The cooler weather means that now I will have to wear socks again.
For those of you that may not have gathered from previous blog posts, I usually go sans socks during the warmer months. I think it’s a nice look during the hot days of summer and as someone who doesn’t have sweaty feet, I can get away with it just fine.
But now the weather is turning cooler here in the Denver area and the last thing I want is cold feet. Skimping on the socks in November doesn’t suggest avant-garde sartorial sense, but instead conveys the notion that perhaps you just forgot your socks altogether!
Therefore, I thought that now is a good time to write a post on socks, why not? So I reached into my closet and thought I would give you the rundown on (3) different styles with the aim of inspiring you to add a little diversity to your own sock drawer this season.
Let’s get down to business and boost your sock appeal! Here are (3) great sock options for fall.
1. Earth toned argyle
The most conservative of the (3), this one is relatively basic – earth tones and nothing too flashy. Argyle is always a fun choice and beats the heck out of any solid.
2. Polka dots
The darker red background suggests some of the more scenic leaves that are changing during this time of the year and the polka dots just make things all the more fun. Plus, it’s perfect for a pair of burgundy jeans.
This sock is going to stand out a bit. There’s really no getting around it, but that’s sort of the point, isn’t it?! If you’re feeling creative you can match the socks to your cardigan or neck tie – or pocket square! Then you really start to frame your wardrobe.
If the burgandy color is too strong for you then opt for a different color, but do yourself a favor and stick with polka dots, because the world needs more polka dots.
3. Colorful stripes
Filled with great fall colors, this pattern will be right there with you until the snow is consistently falling. And with a handful of different colors you can match just about anything to it. Just like the polka dot sock above, try matching the colors in this striped sock to something you’re wearing up top.
So there you have it. Three socks that will hopefully inspire you to add a little argyle and/or color to your sock rotation this fall.
And remember fellas, friends don’t let friends wear white socks to the office.
