Speaking from her website, a cultural commentator noted socks to be one of the best accessories for somebody to have, with patterned socks and other legwear
providing "a simple way to do up your outfit" at little extra cost.
Tres Lola said that over time, experimentation with styles could lead the owner of the legwear
to discover their own "personal sock accessorising style".
It was also noted by the blogger that knee-high socks
were a versatile choice, with argyle-patterned leggings
giving a "vintage" school look.
She added: "We should be embracing socks
in all their patterned, coloured glory, wearing them with pride and showing them off with confident delight."
Also in the news today was Alex James, former bassist with Britpop band Blur, who posed with Socks - his pet whippet - to raise money for the People's Dispensary for Sick Animals with a charity calendar.
