Here at MyTights HQ, we’re lucky enough to get the first glimpse of all the latest hosiery styles, fresh from the production line of the leading brands in the legwear market. But with this week seeing the arrival of June, our attention has turned away from thicker opaques and onto hosiery that’s more appropriate for the warmer temperatures, namely socks! A far cry from being an unwanted gift from a great great aunt twice removed (or something like that), socks are emerging as a real fashion staple. Affordable, great for every season and capable of updating your whole look in a matter of seconds, the MyTights.com team thought we’d let you in on our style secrets, and show you how we’ve been decorating our feet in recent weeks!
Beginning with Customer Service & Operations Manager Nikki, who teamed a pair of grey knee high socks with black leather boots, and a dark grey dress. This is a fabulous example of how to wear knee high socks in a professional setting. Allowing you to reveal some skin while keeping the lower half of your legs happy, take a look at the Trasparenze Dora Wool Rib Over Knee Socks in Asfalto, rolled down for a similar look. Made with an impressive 65% cotton for a soft feel without overheating, these deliver everything you could possibly want in a knee high. Or if you’re feeling brave enough to branch out from the safety of black, white and grey, make a beeline for the Trasparenze Cinzia Knee High Socks, available in not one, not two, but 19 shades, from the basics all the way through to eye-catching hues of yellow and orange.
Next up we have Marketing Assistant Chantel who, armed with the knowledge that ankle socks are as popular as ever this season, opted for a fun summery ensemble. Pairing a floral pencil skirt with red Converses, for us the pièce de résistance are her frilly ankle socks, which are perfect for adding a girly touch to any look! For a similar style, opt for the Jonathan Aston Pretty Petal Sock, with an embossed floral design, attractive lilac hue and most importantly, scallop effect tops for a sweet style fix. Prefer something with a little more pattern? Be sure to check out the Jonathan Aston He Loves Me Socks, which are covered in a handwritten scroll, spelling out the famous ‘he loves me, he loves me not’ dilemma!
Now, something for the men! You might not know that MyTights.com stock a fantastic selection of men’s socks as well as women, as demonstrated by both Warehouse Assistant Jack (left) and Content Assistant Jack (right). Opting for the quirky collection from popular Swedish brand Happy Socks, Jack mark one chose to wear Happy Socks Men’s Dot Socks with casual trainers, skinny jeans and a sweater, while Jack mark two shows that patterned socks can add a splash of fun to office wear, wearing his Happy Socks Men’s Big Dot Socks with smart trousers and a pair of black brogues. If you’re keen to snap up the entire Happy Socks collection, what better way to save some cash than treating yourself to the Happy Socks Men’s Sock Gift Box, containing four pairs of combed cotton patterned socks for just £25?!
Last but not least we have Graphic Designer Jade, again choosing to add some colour to her look with some geometric socks. Wearing her patterned gems with white jeans and camel desert boots, socks like this are ideal for adding an instant style hit to everyday wear. If you’re a fan, check out the Charnos range, in particular the Charnos 2pp Flower and Diamond Socks. With one pair boasting an edgy diamond print and the other a sweet floral motif, these are perfect for keeping your feet feeling refreshed no matter the weather. Your sock drawer has never looked so fashion-forward!
