My shoe fetish is something that everyone tends to call me out on. I buy overpriced sneakers and indulge in world of leather boots, but I never paid attention to what goes underneath the shoes — socks!
I was gifted GUCCI socks for Christmas this year from my best friend, and I was amazed to learn that one of the most ICONIC fashion houses made socks. And then, another close friend gifted me expensive socks as well. I didn’t know what was happening; I had never planned on cuffing my pants, or well I did, but not for the reason to show off my socks. It was like the universe was telling me to start investing in these adorable accessories.
Apparently, a lot of my favorite fashion houses made socks. Even with a variety of price ranges. Gucci, Prada, Burberry, Dior, Jacquemus, Off-White, McQueen, Balmain, and Fendi are just a few of the major labels that have entered the sock market.
But how practical are these chausettes? Are they just another item for the super rich who can splurge hundreds on a pair of socks? OR can any of us put some money aside to use these socks to up our fashion game?
I think yes: these socks just might have some style value. A cute pair of designer socks just multiplies how adorable you look when pulled over a pair of leggings; the Gucci, Fendi, or Dior monogram peeking out from under a pair of jeans adds another layer of detail to your outfit. Sheer socks made by some of these designers can make your appeal more sexy. In a sense, if you have the money to spend, why NOT put some cash into designer socks?
Now I get it, these socks might be an investment for some people, and honestly, if you are going to save up for something designer, these are definitely not worth it. You can get equally as hot socks from other brands for a fraction of the price. But on the other hand, if you want to spice up your outfit with a small designer item– socks just might be the move. Why not pair Gucci socks with Converse instead of pairing cheap socks with Gucci Sneakers? Afterall, the first option is cheaper 😉
