Wearing fun socks is a simple, yet personal way to show your mood and style. You can combine socks with outfits on days you do not want all the focus on your feet, or choose to wear socks that stand out from your clothes and watch as other people react to your statement. Sock outfit ideas and choices do not have to be complicated, so consider the following sock outfit ideas to incorporate fun sock patterns into your style.
Whether you work in an office, a factory, a farm, outside or are still at a school, chances are that most days you wear socks to work. Colorful socks worn with ankle-length pants, skirts, shorts or jeans are a fun way to add bursts of joy to your day. Choose a funky pattern that draws the eye toward your socks and makes you smile when you need an at-work mood boost. You can also select compression socks with funky colors and patterns such as pink funfetti to support your legs during long hours of standing at work, which is especially helpful if you experience varicose vein discomfort.
Socks with style and support are helpful during your workouts. Pair bright-colored knee-high socks with shorts during your cardiovascular exercise sessions to support your lower legs and boost your mood. Bright colors are delightful at the gym if you are feeling a lack of motivation and wearing these colors on your lower legs is the perfect place to mask sweat, wick moisture away from the body and keep you going. Compression socks at the gym increase circulation throughout your legs which increases your endurance and helps you recover quicker.
Long travel days can make even the best traveler tired. Colorful compression socks worn while traveling decrease your risk for blood clots in your lower legs. In addition, colorful socks with funky patterns show your style and keep your lower legs warm, which is ideal if you have to walk for long distances through the airport, to catch a train or subway or to your lodging. You can combine socks with outfits for travel and keep your look one color, but add a pop of pattern. For example, if you prefer to travel wearing black pants, select a black sock, but one that has polka dots, or your favorite animal for a small burst of uniqueness.
Not only are you learning how to match socks with your outfit, but you also understand socks can be worn with a variety of footwear. At work, you probably dress shoes, high heels, sandals or tennis shoes, and socks pair with all these types of footwear. A compression sock is helpful because it does not slip around in your shoe or on your foot so pairing a compression sock with a bold color or pattern can easily be worn with high heels, dress shoes, sandals or tennis shoes.
How to Match Socks With Your Outfit
- If your goal is to blend in your socks with your outfit, aim to choose socks that are the same color as your shirt or pants, or that have a similar color to them. For example, if you enjoy wearing jeans, socks with shades of blue are easily matched to your pants.
- If tan khakis are your go-to pant, your color options are expanded since tan is more of a neutral color, but if you wear a green shirt with your tan pants, select a sock that has both colors for a blended look.
- Wear socks with a variety of footwear.
- Wear socks to work or the gym and use compression socks while traveling.
