Twitter Sock Drive

We’re wrapping up our Twitter Sock Drive tomorrow. So if you haven’t already followed us on Twitter, please do so by tomorrow! For every follower we are giving a new pair of socks to Hannah’s Socks– a charity that gives to those in need!

Socks are one item that is desperately needed at shelters. Your follow will mean warm socks for someone in need. Read more about Hannah’s Socks here.

How to Wear Socks

High, dark-colored socks make the bottom part of your leg look skinnier, which is good. Unfortunately, this makes your thighs/upper leg look disproportionate. One way to balance the proportions is to pair the socks with a flouncy ruffled skirt that hits above the knee.

Another option is to wear the socks with a textured or pleated skirt, which also gives you a good dose of volume.

Layering a long jacket or trench that also hits above the knee at the same point as the skirt makes the socks look good.

If you wear over the knee socks, it looks cool to keep your outfit monochromatic – or at least keep the skirt (or shorts) and the socks in the same basic color range.

Wear the socks with loafers, high-heeled oxfords, or narrow plain sneakers like Keds.

Get the Look- American Idol Style

On American Idol, Katelyn Epperly had the over-the-knee socks style.

From the Sun Times:

• Katelyn Epperly, 19, West Des Moines, Iowa. She wowed at the Chicago auditions, and certainly looks the part of a star. She could have a career in pop music based on her curly blond hair alone. The kicky over-the-knee purple socks were a nice touch.
