Ready to dress up your wardrobe? Start with socks

It can be hard to find the right pair of socks. But that's because there are so many choices! You could have a different pair of socks for each day of the week, or you could have a few pairs and rotate them. Which one is best for you? It all depends on your personal philosophy.



Feet don’t have to be bare

We all know that it’s super important to have a good pair of socks. As someone who has been an obsessive sock wearer since I was little, I can attest to how much they can change your mood and even outfit. There are two philosophies when it comes to what you wear with socks - the first is that you should never wear anything on your feet if you don’t want them to be seen (aka no shoes and only socks) and the second is that if you want people to see your feet, then make sure they look good (aka shoes and socks).

Personally, I don’t believe in never wearing anything on your feet because there are many occasions when it’s appropriate.



Solid colors won’t go out of style

Solid colors never go out of style and are a great wardrobe staple. However, you don't want to wear the same thing every day, so it's best to mix things up with patterned socks that can easily be matched with your outfit. A few popular patterns for men include argyle, stripes, and polka dots. Women might like polka dots or checks. Having a variety of patterns gives you more options when deciding what to wear each day.



Black socks are an essential

It's an unfortunate truth that we all have those occasions where black socks are a must. Whether it's for a dressier occasion like going to the theater or attending a formal event, or more casual occasions like lounging around in sweatpants, black socks are an essential part of any man's wardrobe.

You don't want to wear just any old pair of black socks though. You want to put on the best pair possible so you can look and feel your best at all times.

We've compiled this guide to help you find the right pair for every occasion!



Stripes or polka dots can add detail

Socks are often overlooked in the grand scheme of fashion. But, if you're looking to add some detail to your look, socks can be a great way to express your style while staying warm and comfortable. When choosing a pair of socks to wear with your outfit, take into account the occasion and temperature in order to find the right pair for you.

Keep an eye out for stripes or polka dots because these details add an extra layer of personality without being too flashy. These days, there's a sock for every occasion so it's worth exploring what your wardrobe options are!



Everyday white can be striking

Sometimes it's good to have a few pairs of white socks on hand for those moments when you're not sure what to wear. White socks can be paired with anything, from jeans and a t-shirt to a dress and heels. Plus, they're less likely to get dirty than other colors, making them perfect for everyday use.

White socks are also the perfect way to add a little pop of color to your outfit if you're feeling monochromatic. You can match your white socks with another neutral shade like khaki or camel, or try an unexpected color like red for a more eye-catching look. And don't worry about looking too casual; these days there are plenty of ways to dress up your feet without having to spend hours picking out an outfit!



Time to spice things up? Try bold colors like purple, green, orange, red and pink.

You can never have too many socks, but that doesn't mean you should have bad ones. In order to be a true Philosockphy owner, you need to own at least three pairs of socks - one white, one black and one patterned. But don't stop there! Here are some more tips for the ultimate sock wardrobe.



Winter weather calls for warm socks

Winter is the time of year when we all need to be mindful about our feet. When the weather outside is cold, dry and crisp, our toes need extra special care. But it can be hard to know which socks are best for your needs! That's where Philosophy comes in. We offer a complete guide to help you find your perfect pair from our wide variety of styles and materials.



Dress up your feet for summertime fun with patterns like polka dots, stripes and even American flags.

Shoes are a great way to express your personality, but you can also do it with socks. With so many patterns and styles out there, it can be hard to know which ones are right for you. That's where Philosockphy comes in. This company has a guide that tells you the right sock for every occasion. It even includes different socks for different seasons like holiday socks and patriotic socks!

My favorite is the artistic sock. This one is perfect if you want to show off your creativity without having to wear something too outlandish or if you want to show off your artistic skills on a more subtle level than say painting or drawing on your clothes. It's just as fun as wearing an animal print or plaid pattern though!
