Our ankles crave them and our outfits need them. No longer are they afterthoughts on chilly mornings, socks are a necessity this A/W, helping us pick up fashion points here there and everywhere.
From colour pop knee highs to cosy over the knee socks, we can account for every occasion. With London Fashion Week only a few weeks ago, and the party season just round the corner, now is the time to get sock savvy with a little help from us.
Now, starting with patterns…
Perhaps a little backlash from last season’s loud and brash prints, traditional patterns are having a moment this A/W. Heritage seems to be the buzzword with gorgeous Argyle knee highs and warm ribbed socks favoured by
editors and stylists alike.
Glamour shows us how elegant an over the knee sock can be with a beautiful Argyle print.
Now the designer socks featured are not exactly purse friendly, so here at MyTights we have found a cheaper but just as classic alternative. The Pamela Mann Argyle Over Knee socks are a modern take on the timeless pattern with a high cotton content to keep your legs happy throughout the day. The guilt free price tag only makes it easier to invest in both gorgeous colours.
As for the colour code this season…
Colour pops and colour blocking is big this season, and one of the easiest ways to get involved is through your tights and socks. Choose the right shade and it can take you from day to night effortlessly. ELLE reveals how simple it can be with our coloured socks. The length is completely up to you, but however high (or low) you go, make sure your colour stands out.
Wear the Transparenze Monique Ankle Socks in the Arancio shade for tangerine clad ankles, or go for a subtler Rosa Antico colour for a romantic feel.
If you’re after a bit more coverage, choose the Cinzia Knee Highs from Transparenze. The purple Prugna, plummy Melanza or forest green Olivia are all colours of the moment and worn under knee length skirts or black shift dresses, they are the quickest way to inject colour into your day.
Graced with lace…
Although the temperatures may be dipping, fishnet and lace anklets are still as popular as ever. With a feminine charm and allure by the bucket loads, we can see why. Following on from his show at LFW, the Mark Fast anklets are set to be a success this season. Chose from with the Fast at Jonathan Aston Honeycomb or Scramble anklet for socks with a twist, appropriate foot attire for a glamorous evening out.
