5 Hacks to Style Socks with Any Outfit

How many times have you seen someone pull out their socks and say Ugh, I hate these socks! There are few things more disappointing than putting on your favorite outfit and realizing that your socks are at odds with the rest of your look. If you’re tired of ruining those comfy shoes you keep kicking to the back of your closet, check out these five hacks to style socks with any outfit.

1) Choose the right sock subscription

You may think that all sock subscriptions are alike, but they’re not. You’ll be happy to know that there are ways to work around a subscription service you don’t like. Sign up for a sock of the month club, which provides an eclectic assortment of styles and colors every month. The beauty of a sock of the month club is its variety. There will always be at least one pair you’ll like. If you don’t feel passionate about one type or color, maybe that means it's time for some new socks! A Philosockphy can also be fun if you want something more personalized than just receiving random socks in your mailbox monthly.

2) Mix up your patterns

When it comes to socks, it’s not hard to get stuck in a rut. But with so many different colors and patterns out there, you can mix things up from one day to another. Try wearing polka dots with plaid, or pinstripes over paisley. Pops of color on your shoes or belt can be a good place for pattern coordination—or just go crazy mixing them together. The options are limitless and only limited by your imagination! If you need ideas for fresh looks, subscribe to a sock of the month club—these will give you new styles and patterns every month that are fun and exciting!

3) Wear non-matching socks

The point of socks is not to match your shoes. So if you’re going for a more dressed-up look and don’t want to break out your tuxedo socks, grab a few pairs of non-matching white or black socks. These will help keep your feet comfortable without looking overly casual—plus they add a bit of color. Invest in sock subscriptions: It may sound silly, but if you wear matching socks every day and find that you don’t have enough unique pairs, invest in a sock subscription service like Sock Fancy . Every month or so you’ll receive an assortment of new pairs hand-picked by online shoppers like yourself.

4) Wear Two Pairs at Once

For a fun look that’s both classy and on-trend, try wearing two pairs of socks at once. Pair your favorite socks from last month’s sock subscription (there are many options available!) with your usual sock pair for a fun twist. You can wear these two pairs of socks in a bunch of different ways: you can wear one inside one, put them side by side, or mix things up and wear both of them on top. The more mismatched and unique looking, the better! And if you have friends who own sock subscriptions themselves—ask them to join you! You’ll be able to trade new pairs every month and grow your collection faster than ever before.

5) Have No-Show Socks On Hand

Philosockphy. If you ever find yourself at a loss for what socks to wear, just reach for a pair of no-show socks that go under your shoes and add style without sacrificing your comfort. These low profile socks come in fun patterns and colors so you’ll never have to settle for boring socks again. They may not be fully visible but they’re still sock philosophy at its finest!
