Do Your Socks Need to Go With Your Outfit?

Do Your Socks Need to Go With Your Outfit?

Socks that don't "go" with your outfit: is it okay?


Everybody's seen the crazy sock trend that's picked up over the last couple of years - but many people still don't know the "rules" when it comes to wearing crazy socks. We thought we'd open up the discussion and share our expertise!

Crazy socks have been an increasingly growing trend among both men and women across the country. Especially within the work place, people are choosing to use socks as a way to express their more creative side even within the strictest of professional dress codes. Not only that, but they have become more of a statement as far as people's outfits and them wanting to wear socks that show some personality.

Though it seems that most people will wear crazy socks without thinking twice about it, there are still a lot of questions about whether or not proper "sock etiquette" would require people to match their socks with the rest of their outfit.

Since we've been in the sock business for a couple of years, we consider ourselves to be pretty knowledgable about sock trends and sock culture - so we thought long and hard about what we really think about whether or not socks need to be matchy-matchy.

And after all the thinking, what did we decide? Long story short: the answer is no. Your socks do not need to match or even "go" with the rest of your outfit. Because socks have gone away from being just practical and have now become something that people view as a way to express themselves, unless your personality is to have everything matching, why should you feel the need to match your socks to your outfit? It's so low risk to let yourself wear whatever it is that you want to wear under your shoes that even if you are on the more conservative side, you don't have to feel too bad about socks that might not necessarily be the perfect match.

It's time to stop trying to match our socks and accept that is is completely okay to have some good old fashioned FUN when it comes to how we dress (specifically - how we wear our socks!) Because life is way too short to wear boring socks.
