2010 Fall/Winter Fashion Trend: knee or thigh high socks

Normally a humble accessory that most women hide, SOCKS turned out to be very popular on the Fall/Winter 2010 runways. However, it goes without saying that not all socks are all off a sudden fashionable ;)
To compliment your 2010 wardrobe consider investing in some of the following styles:
♥ Knee high socks
♥ Over the knee socks
♥ Thigh high socks

This season, socks can be the ideal way to winterize your favourite skirts, dresses or shorts. Over the knee socks are just as good casual as they are dressy. Perfect with your favourite boots and shorts, skirts or baggy dresses or even more perfect when the night comes with towering heels and fitted dresses.

Here are some simple pointers to get the thigh high socks and knee high socks fashion trend right:
♥ Wear your knee-high or over-the-knee socks under tall boots, adding extra warmth and a little color flair to the top of your boot. It is okay for socks to stick up over the top rim of the boot, just make sure the color or pattern of your socks coordinates with the rest of your outfit.
♥ Wear knee-high and over-the-knee socks with short dresses, shorts, and skirts. However make sure your clothing doesn’t overpower the socks, creating a large cluster of fabric. The hem of your clothing piece should also not go below the middle of your thigh.
♥ Wear knee high and over-the-knee socks with heels or boots. Taller boots whether UGG style or leather look trendy with socks underneath. Closed toe heels or open-toe heels can be worn carefully, giving the trend a more polished and girly look.
♥ Don’t wear short or bulky socks. Bulky socks were in style in 2007 and styles seldom repeat themselves quickly. Go for tight-fitting socks.
♥ Try and experiment knee-high or over-the-knee socks with leggings. Leggings that are sheer and/or patterned can add warmth and a whole new look.
♥ Don’t go for the school-girl look!! Avoid pairing socks with plaid skirts :p

♥ Whether you have big or small legs, knee-high and over-the-knee socks can compliment your bone structure. People with bigger thighs should wear socks just below the knee for a smaller-thigh look, while those with smaller thighs can wear over-the-knee socks to highlight their small thighs. Try both styles on to see what you like best!

What do you think of this trend? I love it :) I picked up some woolen knit over the knee socks when I was in London so thought I’d share a quick OOTD of how I wore my over the knee socks yesterday :)

Later that I went into the city and was just blown away by all the lovely Autumn colours!
So just had to get my camera out to take some photo’s:
Beautiful right? :) Are all the trees in autumn colours where you live? xoxo

Sardinia #

Hey my lovelies, 
I have safely returned from the beautiful island of Sardinia, back to the (freezing cold) that is the Netherlands. Luckily, while on holiday we were blessed with fabulous autumn weather; sunshine (however sometimes a little windy)..and temperatures between 15-20 degrees! We explored mainly the northern part of the Island and visited the main towns of Alghero, Sassari, Olbia, Palau and the Costa Smeralda region. Sardinia is definitely a beautiful part of Italy and it was nice to visit out of the main season because areas weren’t crowded by thousands of tourists. Definitely a place I’d recommend you visit, if you ever get the chance :) 

 Below a selection of pictures from my trip (click to enlarge) This holiday was definitely also a great time for me to reflect on “what’s next” and now I am feeling all positive and motivated again to kick start this next phase of my life! :) xoxo
