Types of Women's Socks - More Than Sneaker Socks and Pattern Socks



A sock of the month club or sock subscription service offers women more than just plain old sneaker socks and patterned socks, if you can even call these things plain old or sneaker or patterned at all. When you look at each pair of socks closely, you’ll see how unique they are and that they go beyond their basic colors and patterns to actually make your feet look gorgeous from head to toe. I adore my new monthly pair of socks from Sock Drawer – you should try them too!



Patterned socks

What would a wardrobe be without patterned socks? Patterned socks are by far one of my favorite items to wear. They can add some much-needed color to your look, especially if you have a lot of neutrals or muted colors in your outfit. Patterns on socks don't have to be just for fun, either. You could add a pop of color to an otherwise drab outfit with subtle patterns that compliment other pieces in your closet. Or throw caution to the wind and wear fun, bold patterns with equally wild outfits. If you're worried about how serious your workplace is, keep it subtle or choose more neutral shades like white or black.



Compression sock

When it comes to sports socks, compression socks have a reputation for keeping up with strenuous workouts. If you’re always on your feet, these are some of your best options. Compression socks are designed to promote blood flow and reduce fatigue while improving oxygen intake. They can be worn during exercise or as part of your everyday wardrobe.



Sports sock

As its name suggests, a sports sock is worn specifically for sporting activities. It’s made from a breathable material like wool or synthetic materials that give it an excellent cushioning quality. The sole purpose of a sports sock is to provide support and comfort when wearing sneakers. If you’re in training for any kind of sport or your job requires you to wear athletic shoes, then wearing sports socks while exercising is necessary to prevent injury. If your job requires you to stand on your feet all day, then having supportive socks will help reduce swelling, fatigue, and discomfort while also wicking away moisture so you can stay fresh on those long days at work.



Dress sock

If you’re looking for socks that can work as part of a polished, professional ensemble, dress socks are probably your best bet. They come in a variety of different lengths – mid-calf, below-the-ankle, over-the-knee – so they’ll suit almost any kind of skirt or pant. Dress socks don’t generally have too much going on when it comes to patterns or textures; they usually match with most things without overpowering them or clashing. Plain black dress socks are pretty versatile, but if you want to branch out into prints (or really stand out), consider patterned dress socks that still stay well within office wear parameters.



Ballet style sock

A classic sock style for women, these socks are white with a thin elastic band. These socks are perfect for work or school. The band makes them easy to slip into your shoes and keep your feet feeling great throughout your day. They match well with any number of outfits, so you can wear them with jeans or slacks as you head to class or to work. If you’re looking for a different look while staying comfortable, check out our selection of striped women’s socks that come in an array of colors and patterns!



Knee high boot sock

A knee high boot sock is a type of sock that is meant to be worn with knee high boots. These socks are typically made from wool or acrylic because these materials are soft, warm, and often feature intricate patterns on their surface. Knee high boot socks can also be worn with flat boots and some kinds of heeled boots. When choosing knee high boot socks, it’s important to choose one that not only fits you properly but that also fits your shoes properly. For example, if you plan on wearing your knee high boot socks with multiple pairs of shoes then you should buy a smaller pair that fits all shoes better than a large pair that may not fit correctly in every situation.
