The Wintertime can be so dreary and dark that sometimes our winter wardrobe also tends to become muted and somewhat depressing. Living in New York, come late November all I see on the streets is a sea of black coats, and that makes me so sad and depressed! Just because it’s Winter doesn’t mean we can’t dress cheerfully and infuse some color into our wardrobes. Now I know that not everyone is a color enthusiast like me, so one of the easiest ways to brighten up your winter wardrobe is through fun winter accessories, like these cute socks I’m wearing from Solmate Socks. These socks are not only super fun and colorful, but they are also so warm and cozy. They work for both a quirky winter outfit and to cozy up at home by the fireplace.
I love Solmate Socks because the designs are so whimsical and quirky that they put a smile on my face. Fashion should be fun and not taken too seriously, and Solmate Socks totally embraces that mentality with their mismatched, colorful socks. The socks are made in the USA from recycled yarn, making them super warm and eco-friendly. For a fun winter outfit, I chose the Adult “Venus” socks which are colorful but not too crazy, and matched them to a fuzzy dusty pink sweater and similar colored skirt. The key to pulling off these quirky socks is to match them to another part of your outfit or accessories that have similar colors. This helps streamline the outfit so that you look fashionable rather than tacky. For an even more colorful option that I would wear indoors, I like the Adult “Carnation” socks (pictured below), which has a million colors in it and is one of the original designs and a top seller. These are sure to brighten up any winter wardrobe!
For the rest of my outfit, I essentially built it around the cute Socks. I chose a skirt that basically looks like it could have been made with the socks, as well as vintage-inspired oxford heels from Royal Vintage. I was definitely going for a doll-like effect with this outfit, so the dainty shoes were the perfect touch. To complete the look, I chose a pear print Deux Lux handbag and big statement red ring.
