While the weather is nice and cool and dry, it’s time to get sweaters and coats. And shoes on the contrary, do not remove. And in order not to freeze in shoes, you can wear tight tights, and you can — the same tight socks. Last time I showed the simplest combinations, now it’s time to go to a higher level.
Socks can be simple white sports, black, with a bright print, lurex or wool. The main thing is that they look new (it is clear that the hole on the finger of your internal fashion censor and so will not miss, but every time you check the heel for scuffs and pellets will not be superfluous). The brighter and more textured the socks are, the easier it really is: neither you nor others have completely inappropriate, but no less tenacious, associations with a collective farmer in socks with sandals.

Today’s article again risks being the shortest, just like the one about underwear. The topic is extensive, I touch on it in every second article (if not with words, then with examples-pictures for sure) and I’m not going to stop. But we need to be clear.

This style is already fit to call not athleisure (athletic + leisure), but athcasual or even athbusiness. Elements of sporting style are so firmly embedded in the wardrobes that there is no longer any possibility (and let’s be honest) any desire to expel them from there, even if it is not a Sunday walk in the Park, but an average formal business lunch. Athleisure, in my opinion, is the fifth big trend for this year, and probably several subsequent ones (until they finally invent some exoskeleton printed on a 3D printer for mass production, or we all change into spacesuits). We have already analyzed the four previous trends: the 80’s, 90’s, post-Soviet Gopnik style and inventive layering. Continue reading
