29 Crazy Graphic Novelty & Funky Dress Socks

…With a Little Sock History Lesson on the Side

By: RJ Phillips

We wake up every morning and repeatedly enwrap ourselves in attire that has been chosen for us.  Whether it is a school uniform, a business suit, a hot dog costume, or any other appointed ensemble, we surrender our personalities on a daily basis in order to accommodate our 9-5’s.  The demoralizing issue however is the fact that the majority of our time spent on this earth is used to falsely depict our character.  Hence why when you see that bashful coworker in the supermarket rocking a well-worn Misfits T-Shirt you have to do a double take.  Sadly, this relinquishing compliance (that we all fall victim to) subtlety, yet intentionally, morphs us into just another face in the crowd. 

 

Let Your Feet do the Talking

What if we told you that there may be a way to incorporate your 5-9 into your 9-5 without jeopardizing your reputation and/or most importantly, your paycheck.  A way to express who you really are without drawing too much attention to yourself but just enough for someone to ponder “did I just see what I think I saw?”  A way to make it through your grueling work or school day with a little more spring in your step.  Well there is.  So put on your best pair of floods and we’ll explain how!

 

Funky Dress Socks Can Be Loud?  Listen Up!

 According to GQ writer David Bazner: “Often overlooked, socks are one of the easiest ways to let people know what kind of mood you’re in. You might think an accessory that spends a good amount of time covered by a pant leg as an item you shouldn’t pay too much attention to, but the fact that you can flash some bold style when you sit down or roll up a cuff is what makes wearing louder socks appealing”. 

Thanks in part to the Hollywood resurrection of the Great Gatsby set back in the roaring 20’s, brightly patterned, bold, fun, and colorful dress socks are back with a vengeance. In simultaneous fashion, funky dress socks warn everyone around you that although you are currently in business mode, a party can erupt at any time (no mullet required).  Be careful though, the brief emanation of a funky dress sock through that small window of the cuff and the shoe can create a magnetizing mystique that may attract the attention of that certain someone.
