Fashion exists because we like to make statements with what we wear. From crooked caps to Converse sneakers, our apparel is supposed to say something about who we are. For a long time, socks were excluded from this very exclusive and elite club of ‘fashionable items.’
Over time, they’ve somehow managed to earn their place in the fashion world, and they’re no longer just seen as hidden fungus footguards. Today, these accessories are used to amuse, amaze, and confuddle. We even have sock influencers, astounding us with shots of their colorful footwear.
Do you want to get in on the sock-shenanigans? Good. Here are some of the most fantastic fashion trends and patterns that you absolutely need in your closet for 2020.
Why bother looking for something unique at an online store if you can have your footwear custom made? There are several options available, and you can customize everything from the length to the look and material.
Custom socks aren’t just for having random fun with color and design. They’re also great for sports teams and clubs to show who they are or support.
Whether you’re a player or just a rabid fan, get branded goodies to broadcast your adoration. You can even get them styled in different ways, like this product at Elite Sport Socks; there are many others you can find online.
Do you like pineapple on pizza or avocado with jam? Show your food critics just how much you care about their finicky opinions by proudly displaying your love for weird combinations.
If you prefer treating your palate to more normal meal choices, don’t worry. You can still turn your feet into tacos, hamburgers, or even lobsters – if that’s your thing.
There’s nothing wrong with showcasing your love for food on your socks, even if we’re not sure why it’s become such a hot trend. That said, you’ll find many different delicious and nauseating options at online stores.
Become Successful With Color
Tacky is the new tubular, so take out your corniest socks and make a statement. From bright and weird neon combinations to mesmerizing tie-dye, don’t be afraid to experiment with color.
If you’re still not sure about this latest trend of bright footwear, you should reconsider. In fact, if you’re an entrepreneur or business owner, wearing colorful socks is scientifically proven to make you successful.
Obviously, you’ll still need to put in the work, but your non-conformist purple knee-lengths with green parrots are definitely going to turn a few heads.
Don’t Mix and Match
While this might sound like the most boring item on this list, you’d be surprised just how much fun you can have with it. Imagine, for example, wearing your blinding whites with matching shoes. While you might burn a few retinas, you’ll undoubtedly make a statement while doing so.
You can also pair black socks and shoes, or opt for neutral browns, wacky neon colors, etc. If you do decide to go for this oddly strange combination, don’t fold them down. Pull them up high and flaunt your look proudly.
Put Them on Display
What’s the point of wearing maniacal eye-sore socks if you don’t show them off? Remember when people decided to wear them with sandals? Shockingly, that’s no longer a crime against fashion. Some even consider it healthy and practical.
You can also pair your accessories with shorts or skirts, making them clearly visible to everyone around you.
If you’re going to make a fashion statement with socks, commit to the decision. You’ll likely thrill friends and strangers alike with your mustard yellow and shocking pink footwear.
Not only have socks finally earned their place in fashionable society, but they’ve also turned it completely on its head. From crazy hues to nauseatingly fun patterns, they’re adding color to our lives in entertaining and hilarious ways.
If you want to make a statement during the cold season, don’t be afraid to include some creative and cozy socks in your outfit.
