5 Types of Women's Socks You Didn't Know Existed

sock of the month clubs have been around for years, but are only just now gaining in popularity among women all over the country. If you aren’t already part of one, you may be wondering what these sock of the month clubs actually are, and why they’re such a big deal. First off, they aren’t just sock of the month clubs—although that’s how they got their start—they also go by names like sock subscription services and sock of the week clubs as well.

1) Patterned

Patterned socks are great for creating a little something extra. They aren’t just for sneakers, but can also be worn with a dress or skirt. Patterned socks give your outfit that extra something to make it stand out from the crowd. It is no wonder why patterned socks are one of our most popular types of women’s socks! The patterns come in all shapes and sizes: geometric patterns, striped patterns, floral patterns and even animal-shaped patterns! Patterns are simply fun, regardless if you wear them with your favorite heels or flip flops. Don’t be afraid to step outside your comfort zone with patterned socks; they aren’t just another ordinary pair of tights!

2) Dress

Let’s face it—dress socks are downright boring. But whether you work in a corporate environment or just need to go to your brother’s wedding, dress socks can come in handy. Don’t despair—even though they may be a bit less colorful than regular socks, there are still many types and patterns that you can use as an excuse to wear heels. What if you could sneak some color into your look with subtle polka dots or gold stripes? Whether it’s a formal event or not, these will give any outfit an elegant touch.

3) Crew

Crew socks, which are knee-high or higher and have an elastic band around your calf, are perfect for keeping warmth in. They’re ideal for skiing, mountaineering and other outdoor activities. Athletic socks: Athletic socks are great for high-impact sports such as basketball and running—and they provide support to muscles and joints in your feet. Patterned socks: Patterned socks might not be appropriate at a business meeting, but they make fun additions to any outfit if you want to spice up your look. They come in all kinds of styles, so there’s a patterned sock out there for every occasion.

4) Ribbed

More than just a fashion staple, ribbed socks are ideal for women with foot problems such as bunions or hammertoes. The ribbing can help with circulation and aid in reducing swelling. Ribbed socks are particularly good to wear with sandals and flats, allowing you to show off your pedicure while keeping your feet comfy. Keep in mind that they tend to be thinner and might not hold up well under sports-related activities such as running or hiking.
