This Fashionista is rocking the trend of boot socks; wearing socks higher than one’s boots has become a fashion phenomenon and has been seen all over the runway this past year. Boot socks create a very bohemian look, which is very relaxed and free-spirited. Boot socks are not only fashionable, but functional as they keep you warm in the colder months. Almost every college girl has their go-to pair of leather boots, so incorporating some high socks into that look is super easy.
While boot socks look fabulous on bare legs, they also look great layered up with leggings, jeans and tights. Boot socks look great when they are worn in neutral colors like black, grey and taupe, but are even better when worn in bright colors with fun designs as demonstrated by our Fashionista in the photo above.
These socks look great with combat boots, rain boots and riding boots, but the tricky part is making sure the length of the sock looks good with the length of your boot. For example, when wearing mid-calf boots, go for knee high socks and when wearing knee-high boots, wear over-the-knee socks.
If you need help finding some good pairs of boot socks, I’ve got a couple suggestions for you! If you have Hunter rain boots, I would definitely recommend purchasing the these Hunter socks that go with the rain boots. They fold right over the boot, and add a lot of pizaz. For regular leather boots, add these Free People Vintage Sweater Tall Socks.
