Boot Socks Times Two

Boot Socks Times Two

Last week, a reader e-mailed me a question about boot socks. Usually when one reader is brave enough to ask something, other inquiring minds want to know.

Alison, you mentioned that you wear boot socks a lot in the fall and winter. I love this look but am just not sure how to pull it off. Can you show some ways to wear them with different types of boots? – Jessica

I’d be happy to, Jessica! Boot socks are one of the staples of my fall and winter wardrobe. They add a cozy layer of warmth and a fun and fashionable touch to a lot of different looks. Today’s post features a style remix starring No nonsense Rugged Boot Socks worn two ways.


1. Boot Socks with Ankle Boots

The key here is in the scrunching. Make sure your socks are long enough to be able to scrunch a few inches above the boot without being too bulky.




2. Boot Socks with Riding Boots

Length is key with this look too. You’ll want to choose a sock that’s tall enough to peek out above your riding boot. This look works best with skinny jeans or leggings.




In her e-mail, Jessica also asked me where I buy my boot socks. The pair that I’m wearing for today’s remix is the Rugged Boot Sock from No nonsense. You can get them at the stores we shop at most, including grocery and drug stores, or at The color of these boot socks is very on-trend for fall and goes with so many other autumn hues. No nonsense has several different styles of boot socks including Cable Knit, Sleek, Over the Knee and Fair Isle Boot Socks. I flip for anything Fair Isle!

No nonsense has a lot more to check out than socks to help you look on trend this fall. If you’re looking for something to pair with your tunics, long sweaters and dresses this fall, their collection of new fabrications and patterns including Denim and Ponte Knit Leggings, Sweater Tights and Fashion Tights in bold prints will be perfect.
