Socks are winter’s must-have accessory and they play a massive role in our final look. Not many people give any thought to the type of socks they wear or whether they should wear any socks in the first place. Well, this humble clothing item is now gaining greater relevance in the world of fashion, especially in the autumn/winter months.
Who would have thought socks could be fashionable? You think people hardly notice them, but if you’re fashion conscious, then they are as important as the type of shoes you wear or the handbag you carry.
Big fashion brands know the powerful role socks play in the world of fashion. So they invest a lot in socks that bear their brand name and creative designs.
For as long as I can remember, fashion designers have been passing the message that socks have the potential of being the game changers in fashion. In fact, they have been featuring all sorts of socks on the runway.
Socks of all colours, patterns and sizes add depth and meaning to outfits in a way that most people overlook. Now almost every well-known brand has their signature socks that you can choose from.
There are so many reasons why socks are a must-have accessory, but here are a few that are really crucial.
Socks turned into an outlet for intense creativity
The sky is the limit when it comes to finding the most suitable pair to suit an outfit. Fashion designers were able to show the world that there’s no outfit a pair of socks can’t accompany. We’ve seen socks go with dresses, compliment flats and heels and there is nothing socks have not been paired with.
Aside from enhancing creativity with socks and outfit combinations, the colours, patterns and textures of socks have been quite creative. More people are embracing bolder designs and socks are no longer relegated to just something to wear with sport shoes.
I always say that the outfit you wear is your way of expressing your personality, mood or character. Socks, just like every other clothing item can be used as a medium of expression. This is the side of socks that people have shown a lot of keen interest in.
Socks are a means of spreading a message
Remember how we recognize and feel the impact of slogan tees? Socks have been able to be a way for people to pass a message or simply make people laugh. You have socks that carry words conspicuous for others to see. Just like that the unsaid words are spoken through our socks.
Wearing socks are in vogue
This is one of the major reasons why you should start styling your outfits with an awesome pair of socks. I witnessed an era where wearing socks in your sandals was thought of as strange and unusual, but now even this taboo has been debunked. And I am loving it!
If you’re fashion conscious and you want to make sure that you are following the trends, then now is the time to grab a pair of comfy socks. Plus it is so chilly now so make the most ofd it. Nothing like slipping your trainers off to show off cool set of socks right?
What do you think of the socks trend? Are you a fan? Do you think socks are winter must-have accessor
I really love the way your outfit looks with the socks and the shoes. I didn’t know I could wear socks with a dress. It is an eye opener for me and I love it.
Thanking you Osimeno.
Ooh I love the socks at the top of this post – very cool. My partner collects socks, he has ones from Japans and loves Ralph Lauren ones with the bear print – apparently its a thing
Glad you do Laura. Yes it is a thing xx
We love these type socks and the kids love that we have matching ones
Yea same here Kara.
The socks and dress combo looks gorgeous on you, not something I’d have thought of pairing together.
I love wearing bright and colourful socks as do all three of my children. They like them to have a bit of character about them.
Yea. I find them so cute.
I do think they are a winter must-have, even here in Portugal. But I’d never be brave enough to wear them in an outfit such as the one you’ve featured in your post. I only wear them so.long as they are covered by jeans or boots.
Ah I know. Many say the same.
I collect socks and my faves are my Mona Lisa with red nails pair. Glad they are back in style. I knew it would happen eventually, ha!
Oh cool Lorna.
