No more excuses! The days of mismatched black socks taking up valuable drawer space are gone. It’s time to rearrange and revamp your sock drawer, so consider this versatile pairing an important decision in pulling together your capsule wardrobe. Don’t hide these treasures in boots or under trousers – this is your time to embrace the chausette.
Where to start:
Think about your existing wardrobe and what colours and styles will work:
- Consider socks for all occasions, from walking the dog to a night out
- If your sock journey is just beginning go for some neutrals, block colours (burgundy, khaki and denim blue) and subtle patterns
- Line up your shoes – you will need different sock thickness and lengths to wear with trainers, brogues and boots
Here’s some more ideas on sock selection, style and outfit combinations.
Whether a brisk city walk or a country hill climb, comfort and warmth are key. An important sock choice for us – thick and long to tuck in your trousers, and believe it or not, colour is still a consideration even if Wilbur, Bear and Scout are the only admirers.
The Night Out
Pull out your favourite dress or outfit and pick out some socks that will complement your clothes or accessories. An opportunity to be a little more adventurous with your selection!
Thankfully, since lockdown, loungewear is not confined to the home. A great tip for selecting socks is to match them to your shoe colour. These green Marl socks are a perfect paring with Nikki’s fluffy slides.
Trainers are an everyday staple for us; even in winter, socks are always on show and need some thought. White trainers make for an easy pairing. A hint of orange in these socks pulls the whole outfit together.
A Working Day
There are occasions when the boys, dogs and muddy fields don’t feature in our day – an opportunity to wear a dress. If, like us, the thought of tights and a low hanging crotch are not for you, then give long socks a try. Keep to a subtle tone that works with your outfit.
Any time; Any place; Anywhere…
There aren’t any rules for the glitter sock, just add fun. Go ‘full on’ dress up or add a bit of sparkle to your everyday. We’re big fans, and every drawer should be home to a pair.
