Why men’s novelty socks are trending

Every day you go to work, you wear a uniform, do roughly the same thing for the same amount of time before coming home and repeating everything the next day. Wearing a uniform and having set hours is all about creating a team environment. The only question is, ‘How do we make this fun?’

Narrowing our focus to males, who many could say have a stricter uniform than females in the corporate world, there are limited ways in which they can add a little bit of excitement to their day and jazz up their uniform. Now I am not saying that it is harder for men to dress for work, it is likely easier, but they are more confined in their standard dress of a suit and tie.

Men’s novelty socks are the answer. The beautiful thing about men’s novelty socks is that there is infinite versatility and is allows the conservative man to have a little bit of fun. Whilst many offices may have casual Fridays, waiting until then to have your fun with your work attire is boring and when there are other alternatives why not take advantage.

Colour and vibrancy

Wearing accessories that are neither black, blue or grey is a great way to add a little bit of colour and vibrancy to the boring suit. Men’s novelty socks can easily be matched with a tie or pocket handkerchief to add some colour and vibrancy to your outfit whilst remaining stylish. There are so many different designs and colours that you are able to be as extravagant or reserved as you like.

There are simple patterns on men’s novelty socks like striped shades of blue for those not wanting to be too wild. Alternatively, there are the yellow and red and green and blue and pink combinations that throw all of these colours together in stripes and circles and squares to really ignite your corporate accessories.


Wearing the same thing every day without colour or creativity can leave you feeling run down as the routine of the same day week in week out weighs you down. Being able to spice up your mornings by putting on your favourite pair of men’s novelty socks can leave you feeling a little more enthused for the day ahead.

No longer are you stuck in the corporate cycle but you can know that you are wearing a little bit of your own style underneath the smart suit. It allows you to express yourself in a more subtle way and pairing your men’s novelty socks with a pocket square or even your tie can be a nice added touch as well.

Something to talk about

When you meet people or are with colleagues, finding a mutual interest can sometimes be challenging. Taking a quick look to see if the person you are talking to is wearing a pair of men’s novelty socks can be a great conversation starter. When you are sitting down this is a lot easier so maybe try to manufacture a sit down chat. This can be great when meeting clients as you want to build a relationship immediately.


For some, this could be the biggest reason as to why men’s novelty socks are currently trending. Wearing the same old suit everyday can be boring and after a while you may feel and look like you are lacking style with limited effort. Wearing the men’s novelty socks and identifying matching ties or pocket squares can out you back in the style game and have you looking dapper. And never underestimate the power of style in getting that client over the line or convincing your boss to give you a little extra funding.
