Fashion Trend


There is a new men's fashion trend sweeping around the world these days, bright, bold, colorful socks!  I have to admit when I first saw these socks my thought was "what a bold personality this guy must have".  I mentioned it to a male friend and that's when I learned that this is definitely a new trend.  So I did some Googling and sure enough, there are flashy socks everywhere.  I like it.  You have to admit, this is way, way better than exposing your "briefs" for all the world to see.

I have a new post on Sharon's Sojourns today.  I'm visiting a tiny Southern California mountain escape.  Slice of pie anyone?

I only use colorful socks these days.

Those shoes look pretty worn and the duffs on the pants tells me it's also older guys wearing this new fashion. Makes sense to me. It's almost impossible to find a pair of white tennis shoes anymore so why not wear colorful socks. I have a friend who has intentionally worn mismatched socks for many years.

This is yet another trend that passed by me. Former President George H.W. Bush (the elder) may have started this trend. Or maybe it was Julie's grandmother.

Looks a startling, esp since the shoes are quite conservative. I can't imagine my husband wearing them . . . I'll have to get his reaction; he wouldn't wear these nor have his briefs showing, either. Just last week while buying tights, I saw the same trend in women's wear. Bought a pair of black and white for myself and will get the bolder colors for my granddaughter if she wants one.

My sone has worn colorful socks for years and from time to time I think of it before buying more black, charcoal or navy socks.

I haven't noticed the socks but I have seen some pretty wild colors of shoes around town. I swear they must glow in the dark. I had a heck of a time finding a pair of white tennis shoes to buy for myself.

So much better than the briefs thing Sharon :) I like the colourful sock thing a lot, guess I'm used to it with Aimee :)

I noticed it too and I really like it. It bring smiles around.

I seldom wear socks but if I did I'd get some of these bright colored ones. And probably wear them mis-matched, like G.H.W. Bush.

I tend to go for dark socks, but occasionally I look around for something off kilter instead.

RedPat said...

I'd wear those striped socks, Sharon!

Randy said...

My manager has taken to wearing the same style lately.

Lois said...

Oh yes, much better than saggy pants!

Cool, Circus Fashion :-)

Bright socks have been a tradition in the UK for several years, at least -- when we got here it was one of the first fashion trends I noticed!

"... this is way, way better than exposing your "briefs" for all the world to see."... LOL! I couldn't agree more with you!
