When it comes to socks, there are two main categories: ankle socks and tall socks… and we’re equally obsessed with both. We are SO excited that fall is finally here because it is, hands down, the best season for socks – it’s cool enough to wear them every day, but still warm enough to show them off against bare legs!
We recently did a post about how to wear tall socks, and a couple of you left comments asking for a post about teaming tall socks with shoes. To answer your question – and to even give you a little more – we’re showing you our favorite sock-and-shoe combinations for both tall socks and ankle socks! Which of these combos would you rock?
Tall Socks & Shoes
A quasi-unexpected idea we love is teaming our favorite pair of tall socks with an open-toed shoe. We love using the Blakely Heel and Vintage Sweater Tall Sock for this – and scrunching the socks just a tad at the top for a little added dimension.
A great pair of lace-up black boots is definitely a fall necessity. It will look awesome with any type of sock – and any outfit, for that matter. We love teaming a pair of Lee Boots or Doc Martens with our Popcorn So Soft Thigh Hi to really achieve that fall feeling.
Ankle boots with a little heel like the Woven Saloon Boots shown above are a fun way to show off a detailed pair of tall socks like the Ingle Tall Sock. We love how textured this combination is – it’s so simple yet very impactful at the same time.
Ankle Socks & Shoes
Here we go with the black boots again – we can’t help it! We love the way the Brightly Twisted Ankle Sock peeks out of the top for a little hint of fun.
The Heathered Highland Boot Sock is one of our favorites. We can’t wait to wear it all through the winter with leggings, jeans, tights – you name it. We love paring them with a great ankle boot like the Hartland Vegan Boot and leaving the zipper down to show off the whole sock!
Our Woven Saloon Boots work just as well with ankle socks as it does with tall socks! We love the dainty, feminine feel of the floral Collection Ankle Sock mixed with the rougher, boyish detail of the boots.
