Too often in fashion, socks are overlooked, but novelty socks are quickly addressing that problem. Some otherwise well-dressed people are still buying their socks in bags, but many have caught on to the appeal of hosiery with a personal flair. If you're still on the fence, read on to find out why fun socks are all the rage.
Everyone Loves Socks
While some trends may be deemed "too young" or "too old" for different demographics, everyone loves novelty socks. Kids wear them high with shorts to show off their designs. Women of all ages wear them to add color and contrast to outfits both casual and professional. Men, whose wardrobes have been neutral and dull for too long, are among the most enthusiastic fans of fun socks.
Socks Are Discrete
While novelty ties are still considered tacky in some venues, socks are fair game. A flash of patterned socks in a professional setting is a cheeky nod to the days when a Victorian lady was considered risqué for exposing her ankles. There are also many social contexts where discretion is still necessary. For example, while cohesive wedding photos remain the standard, more and more wedding parties are allowing the men to choose their own socks.
Socks as a Fashion Statement
Many people are closet fashion lovers. That is to say, they love fashion but don't have the confidence to chase trends. If you hesitate to try new looks, then you will love this fail-proof fashion statement. Patterns or designs that you wouldn't dream of wearing on a shirt or pants look effortlessly cool on your feet. Better yet, you don't have to fret over whether those patterns coordinate with the rest of your outfit. The hottest trend in hosiery right now is actually mismatched socks.
Socks Say Something About You
In an effort to save time and avoid stress, many people end up wearing self-imposed uniforms. You probably have a favorite brand and style of jeans or several of the same t-shirt. You know what you like, and that's great. But it can also leave your outfits looking a little flat. Fashion socks are an easy way to inject personality back into your wardrobe by wearing a favorite pattern or choosing a design that represents a favorite hobby.
Socks Make Great Gifts
Finding the right gift feels harder than ever, but everyone wears socks. If you know your gift recipient's favorite color or a personal interest, then you know what kind of fashion socks to get them. Fun socks make a great gift for everyone from coworkers to close friends to family of all ages. They easily fit in any budget, but they also make a thoughtful holder for the ubiquitous gift card.
If you've made it this far, then chances are you already know that trendy socks make life better. They bring humor to professional functions, add personality to your wardrobe, and make an ideal gift for the otherwise impossible to please. With so many awesome designs available, you could easily wear a different pair every day. So, what are you waiting for? Get yourself some novelty socks and give your feet the fun they deserve.
