What Should You Wear Today?

Some may consider socks as good to have but not really necessary. They may be a part of our wardrobe but more often than not, they seem to be overlooked. We put them on every morning, take them off after a long day, and toss them into the laundry basket without giving them even the slightest attention, but socks are actually important. Let us tell you why.

Wearing socks is imaportant for the overall health of your feet. The first and the most obvious reason why we wear socks is because of hygiene— wearing socks help keep our feet dry and reduce foul odors. The feet have a lot of sweat glands and in result, moisture can develop. Consequently, when the feet are exposed to prolonged moisture, there is a potential for bacteria and fungal infections to grow—and foot fungus thrives in places that are warm, dark, and moist—which is exactly how the inside of a shoe is.

Another reason why we should wear socks is to protect our feet from blisters or calluses caused by worn out insoles or the friction between the shoes and feet. In addition, wearing socks helps in keeping our feet smooth and minimizes cracking or dryness.

Aside from the health benefits, wearing socks accentuate one’s overall outfit and add aesthetic appeal to it. There’s really no proper or improper way to wear socks but the rule of thumb on how to wear socks is: your socks should match one another and not have holes or visible stains.

Also, when choosing what socks to wear, you should consider the following: your pants, your shoes, and where you’re going. If you’re unsure, play it safe with solid colors like black, brown, or navy. In terms of material, you should go for cotton, garterless, anti-slip or coffee socks as they each have their own benefits. It also might be a good idea to invest in good quality socks so you don’t have to worry about tearing or deformation. Besides, you’ll be comfortable for much longer and your feet will thank you.

Now, everytime you think about what you’re going to wear for the day, the question shouldn’t be “should I wear socks today?” Instead, it should be “what Darlington or Exped socks should I wear today?”
