As we watch the spring and summer fashions hit the retail aisles this season, we are delighted and excited about the fun colors of coral, turquoise, yellow and blue. We’ve blogged about it and discussed how to wear the fun colors.
However, let’s not forget the classic navy blue and white stripes that will always, and I do mean always, be a classic look year after year.
How did this idea originate and why is it still so popular?
It is said that when Coco Chanel was having an affair with the Duke of Westminster she was eager to adapt to his yachting activities and interests so she began to wear wide-legged sailor pants, striped boat neck sweaters and flat boating shoes, inspired by sailor attire.
The look soon became popular when Audrey Hepburn and Katharine Hepburn began sporting the look. It immediately caught on and continued into the 60’s, most often associated with the rich and country club patrons.
There is nothing more comforting than a fuzzy pair of warm socks.
Putting on a pair of them for a winter walk, or just lounging around will make your feet feel amazing.
Do you struggle with deciding what to give as a thoughtful, fun gift for a friend or family member? Did you know that socks are a perfect gift? Why? Because…..
- Socks always fit
- Socks are useful
- Socks are pampering and comforting
- Socks are fun
- Socks are easy to send to someone
- Socks are personal and soft
- Socks are great for teens to adults
When a friend was recently in the hospital, her feet were always cold so she wore a pair of the socks provided by the hospital, However, when I gave her a pair of our pink Microfiber Fuzzy Socks, she said it was the best comforting gift she got.
