Socks 'adding variety' to New Yorker's workplace challenge
A fundraising New Yorker is hoping to rely on stockings and socks to boost her style over the coming months as she looks to make it through an entire year by wearing just one dress to work.

According to the Guardian, Sheena Matheiken is trying to raise funds for charity by only wearing replicas of a single black dress to work over a 12-month period.

Using accessories such as stockings, socks and other hosiery items to heighten her style, she is encouraging people to donate items of clothing and money to help fulfil the goal of raising cash for the Akanksha School Project charity, which aims to provide money to schoolchildren in Indian slums.

The newspaper reports that Ms Matheiken has already used coloured socks, cut-off leggings and distinctive necklaces to expand upon her otherwise limited dress code.

Ms Matheiken claims she discovered the joys of adapting uniformity by using socks and other accessories when she was at school in India.
