Ode to some Socks


I'm well aware that we are now January 2011, that magazines are all already looking at summer & that it won't be long before all the Autmn/Winter 2011-2012 shows. However I shall just squeeze in this one post, just because I can't miss the opportunity to mention one of my favourite items from my winter wardrobe.
Yes, the title of this post is not a lie, I am indeed talking about socks.
And the ones in question (from American Apparel), have already made an appearance here.



Thigh-high socks were in a number of Winter 2010/2011 shows including Christian Dior & Vanessa Bruno. Both collections went for completely different looks: with Dior socks were part of frilly, intricate outfits whereas with Vanessa Bruno they participated in creating a much more simple & basic effect.
In other words one should never underestimate the role of socks in an outfit, and I hope that thigh-highs shall reappear in next winter's collections as my ones are so warm & cosy that I'd welcome any opportunity to wear them again.
