare to feel like Alice after going through the rabbit hole as we introduce you to the magical world of socks and hosiery, where a dozen different fibers live in harmony with each other - because the day has not yet dawned when the right pair of fluffy, fuzzy socks could not be a cool addition to your favorite combination of clothing. We're going to teach you about some of the different socks - and there really are so many it's impossible that there aren't a few out there that are perfect for you - as well as how to pick and mix the best of them to match your wardrobe and ensemble and give it an extra boost into the realm of the gorgeous. And trust us,&nbsp;<a href="https://www.sockbin.com/blog/2016/06/how-to-wear-socks-with-different-footwear.html" target="_blank">if you follow our advice, people will notice</a>...</p>
<p>Like we mentioned, there's a variety of women's fuzzy socks out there to rival the animal kingdom - almost literally any design, pattern and color you can imagine can be found, probably even with a few variations. Take that as a ticket to go crazy! As clothing goes, cute women's dress socks, for example, tend to be on the less expensive side of things - it is one of their many noble attributes. So when you do go sock-shopping, feel free to throw your money around a little and grab whatever pair (or as many pairs) as grabs your fancy. It's one of those rare opportunities we'll have to let loose a bit with our spending and at the same time not have to worry about breaking the bank.</p>
<p>So, you've bought a dozen pairs of socks in a hundred different colors and patterns; what do you do now? Therein lies the beauty: almost anything you want. You can try to match your socks to the colors of your clothes, or (one of my favorite things to do) add a splash of color and variety to an ensemble that might be lacking a little bit in either or both. Black, for example, never goes out of fashion, but wearing a lot of black (though cool) can sometimes feel a little bit flat or lifeless. Try&nbsp;<a href="https://www.sockbin.com/blog/2016/06/wearing-bright-socks.html" target="_blank">spicing it up with a pair of colorful socks</a>; a flash of color (maybe even some daring toe socks) can add some personality and a touch of your own personal style to the whole ensemble, and the only limit is your imagination. You can match the socks to the color of your eyes, or a piece of jewelry you're wearing, or even your hair color. Limitlessness is bliss!</p>
<p>If you're an extra creative person, you can even try your hand at making your own socks; it's super fun and requires a little bit of sewing knowledge, but you'll end up with a cool accessory made by your own hand. Thick, winter season fuzzy socks are perfect for this as the greater thickness of the fabric makes it a little easier for beginner seamstresses (like myself) to work with. Also, note that the color is completely up to you here, pick whatever you think is appropriate and will go well with the rest of your wardrobe - white is always a good "canvas" to work with, but don't be intimidated to try something more festive if the mood takes you. The next step is even more fun: head on out to your nearest crafts store and pick up whatever kind of ornamentation takes your fancy! Ask a clerk and you're sure to find plenty of fabric glue and paint, as well as iron-ons, buttons and so forth. Stencils, you can try to make by yourself, but there's bound to be some of those, too, if you look around. Just be careful to allow the glue or paint to dry completely before wearing them, the last thing you need is for your stylish new fuzzy socks to be stuck to your skin (most fabric glues have clear instructions on the packaging regarding how long you need to wait for it to set). To make them last extra long, wash by hand and turn them inside-out before you do, it'll keep whatever ornaments you've added from being torn off. Great for yourself, or as a gift for someone else!</p>
<p>As you've probably gathered, the most important thing to remember here is not following the rules, but rather the exact opposite: break them, experiment, have fun and don't be afraid to try something that nobody else is doing. Some of them might take you out of your comfort zone at first, but the key to fashion sometimes is being a trendsetter rather than clinging to the trends set by others. There are some truly insane fuzzy socks to be found out there, but don't let their outlandishness scare you away from trying something that could very well turn out to be rewarding and new. Give that seemingly crazy pattern a whirl, or even combine it with another print entirely; wear it with style and confidence, and who knows? After a few times out like that, you might notice friends and even strangers asking where you bought them... And when it comes to fashion, there's no greater reward than knowing you've inspired others.&nbsp;</p>
<h2>BE&nbsp;<span>FASHIONABLE AND PRACTICAL AT THE SAME TIME&nbsp;</span></h2>
<p><img style="max-width: 100%; text-align: center; margin: 0 auto;" alt="" src="http://workstuff.us/Files/Content/woman.jpg" />While socks (especially the fuzzy socks of the world) can be gorgeous, their practical applications, i.e: keeping your feet, and sometimes legs, warm and comfy, accentuating the parts of your body you love and helping to hide the ones you...love somewhat less, should never be forgotten and always taken advantage of. Want to stay warm in the winter, but hate the bulk that that extra layer of tights under your pantaloons adds? Why not try a thigh-high pair of nylons under a long skirt instead? You'll stay nice and toasty in spite of the winter wonderland, and that extra pound or two you may or may not have put on (baking to keep warm is a legitimate excuse, we'll swear that to our graves) around your hips or tummy will be nicely reduced by the combination. Another great idea for the longer nylon socks is wearing them under a pair of boots to help create a very stylish layering effect with the socks protruding from the tops of the boots. Combine with a nice skirt and cardigan, perhaps a super cute hat for a fetching winter look indeed. And if you're not particularly fond of the way your legs look, but are envious of those who get to show theirs off, try a dark, solid-colored pair of socks (knee-high or above) with the aforementioned skirt ensemble; dark colors, especially solid black, always have a very pleasant slimming effect that should be a part of every woman's arsenal. On the other hand, if curves are what you want to bring, go the opposite way: lighter colored socks, with a dark skirt and light top above them, will create the illusion of added curviness for those who love the look but feel they might be lacking a little bit.&nbsp;</p>
<p>It would seem that the preppy look is making a slow, stealthy comeback from the realm of private schools and into the fashion world. Personally, I blame Gossip Girl (though "blame" might be a strong word... She knows I can't stay mad at her. XOXO!) for bringing them into the spotlight so much, but one has to admit they have a certain charm. They're a great little accessory, and they can add a touch of class to your ensemble in almost any season as long&nbsp;<a href="https://www.sockbin.com/store/women/knee-high-socks/c-12" target="_blank">as you put it together wisely</a>. They're not the most low-maintenance sock out there, though; there are a few cardinal (appropriate, considering the Catholic schoolgirl association) rules that you'll need to follow if you want to pull this look off and pull it off right.</p>
<p><img style="max-width: 100%; text-align: center; margin: 0 auto;" alt="" src="http://workstuff.us/Files/Content/woman2.jpg" />For a start, find a pair that's the right size for you. This means above all a pair that's not too tight around the top; no matter how slim you are, the woman has yet to be born who can look good while her legs look like a length of sausages in a butcher's window. The opposite - a pair of knee-highs that are too loose to fit you properly - is just as bad. They'll have you constantly (and we do mean constantly) readjusting their tops and pulling them, which will make you look not only childish and helpless but completely lacking in any kind of elegance or grace. Best case scenario, you're going to look seriously uncomfortable, and if you're not looking at ease, you're not looking good.</p>
<p>Second, remember that the whole "schoolgirl" thing is an association rather than a look that you're actually going for. That's a style for the bedroom, not for public spaces. So, to avoid looking like you're wearing that special costume you bought for your boyfriend's birthday, avoid pairing your knee-highs with any white blouses, preppy-type shoes or pleated skirts, especially the ones with tartan (think Scottish kilts) designs. We can't overstress it: these ensembles are all fun and more than a bit raunchy, but there's a time and place for them and it's not out on the town or at work.</p>
<p>Third, the association you're going for is "schoolgirl" rather than "schoolboy". For the sake of your femininity and to spare yourself the jeers and giggles of others, avoid wearing knee socks with flats. It's an entirely too boyish look no matter how well you think it suits you. Also, steer clear of sandals, especially those that have a lot of buckles and straps; It may seem like a good idea in theory, but the result will be a look that's entirely too thrown together and untidy. Finally, (and this one's important), know the difference between knee socks and tube socks; the only appropriate place to be wearing the latter is during gym class, and while you are going for a look based on that of a high school girl, it's the uniform rather than the P.E. gear.&nbsp;</p>
