One of the issues I have in the cooler months, if I want to wear pants and an open top shoe – like a ballet flat or pump, even a loafer, but I don’t want to wear a pair of tights (hosiery), then my feet get cold.
Now there have been the old “pop sock” or stocking sock option, even a fishnet sock option, which is where I’ve been going in the past, but I’ve just come across a new option that’s way more fun and can add a little more personality to your outfit.
Introducing the Sheer Sock with Pants
These days you can get a sheer sock – almost a cross between a stocking and a sock, in patterns and colours. What I love is that on the whole socks aren’t a big part of your wardrobe. They are a small detail in the whole. And to give you some inspiration on how to wear them, I’ve put together a week’s worth of pants based outfits and included sheer socks in each.
You can see that there is a small formula in putting together an outfit. It not only includes the clothes – top, bottom and outer layer (if needed) but also a few accessories to add interest and flair to your outfit.
Are you inspired to try some sheer socks?

Shop for Sheer Socks
Thanks for an interesting and useful post. I wear sheer socks regularly, mostly in black. Also have in nude for light shoes. They’re handy when buying new shoes and are so small you can keep them in your bag.
Love the socks-with-pop idea. I’m not a fan of “trouser” socks, though, as they tend to droop on me. If I’m wearing socks with work attire I tend to seek out knee high, and ones that have some oomph! Some of the best ones I’ve found come from equestrian stores (Ovation, Soxtrot) – they don’t all have horse-themes.
