Unique, printed socks have been a huge trend lately. This resurgence is quickly gaining momentum because of celebrity endorsements, unique styles, and added comfort.
"Designer" socks are cool because they put the focus on a much needed accessory that typically gets no love.
Socks are a peculiar accessory because everyone needs them and they typically go unnoticed, so they never get too much attention. But I’m all for this sock trend, especially because it helps to express individuality in a subtle way.
Everyone from NBA superstar Dwayne Wade to reality TV veteran, Rob Kardashian is getting into the crazy sock game with a ton of other celebs showing off their unique finds on Instagram too.
These printed socks are awesome for a few reasons: they’re not too expensive (typically they range between the $10-$30 per pair), they look good, they feel better than your average white sweat socks, and they complement an outfit perfectly or imperfectly.
A unique independent brand, Cool Socks has upped the ante by taking beloved brands and famous people and plastering the images all over Nike Dri-Fit socks (see above). Cool Socks pulls away from the typical pack because their socks are much more expensive typically ranging between $45-$60 for a pair of socks. Cool Socks can charge so much because they’re one of the only companies around doing this type of style. And I will give it to them, their designs are definitely eye catching and enviable.
Cool Socks aside, my personal favorite is Stance Socks. I was put on to them by a friend (thanks Malcolm) a few weeks ago and since then I’ve been addicted to collecting the most unique pairs I can get my hands on.
To further the trend, Yahoo wrote a story over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, asking readers to ‘guess the owner’ of various crazy socks.
The Yahoo post wasn’t limited to just guys but proved that girls are also in on the trend too. The slideshow highlighted stars like Rita Ora (below), Kendall Jenner, and others wearing their favorite crazy socks.
While this isn’t a brand new thing, it has been gaining a lot of attention lately because its a perfect way to express some individualism and set yourself apart from the average tube sock wearers.
Brands like San Francisco-based streetwear company Huf have been selling printed socks for years now but it seems like the trend is finally seeping into mainstream away from the targeted streetwear/skateboard demographic.
I’d urge you to get in on the trend while its still cool, because its only a matter of time until your grandma is rocking kooky socks.
Fancy has a ton of these cool socks too. Here are some of my favorites. With holiday season approaching fast, socks make the perfect inexpensive stocking-stuffer:
WHAT THE WAY YOU SAY “BRO” SAYS ABOUT YOUR TASTE IN RAP MUSIC
ONE OF THE AMAZING THINGS ABOUT LANGUAGE IS THAT SUBTLE CHANGES OF INFLECTION CAN SPEAK VOLUMES. SUCH IS THE WAY WITH THE WORD “BRO.” HERE IS A VERY WELL-RESEARCHED LIST ON WHAT THE WAY YOU SAY “BRO” SAYS ABOUT YOUR TASTE IN RAP MUSIC.
THE STANDARD PRONUNCIATION OF THE WORD “BRO.” STANDARD PEOPLE LIKE DRAKE. ERGO, YOU LIKE DRAKE.
BRAH, DO YOU EVEN SURF, BRAH? LISTEN TO DOM KENNEDY.
BX ALL DAY. SHOUT OUT KID MERO. FRENCH MONTANA, JUHURRRD?
YOU ARE PROBABLY SAYING THE WORD “BREH” IRONICALLY, BUT IF YOU AREN’T, YOU PROBABLY LIKE KID INK.
YOU ARE IN A FRAT, AND YELAWOLF IS YOUR LORD AND SAVIOR.
YOU ARE BRITISH. YOU THINK WILEY L IS THE GREATEST RAPPER ALIVE AND ARE UPSET AT TINIE TEMPAH FOR REASONS YOU CANNOT FULLY ARTICULATE.
NOBODY SAYS “BRO” THIS WAY, BUT THIS WAS AN EXCUSE FOR US TO TALK ABOUT CHEESE.
One of the myths we have about creativity is that sometimes we have a calling, that you know that every day of your life, when in truth, half of writing a first draft is very much about failure.
I used to believe in the myth of the big idea: The big idea hits and you never look back. It’s sort of like when you meet a couple that’s been together for a long time and the question you ask is “How did you guys meet?” And there’s always a great story. But the real question — and the one that hopefully you’re too polite to ask — isn’t “How did you guys meet?” but “How did you stick together?” That’s the story of writing a book. How did you stick with it? How did you get through the day-to-day? I think one of the reasons you get so many questions about process — “Do you plot?” “How do you do it?” “How do you do it every day?” — is because people want to believe there’s a way to take the pain out of the process of writing. And there really isn’t. You’re going to have days that are terrible.
