Style: sock boots

style trend comment

Style: sock boots | see all the picks at www.shoppingmycloset.com

As you’re prepping for the boot season, don’t overlook the current sock boot trend. The tight-fitting boot trend is distinct in its close hugging nature. Not only that, its length falls somewhere between the calf and ankle giving the illusion of a true sock. Their popularity is due to the silhouette they help create: a slimming effect. Pair it with your favorite legging to create the look of extra long legs. Or, pair them with your crop pants to extend your wear when the temperatures drop.

1. Burgundy velvet sock boot {only $34 & comes in 2 colors}

2. Green stiletto sock boot {comes in 2 colors}

3. Pink {literal} sock boot {30% off & comes in 3 colors}

Given the amount of overcast with the fog rolling in and out of these parts, you would’ve thought it was fall already. Nope, just typical San Francisco weather. It’s not surprising the grey skies have me planning fall outfits already. Leggings are my go to during the Fall season. I’m very particular about what leggings I buy: they need to fit well, not be see-through, and not stretch out during wear. I’m glad to say these leggings met all the criteria (even after washing!). The midrise is perfect for keeping everything in place and the off-center zipper doesn’t add additional bulk to the waist line. Plus, the stitching along the side makes the legging seem much more expensive than it is. Definitely leaning towards getting the grey and navy versions as well!
