Do's and Don'ts of Cool Socks

Do's and Don'ts of cool socks

Do you know what one of the best gifts to give the man in your life? Socks, of course! They’re perfect if you want to show your love without breaking the bank, and they come in all different types depending on your need. But there are certain types of socks that aren’t so great—in fact, there are some socks you should never give him. Here are some do’s and don’ts of cool socks that will keep you from making any slip-ups!

Do: Wear White No Show Socks With Every Outfit

As long as you’re not wearing a short-sleeved shirt, no show socks can pair well with every outfit. If you have to wear athletic shoes at work, even better. If white socks don’t speak to your personal style, there are plenty of other colors that match any outfit. Take advantage of socks subscriptions or sock-of-the-month clubs for a fun way to start building your collection.

Do: Buy Sock Subscriptions

If you don’t have time to shop for cool socks, then opt for a sock subscription service. Each month, you'll receive a pair or two (or three) delivered right to your door. The best part about these services is that you can use them as a gift for someone else too! It’s like giving someone something they didn’t know they wanted, which is why they make great presents! Our favorite sock subscriptions include: Sock Panda: With over 800 pairs in stock, there are tons of options to choose from at affordable prices.

Do: Invest in High-End Stylish Socks

While it might be fun to buy a bunch of socks for $10 at Target, those aren’t going to last very long or be very comfortable. Instead, invest in a few pairs (or more) from an online sock subscription service like GentsGiftBox or Bombas . Both companies focus on delivering stylish socks that are made with high-quality materials. They both offer free shipping, so you won’t have to worry about paying extra when they send you your next batch of socks. And, since you subscribe to them month after month, they will automatically send new socks when your old ones wear out—no thinking required! This also means that by doing nothing at all, you will always have fresh cool socks in your dresser.

Don’t Wear the Same Pair Two Days in a Row

If you're still wearing white athletic socks from high school, it's time to make a change. The good news is that there are countless cool sock brands out there—you just need to know where to look. Our favorite pick for cool socks for women is Rock Love—the brand has hundreds of colorful designs available, but even better, they’re also based in Nashville so you can buy them locally or online. For men, we like Mendeeze, who just started selling their socks at Tip Top Shoes on Thompson Lane. If you're looking for funky options (which are our favorites), check out Spunky Stride and Ampersand & Sparrow.

Don’t Overdo It with Black Color

You’ve probably heard before that dark colors make your look slimmer. It’s true! Just be careful when you’re wearing too many black socks; it can look gothic or like you're trying to disappear. On an average day, three pairs should be your limit if you want to look classy. Mix up light and dark tones for a less dramatic effect, or wear just one pair if you want to go all out. If you really love black socks, go ahead and purchase them but don’t wear them every day. Each month, pair up two light-colored socks with a darker-colored sock as part of your sock of the month subscription from Quality Logo Products® (free shipping within contiguous US).
