High and Low

I love trying out new things when it comes to dressing up.  That's why I love trends so much.  Trends are not all about wearing the latest and the greatest, but rather trends are a way for us to experiment with different styles and to explore the innovations of dressing up.  Today was the first time I tried wearing long socks with boots.


I've avoided this trend for a while now, simply because I didn't realize I had socks that were long enough.  But after seeing a girl from my school sporting this look, I was inspired to dig through my closet, and I happily found a pair of long tan socks that belonged to my mom.  I paired them up with my brown leather boots and a pair of leggings, and I was good to go!


This is a very cute trend, as well as practical.  It adds an extra layer, giving you a chance to prolong the use of your tights and leggings into those mild autumn days.  This isn't a particularly difficult trend to pull off, but I find that it looks better when only a small portion of the sock is visible.  If the boots are too short, or the socks too long, the proportions don't seem to work.



Some people love this trend, some people hate it, but I think it's fun to see your socks peeking out just a little bit.  Not only that, but it also gives people the illusion that you're an expert in the art of layering!

  3. I really like this trend; however, it seems to work better on taller women. Also, the outfit in the 2nd picture is super cute.

  12. This is funny for me, because I tried the same just recently and I loved the look. My favourite is the top photo (but it might be that I want to be by the sea...) I don't like it with shorts, too preppy, but with a soft long jumper or dress, just perfect...

  17. I love the pics and "j'adore" the long socks. They are very chic, on the right girls, and are more "personal" from my point of view than the low socks!

  23. The first photo is my favourite too. It's more along the lines of how I wore it.

    @Sherin, Sootjeelina, My Republic of Fashion: You must all give it a try! I have a feeling you won't hate it! It really is a fun trend.

    @Styleonthecouch: I agree. I think pairing it with shorts gives it a bit of that Japanese schoolgirl look, which I'm not particularly fond of. Dresses are the way to go with this.
