Sockscussing the Different Types of Women's Socks: Philosockphy's sock of the month

How many pairs of socks do you have in your closet? How many pairs of cute patterned socks do you own? Have you ever considered what it means to be a sock enthusiast?


Sneaker Socks

If you're looking for a versatile, low-maintenance sock that can work with any outfit, sneaker socks are a good bet. They're popular among athletes and are perfect for those days when you don't have time to put on anything else. Sneaker socks go well with sneakers, chucks, and even dress shoes, so they can be worn to work or school or any place that requires a more formal look.
Available in all different colors and patterns (from solid colors to stripes), sneaker socks come in both long and short lengths. You can get them in bulk packs or as single pairs in your favorite color so you'll always be prepared for what the day has in store.


Patterned One Color Socks

One type of sock that is a great accent to any outfit, regardless if it is for work or play, are patterned one color socks. Patterned socks give off a fun and youthful look, but will still match with many different outfits because they are mostly solid colors. Although they come in many different colors and patterns, most patterned socks can be categorized as either being checked or striped. For example, with checked socks, you have your classic black and white checkerboard pattern (or red and white if you want to go bold). This particular type of sock is perfect for wearing with dark wash jeans while at an outdoor festival on a summer day. It will also go well with dress slacks during the winter months paired up with boots.


Patterned Multi Color Socks

Patterned socks are all about fun and color, but they can be a lot more than just that. For one thing, there are now socks with actual patterns on them, from polka dots to stripes to geometric shapes. And then there are socks that don’t have a pattern on them at all, but which bring new life to men’s shoes by adding a splash of color or breaking up monotony. It’s hard to think about what could be better for this time of year than colorful ankle socks - especially when it’s cold outside. The range in pattern and style gives you plenty of options for any occasion or desire.


Barely There No Show

Many women are choosing to wear a more barefooted look, either with flats or open-toed shoes. This trend is great for people who want to keep their feet cool and airy during warmer seasons. Barely There No Show socks are perfect for this look because they're light weight, thin and barely noticeable. These socks also come in fun patterns that give your outfit a pop of color without being overbearing.


Ankle Cuff/Over The Calf

Ankle cuffs are a style of sock designed to fit just below the ankle, while over-the-calf socks are designed to come up to just below your knee. Ankle cuffs will typically be cut higher and can sometimes even reach mid-calf, but they're not as tall as over-the-calves. The main advantage of ankle cuffs is that they'll give you a little more protection from cold floors in wintertime. They may also be less constricting on your calves if you plan on doing any vigorous activities like running or hiking. If you prefer slightly less coverage, we recommend going with an ankle cuff style sock rather than an over-the-calve one.
