Sock Fashion on the Street

7 Apr

I hate to say it, but I honestly can’t remember where I got these great photos from, however they are great examples of innovative sock fashion on the go and I had to post them.

I think they’re from the fashion section of some publication surrounding New York Fashion Week S/S 2012. It’s my own sloppiness, I know, but if you happen to know where these appeared, let me know so I can give credit where credit is due.

Can I get some mustard with that?

17 Oct

For the longest time, I avoided the color yellow. I subscribed to the belief that it would wash out my pale skin and emphasize my lack of tan.

Then I discovered a pair of mustard shoes which opened the door to an exciting dijon-tinted world and there’s no going back. I find it instantly improves one’s mood, makes any outfit more interesting and is definitely one of my favorite colors for socks…among other things.

Rihanna: a sock lover to the core

28 Sep

Despite her little tiff with an Irish farmer this week on the set of her new video shoot, pop star Rihanna has a unique and wonderful sense of fashion and is an avid lover of socks. Her clothing may sometimes be revealing, but her style is always fresh and playful!

Love this shot below from her video “Only Girl in the World.”

Splendid Photographer: Alexandra Grablewski

17 Sep

I’ve been busy this week but had a chance to check out one of my favorite blogs Decor8 and happened on the website of a fantastic New York photographer named Alexandra Grablewski. Her shots have a clean, whimsical innocence about them that I love, not to mention that the sock photographs in her portfolio automatically make me feel cozy and warm. If you the chance, check her portfolio out online.

Socks by the Seaside: Mulberry Spring/Summer 2012

2 Sep

Though fall is approaching, I’m already looking ahead to Mulberry’s Spring/Summer 2012 pre-collection. Inspired by the British seaside, the designs are a little prim, definitely playful and paired with adorable ankle socks. A good example of just how versatile a few pairs of well-chosen socks can be on a summer holiday.

With back to school season just around the corner, it’s worth considering how sock fashion contributes to a favorite fall look – school girl chic.

Wildfox Knows How to Rock Our Socks for Fall

25 Aug

I was blown away by Wildfox Couture’s Fall 2011 Lookbook. Not only are the socks sexy and feminine, but they pulled their inspiration from vintage t-shirts, groupie allure and the romanticism of pure rock n’ roll. There’s something so playful, innocent, and yet extremely bad about these images. LOVE!

Two other non-sock images that I adored…
