A confession about my sock obsession

I have multiple subscriptions for sock of the month clubs, as well as sock drawer full of socks. I love socks so much that I decided to start a website called Philosockphy. That's where I share my favorite styles and ways you can incorporate them into your wardrobe. Today, I'm sharing 5 ways to style fun socks with any outfit. Keep reading for more!

What is the best sock subscription?

While many sock subscriptions are geared toward socks for men, some sock of the month clubs offer styles for women as well. For a fun gift idea for a boyfriend or husband, consider one of these funny or quirky sock subscription services that are just for men. For example, Philosockphy is a philosophical sock subscription service with themed monthly sock themes such as God is Dead and Love Your Mother. It's also a great option if you want something completely random and unique. You'll never know what you'll get!

The Advantages of Buying 3 Pairs of Socks at a Time

Philosockphy and sock subscriptions have been popping up in my Facebook feed, and while they may sound like strange terms at first, they’re actually beneficial ways of thinking about socks. Some stores offer a sock of the month subscription service so that you can get fun socks each month without having to buy them yourself. If you subscribe to a sock of the month club, all you have to do is pick one out once a month; how easy is that? That’s why these services are great for guys who aren’t interested in picking out socks for themselves; if someone else does it for them every single month, it’s all good. Plus, there are plenty of benefits: no more running out of clean pairs!

Do I Have To Wear All Three Pairs at Once?

While you may not want your socks, or those of any given month, judging you for walking around with only one pair on at a time, it’s actually very tempting for some of us. But if you find yourself starting a new sock subscription service and immediately pull out all three pairs of each sock design and never return them to their packaging—it may be time to set some limits for yourself. If you do purchase a monthly sock subscription service, just remember that no one has to know about your dedication (to fun socks). The more fashionable sort may want to wear all three pairs at once. And while it is certainly an eye-catching look, it might not be appropriate depending on where you’re going.

How Often Should I Replace My Socks?

To look and feel good, socks should be changed daily. It may not seem like it, but there is an equal balance of bacteria on our feet and in our mouths that can transfer if we’re not careful. Even if you wear your socks for just a few hours per day, be sure to change them out at least once a day. Since socks will get dirty faster when they’re worn outside of shoes or boots, it’s best to replace them even more often.

Why No One Wants Your sock of the month Subscription. (Really!)

In our opinion, no one wants your sock of the month subscription because not everyone likes wearing fun socks. If you want to find out if anyone wants a sock of your month subscription you’ll need to test it with potential customers or pre-sell it on a crowdfunding platform before taking out loans and spending thousands on manufacturing costs. But how do you get people interested in such an unusual product? The answer is that you have to make sure people already like wearing fun socks and are interested in novelty socks so that you can build a brand around those products. Maybe some of your friends like wearing fun socks but chances are they don’t wear them regularly because they don’t match any of their other clothes or they don’t feel comfortable going outside in funky clothing.

Finding your socks style: The Philosockphy Test

When it comes to your sock drawer, if you can't remember what's in there and you don't have a specific use for each one, you've got too many. It's time for some pruning. The same goes for your outfits: If you can’t quickly determine which socks will work with your outfit of choice, then you probably have too many. We recommend that your sock drawer include only 4-5 pairs of colorful fun socks; these are socks that should match or coordinate with at least three different outfits. When putting together an outfit from scratch, try choosing one item from each category (solid or patterned shirt/blouse/dress; colored or black slacks/pants; shoes) and then take care of everything else with a pair of fun socks.
