Ankle socks 'spot on for spring'
Ankle socks are both warmer than bare legs and more summery than tights, making them the ideal legwear for the current cold climate, an expert has asserted.

Style commentator Katy Smail made her remarks in an article for clothing resource My Fashion Life, adding that spring might be considered sprung but the blizzard she just battled begs to differ.

Ankle socks can be quirky, preppy or coquettish, depending on their design, she continued, making them a useful and versatile addition to a wardrobe.

"They sound like the best thing since black tights but in reality there are a couple of small print issues. Namely, your ankles may be toasty but they still leave a large portion of the leg exposed," Ms Smail added.

However, she concluded that in pursuit of perfect style, chilly knees are a sacrifice worth making.

Recently, many British women have been ditching their hosiery in favour of socks, with a particular current trend for knee-high woollies - legwear which certainly will keep the wearer's knees toasty!
