DIY Sock garters

Sock garters by SwanClothing at Etsy 1

Back in the days men used to wear sock garters to keep their ankle socks up as the socks did not have any rib. SwanDiamondRose made her own version of this classic dandy accessorie for the ladies. You can buy them from her Etsy shop or make one yourself. You´ll need elastic band, garter clips or suspender clips and a piece of leather. I´m also pretty sure I saw these being worn on several Fall 2009 collection, but I just cannot put my finger on who´s? Galliano?
