Sock It Up This Fall

Socks are not going anywhere, sported on the runway and by Alexa Chung since last Fall and Spring, it is still going to be a big hit this season. Think about it, socks really are quite an effective an economical way to update a look.

First off we have the ankle socks, sported in the Marc by Marc Jacobs Fall 2010 show, the socks in a way reinforces the brand with fun, flirty and young elements. I think it is also incredibly versatile too, take a look at the ankle sock demos by J. Crew. Pair it with your favorite platform sandals and it's a whole new look! However, on a side note, not every colour goes well unless with amazing legs.
