Why Colorful And Patterned Socks Are So Popular
Posted on 13 October 2017
Simply put, the rule of thumb has always been: when choosing men's socks, the color of the sock should match the color of the trousers. So, when you wear black trousers you should wear black socks and when you wear jeans, you should wear blue socks. However, this is extremely boring. So, not surprisingly, men's colorful and fun socks have been trending.
Even though there are some circumstances where you should follow the rule of thumb we mentioned above, there are many other occasions where wearing colorful socks is perfectly ok.
Whether the socks are covered in superheroes, polka dots, sailboats, American flags, flamingos or bulldogs, crazy socks can actually have some benefits.
As you know, we live in a world where we need to obey to certain rules. However, when you decide to disobey the rule of wearing socks that match your trousers, you're making a statement. You are affirming yourself as a bold individual, who has a huge self-confidence.
Men who tend to wear colorful and fun socks are usually seen as both rebellious and expressive. They are just refusing the social standards that impose some specific colors. They are audacious and they need all our respect for that.
The reality is that what you choose to wear says a lot about your personality. And wearing some colorful and fun socks will tell others that you are an intriguing person, innovative, and even vivacious. In addition, these socks can be a great icebreaker.
However, we live in a world where we are all judged by our appearances. And this is why what you choose to wear has such a great impact.
But what's more interesting in choosing to wear colorful socks is that this can also affect your cognitive process, according to a study conducted at the Northwestern University by Dr. Adam Galinsky, a social psychologist. According to Galinsky, wearing certain clothing can give you the confidence you need to take certain tasks, to challenge the way you think and act.
When you are wearing fun socks, you may be feel braver which may lead to some uncharted waters and more success in your life. After all, you achieve success when you are willing to take risks and accept the unknown.
So what reasons not to wear colorful socks? Why not take the chance and be ready to embrace success?
