Spring 2010 Fashion Trend No.2

High Knee Socks

This is one of my favorite trends:D
Whilst there'll be several styles of socks popular in 2010, knee high socks (and similar styles) will be one of the defining looks to work into your wardrobe. Best of all, they're transeasonal and will be perfect alongside a number of other Winter 2010 and Spring 2010 fashion trends.
To compliment your 2010 wardrobe consider investing in three predominant styles:
  • Knee high socks
  • Over the knee socks
  • Thigh high socks

How to style knee high socks & thigh high socks:
  • Pick the length wisely: they have to suit your body's shape.
  • If you've got big thighs, thigh high socks will draw too much attention to them.
  • Knee socks that finish below the knee may compliment your bone structure more than those knee high socks which finish above the knee. Try both styles on.
  • Knee high socks that cut off just below the knee are more likely to give you a slimmer look, as going only a short distance above the knee could result in socks that 'bulge' on your knee.
  • Thigh high socks provide a perfect alternative to exposed stay-ups from 2010's lingerie as outerwear fashion trend.
  • If you're short, knee high socks that cut off below the knee are best paired with a shorter hemline to expose more leg and, thus, imply greater height. The hem should be no lower than the middle of your thigh.
  • If you're in a colder climate then knitted socks might work for you. But avoid chunky and overt knitted socks: they were last a fashion trend back in 2007, and trends seldom repeat themselves so quickly.
  • Avoid pairing knee high socks with tartan and plaid skits unless you can otherwise avoid the school girl overtones. The Gossip Girl look for girls is fast becoming a faux pas.
  • Don't be afraid to layer. Knee high socks and over the knee socks worn over sheer, patterned stockings can add a whole new dimension to an outfit.
  • Nor should you be afraid to colour and texture, particularly if you want the socks to be a focal piece of your outfit
Now some Eye Candy!!:


Sandals + Socks
Another Trend i was dying to talk about was the Sandals+Socks and this is because as everyone(i guess) knows, i draw fashion sketch and stuff so i drew one that had sandals and socks and one of my classmates said like ewww nobody would wear that.. that is soo not fashionable.. and i was soo pissed that i told her In fact honey they wear this and FYI ugly shorts and abercrombie shirts are no longer considered fashionable! haha i felt soo good with my self i mean who does she think she is? ahah well anyways i think i was i little mean but WTF? ahah seriously?
OH i was forgetting something.. i just wanna make a HUGE statement... this fashion trend ISNT for men!!!.. oh so now that we make that clear.. i guess you want some recommendations?
  • First of all ALWAYS use heels..flats sandals looks so similar to men's using sandals+socks...
  • Black, white and gray are the usual colors but I encourage people to uses colorfull one to pop out a colorless outfit.
  • Well, there aren't to many "rules" for this fashion trend.. just have fun and be a little more open because at first I was doubtful but then I admitted to myself that actually it looks pretty good!
Now more Eye Candy!!

Hello Laura,
I met this blog by chance ,That cought my attention was that a girl with 16 years and what a world! and you wrote you have to move out when you turn your 18 because this world (Barranquilla ) isn't too big for you! Another thing was that how you added sound to your blog, I liked a lot: " The show is about to start , The show is about to start" so nice!
Take care!
