They say that to really know someone, you have to walk a mile in your shoes. While that is valuable advice, there’s another solid but underrated way to know someone more. It’s by looking at the socks they are wearing. Likewise, the socks you wear will also give other people more insights about you as an individual.
Are you wearing plain socks, designed socks, foot socks, or knee socks? Each of these has a story to tell. You can already tell so much about a person by checking out their socks.
Plain white or black socks: practical and straightforward
They’re called basic for a reason. Usually worn by people in the corporate industry, plain black socks exude simplicity, practicality, and formality. White socks, on the other hand (or foot), are also practical as they are most often used for sports. Though these plain white or black socks will surely go well with any outfit, they don’t really give much room to make an impression on a person. Ultimately, plain black or white socks don’t really give much of an insight into a person’s individual personality, so they are usually tagged as safe and stable choices.
Plain but loud colored socks make an impression
These types of socks can be attention-grabbing without going overboard. They’re enough to let others know that you are not boring and that there’s room for a little fun. Plain and loud-colored socks are actually perfect socks for people who still need to follow specific dress codes but who also want to show a little bit of their personality as well.
Patterned socks for a little individuality
This is the next higher level after plain and loud-covered socks. Designed socks with either traditional and unconventional patterns show off a confident spirit. Stripes or dots show that while you do not 100% conform to dress codes, you also do not want to be the center of attention. These patterned socks are subtle ways of ensuring your individuality still shines through.
Novelty socks to stand out and own the room
Go big or go home—if you’re going to go for fun socks, why not go all out and don a pair of loud, bright, and funny novelty socks?
The great thing about novelty socks is how each unique design conveys a different message. In short, there is something for everyone. Whether your designed socks have animals printed on them or a wacky vintage feel , novelty socks will allow you to embrace your own quirkiness and share it with the world. Even those people who don’t know you will already recognize your passion for creativity and your high spirits at the first glance of your novelty socks.
Walking in someone else’s shoes will give you an inside look into their life. Likewise, you’ll also get a chance to experience life differently if you put on uniquely designed novelty socks. Even just one pair can already spice up your whole outfit and affect the way you go through your day. So choose the design that calls out to you and start living your life with more color.
