I don’t mean to brag, but I have an amazing dress sock collection. Ah-may-zing! I get the biggest rush when I am able to match wild and fun socks with whatever I’m wearing to the office that day. My motto is: “All business upstairs, but a party downstairs!”

For my recent birthday, I received some spectacular socks (thanks, Mom). Just look!

Fun Socks

Jealous of my collection? Don’t be! You too can have some fun socks! My go-to sock spots are: The Joy of Socks, Sock it to Me, Absolute Socks and Bold Socks.

And if you’re curious — yes,  I every now and then must go boring and wear ho-hum blue, black or brown socks. I was in a wedding recently and wore the standard black — I feared my socks may take attention off the bride.

What say you? Guys, are you bold enough to throw some flair on your feet? Ladies, think the man in your life would appreciate a pair of wild socks?

    I like to see a well dressed man and then catch a glimpse of his socks and they are a completely unexpected surprise. Humor is good even in socks.

    I personally love the colorful sock trend…my fave is Happy Socks. Yes Happy Socks. This trend has also been featured in Wall Street Journal as an accessory for the boring suit!
