January warming trend

Happy New year to all our favourite fashionistas!

Every winter season there is always a hot selling item in our three Frakas boutiques. It's the item I am scrambling to buy more of in December with the Christmas rush. (Last year it was thick knit infinity scarves, so we had plenty on hand this year.) Scarves were still a very popular item this year, but not to be outdone by the all time fashionista's favourite of the 2013/2014 winter season...boot socks, leg warmers and over-the-knee socks!

Boot socks and leg warmers serve the same purpose. The tall boot socks are worn above the boot line, intentionally seen, often scrunched, or with a lace or button detail on top. Leg warmers are worn the same way, but are often thicker and are worn along with a regular sock. They are worn inside your boots, with the tops showing. This gives a cozy and casual look, most often paired with leggings and a long tunic style sweater - sort of an Apres Ski look.

Over the knee socks can be worn into the spring season with a dress, tunic or pair of shorts. Wear them with shortie boots or shoes. They add some playfulness to any outfit.

Stop by and let us show you how to wear some tall boot socks, over-the-knee socks or leg warmers. There are so many options.
