Almost every single morning we put on a few key clothing items – socks being one of them. However, all too often their function is valued more than form, fun and importance!
Did you know that socks can be functional AND daring?
You might not be the fanciest dressed person in the room, but rolling up a pair of fun, patterned dress socks can take your outfit to the next level and make you feel a little more put together.
Buying the right socks can improve your looks, comfort, and ultimately save you money and time in the long run. Using a sock subscription service, like sockbox.ca means you don’t have to head to the mall when you realize every pair has a hole or is orphaned from the dryer.
Delivered directly to your doorstep every month for 3, 6, 12 or 24 months, your bright socks will help you jazz up just about any outfit.
When to Wear Fancy Socks
Fancy socks can be anything from novelty motifs, to bold patterns and bright colours, to classic designs. Knowing when to roll these on is the first step!
If you’re attending a sombre event (think: funeral, wake, ultra-serious business meeting) you might want to skip a brightly patterned or novelty sock. However, a dress sock with a simple colour like navy, or classic pattern like paisley, would work well.
Serious moments aside – there is no other time a fancy dress sock can’t be embraced!
- Liven up a simple outfit. Donning a classic navy, charcoal or black suit for work? How about a simple jeans and tee combo for your weekend errands? A pair of unique subscription socks can turn a basic outfit into a deliberate and fashionable ensemble.
- Take colour coordination to the next level. Picking a colour palette in your outfit can allow you to play with fashion. Use your socks to lift a colour note from your pocket square, neck-tie, shirt or sports jacket to create a cohesive look. Remember – colours should “go” not “match”.
- Impress in other cultures. Sometimes we know we’ll be going shoe-free. Whether it’s a dinner at your boss’s house in town, or a business meeting in Japan where shoes are often removed for meals or drinks, having a fun dress sock can score you extra brownie points.
