What do your socks say about you?
Socks keep our feet on the ground, they keep our extremities warm and snug and punctuate our style alongside our shoes. Socks are a personal item of clothing, they’re essentially underwear after all, something we always put on at the start of the day and take off at the end. For this reason, socks can say a lot about you - do you like snug ones, functional socks, mute tones, bright colours, novelty socks? There are so many choices these days, so much room for sock individualism! That’s what socks enable us to do, they enable us to smuggle some personalisation into any outfit. Sneaky, and on occasion naughty, socks can remain well hidden, only to be revealed in more intimate settings.
Of course, we have different socks for different seasons and from thick to thin, tall to short, there’s something to fit every purpose. Who has a big basket of socks? Most people we reckon, so who’s sock basket is full of dull socks? You know who you are! Well, maybe your first pair of spectacular socks will lead to another, and another, until eventually, your sock basket doesn’t look so grey, white and black anymore- and why not?
When we slip on our socks we slip into something that provides us warmness and snugness, especially in the colder months. Being encased in something that is personal to you keeps you grounded, how many of us have lucky socks, socks with sentimental value or socks we treasure because we wore them at special events? There’s something symbolic there, you cover them up throughout the day when you’re out and about but they’re always close to you.
So what do your socks say about you?
Socks make statements and our vast selection has many quirky pairs that are sure to bring a smile to those who see you in your new socks.
