Socks are like boyfriends. ๐Ÿ˜‚

Thereโ€™s just something about brand new socks. Theyโ€™re fresh, clean and in the best shape of their lives. You canโ€™t pinpoint why theyโ€™re so comforting; could be the material, the pattern, or just how they feel on your feet. They just feelโ€ฆ right, like the cute guy you have a crush on.

But after a few months, things start to fall apart... ๐Ÿ˜‚

They let themselves go. They go out of shape. Some of them even embarrass you in public. We all know that feeling when you walk into a house party - just as youโ€™re about to be a good guest and take off your shoes (in comes horror movie soundtrack) - YOU HAVE A HOLE IN YOUR SOCK! ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

Socks are constantly around our lives as an essential item of clothing but in the recent years, theyโ€™ve gained recognition as a fashion accessory.

The coolest sock company in New Zealand, Longblack, who specialises in high-end socks for men, has launched a new range of socks for girls named, Flatwhite. (Cute!) I got this amazing opportunity to work with Longblack and style the Flatwhite range! Let me show you how socks can be worn in a fashionable way, or more specifically, in the โ€˜Vikkipediaโ€™ wayโ€ฆ ๐Ÿ˜‚

Bang Bang Bang - wearing socks the โ€œstreet styleโ€ way

Wearing sneakers without socks will never go wrong. 

But wearing them with a pair of cute socks could really lift your look - adding edge to the outfit, making it more interesting. 

This first look is a 90โ€™s street style outfit inspired by the arcade games!

I styled these cute polka dot socks from the Flatwhite range with a pair of Old Skool Vans but theyโ€™ll work well with any sneakers.

As if 'single denim' isnโ€™t enough, I decided to 'suit up' in my Canadian Tuxedo. ๐Ÿ˜‚ I wore my denim jacket as an off-the-shoulder top and accessorised with the blingest choker from Ruby and a camo hat from Zara. I wanted to dress as a gamer girl so I wore denim shorts but the socks will look great with cropped jeans too. 

Motto of the outfit (and my life in general): Donโ€™t take it too seriously! ๐Ÿ˜‚

Project Runway - wearing socks the โ€œhigh-fashionโ€ way

I used to think wearing socks with open-toe shoes is like the Trump administration colluding with Russia โ€“ itโ€™s a no-go zone. But socks and heels are so IT right now. Iโ€™ve decided to stop worrying about what people think and start rocking this style trend!

For the second look, I styled these edgy chevron socks from the Flatwhite range with a pair of leather open-toe heels from Ruby. The bow on these shoes goes well with the pattern but any strappy heels could work with these socks.

I rocked an Acne Studios oversized kimono dress and a gold mirror clutch from MM6 to create a runway look. To adorn the plunging neckline, I wore my favourite Ingot Choker from Captve.

If the fashion runway doesnโ€™t find me, Iโ€™ll just create one for myself โ€“ in the carpark! ๐Ÿ˜‚

Home Sweet Home - wearing socks at home

Auckland weatherโ€™s temper is getting worse day by day, just like mine! ๐Ÿ˜‚ Nothing quite fixes the shitty mood brought on by the shitty weather than a pair of comfy socks when youโ€™re bumbling around at home.

For the last outfit, I styled these cute 3-toned socks with a sweat tunic from one of my favourite Japanese brands, Undercover.

My new favourite accessories are these 90โ€™s serial-killer-inspired frames with non-prescription lenses. ๐Ÿ˜‚ Sometimes you want to look cute for yourself, even if no one else is watching!
