Boot socks are often a neglected element in any wardrobe. Mostly a functional piece, it has faded into the background. Now the lowly accessory has been revitalized on runways and on the streets, and selections range from the dutiful pair for work as well as fashionable hosiery selections for wearing with sneakers, booties and shooties as well as stilettos and sandals.
Boot socks for work, hiking and other rigorous uses are available from Timberland, Gold Toe and other brands. Some styles for both him and her are cushioned for extra comfort and support. These designs are available in several colors, including white, gray, red, black, and multi-colored.
For a fashionable pair, Polo by Ralph Lauren, Lauren by Ralph Lauren, DKNY and others offer calf high socks, knee high socks and liners. Obviously, these look wonderful under your cowboy boots, equestrian boots and other styles, but the latest looks pair these with open toed stilettos, sandals and other dress shoes for an up-to-the-minute look. These shoe styles pair well with footless as well as footed designs.
Boot toppers and liners are available in fleece, knit, faux fur and other selections by designers like Betsey Johnson. Solid colors, polka dots, stripes, animal prints and other colors are available to match any shoe selections you want to wear them with.
These are one of the most affordable fashion accessories you can get. Having multiple pairs allows you to change the look of your shoes as well as your outfits as often as you wish. From practical to fanciful, you can create virtually endless possibilities with the available selections. Any pair of footwear is more comfortable when you wear the right hosiery to wear underneath.
A great new look, and a good way to stay extra warm in your dresses and skirts this year, is to wear boot socks over tights or leggings. Instead of putting away those fun, delicate skirts when the weather turns cool, layer them with warmer items and enjoy them well into the next season. Get an extra pair or two to wear with your rain galoshes and add some pizzazz to your rainy days. Choices include pink, purple, red, white, black and more.
