Get Ready To Rock Some Socks.

Sunday 20 June 2010

So, don't worry about keeping that summer tan girls because long socks are coming back for winter, yey! Absolutely loads of F/W 2010 runways were pounded by models wearing socks of all lengths with their designer heels so you should start to plan for it hitting our legs very soon!

I put together a shortlist of some of my fave socks currently available now, to give us a head start in the style stakes before they get snapped up once the sun goes in :)

The cool US online store 80s Purple has a couple of ridiculously hot styles in their own 'Purple Label' range, check these out. 80s Purple also have REALLY reasonable shipping fees so fill your boots (literally this time).

I LOVE these knee high 'Headdress' socks, so on trend even now so these will take you nicely into autumn! £18.76 from 80s Purple.

Also, love these over the knee 'Tatters' pair, the pattern makes them look torn and laddered for that shabby chic look! £17.42 from 80s Purple.

Trasparenze are taking socks onto a sexier level, so sophisticated but super hot, check them out at The Trasparenze Euspira Knee High Sock is just £6.45 from UKTights, but looks much more expensive!

I am also loving their Anachis Over The Knee Socks, maybe not in this orange colour, but they also come in black, white, purple, blue and pink, all £12.95 from UKTights. It's the ruching at the back that I love, it takes the dodgy sexy schoolgirl look down a notch and turns it into a more fashionable look as we saw a lot of ruching on the catwalks for next season.

If you want something a bit girlier, New Look are doing these cutesy grey or cream Floral Knee Highs pictured below for just £3!!

And finally, American Apparel are appealing to our pretty pretty side with their Girly Lace Ankle Sock. At £8 a pair, and available in 7 colours (grey/white pictured), these are so versatile you could wear them with flat masculine brogues or girly dolly shoes!

So there you go, whatever your style there is a sock out there for you. I think I'll be mainly going with knee highs, and 80s Purple will be my first stop!
