Elle Patterned Cotton Socks from Sock Shop


Socks come in all manner of sizes and designs and our fascination in them is steadily growing. They've certainly come a long way since the standard knee high school socks ....there's now loads to choose from and something to suit every taste and age.
Sock Shop recently asked on twitter if anyone would like to become a 'twitic' and review socks for them and yes, you guessed it ...I jumped at the chance! I have a slight obsession with socks and have everything from plain ones and slogan socks to cutie and disney socks - sometimes I just can't resist!

Anyway, after applying, I was one of the chosen few and received some fab Elle socks soon after ....

Elle patterned socks in Vintage Pink
3 pair pack
As you can see, this is a pack of 3 pairs of Elle socks in Vintage Pink, 1 striped and 2 with pretty vintage flowers on. They're also available in Black/Vintage Pink ....

Black/Vintage Pink
I kinda like the girlieness of the pink ones although the black ones look pretty too! The socks are made from 76% cotton, 22% Polyamide and 2% Elastine and have a pretty decorative frilled cuff at the top ...

Frilled Cuff
Not only are these socks pretty to look at, but they're so comfy too! They hugged my legs nicely but not too tightly and during the day, I didn't have my usual problem of keep needing to pull them up. The socks are soft and the fact that they have no seams over the toes is a huge bonus, especially when wearing shoes as this normally irritates the life out of me with other socks.

Seamless Toes
They come in Ladies size 4-8 which is ideal! I wear size 4 shoes and often find that socks made to fit size 4-7 or 4-8 quite often feel baggy round the toes and heel. These however were a pretty good fit ...

Perfect fit (even for my size 4 feet)
Sweet and pretty (ignore the legs though!)

I comfortably wore these all day and had no trouble at all. Even after washing they kept their shape and colour and looked as good as new.

I would certainly recommend these, not only because they look gorgeous, but they feel fantastic too and i'd imagine to get a fair bit of wear from them before they'll need replaced.
This Ladies 3 pack of Elle patterned cotton socks with frilly cuffs is available from Sock Shop at a cost of £7.00 - a bargain considering the fantastic quality of them!
If these aren't to your taste, there's plenty more to choose from so make sure you have a good look around the Sock Shop website!
