Sock Subscription Boxes Reveal Your Personality

Sock Subscription Boxes Reveal Your Personality

Using sock subscription boxes to give you fresh pairs of socks every month doesn’t just solve the problem of never having matching socks, it also reveals your personality! The type of socks you wear says a lot about you, and you probably don’t even realize it. Here are three common sock patterns and what they say about you based on your favorite subscription box.

Types of socks

Deciding what kind of socks to wear really depends on who you are, but there’s some common ground between most people. For example, if you’re in an office setting or trying to dress professionally, a no-show sock is best; it stays hidden from view and doesn’t show a visible seam, meaning your feet look neater (and your shoes won’t show scuff marks). If you spend a lot of time on your feet—or just want as much cushioning as possible—look for performance-oriented socks that offer extra padding at all points. At first glance, fun socks seem like they have little practical application.

Snug vs. Loose

Socks are often overlooked when you’re building an outfit, but they can add just as much personality to your look as any other piece of clothing. If you typically wear more fitted clothes, a snug sock will work well—it will bring everything together nicely. However, if you tend to wear looser clothes, it’s best to opt for a loose sock instead. For example, donning a super-tight sock with baggy pants can make your legs look weirdly disproportionate (think: linebacker thighs). Also keep in mind that bigger pants sizes have wider ankles and won’t work with tight socks.

Prints, solids or patterns

This is a question that has intrigued marketing and psychological research firms for years. Is one sock choice better than another? What could you tell about someone if they walk in wearing matching socks? Let’s find out together! First, let’s talk about your personality. Every person has a different personality, thus everyone will have a different preference when it comes to their sock choices. Some people are relaxed, others are spontaneous or creative; what type of personality do you have? Next we must see what your sock choices say about you. There are many styles of socks to choose from, so let’s break them down into three categories: prints, solids and patterns.

Do you love your socks?

This may seem like a silly question, but you’d be surprised how many people think their socks are totally unremarkable. You’d never tell your friends that you hate going to a concert because you don’t like being in crowds, so why would your socks be any different? If you can find a way to appreciate your socks and make them part of your personality, then maybe it’s time to step up your sock game. Who knows? Maybe they have more meaning than you ever realized!

How often do you wear socks these days?

It’s almost summer. Do you wear socks much anymore? No, we didn’t think so. That’s part of why sock subscription boxes are so great—they bring new, fresh styles to your doorstep every month. And if you have several pairs of identical socks but in different colors, a sock subscription might just be an easy way to add variety to your wardrobe. We do say might, though. The converse is also true: a sock subscription box can make it all too easy for you to buy more clothes without thinking about it—especially when you see a super-cool pair or two that gets delivered right at your door!
