<img alt="" src="http://workstuff.us/Files/Content/women-socks.jpg" style="max-width:100%; text-align: center;margin: 0 auto;"/><span>It's a tough world out there for socks; they tend to be the least thought about and also the most under-appreciated piece of clothing there is, thanks mostly to the fact that people just don't think about them. Be honest, unless it's a formal occasion that demands a pair of nylon stockings or some other fine hosiery, how often do you or any ladies you know think about what socks you're going to wear beyond them being clean? I thought so. But socks can be a charming detail that augments and enhances your ensemble... they're underappreciated now, but with&nbsp;</span><a href="https://www.sockbin.com/blog/2016/06/how-to-accessorize-with-socks.html" target="_blank">the minimum of effort and a good sense of style</a><span>&nbsp;(which we know every woman has deep down on a primal level), it doesn't have to be that way. We don't have to be the slaves of Victorian ideals and keep our legs covered for the sake of decency or pretend to faint at the sight of an uncovered leg.</span>
<div class="post-content">
<p>In fact, upon digging a little deeper into the wonderful world of hosiery, you might find yourself a little overwhelmed. For those who, up until now, haven't given their sock choices much thought or attention, there's frankly a shocking amount of variety and different styles of dress sock out there for different occasions - I myself needed a stiff drink and a lie-down after my first exposure to the many prints, fibers and styles to be found just in the local clothing stores, let alone some of the more specialist shops and the online community (more on that last one later). So, to ease you into it a little bit, we're going to give you a few examples of the amazing fuzzy socks (and non-fuzzy socks too) for women that can be found out there with little to no effort, and on what occasions you might slip into them. If you make the right choice, that pair of socks might be the final boost that takes your favorite ensemble into the realm of the fabulous.&nbsp;</p>

<p>Having been featured prominently in fashion shows starting from 2007, it seems this relic of overly-expensive Catholic private schools has snuck its way back into the public eye. Helped in no small part by the success of high school TV shows like Gossip Girl, one sees them more and more often these days worn by women who've left their high school days behind and moved on to greener pastures. And they can indeed make for quite a fetching look if you combine them right. We recommend using them to compliment a semi-formal to formal ensemble, the kind of thing you might want to wear to work, for example, and of course with a skirt that will allow them to actually be seen. Avoid pleated skirts, though; as attractive as the actual schoolgirl outfit can be, it's also likely to be viewed as an inappropriate look for any woman to wear in the professional world and could cause some real problems and reflect badly on you with any boss. Save that look for those special occasions when your boyfriend has been a good boy and earned himself a treat. This also means avoiding white blouses and ties (though, honestly, when was the last time a woman had to wear one of those?) - a nice scarf will add to their air of sophistication, though, as will that gorgeous pair of heels you love to wear. In fact, always go with heels over flats in the case of knee-highs. The latter is a hallmark of girls' schools everywhere, and can even make you look a bit juvenile and boyish.</p>
<p>Finally, it's worth mentioning the importance of getting the perfect fit with knee-highs. Unlike thigh-high socks, with a pair of knee-highs, there'll be occasions when the tops are going to be clearly visible to everyone, and the last thing you want is to have the elastic squeezing the soft flesh of your legs so tight it comes spilling over them. On par with that, and maybe even worse, is wearing knee-highs that are too loose; you'll either spend every other second pulling them up into place or just give up and let them pool sadly around your ankles. Both the former and the latter make for another seriously unprofessional look - good luck getting anyone to take you seriously when you can't even put in the effort&nbsp;<a href="https://www.sockbin.com/blog/2016/06/what-your-socks-say-about-you.html" target="_blank">to make yourself look alert and presentable</a>. Make sure you spend enough time trying on your knee highs before you buy them to ensure that they're the perfect fit for your legs.&nbsp;</p>
<h2>FUZZY SOCKS</h2>
<p><img alt="" src="http://workstuff.us/Files/Content/women-socks3.jpg" style="max-width:100%; text-align: center;margin: 0 auto;"/>Women's fuzzy socks are a wonderful item for complimenting a casual (or not so casual, if you put it together right) look, and they have the added benefit of being super-comfy and keeping your feet warm in the colder weather. For that precise reason, they're maybe not the best choice of hosiery in the summer months (depending on where you live, of course), but where and whenever the weather allows for them, they can make an excellent addition to almost any look and allow your personal sense of fashion to shine through.</p>
<p>One of the best things about the fuzzy sock is its variety. They come in a such a huge portfolio of different colors, prints and patterns that there's literally bound to be something you'll like. Not only in stores, but also on the internet, that source of greatness; even a cursory search on Google or Amazon will turn up dozens of creative women's fuzzy sock designs that will blow your mind, and (more importantly) the minds of anyone who sees you flaunting them. One of our favorite looks for this kind of sock is to pair them with a nice pair of tights - keep the tights black (always in fashion and pleasantly slimming, also very easy to find and usually quite affordable), which will leave you free to contrast them with a pair of socks that burst with color or interesting patterns and add some character to the ensemble. Depending on how much your calves are covered by said tights, you may even want to pull your socks up over them - it'll draw even more attention and makes for a look very similar to that of ballerinas' legwarmers that goes very nicely with tying your hair in a bun and wearing a thick woolly sweater up top. The perfect way&nbsp;<a href="https://www.sockbin.com/blog/2016/04/wearing-funky-socks-dos-and-donts.html" target="_blank">to keep warm and look gorgeous in winter</a>.&nbsp;</p>
<p>This part of the article might be of limited help to some, but we have to show support for our sisters making a name for themselves in the competitive world of sports. Here, the right choice of socks could be the only barrier between you and a debilitating injury (or at least some really painful blisters). The right pair of sporting socks will keep injuries at bay by allowing your feet to run, pivot and flex in the way God intended them to, at the same time taking care of all the sweat that unavoidably is generated by any kind of physical activity.</p>

<p>If the sporty look is one that you enjoy on and off the field or track (or wherever your chosen sport is played), compression socks can be a nice addition to other sporty items of clothing. They're also great for practical reasons for any woman who spends a lot of time at the gym, especially doing things like cross-fit, Zumba, the treadmill or the Nordic track. We don't just work out to look great, after all, we want to look great while working out. There are a lot of different blends of fabrics including wool and synthetics (coolmax, acrylic, lycra, the list goes on) which can do a great job of protecting your foot and feeling comfortable, so do a little research before you buy to make sure you're getting the right sock for your needs. One thing we can tell you: DO NOT buy cotton. What works for non-sporting socks is sadly a terrible choice for strenuous physical activity, as cotton socks absorb and retain entirely too much moisture for any sane person's comfort. Avoid cotton like the plague, as even in blends it'll make for a sock that should only be worn for very short bursts of physical exercise and will wear out much quicker than a synthetic sock would; why put yourself through the trouble when there are much better options out there?&nbsp;</p>
<p>We couldn't resist putting this one in here, as it genuinely seems like an amazingly fun experience for those among you who are more creatively inclined, especially those who already know how to sew or knit. If you don't... Darn it, it's the perfect time to learn (see what we did there?)! You'll need a needle and thread, obviously, as well as a clothes iron and ironing board, fabric paint and fabric glue; the rest is entirely up to you and your imagination. Start with whatever color of socks you like - though we do recommend a thicker, winter-type fuzzy sock to begin with, as they're a bit more robust and forgiving when you make a mistake that needs to be unpicked (a mercy to anyone who, like me, is an amateur seamstress at best). Feel free to experiment with iron-on designs as well, they can be a lot of fun and sometimes make for a more professional look if you're doubtful of your artistic ability, and most crafts stores carry stencils that can easily be used for sock painting. Glitter, pom-poms, you name it, whatever catches your eye, try it out and see how it looks on your socks. Just be careful not to glue them to your skin - as tempting as it is to try them out right away, give the glue or paint (if you used either) enough time to dry before you put them on, and make an effort to hand wash them to reduce the chances of the machine chewing up and spitting out your lovely ornaments. One more thing for those less creatively inclined but still looking for that unique sock and look: our savior, the Internet, has got you covered. When you see some of the genuinely unique, hilarious and above all gorgeous designs to be found out there, you'll want to call in a few sick days just so you can&nbsp;<a href="https://www.sockbin.com/store/women/c-2" target="_blank">spend some extra time looking at them</a>.</p>
