I have found over the past year a love for the over-the-knee sock!
I am aware that this has been an in-and-out trend for quite some time now, but never thought I’d give a go at it. Eventually I did, and I have come to love it. The way the sock covers your leg just leaving some of your upper bare skin to show. It has a touch of elegance yet still manages to look sexy in an off-putting way. And of course black is always a smart choice to go with; since it’s slimming.
I would suggest wearing these socks over a pair of textured tights but you can always just go with bare skin. You could match it up with a pair of shorts but I prefer to take a different route and put it with a long shirt and sweater/cardi. Either way looks cute.
For shoes, I would suggest something subtle so as to make the sock stand out and something that doesn’t really go past the ankle. You don’t want to look like you have to many layers on the leg; it defeats the purpose of a slimming leg.
Try this chic look. You’ll love it!

Jewelry designers, Alex and Chloe, collaborated with Forever 21 to create a line of affordable jewelry. Their line was full of studs, crosses, and diamonds. Enough to make any fashion guru melt at the spot. Crosses being constantly in style, it’s always a good purchase to make. Whether it be a necklace, earrings, or a ring. I prefer black when it comes to jewelry because it tends to go with a lot of different ensembles and I always try to find unique pieces.
When collecting jewelry, it’s important to find pieces that represent your style. People really do notice it.
And remember, you can never wear too many rings!

The over sized chiffon button-up and tights are from American Apparel. The shoes are Clarks and the jewelry is from Forever 21.
I wear this chiffon button-up quite often. It is beautifully designed and fits the body like a dream. They way the fabric drapes and flows is just perfect. It's basic, so of course can go with anything.
I decided to start my blog with something that showcases my sense of fashion very directly. Basic, bold, and chic.
