Plain colored socks can brighten up an outfit without overdoing it, adding a little touch of color without falling into "too much". Be careful, it is important not to exceed 3 colors in your overall outfit in order to remain elegant while offering a visual pleasure. To do this, the color of your socks can be a discreet reminder of a color already used in your outfit, such as a tie, a hair accessory, a bag or a belt... It is also interesting to make mixtures of different colors, which blend well. Pink socks, for example, go well with blue or gray pants.
If you do not know what color to choose, you can opt for seasonal colors. In particular, bright colors are very often associated with summer or spring, darker colored socks are better suited to winter or fall. Pastel colors are very popular to add a color without being too flashy.
You can also wear plain socks in the same color as your pants, to lengthen the leg, or the same color as your shoes to stay traditional.
Although there are many sock uppers, some are more suited to your outfit. This is the case with socks for example, which are much more suitable for sneakers. Once again, you can opt for colorful socks to brighten up your outfits.

Why is it important to wear socks?
Socks are important because they absorb moisture from sweat. Feet remain in a humid environment if they do not have the protection of socks. Moist environments promote the growth of fungus and can lead to foot infections. Calluses and blisters can also be caused by direct friction with shoes. To remedy this, BellePaga's socks are thermoregulatory and allow the skin to breathe and not to sweat while keeping your feet warm. Indeed, alpaca wool is 7 times warmer than sheep wool. It is essential to wear clean socks every day.
Also, choose socks that make you want to wear them, such as plain colored socks.
On the other hand, if you want to show your ankles, choose socks, which are short socks that come below the ankle, and are thus less visible.
The differences between Baby Alpaca and Alpaca
Alpaca is one of the strongest fibers, stretchy and dimensionally stable. It is 4 times more resistant than sheep, so it does not pilling and is 7 times softer and warmer than sheep, while being both very light and flexible. It respects the most sensitive skins because it is hypoallergenic. Alpaca wool has unique thermal properties, it allows to be always at the right temperature, without sweating. Indeed, the alpaca living in the high mountains, needs a wool that keeps him warm but allows his skin to breathe. But then what is Baby Alpaca wool? Contrary to what one might think, this fiber does not necessarily come from a baby alpaca, but refers to the fineness of the fiber. Fibers between 18 and 22 microns will be called "Baby Alpaca". Thus, Baby Alpaca wool is considered one of the lightest and most luxurious fibers in the world. All BellePaga socks are made from Baby Alpaca wool.
Long lasting BellePaga socks
Being 4 times more resistant than sheep's wool, alpaca wool gives our socks an incredible life span. Thus, they resist wear and tear and can be kept for years. In addition, alpaca does not pilling with each wash, unlike sheep's wool or cashmere. For solid color socks that don't fade, BellePaga uses mineral pigment dyes, which are more resistant than chemical dyes. In fact, natural colors do not fade over time, leaving a more vibrant color over time. As for their care, BellePaga socks can be washed by hand or in the machine on a wool program or at 30 degrees maximum with the rest of your clothes. However, to avoid losing a sock along the way, it is interesting to use washing nets.
