Socks are a bonafide fashion trend for the year 2010.They are not merely a uniform accessory anymore but have gained center stage worldwide. Not only do they add a new dimension to the outfits but have a great utility as they allow us to transform our summer outfits into outfits appropriate for winters.
Socks of various colors, textures and lengths are very widely used in Tokyo as a fashion accessory.Any outfit looks incomplete without adding a pair of socks or stocking to it. You want to dress up cute, sexy or elegant ...these socks help you make your own fashion statement
In the picture below , I am wearing check Knee high socks under my boots for one of my shoots.
Below are a few more of my pictures wearing high socks. I either wear them to add some style or color or when its getting too cold outside.One thing I love about them is that you can team it up with almost everything such as shorts , skirts or even jeans and wooh! it changes the whole look.Dont they look so sheek and chic and still they are so inexpensive. Also ,I dont need to go shop for more boots this winters.I can wear the same colored socks as my stilettoes and they would look like boots.
You can take a look at this video on a few of my high sock styles -
In the video,I am wearing high socks over sheer black stockings as this looks really trendy and prevents from the cold weather. You can also wear these stocking when you haven't had the time to visit a beauty parlor :P or you just dont feel like exposing you legs ( as it can happen in India at times if you are walking down the streets! )
I love the furry socks. They are so adorable and when I wear them they just tend to make my thighs look thinner or atleast I feel that ways. I agree that the white fur ones in the video did look too loud but nonetheless they are so cute...just like cotton fur balls.
In the second style in the video I am wearing leg warmers.They are the chunkier knit versions ideally to be worn in winters .So this time you wouldnt need to pack your summer outfits when winters arrive...just pick up a few leg warmers and stockings.
This is one trend which is gaining momentum worldwide.In India,I dont see it that much but i think it will surely pick up pace.
