You've been meaning to go sock shopping for the longest time, but it just hasn't happened. Well, no more excuses because we've got you covered with Philosockphy's sock of the month club! This fabulous club will help you save time and money in the long run and will also keep you fashionably stocked with awesome socks every single month of the year! All you have to do is read our Do's and Don'ts of No Show Socks to make sure you get started off on the right foot!
It’s not all about matching socks, sometimes it is just about having fun. From cool mens socks to crazy color dress socks, there are plenty of options out there for men who want to express themselves. But with so many options, what do you get? First, think about your needs. Do you have a job that requires formal attire or does your work environment not allow for flashy clothing? Then you may want to stick with more subdued colors like black and navy blue. If you don’t mind standing out in your suit or ties then go for it!
How To Wear Them
No show socks are a great way to add some color to your outfit. Here are our top 5 do’s and don’ts for wearing no show socks this summer.
DO wear them with shorts
DON'T wear them with sneakers or sandals
DO wear them with jeans
DON'T wear them with sweatpants or joggers
DO try experimenting with different colors, patterns, and textures on both feet (e.g. one bright patterned sock on one foot and a solid color sock on the other)
DON'T make socks too tight--they should be able to wiggle loosely around your heel
How to Wash Them
Mens colorful socks should be washed in cold water, with a small amount of laundry detergent. You may want to consider adding bleach to the wash cycle if you are worried about stains. If you are using a high efficiency washer, it is best to use hot water as this will help remove bacteria from your clothing. Hang them out to dry - they will last longer that way!
Where Not To Buy Them
Do not buy socks from a vending machine! If you are in need of a sock, it is probably because you have lost one. And if you lose your second sock, well...you see where this is going. You don't want to be stuck with a bunch of mismatched socks, so get them from a store or online instead!
Do not buy no show socks from Walmart! When choosing your best sock subscription, make sure you purchase them from stores that specialize in men's clothing. If Walmart is your only option for getting new socks then just avoid their no show socks section altogether.
Do not buy ankle socks at Target! Target has some great styles for women but when it comes to men, they offer very little variety.
