We have the need to be dressed. And sometimes we are overdressed. We sleep in pajamas, work in proper clothes, go to school in uniforms and swimming in swimsuits, we do sports in athletic attire, go to dinner in casual wear, to official events in formal dresses and suits.
Wearing, for example, the tailor-made suit makes you in the eyes of others a confident, successful, powerful, elegant, well-earning person, among others. And most probably wearing the “right” clothing makes you feel comfortable. So, it does matter to the others, and most probably to you too, what you choose to wear to a specific party, dinner, get-together. And to every occasion, while wearing convenient and fitting clothing, you combine it with proper sneakers. Sneakers with easy shoelaces, sports sneakers, winter boots, baby boots, high heels, no heels, flats, and much more different styles of sneakers.
Why Socks and Laces Matter?
So, if you are ready to wear sneakers you certainly do choose some socks, right? What if you have been told, that there is scientific research done with socks and laces, and by wearing them in a specific way or color combination, you are able to make a statement? If you do not read fashion articles or the latest research on socks and well-being, most probably you are smiling while reading this. But the reality is different, as different as each casual or formal dress code. So, which color are you going to choose? How are you going to wear them?
Let us start with the message you want to send to your people. You are creative, outgoing, independent, maybe even feeling powerful. Or maybe you are an introvert or a more romantic person. You may show all of your feelings and some character by choosing the right laces and socks. White, black, red, green, multicolor.
Socks and laces besides sneakers speak miles about a person in exactly the same way as eyeglasses or your hairstyle. You can show all of your character and attitude, like being the playful one, or the forever romantic, the responsible or the super creative human being. If you think out of the line, people will see you, will try to copy you. Putting on a – red sock and laces on your sneakers for example – while wearing a dark button-down shirt and white trousers might state exactly the extravagant side of your character and the attraction seeking person you are. Be creative, but respectful.
Don’t Go Overboard While Pairing Socks and Laces
Just pay attention as to not to do extreme things, like the color or style of the laces and sneakers worn, if you are expected to fit in the dress code of an event. It could show your attitude as inappropriate or that you are not trying to harmonize with the party. Most guests would probably consider you disrespectful towards them.
So while going for the wow effect, always keep in mind the occasion. Simple changes like having easy shoelaces or no tie laces on your sneakers, instead of having dress sneakers while wearing a suit, could be a better way to differ.
By wearing the right type of sneakers, clothing, socks, and laces, you are going to make a statement — to show others, how you want them to see you and to feel appreciated and accepted.
