The Guide to Sox Coordinate: by rosebullet Edit Tokyo

January 15, 2016 in Useless fashion

I haven’t done proper fashion posts in a while because i was so busy being unfashionable! Hahaha.

Anyway today’s useless fashion post is about fashion coordination with socks! One of the key points of recent Japanese fashion is sox (that’s how they spell socks haha), sox, and more sox!

It could be challenging for Malaysian and Singaporean fashion scene because we have almost zero socks culture, except when it comes to school uniforms and going to the gym. Or when someone is getting Hong Kong Feet omg. And i understand one of the reasons is that the weather is so. freaking. hot.

Nevertheless, i cannot live without socks in my wardrobe. I maybe have like 50 pairs or more? I also have many pairs of sneakers, so sox are the ultimate sidekicks.

These are all my new sox from Tabio, available at rosebullet Edit Tokyo, Singapore!

Tabio is a very popular socks brand in Japan. It has stores all over the country and the most visited one is probably the one at Harajuku Takeshitadori! It’s affordable with great quality (of course! Made in Japan!!). Majority of the socks are free size so it is stretchable to accommodate a range of sizes.

 

Here are some of the different ways sox can spice up your wardrobe and give your fashion a whole new angle!

Color Coordinate

Sox gives you a perfect reason to play color or pattern coordination. Since it’s only a small accessory, you can pair it with a main color or motif like top+sox, hat+sox, bag+sox, etc. It’s super fun to play with!

You can even match it with your make up!! For example red lips and red sox against a monotone outfit.

Sometimes it’s also used as a “point”, which in Japanese means the whole focus of an outfit. It could be that the sox is of a entire different color from the outfit or it just looks wicked cute!

 

Sox is Necessary

Sometimes sox is just imperative lol. No explanation needed.

Sox is Accessory

When an outfit is plain or very simple, and there’s no chance for you to wear other accessories like earrings or necklace, sox can be a great alternative to embellish your outfit!

I had my hair down and there wasn’t any necklace that could fit this outfit, so sox was a perfect choice. I wore it in stripy beige and bordeaux for simplicity.

 

Changing the Mood

Sometimes a pair of sox is all you need to change the entire feel of an outfit.

If i wore only the stilettoes without the sox and perhaps without the hat, the outfit would have been a little OL and smart dinner-ish. But throw on a pair of matching lacey sox and you have a romantic Pretty Woman weekend lunch date!

 

Sandals with sox

IKR!!! It used to be the ultimate fashion faux pas, but i guess there’s really no such thing as wrong fashion. Just personal taste. I personally loooove sox with sandals (not to mention it was crazily trending in Japan for a long while in summer. Actually, it was trending well into autumn because sandals were the biggest things and the Japanese had to wear sox to warm their feet lolol) because… i mean, how else can you make boring sandals look pretty?

Paring More Than One

Who says you can only wear one pair at a time???

Leggings

Another alternative to sox is leggings, stockings, etc. Great for mini skirts and shorts! And of course a must if you travel to winter countries.

Sox is Life

In the sense that, you can have the most boring outfit in the world, given the right pair of sox it can spice up the whole outfit and breathe new life into your coordinates.

I mean, come on. Cap, Boyfriend shirt (in this case, stolen-from-danna sweater), baggy jeans, and a pair of cheap sneakers. And overused canvas bag lolol. But my sox screams life!!!!!

    You pair the socks so nicely! hahaha! i used to wear socks when i wear skirt too (with flat shoes). But my auntie commented that it looks so ugly, looks like a village girl hahhaa.. So i stopped.

    My favourite coordinates of yours this time is with legging one and the socks as main point one!

    Super love all the variety in this post! I’ve recently been trying to incorporate more socks into my coordinates as well but mostly just white socks with pumps haha or OTK socks with boots.
    Still can’t get on board with the socks + sandals thing tho 😛 There’s this tourist stigma with it from growing up in Hawaii I think lol. Automatically reminds me of clueless, obnoxious lobster (red sunburn) visitors who are often disrespectful of local people/culture.
