WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF VINTAGE-INSPIRED SOCKS? Well, that depends on what era of fashion you feel like channeling today:

  • 40’s Women’s Socks: Classic ankle socks in white or pastel shades of pink, yellow, and blue are perfect for capturing the 1940s era of fashion!
  • 50’s Women’s Socks: Rockabilly style began influencing fashion in the 1950’s, and sassy red, white, and navy blue tights have been stealing hearts ever since. This is the fashion era when slingback heels, strappy sandals, and stylish flats first made their debut! In the 50s, pointed-toe ankle boots, ankle boots with cute cutouts, women’s penny loafers with ruffle socks, and slip-on flats all challenged the status quo in women’s fashion.
  • 60’s Women’s Socks: In the 1960’s, ankle boots with sensible kitten heels in bold hues became mainstream! Fishnet stockings in bright colors and boho-style crocheted tights were being layered under patent leather ankle boots with squared toes and block heels! Lace-up tennis shoes gained traction as Keds went mainstream, and naturally, patent white go-go ankle boots became the must-have footwear.  

  • 70’s Women’s Socks: Knee-high socks were so retro camp in the 70’s and fishnet stockings under platform ankle boots, stylish mules, and clogs can be traced back to the 1970s fashion era. The disco era also made way for wild metallic tights, sparkly glitter tights and socks, and boho-inspired fringed detailing. 

  • 80’s Women’s Socks: Madonna made sure sassy thigh-highs and mesh tights secured their spot in iconic 80’s fashion. Hightop sneakers made their big debut, and Ferris Bueller ensured their popularity with slouch socks becoming all the rage. Ankle boots, knee-high boots, and thigh-high boots reached new heights during the 80’s fashion era requiring neon tights, neon socks, and neon fishnet stockings galore. 

  • 90’s Women’s Socks: School girl chic came back in a major way during the 1990s fashion era, and knee-high socks became a mainstay of the nineties. Quirky prints, striped socks, socks with polka dots, and socks with fun graphics added personality to loud neon nineties fashion. Platform Mary Janes with cute ruffle socks were everywhere. Platform sneakers also took footwear to new heights in the 90’s, and the combat boot was the shoes of choice for the grunge rockers and rebels, often paired with edgy thigh-high socks, or thigh-high stockings.
