It seems like this spring is a fake news lately. I mean it’s way too cold for spring. Surely, we have some sunny days. But these sunny spring days are so cold. In short, the cold season is back. And this is not another fake news. But wait! Don’t swap those fancy heels, sandals and fashionable mules you bought two weeks ago, for cozy warm shoes. And don’t put your crop top and mini skirt back to your closet before you see my fabulous solution. Remember, it’s still spring, no matter the frost and fresh breeze.
HOW TO WEAR SUMMER CLOTHES ON A COLD SPRING DAY
Honestly, when leaving the house this morning, I didn’t know what to put on. Either my favourite over the knee boots, remember I showed you how to wear them in spring over here, or to be brave and wear pumps. It’s spring, after all. The sky is clear and the morning sun is tempting me to put on sandals and light summer dress. Yet, I know the reality is icy. And so f* cold.
So I decided to make a compromise and put on my favourite spring white pumps a tweed mini skirt, and yes, you see it right, a striped crop top. And style my spring outfit with my thin winter coat and warm bow socks. Yes, you got it. You can wear your sandals and pumps on a cold day like this, feel warm and look fashionable as well. Just put on some socks or tights in your shoes. Ps. Check this post over here, to see how to wear your spring outfit with tights on a cold spring day, when apart from the cold, your style has to overcome the rain, too.
Forget on the fishnet socks and fishnet tights, the star of the season now, are bow socks. Either, ankle socks or knee socks. Surely, even better when they have keyhole openings along the front and are trimmed with many bows. You know what bow socks I have in mind, the Gucci Knee socks with velvet bows.
As fashionable as bow socks are now, there is a hack. I’m pretty sure you had at least one pair of lacy bow socks, probably in white or light pink when you were a little girl. You know what I mean? To make sure you don’t look like a little girl, you must style your fashionable bow socks with some stripes or some other clothes with an edge. Like the crop top. Keep on reading to see what I mean.
Ps. You can find some fabulous socks you can wear with your sandals and pumps in the galleries. Be sure to browse through the galleries to see how to style bow socks with pumps or sandals for a chic spring look. By the way, you can shop all the looks by clicking on them.
SHOP AND WEAR MY STYLE
I’m wearing tweed mini skirt from Storets, white pumps, white Weekend Maxmara wool coat (you have seen me wearing this coat this spring over here and here), pink and red striped cropped top from House of Holland. And pink leather gloves, white socks with a bow from Calzedonia, and mini white bag.
You can shop my look from the gallery bellow.
HOW TO STYLE BOW SOCKS
As said, wearing bow socks can be quite challenging. Especially, if you are not a 5-year old girl but a 20-something ladyboss. Remember, your goal should always be to look confident and fashionable rather than cute and funny.
One way to elevate your look when wearing stylish bow socks is to style your socks with the cropped top. Even better with a striped crop top. And a mini skirt, or shorts. You do want the bows on your socks to pop, right? Well, a midi skirt is an option, too. However, I’m going for a mini tweed skirt this weekend.
HOW TO WEAR CROP TOP ON COLD DAYS THIS SPRING
Obviously, to stay warm on a cold spring day, while looking like a grown-up lady, in bow socks, miniskirt, and cropped top, you need to finish this look with something that wraps your entire outfit.
I decided to put on my long thin, yet warm wool coat. 100 % virgin wool, of course. As it’s way too cold to wear anything else this weekend. Anyway, the emphasis is slightly more on long rather than on wool, this time. When it finally gets warmer, I will wear this outfit with a robe trench coat. Yes, the one I wore some time ago with a suede skirt and over the knee boots over here. Writing about over the knee boots, you should check that blog post about 3 Ways how to wear OTK boots this spring. In case you don’t feel confident enough to wear your pumps and sandals with bow socks.
WHEN TO WEAR BOW SOCKS
Finally, about when to wear bow socks in the first place. Surely, I shouldn’t let you shop all of those beautiful bow socks without telling you when and where to wear this socks. I’m wearing mine bow socks this Sunday, remember I like to test new trends on the weekends, for the Sunday brunch and Sunday stroll through the streets of Ljubljana.
Though you might have worn your bow socks to the Sunday service when you were little, forget about this look now. Wearing bow socks with mini skirt and crop top is simply not appropriate for the church. Also, a little note, if you are having your Sunday brunch at some fancy 5* hotel or fancy restaurant. Swap your mini skirt with a midi skirt. You can still keep a crop top on, though. Check how over here in a blog post about the Easter Egg hunt.

Don’t forget to check my Instagram to see what else I’m wearing this Sunday. And don’t forget to have a look at my previous weekend styles over here. You can spot some of my weekend styles all the way through the post, but I’m leaving you to find my best ones your own.
