Statement socks for men

Statement socks for men

Women are so lucky when it comes to fashion. We’ve got so many layers to play with, we can change our style, our mood, even our personality, just by changing the style of our lingerie. Men, on the other hand, aren’t so lucky in this department. They have boxers and uhh…pants. But the latest fashion trend currently sweeping Europe looks set to give men the ‘Brosiery’ lift they need. With socks.

“Socks are a way that I can stand out at work,”says Roland Gonzales, who works in finance in New York, talking to The Atlantic.“Everyone wears the same sort of conservative uniform,” he says. “This is a way to personalize my work wardrobe.”

Statement socks have always been seen as an upper class eccentricity. Think pink or worse, salmon. Ugh. But now with celebrities like Rob Kardashian bringing out his own line of socks, through Neiman Marcus, the younger, trendier men are being targeted. According to the article in the Atlantic, sales for Kardashian’s line tripled in the first six months of business,because young men want socks with ‘YOLO’ and ‘XXX on them.’

But we’re not only talking Nike sports socks here, or young trendy fun lines, high fashion labels have also jumped in on the act. Designers such as Missoni and Henrik Vibskov have featured socks in their AW 2014 collections. Check out the gorgeous Lushlee collection or the diverse range from Nordstrom. Men’s socks are more than black, white, sports or eccentric these days. They are designer, cutting edge and a new way for men to make a fashion statement. Break out and set your ankles free!
