When you’re out and about in the country, it’s more important than ever that your feet are cosy and comfortable and ready to take on whatever the day has to throw at you, but style is important too. The best approach to country sock styling is to have a range of socks for different seasons and uses, whether it’s a winter ramble or lounging around a country pile.
In this guide, we’re going to take a look at some essential country sock styling tips to keep you comfortable, warm and looking fab, whatever you’re up to.
1. Rely on woollies
In terms of materials, cotton is often the go-to sock for the uninitiated, but when it comes to country living, cotton simply won’t do. Wool, preferably cashmere, cannot be bested when it comes to country pursuits. Not only does it provide the warmth you need, but it’s also extremely comfortable, lightweight and versatile. That’s a big tick in every box.
Try our luxury cashmere and silk blend heel and toe socks for a luxurious look and feel while keeping your feet warm, dry and well supported.
2. To wear with wellies
There’s nothing like a beautiful boot length sock to complement your beloved wellies. While your wellies might be unbeatable when it comes to keeping your feet dry, they’re not always the most comfortable, particularly if you plan on spending a good few hours rambling around. That’s why you need the perfect boot length sock.
Our long length, lightweight wool argyle socks are the perfect accompaniment to any Wellington boot.
3. The country pub
Hanging around in the country is not all hard work. You also have to make time to visit the local country pub for some wholesome food and an ale or two. When functionality is less of an issue, why not turn your socks into a talking point with a country-inspired design? Although the beer probably won’t run dry, the conversation might, in which case, you’ll be wearing the next talking point on your feet!
We have just the sock for the job. You can give the locals something to talk about with this country-inspired design.
4. Lounging by the fire
At the end of a long, tiring day of country living, what better way to relax than to take the weight off your feet in front of the fire? Beautifully made and with no elastic in the cuff, our cashmere cotton blend lounge socks with a relaxed slouch style are the perfect way to lounge in style. They’re also lovely and warm for those chilly winter evenings.
