Sock drive helps Oregon's homeless

Sock drive helps Oregon's homeless
A charity drive in Oregon, US is helping to provide comfortable foot wear for the homeless.

Members of the Westminster Presbyterian Church in Medford decided to exchange socks for chicken soup at their Sunday school, getting more than 1,000 pairs to help people in the Rogue Valley, the Mail Tribune reports.

Sock donations are still coming in and the group also had numerous requests for the soup recipe.

"Clothes go out of style and people donate them. People also will donate hand-me-down shoes," Sunday school teacher Heather Koehler told the newspaper.

"But socks don't go out of style and people tend to wear them until they have holes in them, so they rarely get donated."

In a similar venture, the Elk Grove Citizen reports that the firefighters in Cosumnes, California are requesting sock donations for disadvantaged people in the area.

Emma Roberts aiming to shock with socks in LA?

Emma Roberts aiming to shock with socks in LA?
Actress Emma Roberts choice of leg wear this weekend in Los Angeles has proved controversial.

In what was undoubtedly intended as an attempt to show off her admirably slender legs in all their glory, the socks may have actually had the opposite effect.

The thigh-high black socks lacked some of the allure of tights or another alternative piece of legwear, and left an unusual gap of flesh between her shorts and sock-tops.

Some may have easily mistaken the 20-year-old walking down Sunset Boulevard for her auntie, Julia Roberts, who famously donned thigh-high black leather boots for her role in Pretty Woman.

However, Roberts does at least have some fans of her 70s style outfit. Her close friend Zelda Williams may have even helped her buy the socks herself, having tweeted last week: "Lovely lunch and vintage shopping day with @RobertsEmma. May or may not have made her try on a head-to-toe 80's Pretty Woman ensemble."

German women 'love socks and sandals'

German women 'love socks and sandals'
While it is oft-considered one of the worst fashion crimes anybody can commit, it seems there is one place in the world where people can get away with wearing men's socks and sandals - Germany.

According to a poll by market research company GfK reported by the German Press Agency, German ladies can't get enough of men in socks and sandals, a fashion that is even more popular in the east of the country.

However, since the news was reported on April 1st, readers could be forgiven for taking this revelation with a pinch of salt.

Meanwhile, when it comes to swimwear, 58 per cent of east German women prefer tight trunks and T-shirts over baggy swimming shorts.

Actress Emma Roberts was recently spotted putting her own spin on socks and sandals with a pair of black thigh-highs teamed with strappy leopardprint footwear.

Brogues, 70s and 'Glamazonian' trends in this summer

Brogues, 70s and 'Glamazonian' trends in this summer
Layering and bright colours will be the way to go this summer, one fashion blogger has said, as the weather is expected to be changeable and ladies should be prepared for anything.

Kate Williams, fashion writer at OSOYOU.com, said the 70s trend, with loose shapes and flared trousers, is also one to watch.

For the feet, ladies' socks should be paired with a pair of lace-up brogues, which not only look stylish but also keep you dry.

Ms Williams went on to say: "A pop colour mac hits the colour blocking trend, whilst still keeping bright in the summer months.

"A light asymmetric draped poncho or cape works the Glamazonian and 70s trends, and for festivals opt for Aztec prints."

According to a December article in Vogue, the spring/summer period is set to be a "riot of colour" this year - something ladies may want to keep in mind when choosing hosiery.

Shenae Grimes in thigh-high stockings for car repair

Shenae Grimes in thigh-high stockings for car repair
Actress Shenae Grimes had a spot of car trouble in Hollywood recently, and the 90210 star revealed that she likes to dress up in racy stockings even when out and about.

The actress, who plays Annie Wilson in the series, made a pit stop at a petrol station to get a flat tyre on her Toyota Prius fixed, and was sporting black hotpants, thigh-length socks and lace-up boots together with a grey jumper, the Daily Mail reports.

According to the newspaper, she has been researching her role for new film Sugar by making friends with a group of homeless people.

"I'm a really good sidekick for 'spanging' - that's what we call asking for spare change - and I don't need it myself," she told US TV show Chelsea Lately.

Due to be released later this year, Sugar tells the story of Hollywood's community of homeless people, and also stars One Life to Live actor Austin Williams.

Grazia magazine's Style Hunter section has said 24-year-old model Sara Sig has a "brilliantly individual" style, and while many ladies blanch at the idea of teaming socks with sandals, she manages to work the look.

Wearing a 1980s Versace-esque midi-dress, Sara put white ankle socks and Eley Kishimoto patchwork sandals on her feet, finishing the look with a tasselled necklace and huge bug-eyed sunglasses.

"Ok, maybe the camel jacket does a little toning down, but full marks for style bravery here. We salute you Sara," added the magazine.

Actress Emma Roberts was recently spotted out and about in Los Angeles in thigh-high stockings with leopard-print platform shoes, raising more than a few eyebrows in the fashion world.

Have you got your socks for this year's festivals?

Have you got your socks for this year's festivals?
The weather is warming up and festival season is nearly upon us, and one magazine has provided some tips on looking good even when the weather is bad.

According to Laura Martin, fashion stylist for Company Magazine, "fringing" is all the rage this year and can be applied to bags, jackets and waiscoats.

"The other must-have for festival season is your maxi dress and your logo oversize vests and tees, along with your denim cut-offs," she went on to say.

When the rain inevitably comes down, ladies should also make sure they have a pair of Hunter wellies - and a pair of thick wool socks to go with them.

"Chuck your Barbour jacket or your parka jacket over your floral playsuit - minimal look, no fuss and super-stylish," added Ms Martin.

Glastonbury Festival announced last month that the resale of cancelled and refunded tickets for this year's event will take place on April 17th.

Gwyneth Paltrow signals sheer is here for spring

Gwyneth Paltrow signals sheer is here for spring
Gwyneth Paltrow has bared her legs for a charity event, signalling that spring is here and that it's time for us to do the same.

It's not quite summer yet though and for those of you who are not feeling the sun or are afraid to bare all, then sheer tights could be your new spring saviour.

In a shoot for OK! Magazine, Gwyneth showed off her toned pins in a mid-length denim skirt keeping the bare look stylish and classy in Hampstead this week.

Pictured in the gardens of the Marie Curie Hospice, Paltrow chose a more English look unlike the bronzed Hollywood style we're used to seeing from the star.

Instead of faking it with tanning bottles, the actress could opt for sheer tights with a natural tan giving her legs a sun kissed glow ready for summer.

Miley Cyrus shows off rock chick look with tights

Miley Cyrus shows off rock chick look with tights
Catching a flight from Los Angeles to Chicago yesterday, Miley Cyrus was spotted showing off an edgier look than we are used to seeing from the pop princess.

Rocking a studded leather jacket, denim short shorts and patterned black tights, the 18-year-old looked more rock star than child star.

As fans and paparazzi photographed her she showed off her trademark smile to the cameras before boarding her plane.

The star of Disney show Hannah Montana has transformed her look from tween icon to recording artist since leaving the hit series.

Avoiding the bright colours and sequins associated with her on screen character, Miley Cyrus' rockier choice of clothing and hosiery showed a more grown up look.

Miley's Gypsy Heart world tour kicks off on April 29th giving the teenager further chances to experiment with her wardrobe.

Ray Mears urges Britain to wear long socks

Ray Mears urges Britain to wear long socks
Survival expert Ray Mears is encouraging people to cover up to prevent tick bites and Lyme disease, by making some careful clothing choices.

This week marks Tick Bite Prevention Week and the star has been out urging people to cover up with long socks, sleeves and trousers to prevent being bitten.

Tick bites, while a nuisance, are also spreading the little known Lyme disease which can cause rashes, swelling and further complications.

However, organisers of the event stress that symptoms can be lessened through regular checks for bites and monitoring their appearance.

Wilderness specialist Ray Mears notes that long socks are particularly important in the summer months, when spending time in the garden or exploring on holiday becomes more commonplace.

Tick Bite Prevention Week lasts from April 11th to April 17th with educational and fundraising events across the country.

Daring to bare in denim shorts and thin tights

Daring to bare in denim shorts and thin tights
Denim cut-off shorts are proving to be a big hit over the coming months for those wanting to bare their legs in the sunshine.

Short shorts are not for all tastes or shapes and therefore stylists are suggesting a pair of low denier tights could give a smooth, effortless look.

Recently, stars such as Eliza Doolittle have been spotted wearing the shorts with bright block coloured tops, adding a fun element to the classic denim legwear.

Thin tights with denim hotpants offer plenty of room for variation. Fashionistas can plumb for sheer tights for a natural look, or a low denier black pair for a more flattering appearance.

As the festival season draws closer women are showing off their legs to get them in the summer mood as they ditch their work wardrobes for lighter and brighter choices.

Fishnet tight performance not too sexy, says Ofcom

Fishnet tight performance not too sexy, says Ofcom
Ofcom has announced this week that, despite a large number of complaints, the celebrity performances from last year's X Factor final were appropriate.

The dance routines included a burlesque performance by Christina Aguilera featuring backing dancers wearing fishnet tights, as well as a raunchy performance by Rihanna.

Some 2,800 viewers complained that the final show was too sexually explicit to be seen by children, and aired before the watershed of 21:00 BST.

The regulator Ofcom has claimed that the show was "at the very margin of acceptability for broadcast before the 21:00 BST watershed."

ITV claimed that the Aguilera performance was appropriate as it was promoting the singer's new film Burlesque.

Christina and her dancers wore fishnet tights, corsets and silk underwear while performing seductive dance sequences live in December 2010.

Beyonce's new video is set to be shown across American schools on May 3rd and it is hoped it will encourage kids to dance and keep fit.
