Having seen these previously on the odd occasion, I decided to get myself a pair and hope I could pull them off too. I found them in Topshop for £3.50 or 3 pairs for £8 and so I decided to have the three, especially with student discount then taking it down to £7.20 which I don''''t think is too much for a pair of socks I will only wear on occasion. They had a huge assortment of colours from just black and just cream to mix and matched pastel shades. I chose a navy and cream pair, a grey and black pair and a cream and black pair.
I especially had in mind wearing these with my converse trainers, so that you could just see the frill over the cuff of the trainer. Although on putting my converse on over these socks they come slightly just too short of the cuff so I have to pull the sock up a little so that the heel in the sock is actually above my heel. I know these socks aren''''t supposed to be ankle socks but they do seem to be for smaller feet. One size socks for women I would say usually fit 4-6 however I''''m a 3 and even then they fit smug. In all these socks are so cute, but very thin and I imagine they can''''t be worn over and over before they are extremely worn. I would recommend these socks, but I would suggest getting darker shades to ensure they last a little bit longer. :)
I once saw a girl wear something similar with shorts, bare legs and creeper shoes and I wanted something to go with my creeper shoes. I never planned on going out and finding some of these but on a shopping trip in Lincoln I went into the Topshop and there just happened to be some on the wall. I bought this in a single pair as they didn't come in a bumper pack, I never really looked at the price because at the time it didn't matter but these cost me £3.50.
The socks are typically the same as children's cute socks. I remember having socks similar when I was younger but mine were never frilly so when I saw these I had to have them. These are ankle socks and the frilly lace comes just above that. The sock itself has ridged lines going up the sock.
These overall are really cute and girly which isn't me so it's nice to put something girly on even if it is something as small as socks. These were really soft to wear so they weren't uncomfortable at all. However when I washed these for the first time they came out of the wash a slightly gray colour. I thought this may be due to them being wet.
When they were dry they were really dark white gray and I was quite disappointed because I did pay £3.50 for them and after one use they were dis-coloured, I still have these socks and do still wear them but they are so cheaply/badly made due to the one disadvantage.
