Quick Tip: Having Fun with Your Socks

For many people, socks are just another piece of clothing. Nothing special, you wear them because that’s just what you do. But that doesn’t have to be the case. In this post I’ll feature five socks that break the mold and let you add some pop to any outfit.

1. Not Your Father's Dress Sock

With dress socks, it is easy to get lost in a sea of blue, black, brown, and argyle. The vibrant colors and floral pattern on this sock shows that you can wear something a little different, but still look professional.

2. An Everyday Bit of Fun

Not all casual socks have to be of the white or black variety. This pair is great for daily wear and, like all things at Uniqlo, is super affordable.

3. Casual Color Blocking

I discovered brightly colored casual socks only a couple years ago and never looked back. The main difference between these and a dress sock is in the weight. While dress socks are generally thinner, these cotton socks have a bit more weight to be able to take the place of the generic athletic kind.

4. Some Bunny To Love

Regular readers know that I love Psycho Bunny. The interest that the logo generates is fun for everyone (even my mom gets a kick out of it). These dress socks infuse their trademark wit and humor into any business wardrobe.

5. The Wear-with-all

Just because a pair of socks is casual, doesn’t mean you have to treat them that way. The right socks can bridge the gap from sneakers to boots to derbys.

What are some of your favorite socks? Send me some shots and tell me why you like them.

Stay stylish,
