Fashion Mini Series: Picnic & Music Fest

As the last sweet days of summer linger, we’re enjoying the bright sunny mornings and long warm evenings. It’s the perfect time to get all the love out of your summer wardrobe before breaking out the boots and sweaters for fall. We put together a few of our favorite end-of-summer outfits to help inspire your final month of summer.

Perfect Picnic Outfit

Keep it comfy with distressed boyfriend jeans and a simple grey V-neck. (We love no-fuss staple items as our outfit base – it leaves room for fun accessories and allows for easy mix-and-matching throughout the season.) Add a little summer color with our Seaglass & Grey Mum’s Floral compression socks, then throw on a lightweight anorak jacket to complete the look. You’ll want sturdy, but cute shoes for walking through the park, and these gray booties will do just the trick! Grab your favorite picnic blanket and head to your local park or beach for a fun afternoon.

Music Fest Outfit

It’s the season for music festivals and outdoor concerts. Don’t miss a beat – make sure you add compression socks to your legwear line up for the long days on your feet. Our functional fabrics are the perfect accompaniment to your favorite cowboy boots, especially in the Mustard & White Petite Dot. A breezy striped dress will keep you cool all day – just add a sweater in the evening and you’re ready to dance the night away!

Sizing, Fabric & Compression Levels Guide

Size Chart:

We have a different sizing chart depending on the type of compression garment. Please consider your foot and calf circumference when choosing your size.

If you're in between sizes, ask yourself a few questions:
What is my body type? Will I be more comfortable in a size up or down? Take your body type into consideration when choosing a size especially if you're in between sizes.

Compression Levels:

Compression garments are made in a variety of support levels, each of which is designed to address different needs. These levels are most commonly expressed in millimeters of mercury (abbreviated as mmHg). Generally, graduated compression is displayed in ranges. The higher the numerical value, the stronger the support level indicated. For example, a 20-30 mmHg garment will offer more support and feel tighter than a 15-20 mmHg garment.

All of VIM & VIGR’s products are offered in 15-20 mmHg compression level and select styles are available in 20-30 mmHg.

How to put on compression socks:

Slip your arm into the sock until your fingers reach the toes. Your palm should be resting in the sock's heel. 

Starting at the cuff, fold the sock over until it meets the heel. Make sure to fold the sock onto itself.

With the sock still inverted, pull the foot of the sock firmly onto your foot. Make sure your toes are securely in the toe pocket. Starting with the cuff, gradually roll the sock up.

Adjust so that your heel is properly positioned in the heel pocket and the cuff sits below the knee. Make sure the cuff is not pulled up too high.
