The big sock trends for 2017

Posted by SockShop

With the new year comes new fashion trends. It’s out with the old and in with the new. And while most of us can’t afford to update our wardrobe every six months to meet the whims of some fashion designers, we can afford to pick up some statement socks that can help transform 2016’s clothing into your new favourite outfit for 2017.

Shoes with socks

Following hot on the heels (pun intended) of socks and sandals comes the 2017 version – socks and shoes.

Whether you embrace the chunky shoe trend that’s striding proudly into 2017 or you prefer low slung footwear, you’ve got to have your socks showing, according to fashion experts.

And why not – socks are a great way to boost your shoes’ look by either providing contrasting colours and texture, or completing them.

In fact, one big trend is for perfectly matching socks and shoes – think all pair of yellow socks.

Checkerboard

The monochrome look for men was a big look in 2016. And for 2017 it’s staying with us. But instead of stripes and block colouring, the 2017 version will embrace the black and white checkerboard.

Think 90s Van’s trainers or two-tone Ska outfits. Checkerboard socks are a great way to bridge the colour gap between black trousers and white

Utility

While a lot of modern fashion is seen as disposable, some designers are going the other way and providing high quality performance items that will last.
