This Ukrainian brand designs unusual socks for any occasion and mood. All the socks are made of 100% wool and some models make a throwback to the 80s with the shining lurex. The color palette and patterns are quite extensive: for instance, there are pastel-colored models, classic two stripe socks and numerous pairs with prints. SOX is considered one of the best Ukrainian brands of socks.

'Bright Classics' series is a nice autumn choice - just bright enough to cheer up in the chilly mornings. Knee-high socks are also available in the collection. You can order a pair online or visit the SOX shop on 13/15, Observatorna Street and have a cup of coffee while choosing the warm pair. 

Underwear: SMPL

As the name suggests, SMPL lingerie is all about simplicity: flowing forms, natural materials and pastel color palette. Each underwear model is specifically tested by the two founders of the brand before it is launched and added to the brand’s website. SMPL doesn’t make customers choose between comfortable and beautiful, instead combining both qualities in their products.

Autumn in Ukraine often means that it's time to leave the lace and opt for something warmer. So, what underwear is it best to wear for women among Ukrainian brands? As SMPL underwear is made from 100% cotton, it will not only keep you warm but also let the skin breathe. You can buy a pair at the English version of the SMPL website.

Pants: Must Have
