The Pros And Cons Of Wearing Crazy Socks

Why would you wear crazy socks – this blog shows why people do

Standing Out From The Crowd

Crazy socks will make a statement when you wear them and they will differentiate you from the crowd.  If this is your goal, the crazy socks will be a good method to achieve this. However, you do have to consider that standing out could make you the odd one out.  You could also be construed as weird as crazy socks are generally bold and outlandish.

The designs on these socks have been created to be contrasting and make an extreme statement.  This means that there is no room for subtlety when you wear these socks. If you are looking for a stylish outfit, you might need to avoid these types of socks.

If your goal is actually to be more stylish and well-dressed, you should stay away from crazy socks as they will be over the top.  When you have a bold accessory like crazy socks, they will draw the eye to your feet and this could negate the entire style you are looking to achieve.  While they could be seen as eccentric, you will need to be careful.

You can create an entire outfit that frames you as a person and include some loud accessories.  However, when you have too many loud pieces the harmony of the outfit will be lost. If you are going to be paring the crazy socks with a suit, you need to consider if you would be comfortable wearing tacos or these images of your dog like in these socks from lovimals on your tie.  If the answer is no, you should avoid the crazy socks.

It Is A Cry For Attention

Wearing crazy socks can be seen as you stating that you are unable to get people to notice you in any other way.  This is why you have resorted to the overly bold socks because you have no other options available. This is something that you will want to avoid because it comes with other negative connotations.

They Are Often Low Quality

Crazy socks will generally be fairly cheap and to keep the price low, low-quality materials will be used.  This means that your crazy socks will generally have a lot of nylon in them. This will limit the range of sizes which are available and will reduce the durability of the socks.  The low-quality of the sock does provide you with the ability to invest in more and not spend very much when doing this.

When you look at crazy socks, you will notice that they often come in short lengths only.  There are very few that will go over the calf and as they have nylon they are limited in size.  Most of the crazy socks on the market will be a one size fits all or the manufacturer will only have three different sizes.  The problem with this is the fact that the socks will slide down and expose your ankles while you wear them.

When you do get cotton crazy socks, the cotton will generally be of a lower quality.  The cotton is generally combined with polyester and nylon to stretch it out and keep the overall price of the socks down.  While you should be able to find some higher quality crazy socks, this is generally fairly difficult to do.

Crazy socks are actually a disposable fashion item and are part of the throwaway culture due to the fact that they will not last very long.  These socks are not something that you wear again and again. You will generally not be able to easily match these socks with your clothing and this is one of the reasons why you might want to avoid them completely.  

Of course, this is actually a personal preference.  If you want to make a statement with your clothing, you can try to do this with socks.  However, if you want to display a bit more style in your clothing and want a more elegant wardrobe, you need to avoid these socks.

In these cases, you should look at solid colors or two-tone socks instead.  These socks will still add some personality to your look, but they will not have the same obnoxious tone as crazy socks.  It is also important to note that if you wear crazy socks, you are less likely to be taken seriously. This is due to the fact that these socks are most closely associated with teenagers and not working professionals.

Who Could Wear Crazy Socks?

There are some people who should look at crazy socks and they are people who want to be outlandish or do not mind being the odd person out.  If you choose the crazy socks correctly, you could wear them with at any time. If the socks are grey and orange, you could pair them with brown tones as they will match.  You can also wear bright crazy socks with denim to create a colorful accessory.

Montecristi Hats

Montecristi Hats - Panama Hats

If you’re like me, then you’ve got travel on your mind. I honestly have it on my mind 24/7, but especially now thinking of summery and warm destinations where I can switch up my style and wear outfits I wouldn’t normally wear at home. One hat that is synonymous with warm destinations are Panama Hats, which I only recently learned aren’t even necessarily unique to Panama. The hat has an interesting history related to a very famous photo of President Teddy Roosevelt at the Panama Canal wearing a distinctive hat, but in fact the hat was a Montecristi hat hailing from Ecuador. Obviously since the opening of the Panama Canal was such a monumental historical event, the context of the hat got lost in the mix. The Montecristi hat is made of toquilla straw which grows in Ecuador, and is handmade by artisans in Ecuador in the province of Manabi. Name aside, I can’t think of a better hat for a warm destination. You can wear the Montecristi hat with a suit, sundress, bikini, or literally anything else. Somehow, someway, they can look dressy and casual at the same time. Men and women look equally fabulous in them. Depending on your budget, Ecuadorian Hands offers a huge variety of Montecristi hat styles, trims, and weave quality, giving you truly the exact hat you’re dreaming of. They also come in a variety of natural colors and even pastel shades. Whether you go for something classic or something more ornate, I can’t think of a better pieces to finish off an outfit. And by the way, these hats ship free anywhere in the world!
