US bankers embrace funky socks

There is one way people forced to wear dull work attire can inject some fun into their ensembles, with some bright patterned socks.

Over in the US, a group of bankers have started the Friday Socks movement, which sees them pulling on their boldest footwear on the final day of the working week.

Speaking to Business Insider, Joshua Weiner, who spearheaded the idea, said: "Socks are the most overlooked part of a person's wardrobe.

"After a long 60 hour four day work week, it's nice to wake up in the morning and think about the next day off by putting on Friday Socks that suit up your mood."

He added that as the socks can be easily concealed, they are a good way to inject some fun into a very conservative environment.

So why not adopt the trend on this side of the Atlantic and stock up on some wacky socks to wear on Fridays?

And even during the rest of the week, you don't have to stick to plain black. Some Argyle socks are still smart, but show a bit of personality.
