Guest Post: Fall Hosiery

Hi, everyone! It’s Kaleigh, from Every College Girl. Sherin has been nice enough to let me do a guest post here, so I picked my favourite fall obsession: hosiery! I’m kind of a hosiery addict. Every since I bought my first pair of heart-print, white knee-highs in ninth grade I knew I liked to mix up the typical sock style. Luckily for me (and all you fashion-forward fabulous girls) unique hosiery has been popping up over and over on the runways. Here are three style options for this fall, there’s something for everyone:

Knee-Highs

We’ve seen knee-highs before, and if you went to a school that required uniforms, you might even been cringing right now. However, this fall’s knee-highs stay chic and sassy by the way you pair them with the rest of the outfit. Stick to dark neutrals, like black, grey, and navy. Skirts should be short enough to show some leg between the top of the sock and the hem of the skirt, but not so short that you’re bordering on “sexy school girl” Hallowe’en costume. To further avoid a school-girl look, steer clear of skirts that are ruffled or pleated and, please, no plaid. Instead, a nice fitted skirt in a contrasting neutral like grey or camel (a hot colour this fall) will fit the bill. Or, mix it up with a pair of high-waisted structured shorts. Avoid collared or polo shirts on top and instead opt for a floaty vest and fitted tank. You can even pair them with a floral or solid dress with a detailed belt to cinch in the waist. By mixing up your basics with a pair of knee-highs, you can take your outfit to a whole new level for just a few dollars.
 

White Tights

Even though you’re skipping whites with the knee-highs, there’s plenty of room for white hosiery this fall. The key: pay a couple extra bucks to get a truly opaque pair, in order to avoid looking like you just missed getting a tan this summer. You can stick to basic nylons or, when the weather gets cooler, opt for a chunky, textured wool pair. Wear under a fitted sweater dress with a pair of killer boots to pull the whole look together. Stick to boots with brown or lighter tones, as black can be too starkly contrasted. Add a statement necklace for a little shine and interest. Mix it up with a leather jacket when the mercury really drops to add some extra texture and warmth.

Socks With Heels
 
No need to run out and buy a whole new sock drawer, you can use what you already have in a new way to keep up with hosiery trends this fall. The cutest way to rock heels this fall is with a geeky pair of dark socks. The secret is to keep it short, to avoid looking dated. Black is the best for a beginner, but if you’re more daring and have the confidence, you can start rocking beige, grey, even white. An open-toe heel can be in just about any colour for this look. I like feminine colours to downplay the menswear feel of this style. Pair with a pencil skirt, bandage skirt, or dress (pants hide the effect and shorts can be too boxy and masculine). Top with a bright, feminine blouse for a mix of J.Crew and street chic that’s the perfect blend for this fall.

I´d like to try that ¨socks with heels¨ look especially with open toed sandals.I think it would be perfect to keep my feet from sliding down because I have small feet. lol!

I luv knee high socks and my bfriend luvs when I wear them, lol!! I can't remember the last time I ever wore white tights, maybe I will give it a try, it's not much different from white leggings and I've worn those within the past two years. Now, the socks with heels thing... it's not my style but I recently saw another blogger pull it off. She looked fabulous :)

Tanvi said...

Loving the second look a lot. I like hosiery! It feels soft and cozy against the skin. Perfect for fall when it not too cold, YET! I love the thigh high socks too!!

Omygosh, I am such a socks and tights girl. I love knee high socks and actually sometimes....I would wear them with ruffled skirts haha and probably would wear them with a pleated skirt if I had one (but man, those things are annoying to iron!) but you're right, it can definitely look a little schoolgirl-like!
