There are a lot of so-called “rules” in fashion. Don’t wear certain colours together, if your hair is one colour you can’t wear these kinds of hues, don’t mix and match your metals. We at Sock Dreams say “BAH” to that! All of us Dreamers dressed up in different rule-breaking looks (with plenty of legwear!) to show you just how awesome breaking fashion rules can be.
You’ve probably all heard the “don’t wear white after Labour Day” rule. White is traditionally a summer colour and Labour Day marks the end of summer, so finito to white once the leaves start turning. Well, what about winter? Or any time you want a clean, monochromatic look? White is totally your buddy then, no matter what the season.
If your hair is a redder shade and your skin is fair and freckled, then you’ve probably been told to stay away from red and yellow and other warm and vibrant shades, because it will “clash with your hair.” Well, a couple of the Dreamers have red hair and neither of them stick to the cool tones and neutrals that they’re “supposed to” and they look awesome!
Now, you may be like “that Dreamer only has red-tinted hair! Of course she can wear a bright red!” I suggest you hold onto your hat, because the next red-haired Dreamer cares not for your rules!
If you are not too shocked by our audacious fashion rule-breaking, join us after the jump for more!
It seems like a lot of fashion “rules” boil down to “don’t wear things that are similar but different.” So navy and black is a no-no (no matter how gorgeous it is)—
—and so is black and brown (though c’mon, look how amazing they are when you add a contrast colour like turquoise).
No mixing patterns (even if it is super fun).
And no mixing metals (silver! gold! bronze! copper! other alloys!) Doesn’t matter if it is totally fabulous!
But us Dreamers think that, with the right mindset and attitude (you are AWESOME!), anything can go together. I cannot describe how quickly everyone volunteered to put together a “rule breaking” outfit to give me examples.
Now. There is one last fashion rule that a lot of us break and which seems to cause a lot of argument. Open toe shoes (especially heels) with socks.
Super controversy! Especially when you pair thicker and longer socks with shoes like this, not just skimpy anklets! But you know what? If you like it, rock it. That’s really all we’re trying to show (besides how much fun we have dressing up). And if somebody gets on you about breaking fashion rules? You just let them know that you’re a rebel, and they’re never gonna catch you.
15 soxy thoughts:
I do black and brown all the time and adore my navy, esp with black! I really never have cared for fashion rules… suggestions are fine, I take mine with a grain of salt 😉
Loving the black/navy compo, so cute!
@Niqkita & @Lucy, both of you are my most wanted fashion criminals. 🙂
Do what you want, just never… EVER… wear anything camo patterned :p
I think the only one I’m not really a fan of is the last. I don’t know what it is, I don’t mind regular sandals with socks (specially fun socks), but open toe heels with socks or even panty hose I just can’t do lol
@Travis, Now, folks can wear whatever they want. Camoflauged or not. If you don’t like camo, that’s cool, but other folks do love it. And they make it look awesome.
@Monica, ha! I am not super good at pulling off the socks and open toed shoes myself, but I’m practicing! I love when folks can make it awesome, and I want to do it too. 😉
More than anything, being trans has taught me that I can wear anything that makes ME feel good about myself. Whether or not it’s fashionable is beside the point. If it makes me feel good about me, then I’m going to wear it.
These are all super cute! I always say wear what you want, to hell with what anyone else might think! I also seriously want the boots in the navy & black set <3
@Martha, danged right! If a person feels awesome in what they’re wearing, other folks can see that. And if they can’t? Well you feel fabulous so they have got to be wrong. I like to think of clothes as costume and armour (or, I guess, superhero clothes). They help me show who and what I am that day.
@Natalia, that’s the spirit! And right? Those boots kill me every time I see them. They’re super soft too. Darn her feet being so much smaller than mine, I can’t even day dream about stealing them. 😉
I like the socks and open toes…i even like the hiking wool sock and berkinstock sandals combo. But i just cant understand the standard unitoe sock and flip flop. How is that even comfortable? Flip flip and awesome toe sock on the other hand….winning combation for ultra casual footware.
@Fancypants, I can totally understand that. Comfort-wise, tabi socks are going to be better than regular socks when wearing flip flops. You don’t have to push the sock down between your toes because it’s shaped like mittens for your feet!
I LOVE wearing brown/black together – one of my fav combos and get questioned on it all the time…
I also love the navy/black but worry more with that combo because i feel like people are thinking i didnt have sufficient lighting when i was getting dressed and mixed my colors.
*****I LOVE WEARING UNISOCKS AND FLIPFLOPS!!!!!!!!! i do it all the time!!!!!!!! my mom and bf dont understand how i wear flipflops at all because they think flip-flops in general are uncomfortable. but i have never had any issues with it….especially sock dreams brands – those seem to fit very well while wearng flip-flops.
@Raubynn, I don’t know how you do it! And of course you can wear whatever pleases you but I am impressed by your toe-tastic ability! I wonder if the Dream Stockings and Dreamer Socks work better because of the larger feet of the former and the super-stretchy fit of the latter. Niq told me about a shade of black once that was in that nebulous area of navy and black. I love the idea of that colour, because adding it to a navy and to black ensemble would add more transition and purposefulness, so nobody thinks you’re dressing in the dark. Though if you do dress in the dark (I totally do sometimes), who’s to judge? Maybe you like to keep things exciting. 😉
if you think it looks good if you think its sexy or if your comfterbul in it WEAR it fashon is a point of view i belive
