Your sock drawer isn’t just used to keep your feet warm and dry. It also offers you the opportunity to express your personality and showcase your style as you incorporate it into an outfit each day. Here are 5 ways you can use sock trends to complement any ensemble throughout the month of January, courtesy of Philosockphy's sock of the month club!
Tip 1. Use fun socks in your wardrobe staples
You can find socks in a variety of colors and patterns that are perfect for pairing with your favorite outfits. No matter what you're wearing, you'll be able to incorporate fun socks into your look. Whether it's dressy or casual, there are options that will work for any occasion. For example, if you want to wear a suit but want something more playful than black dress socks, purple ankle socks are an excellent option. You might also consider funky crew socks in lieu of basic dress socks. On the other hand, if you're dressed casually and want to add some personality through your sock choice, go ahead and wear high-contrast colors like green and pink or crazy color socks just because they make you laugh!
Tip 2. Pair fun socks with casual shoes
Tip #2 is pairing your fun socks with some casual shoes. This way you can wear them on a day-to-day basis and not just when it is dressy. You might be thinking, But I don't have any clothes that match my socks. Fear not! All you need are some fun patterned pants or skinny jeans and then you are set to go.
Tip 3. Make fun socks part of an outfit
So, what's a better way to get your feet wet than by trying out these socks and showing them off? Let me show you how I styled my new sock box from Philosockphy. The first outfit will be a casual look that you can wear on date night or out with friends. In this outfit, I paired my Philosockphy socks with some black leggings and a long sleeve tee. The second outfit I chose was more dressy - great for when you're going on a first date or meeting someone new at work. For this one, I paired my Philosockphy socks with khaki slacks and a button up shirt.
Tip 4. Choose solid colored socks
Dress socks are a great place to start when it comes to styling socks. Solid colored dress socks can be paired with any outfit in your closet and will give you an opportunity to really play around with different colors and patterns. With solid colored socks, you have a great base that will go well with any shirt or pants that you decide on for your look. One way to mix things up is by wearing fun dress socks like Philosockphy's crazy color dress socks which come in a variety of colors each month.
If you're looking for something a little more casual, try pairing colorful ankle socks with jeans or shorts! ankle socks can be worn year-round without having to worry about being too hot or cold.
Tip 5. Have fun playing around with patterns on your sock
1. Mix and match patterns or colors on one sock.
2. Wear socks that match a specific color scheme in your outfit (like wearing green socks if you're wearing all green)
3. Wear different colored heels and toes on each foot, or wear two different colored pairs of socks! 4. Wear two different patterned socks together, like stripes and polka dots 5. Have fun playing around with patterns on your sock!
