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! Our first set of socks include the pretty Dragon Wings Dragonfly Knee highs, from Socksmith. These are perfect for a Victorian gentleman or lady to add to their cabinet of curiosities.
Here in NZ, Winter is coming … which if you’re a Game of Thrones fan, means that all the characters are going to die. However, here at Asockalypse HQ, that means it’s time for us to come out of hibernation with some of the funkiest fashionable winter socks and goodies for your icy cold footsies.
Here are some of our favourite winter styles!
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.
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:
Are you looking for the perfect gift for the musician in your life? Do you want to wear something musical on your feet to celebrate your love of all things melodic? Well, have a look at our selection of music socks!
Polka dots are a fashion staple. We’ve recently added these super cute Going Dotty Polka Dot Trouser Socks by Celeste Stein to our collection. They come in Black/White, Blue/White, and Red/White, and are made from a nylon/spandex combination that makes them soft and comfortable with a bit of stretch. Read on for some ideas on how to style these awesome dotty socks!
At Asockalypse HQ, we get really excited when we see awesome ladies out on the street wearing our socks. But we get even MORE excited when we see our products on awesome fashion bloggers. So we were stoked to see these photos come through our email!
At The Asockalypse, we stock some pretty awesome trouser sock ranges: Celeste Stein trouser socks come in a range of funky patterns, and our new range of Polonova trouser socks will suit those who love elegance and beauty. (And don’t forget, we are the exclusive stockists of Polonova in New Zealand!)
But despite the inherent awesomeness of these ranges, you guys have been reluctant to try trouser socks. The question we keep hearing is: What exactly IS a trouser sock?
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.
