Socks 'don't get credit they deserve'
Socks are way too underrated when it comes to the fashion items which get the most respect, according to one clothing lover. explained its viewpoint: "Socks get a pretty raw deal. When you think about it, what other item of clothing (besides gloves) face the emotional devastation of losing a partner?"

Even worse is how they are relegated to such a low status by their wearers, stuffing them into the back of a wardrobe and considered to be "somewhere between shutter shades and doo rags" in terms of "sartorial importance", it added.

However, their importance in every outfit is hard to deny, with the source asserting that their obscuring with footwear is the fault of "glory-hogging shoes".

Despite the promotion of the legwear, one style is to be avoided, with pointing to the classic English tourist's pair of socks.

This week, it was leggings which were again in the limelight, with Rachel Pugh of the Weekender promoting the trend of loud designs which can be found in today's market.
