No Show Socks: The Do's and Don'ts of Wearing Them
Do you love the way no show socks look and feel, but find they don’t fit your shoe well? Well, you’re not alone! They do have a reputation of being more difficult to wear, but it doesn’t have to be that way if you know how to make them work in your shoes. In this blog post I will go through the main types of no shows and their benefits, and then cover the do’s and don’ts of wearing them out and about.
Do get the right size
The first do is to make sure you get the right size. You want to avoid having your socks sag or ride up, as that can be uncomfortable. And don't forget about the height of the sock when you measure! ankle socks are usually a few inches shorter than crew socks, so keep that in mind when measuring.
The second do is to wear some crazy color dress socks! They're a great way to add some fun into your outfit and they will really pop out against other solid colors. Plus, they are a good conversation starter with people who see them.
Do choose the right fabric
Fabric is important when it comes to choosing socks. You'll want to make sure they are made out of a material that will help keep them in place. If you live in a warmer climate, cotton is not the best option because it can get too hot and cause your feet to sweat. In colder climates, wool is perfect because it has natural insulating properties that will keep your feet warm without having to wear multiple layers on your legs or feet.
Do consider the occasion
Socks are a fun accessory that can be worn for almost any occasion-but it is important to consider the outfit, event, and even the climate before wearing them. Let's explore some do's and don'ts for wearing socks!
Don't wear dress socks if you're not wearing dress shoes. It will look silly in sneakers or sandals.
Do wear crazy socks if you want to express yourself in a creative way. They're also great for making an outfit more interesting!
Don't wear ankle socks with dress shoes or formal attire. This is considered inappropriate in most professional settings.
Do wear colorful ankle socks with shorts on a hot day! It will make your feet feel cool while showing off your personality at the same time!
Don't wear them with open-toe shoes
There are a few things you should know about wearing no show socks with your shoes. First, make sure to wear them with the correct color shoe; you don’t want people to notice that they can see your feet! Second, don’t wear them with open-toe shoes or sandals. This will just lead to unpleasant conversations about what you have going on in your shoes. And lastly, if you’re really into crazy socks, then be careful not to wear them more than once a week. It gets old after awhile for everyone around you (especially when it comes down to cleaning the lint from your dryer).
Do wear them with low-cut shoes
The best way to rock no show socks is by wearing them with low-cut shoes. Not only will you avoid that awkward peek at your ankle, but you'll also have a chance to show off your awesome, colorful socks. When it comes to footwear, the more casual the better. You can wear these socks with a pair of dress shoes or even sneakers (the latter being great for exercising).
Do wear them with boat shoes
One way to wear no show socks is with boat shoes. Boat shoes are a casual shoe with a flat sole, hence the name boat. They're perfect for everyday wear, or they can be dressed up with some nicer trousers. And if you're wearing them with no show socks, they can also be worn in wet weather without getting your feet too wet. You can even match the color of the sock to your boat shoes; this'll look especially good if you have colorful or patterned no show socks.
Do tuck them into your shoes
For some, wearing no show socks is a way to add color and fun to an otherwise drab outfit. For others, it can be a way to make their shoes more comfortable by tucking them inside the shoe or boot. But there are some rules for wearing no show socks that you should know about before you go out and buy them.
First, always wear ankle socks with dress shoes or boots. No show socks have less fabric than regular ankle socks so they will bunch up inside your shoe, which looks awkward and is not aesthetically pleasing.
Second, don't wear them with sneakers!
Don't forget to bring extras
Most people have three pairs of socks, but that doesn't mean you should just throw them away when they get dirty. You should always bring extras to make sure you're never without a clean pair. If you're going to be wearing socks with your dress shoes, then it's best to pack the same color. It will help the socks last longer if they are not getting mixed in with other colors.
