This is a blog for people who love stylish footwear without the pain, bunions and back problems that heels can bring. Just because a shoe doesn't have a 4.5 inch heel, doesn't mean it can't be beautiful. This is also a blog for anyone who wants to adopt a slower style with a focus on sustainability. Learn more about good and bad fabrics and how to make the most out of your existing wardrobe, always with comfort and practicality in mind.

If you have an interest in masculine shoes, chances are you also have a penchant for snazzy socks. I know I do. It’s all part of the look, right? A turned up jean to show a peek of colour really brightens a drab, foggy day like today.

I’ve long been a fan of Gap socks. That whole 3 for £10 thing: what’s not to love? There’s regularly a huge choice of my favourite patterns – spots and stripes – and they last ages too. My most recent haul last week was very successful. I particularly like these grey multi stripe ones.

This season though, I’m experimenting with Argyle socks for the first time. Nothing too crazy – because Argyle socks can be REALLY crazy – just a subtle diamond print on a dark coloured sock.

My new discovery for great socks is Muji, and it certainly has plenty of Argyle options to choose from. Its socks are a little more expensive than Gap’s but still come in at a reasonable £4.95 per pair. And you’ll notice a cute dotty pair in the mix too for good measure.

So if you want to add a little colour to an otherwise plain outfit, why not slip on some colourful socks this autumn?
