6. Leather Socks

Leather and winter go hand in hand. Although we didn’t see many designer socks in leather, we felt they need to be mentioned in the fashion socks. Valentino’s classic black leather socks paired with black embellished pumps is a timeless combination for any girl during winter. Wear them with LBD or a midi dress. Also, complete the look by sporting leather gloves.

7. Furry Socks

Fur is yet another winter element that cannot be ignored in the world of fashion (we recommend faux fur, always). Bright colored socks with fur trimmings are something you totally need to try this winter. Pair them with pumps or even metallic sneakers and a matching bag with fur trimmings. I can imagine applauding you already!


8. Mesh Socks

Mesh socks were super stylish. Though we saw mesh socks in the classic color black, we would love to see more bright colors like neon pink, green, yellow and orange. Imagine candy color socks paired with matching shoes with LBDs. OMG! I’m drooling!

Who loves bling?! Of course, metallics are always on top of any fashionistas list. But I’m not one amongst you. So, this is my least favorite fashion socks trend! Okay! Go ahead, make fun of my unblingy fashion choices! Gah! So, anyways, metallic socks are in trend and full metallic look is very much in!
