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!
