Like when we transition into spring, it’s time for socks that can do the double duty of cold mornings and warm afternoons, like the styles we have in our Autumn collection. The days are just going to get colder, so socks that can keep up the pace with the weather, like lightweight wool styles, are the key in autumn.
It’s also getting to be time for tights and leggings, to add that extra layer of warm when you need it. Maybe it isn’t quite cold enough for cotton-lined wool, but lighter weight, open-knit cotton tights like the Codori Crochet Tights will help you keep rocking shorts and skirts as the leaves start to fall. They’re available in two new colours too, Graphite and Espresso! We don’t have images for them yet, but they’re the same as the same colours in the Doris Crochet Trouser Socks.
A couple more transitional options and my favourite OTK trick for when the weather warms up after the jump!
Cozy OTKs that cuff well in wool or cotton are also the perfect thing. I wear a pair of over the knee socks pulled up when I walk to work and end up cuffing them to knee high by the end of the work day.
Now, I’ve got short legs so to get OTKs to cuff properly on me I have to double-cuff them, unless I want to slouch my socks—which I love, but doesn’t work for all styles. It’s a super easy trick that makes all the difference. (Ooh, these socks are in our new item queue and I LOVE them, so keep an eye on What’s New this month for sure!)
It’s also time for leg warmers and arm warmers! We’re already seeing people start to stock up—they’re great because you can layer them when it’s cold and take them off and pop ‘em in a pocket or purse if it warms up.
So how do you transition into fall? Is there a sock or style that you have to stock up on once the leaves start turning?
6 soxy thoughts:
Can I just say that the picture of the ivory Codori Crochet tights is somehow far more beautiful than it has any right to be? I mean, if I had a full-sized poster of that, maybe antiqued around the edges, I would completely hang it in my living room. Every line, every curve, every texture and every color is just precisely so. I wish I could explain myself better here.
@Ds—I think I know what you mean! When I was choosing between the different Codori Ivory images, that one just jumped right out as the prettiest. 🙂
I am a huge, huge fan of layering! I love wearing multiple vintage slips layered over each other, and I can carry that through fall with pretty tights and legwarmers .Will you be expanding your legwarmer selection this year? I bought all the ones I wanted last year haha!
@Jeanette—So do I, layering is the best! We do have some new legwarmers that will be showing up in What’s New soon, including one that we thought was gone forever! Keep an eye on what’s new as the weather grows colder for more lovely layering treats! 🙂
