    :rofl1: I am so glad I'm not alone in any of my sock non-opinions.

    I hate black socks, because they pick up all sorts of white fuzzy crap, so they end up sitting in my drawer. I mainly asked because she was so ADAMANT that this was an unacceptable thing. I thought maybe it was like the black sock and sandals taboo :confused:

    I almost always take my shoes off when I go in to someone's home, unless they forbid me from it or something, and then in my own home too, I don't wear shoes, so those are the ONLY TIMES socks would be visible.

    She'd have a heart attack, haha.

    I get around this by wearing the most garishly bright colored socks I can find. Usually with individual toes.

    And by not wearing skinny jeans. ;)

    Wait... I'll go google if there's some obscure etiquette rule about white socks after Labour Day. My mother used to swap out her white purse for her black purse on Labour Day, it was sort of a family event (we didn't get out much). Exact same purse, but black instead of white.

    I hate white socks because well ... yeah I don't own any white clothing period. ;)

    I soooo don't match my socks to outfits. You friend would die if she saw some of the outlandish bright colors I paired with my colored skinny cords and jeans, LOL.

    If I had neon mismatched socks, I would love to wear those instead. :p lol I have never heard before that there was a "rule" like this.

    I personally think that the best socks with skinny jeans are ones that go up to your armpits, because I can't fathom the appeal of skinny jeans ;) I have yet to see someone wearing them where I thought "that is a fantastic fashion choice!"

    All of my socks, other than a few dress pairs and a few super heavy SmartWool pairs, are ankle height black or grey. I hate white because I spend so much time outdoors in fields/woods that inevitably, my feet get wet, and either dirty water seeps through or the dye on my shoes does.

    Me, too, although the UGGS with jeans tucked in is starting to grow on me. But I HATE jeans tucked into cowboy boots.

    I wear them because they're comfier. I hate feeling jeans flap around my ankles. That drives me bonkers.

    I can't fathom the idea of jeans that aren't skinny!
    The ankle space seriously annoys me lol and looks just horrendous to me with ballet flats or converse or heels.. which is my basic footwear uniform lol

    Not sure about boots as I do not wear boots. I am short.. no need to make my legs look even shorter by cutting them off with boots lol

    I'm very particular about my socks. At the moment they have to be thin ankle socks lol. I don't match them to my outfit - I wear the ones I think are cute lol.
    But then again, I am NOT a skinny jeans person. I like my boot cut jeans. I don't mind other people who wear skinny jeans, I just think they look horrible on me ;)

    I wouldn't let your friend tell you that white socks shouldn't be worn with skinny jeans. If you think it looks good then that's all that matters :)

    This, for sure.

    And I like the way they look with my boots, too.

    I tried on a pair of skinny jeans recently - I wanted some to wear with my boots because it's not very easy to tuck my normal jeans into my boots without that ugly bunching and bulging - and I almost had a panic attack. THEY ARE TOUCHING MY LEGS. WHY IS IT TOUCHING ME. IT'S LIKE MY PANTS ARE GIVING MY LEGS A BEAR HUG AND WON'T QUIT. MAKE IT STOP. GET THEM OFF.

    No skinny jeans for me.

    BUT this may be an issue induced by my tremendous runner & cyclist calf muscles which are abnormally large and thus make even tall socks feel really tight sometimes. >=/

    This! All of my jeans are skinny. I don't really like the look or feel of other cuts on me.

    If I'm wearing skinny jeans then I'm wearing my Corral boots. And therefore you cannot see my socks. Therefore I do not pay any attention to what color socks I put on (or if they match at all)
