Me wearing my loose socks
But let's have a fun post now. This is totally random, but I wanted to share my loose socks with you guys haha! Loose socks ルーズソックス become a trend in the late 90s in Japan after girls started wearing mountain climbing socks that were larger than the standard knee socks. The key point of loose socks was their ability to balance the size of the thigh to create an over-all thinner looking leg.
I wanted to show the length of my socks, which is about 150 cm!
Loose socks apparently hit the height of their popularity back in 1998 (dang it's seems like yesterday and a century ago at the same time TT) Since the early 2000s knee socks started getting trendy and loose socks have been slowly disappearing. But of course you can still see ko-gals sporting them, especially in the cities.
I got my loose socks back in about 2000, so when I was still really young. I was a chubby and shy youth so I really have worn them only twice. I thought by this time it's kinda pointless for me to wear them since I'm out of HS and they aren't so trendy. But then I saw these fab ko-gals on the subway.
Kogal on the subway. The guy next to them is pretty cute too ^^
Then I started thinking I want to try wearing them atleast one more time. Now I just need to collect the other pieces for a nanchatte seifuku hehehe^^ Does anyone have a recommendation for a good place to buy a non-cheapy looking pleated skirt? haha!
