What Kind of Socks to Wear with What Shoes, Here’s the 411.

THE SOCKS TO WEAR WITH…

If you google “what kind of socks to wear with”, what comes up in the blank is every kind of shoe and boot under the sun – Vans, Chuck Taylors, booties, duck boots, cowboy boots, Birkenstock. But, that kind of makes sense when you think about it. Each kind of shoe does have a specific kind of sock that works best. And when you’re wearing the “wrong” one,  it just looks weird – either too much or too little of it shows. And just like the wrong shoe can throw off an entire outfit, so too can the wrong sock and shoe pairing.

But never fear, the TWC team is here to help. When we wrote about the essential undergarments a woman needs in her lingerie drawer, we received reader suggestions that a post on socks was needed – ask and you shall receive people!! So, we came up with a list of the socks that are good to keep on hand. What was once a somewhat boring staple can now be a fashionable accessory to your outfit. And, what used to be a fashion faux-pas has turned into one of springs hottest must try items because the rules have slightly changed. (We’ll show what we’re talking about.)  But, in reality most of us aren’t going to wear them in any other fashion (no pun intended) outside of function. So, at least if you’re wearing socks, wear them right.
