Sometimes, socks just want to have fun. I thought I would start out this week by writing about how the graphics or design of a sock can really make a statement. I bought the above socks at Gap a few weeks ago because the lettering and colors caught my eye. The combination of a deeper, more grounded body color, paired with the bright contrast of the letters, creates a balanced design that indeed, made me "smile."
This style is a comfortable size for my foot, perhaps a little loose, but not bothersome. The quality and hand-feel is decent, with a high crew silhouette; good for cold weather. If you're looking for a fun selection of holiday socks, check out the selection online.
