Why Do People Wear Novelty Socks?

Novelty socks are a hot fashion trend for both men and women. The question is: why do people wear novelty socks? A lot of people like to wear them as a way of being unique and making an individual statement. Others wear them as a form of self-expression. Some people like to wear novelty socks because they are fun and quirky, but there’s more than just that going on here!

The impact wearing a pair of fun and creative socks can be huge. Doing so can boost your self-esteem, make you feel more creative and bring a smile to someone else’s face!

Socks have been around for centuries but what we can tell it wasn't until the 1920's when they began to turn into an art form. One of the the first times novelty socks were seen was in 1926 with a man wearing them in a painting by Matisse. He was wearing red, white and blue striped socks! 

The truth behind why people wear novelty socks is that they allow you to be different and show off your personality while still being comfortable. Whether it's because of the nature of their design as eye catching or simply for fashion.
