Knock their socks off: boot socks you'll want to show off

From chunky sweaters to luxe faux fur, fall 2011 is all about texture…right down to your hosiery. And as trends go, it couldn’t be easier to adopt this look. You’re wearing socks anyway, so pick a truly great pair and let them peek above your favorite pair of boots! The trick is proportion for the perfect amount of slouch. Knee-high boot styles call for over-the-knee socks; ankle boots look best with mid-calf-height boot socks. Once you master that, the sky’s the limit. Riding boots, ankle boots, moto boots…go ahead and put a sock in it this season!
