OOTD: Heels & Socks Trend

Fashion & Style Police Image

 

The first outfit post for this month of June is all about heels and socks. I love the fast pace world of fashion. Styles and trends move really fast, it is so exciting. I am feeling super confident this year, and going for riskier outfits. Outfits I won’t have even considered wearing before, I can’t wait to rock now. This outfit is one of them. I won’t have dreamt of rocking heels and socks in 2013, but I am loving the edgy, insane look (in a good way) in 2016. God knows what I would be loving in 2020. I hope this new adventurous side of me stays.

I love trying new styles and trends, to see if I can tweak it and make it my style. I have always wanted to try the heels and socks trend for as long as I can remember. I find the look so geeky and cool at the same time. The look actually reminds me of my high school days, with the heels and socks. It was kind of my uniform back then, but in different colours and design.

To create the heels and socks look, I went for this black Karen 70 Lace Knee-High socks by Solidea. It is knee-high, but I rolled mine down to show off some skin. This pair of socks is not just fashionable, it is also a compression socks. Very stylish, yet very effective. I have some holidays booked for the year, and I am looking forward to flying with this pair on.

Here is what Solidea has to say about this socks:

Lace knee-high with graduated compression. The unique pattern enhances sensuality and charm for a rich and luxurious effect. Combines with a more sober look for an outfit of great class. The preventive action of 10/15 mmHg graduated compression fights heaviness and swelling in the legs and counteracts venous insufficiency without impacting the elegant appearance and incomparable aesthetics of the lace. With Sanitized® hygienic function.

The heels and socks trend is also a smart way to stay warm on days too warm to have tights on but too chilly to go without.

Swimwear Trends For 2015

It’s that time of year where we start to crave a holiday. If you’re lucky enough to have already booked your next getaway, you’ve probably already turned your attention to swimwear.
From bikinis to swimsuits, there’s so many styles, designs and prints to choose from. To help you select the best option for your shape, we’ve enlisted the help of Danielle Kisby from leading lingerie and swimwear retailer, Bras Galore. She’ll provide her expert opinion on this season’s hottest trends.

Fringing
Popular in the 80s and 90s, fringing has re-emerged in time for summer 2015. Shorter fringed bikinis are great for adding subtle detail to your swimsuit, while longer styles can create a more dramatic look.
Speaking of the trend, Danielle said: “Channelling boho chic, fringing is one of my favourite trends this season. It’s great for minimising the appearance of a larger bust, as well as disguising those pesky cellulite-prone areas on the hips. A fringed bikini is the perfect alternative to heavily printed swimwear. Choose a plain option to remain subtly stylish.”
High-waisted
Favourites with everyone from curvalicious Beyoncé to athletic Taylor Swift, high-waisted bikinis are a popular choice this season. Offering more coverage than your typical string bikini yet oozing sexiness, the style is reminiscent of 1950s pin-up girls.
“A 1950s-style bikini is perfect for showing off those va va voom curves!” says Danielle. “The high-waisted bottoms are great for highlighting an hourglass figure, and are incredibly flattering across problem stomach areas.
“If you are blessed with a larger bust, choose a bra- or halterneck-style bikini top. These are much more preferable to flimsy string designs, which can offer little support. Ditsy prints like polka dots are an absolute must for this style. You can wear them year after year!”

Sporty
Sports luxe has been a huge trend for a few seasons now, but it seems 2015 is the year it really starts to dominate the swimwear market. Sports bra-inspired high-neck tops complete with mesh detailing are big news, as are bright block colours with contrasting black trims.
Danielle says: “A sports inspired bikini is perfect for lazy days in the sun and splashing around in the pool. However, the shape isn’t for everyone. While they are incredibly flattering for athletic and boyish shapes, the high-neck cut can make ladies with a bigger bust look top-heavy.
“If you do have larger breasts and you are considering this style, I’d advise choosing one with mesh detailing to reduce the coverage over your bust. That way, you can have the best of both worlds.”
Plunge swimsuit
If you’re looking for something a little sexier, choose a swimsuit with a deep plunge neck. While you may think you’re covering up in a bathing suit, the plunge neck is sure to grab attention.
Danielle comments: “Plunge swimsuits are great as they can be worn by women of any size. Suits that offer little support around the bust are best suited to women will smaller busts. If you have larger breasts, choose a style that offers additional support to prevent squashing and provide an extra lift.
“Because the plunge adds detail to the swimsuit, choose a classic Ibiza-ready colour like black, white or red. Team with a floppy sunhat for ultimate glamour.”
Which styles will you be hitting the beach in this summer?
