By now you probably know me and that I’m known for going sockless with a lot of my looks…even in winter! But, when I do rock socks, it’s usually not for comfort or warmth LOL but instead to add a little something to my outfit! So, if I’m going to rock a pair of socks, I want them to have a little something extra: a cool design, fun colors, texture, a pattern…you get the point!
My go-to brand when I’m in need of fun, colorful & funky socks? Happy Socks! They’re known for having fun & colorful sock selections in super cool and vibrant patterns and have so many different ones to choose from! They also do really cool Limited Edition sock collabs like their Beatles and Rolling Stone socks with their iconic graphics…gotta love that famous tongue!
I’m always drawn to classic designs, patterns and icons, and it was love at first sight when I saw these Smiley Heart Happy Socks! I love the bold red heart pattern with the touch of the cheeky smiles again the contrasting sock color. I think I tend to gravitate towards bold simplistic patterns when it comes to socks, rather than overly busy and colorful…but that’s just me! That’s why these were right up my alley and I immediately knew what pieces I was going to rock with them!
I feel like some might normally think to only want to rock these during Valentine’s day, but I’m all for the love & smiles all year long. Honestly, this kind of pattern is so in right now and is the kind of classic icon that just doesn’t get played out. I mean, check out my sneakers! It was only right that I played up the heart icon with these. I kept the rest of my outfit simple but had to bring out that red! I’m digging this casual street look with these Happy Socks! I also grabbed this same pair in the red because I just loved the pattern so much, but my wife already snagged them from me! 🙂
