How to Style Boot Socks Two Ways

Boot Socks + Ankle Boots

Typically, when I think of boot socks, I imagine pairing them with classic riding boots. However, I’ve seen a ton of fashion bloggers and Instagram stars wearing a pair scrunched down with ankle boots. So unexpected and so cute! The key to achieving this look is to find a pair of socks that aren’t too thick and can be pushed down a few inches above your boots.

Boot Socks + Riding Boots

For a classic look, boot cuffs also look great with riding boots! The important thing to remember when styling your socks or boot cuffs with taller boots is to choose a pair that is long enough to peek above the top of the boot. This looks best with skinny jeans or leggings!

Thankfully, these adorable accessories are starting to hit gliks.com! If you’re looking for a little something extra to pair with your dresses, skinny jeans, and Piko sweaters this season, we’ve got you covered.

Once you grab a pair (or two), I’d love to hear how you style your boot socks! Are you stepping outside the box and wearing them with ankle boots? Or are you staying perfectly classy and pairing your boot socks with riding boots?

Standing Out With Stance Socks

 

StanceSocksAs we continue this unavoidable transition to Autumn throughout the US, it’s time for some highlights to help you stand out this fall. With a little help from Stance Socks, we can add that pinch of fashion everyone needs to their garb. I don’t know about y’all, but if I don’t get some double takes in my day, well… then I better be gettin’ them tomorrow.

 

As a brand, Stance is incredible. They saw a lacking in an item that had so much untapped potential. With their passion, they injected life into a product that had been over-looked, and in turn, created a movement of art and self expression. With creative directors like Rihanna and collections featuring Big Sean and Dwyane Wade, this brand surely has the industry on lock.

 

But for as rad of a company as Stance is, it really just boils down to the product. And for fall, these high quality socks are a must have in every way, and for everyone. With the weather cooling down (unfortunate yet true), their socks will keep your feet that perfect temperature both inside and outside. Now lets take a look at IMG_0092some of the essential looks.

Look 1: The Roll

For someone who wears pants everyday, rolling up your cuffs are an exceptional way to show off your sock game. You can adjust the height in order to fine tune how noticeable they are. But, let’s be honest, the higher the better when you’re rocking socks as rad Stance.

Look 2: The Jogger

Whether you’ve jumped into this trend or not, it’s time to up your jogger game… especially if you’ve got the socks for it. Joggers and socks are a match made in heaven. The elastic cuffs on these comfy pants allow you to show off your eccentric socks. As pictured to the left, joggers get the assist in adding that much needed spice to your fall clothing.

Look 3: Lazy Sunday

I don’t know about y’all, but when the week comes to an end… I NEED my lazy Sunday. Although, why would you ever sacrifice style for comfort when you don’t have to? With Stance’s already comfy socks, our PJ style joggers, and your coziest shoes, you can make the most of your Sunday.

Look out for these incredible socks in our stores too! We’ve got a wide selection including the Official NBA On-Court line (coming online soon) and soon to be released underwear…

It’s Back | The Essential Plaid Scarf

The Blanket Scarf

For the past few seasons, the plaid blanket scarf has been the must-have accessory for fashion lovers everywhere. Not only does it serve a functional purpose and keep you warm on those chilly fall days, but it also offers endless styling opportunities making it a versatile piece well worth the investment.

Plaid Blanket Scarf

 

You already learned how to wear the blanket scarf here, but in order to keep this trendy piece relevant in your wardrobe; you also need to know what to wear your plaid scarf with.

Outfit Inspiration

This outfit should be a staple in your fall wardrobe rotation for so many reasons. Not only is it practical for every day wear, but it is also requires minimal effort. Each piece offers versatility, so you won’t be limited in your styling options. I’ve chosen a pair of Flying Monkey jeans, a basic long sleeve thermal from Able, a killer navy blue Fate vest, and our plaid blanket scarf (of course). This outfit works because it is understated and will leave you looking put together. Also, the navy blue vest has a mixed texture that contrasts nicely against the colors in the plaid scarf.

Plaid Blanket Scarf and Vest

The Infinity Scarf

Equally as wonderful as the blanket scarf is the infinity plaid scarf. Let’s be honest, most of us spend an overabundance of time trying to turn our blanket scarves into infinity scarves anyway, so this new style is a Godsend.

Plaid Infinity Scarf

Outfit Inspiration

To style this plaid scarf, I’ve selected a military inspired jacket from Amuse Society, a neutral colored striped shirt from Ginger G, and the same pair of Flying Monkeys from the first photo (see, they are a versatile pant!). Mixing patterns like the stripes in this shirt and the plaid scarf is a huge trend right now. Don’t be afraid to take a risk and be a little more fashion forward when styling your plaid scarf.

Plaid Infinity Scarf Gotta have it? Both of these must-have scarves will be available (at a special price, yay!) on gliks.com starting Monday, July 13th.
