Styling Your Winter Boots Comfortably

Winter is the time of year when you must pull out those winter coats and stylish boots. You might be wondering how to style your boots with your outfit and what socks would complement them. What is wonderful about fashion is it is all about expressing yourself while being comfortable. A rule of thumb for styling your boots is the height and style of the boot. Once that is established and you’ve found the perfect outfit, you are now ready to select the appropriate socks. Draw from the following styles and color coordinate to your best ability: dress socks, over the calf socks, and over the knee (OTK) socks. One last thing before you learn more about how to style winter boots: some boots and outfits will warrant your socks to be shown, while others are best with no-show socks.

Dress Socks

You want to stand out at work and want to find the perfect dress sock for your winter boots. Believe it or not, there are a variety of boots available that can be improved in appearance with dress socks. Should you want them to peek out, make sure it matches the color of your outfit. The style or color won’t matter, however, if they are hidden from sight. Slide into our In A Garden – Baby Alpaca & Bamboo Bootie/Dress Socks for the perfect ankle boot look.

Over-the-Calf & Knee-High Socks

Let your socks shine! These types of socks match an outfit best when you’re wearing short or medium height boots. Over-the-calf and knee-high socks are perfect for when you want to be both warm and stylish. Pair with a skirt or romper for a stylish winter look for any occasion.

No Show Winter Bootie Socks

We all love the look of bare ankles with booties, but in the winter, brrrrr! These socks are padded to insure that your feet (and you) stay at your warmest even when flakes fly, wicking moisture and keeping you cozy. Better still they go with everything because they don’t show. Keep your feet warm and your booties sweet smelling with these Quarter No Show Bootie Alpaca Socks and your feet will thank you.

This is the fun part of completing an outfit! Bright colored boots will match best with grey or dark colored socks while dark colored boots will match best with bright colored or white socks. We recommend pairing black ankle boots with bold socks like the ones seen above. Having a pop of color with a cute peak of lace will surely make your outfit stand out.

Why Wear Boot Socks

This style has been coming back with a bang so now is the time to elevate your own wardrobe. Not only will you be warm in the winter when you wear wool socks or fuzzy socks, but you’ll look even cooler than you already do. Short booties with a tiny bit of socks showing can be flirtatious and stylish. Knee high boots with even taller socks can also give the appearance of confidence and style.

You don’t necessarily have to follow this guide to the max. These are just suggestions to help guide you and give you an idea of what to look for when upgrading your wardrobe. It can get very cold during the winter months and you don’t want to suffer to look amazing. Dress appropriately and warmly, wherever you are. Keep that in mind when choosing the socks to go with your boots. Most of all, have fun when discovering new looks and don’t feel obligated to follow what everyone else is doing.
