Socks are a great necessary accessory to a casual outfit. While you wear socks to pair with boots, that is not only a practical way to keep your leg warm through the colder months any more but is now a all-weather favorite in style. To add a stylish and fun look with the combination, there are so many different styles of boots and socks that can make many possible looks when it comes to combining the two.
As a general rule of thumb, taller boots work best with knee or over-the-knee socks, while shorter socks pair well with ankle boots or booties. However, if you want your socks to show, you’ll need some pairs that are slightly higher than the height of your boots. For example, because ankle boots tend to shorten your legs on their own, you can pair them with a tall sock scrunching around the top of boots that can add some volume to the lower leg. Likewise, for the higher boots, Knee-high socks go for mid-calf boots, over-the-knee socks for knee-high-boots, and extra high thigh-high socks for over-the-knee boots. If you want to go for cuffed or rolled pants or jeans, remember to style your socks sitting right up against the cuff. When you’re wearing leggings or skinny jeans, try tucking them into ribbed or chunky socks and pair with a pair of hiking boots for a rugged-chic style. One of the interesting parts about this boots-and-socks trend is adding even more layers so that can get a chilly and cute look. While wearing a dress or skirt, you can layer wooly socks over opaque tights, then pair them with ankle boots. Moreover, don’t be scared to make a statement. Whether it’s with a bright color, contrasting neutral, or sheer pattern, socks are an easy way to break up single color or one-note outfits.
