Hot Sox

         Socks don’t just keep your feet warm.  They’re also a great accessory to add color and personality to any outfit.

         Based in New York City and started in 1971 by Gary Wolkowitz, Hot Sox makes a variety of classic and fun sock styles for anyone interested in improving their sock collection while making a fashion statement. Offering styles for both men and women, the brand specializes in pop culture and art for your feet. Hot Sox also offers a collection of “Artist Series”, socks that bring masterpieces to wearable pieces of art. Some of the artists featured on these socks include: Vincent Van Gogh, Norman Rockwell, Edvard Munch and Leonardo daVinci. The socks are well detailed and it’s easy to tell what each classic masterpiece the sock represents. Other collections include holidays, travel, sports, food and animals. This bold graphic is something that I haven’t seen from any other sock brand before. And as a bonus, Hot Sox advanced knitting methods yield the most premium socks on the market.

         To mix the style into my own personal aesthetic, I paired the green men’s car sock with a classic brown double monk strap shoe and a pair of brown tweed pants. On top, I would pair it with a blue wool blazer with a green shawl cardigan and a blue polka dot necktie. The green socks coordinate with this layered and comfortable outfit. Best of all, the vintage car graphics are a retro favorite.

         Hot Sox are a great affordable gift option for any family member this upcoming holiday season. They’re a fun, designer socks brand that offers a unique style to complete any look. I highly recommend a visit to their site and browse the wide selection of stylish socks. Men’s styles range from crew to dress socks, and women’s styles range from low to thigh high. It will be easy to find a pair that suits the personality of your recipient. And while you’re shopping, add some to the cart for yourself!
