Steampunk – retro-futuristic fashion styled after a science-fiction world of steam and brass – is taking the world by storm. Here are Asockalypse HQ, we are steampunk-mad! Take a look at some of my favourite socks to help you complete your steampunk outfit. All these styles – and more – will be at AetherCon on Saturday!

Sock Style: A Leopard Never Changes His Spots

But you can change yours whenever you like!
Animal prints – especially big cats – are huge this season, but it can often be hard to style them. Leopard is such a bold pattern, it can feel overwhelming to add it to an outfit. For many women, an animal print skirt or jacket is just tooooooo much.

This is why we love animal print socks so much. You can add a little bit of leopard, a touch or tiger, or a dash of dachshund to your outfit without feeling like you’re in a Tarzan & Jane film.

10 Socks for Goths

socks for goths 2

I must confess, I have a bit of a goth streak. There is nothing I love more than cute little skulls, bats and spiders on everything. While goths are notorious for wearing black, they do also love other colours, particularly red, purple and dark blue. Neon colours like yellow and green are often seen accenting some gothic wardrobes – in a club, these glow under UV light and look seriously badass. We’ve got a huge range of socks that would suit any discerning goth. Have a look at some of our favorite spooky, romantic and beautiful gothic socks below:

Sock Style: Sweet Cherries

Sock Style will be a regular feature here on the Asockalypse blog. It’s all about celebrating personal style and showing off different ways to wear and style your socks. The Sweet Cherries socks are one of our most popular styles. I think it’s because they appeal to such a wide range of people.

To me, the design is pure 40s pin-up, but to others, it’s pretty and summery with a bit of “life-in-the-country” nostalgia. Cherries might be your favourite berry or simply the perfect garnish to your favourite cocktail – whatever the reason, you all seem to love ’em.
