Can You Wear Socks with Loafers?
Can you wear socks with loafers? After all, loafers are a classic shoe that many women love to wear with a variety of different outfits! Socks can make shoes far more comfortable by adding a cushioning effect to the foot and they can also add an extra layer of warmth in the winter. We’re going to tell you the ways that you can wear socks and loafers together.
Hidden Socks with Loafers
For those who are simply looking for the added protection of a pair of socks to get that little bit of extra comfort out of their loafers, then the best option is to choose a pair of invisible socks. Don’t worry, they’re not entirely invisible so you’ll be able to see them to put them on! Rather they are socks that are cut lower than the top of whatever shoe you are wearing so when your loafers are on, you won’t be able to see them!
Wearing hidden socks with loafers means that you don’t have to change your entire outfit to make sure it looks good with socks on show, you can choose whatever outfit you fancy and not have to worry about whether socks will ruin it! These socks also work great with ballet pumps!
White Ankle Socks with Loafers
In recent years we’ve seen the emergence of the socks and loafers trend. You can rock this look in a number of ways but the most popular way tends to be wearing loafers with white ankle socks. This trend looks great with a pair of black or brown loafers.
Whether you choose a plain pair of socks, sports socks, or ribbed socks, they’re a great way to draw attention to your fabulous pair of loafers. We particularly like using this combination to make a feminine dress a little more masculine, it’s fun to play around pairing different shoes with your outfits to see what effect they have!
Loafers & Patterned Socks
Wearing loafers with patterned socks is a bit more of an ‘out there’ option, but for those that want to be bold with their fashion choices this can look amazing! There are two main options when it comes to pairing loafers with patterned socks.
The first option is to keep your loafer choice simple, for instance choosing a black pair of shoes. This way you can pick whatever patterned socks you like and whichever socks will go well with the rest of your outfit.
The second option is to match your socks to your loafers. With this option we recommend sticking to a colour scheme, if you’re wearing red loafers why not choose socks that have a touch of red in them
Socks & Loafers for Warmth
Although hidden socks add an extra layer of comfort, they only cover the same amount of your foot as your shoe does. If you’re looking for a warmer loafer and sock option then consider wearing ankle socks (or longer) but wearing them with trousers. Again, it’s good to keep it simple with this pairing, pick a white or black sock. Whilst wearing black socks will blend into your trousers, white socks will make flash appearances drawing attention again to your loafers and making a bolder statement.
