Happy Feet: A Woman’s Guide to Choosing the Best Socks
August 26th, 2019 by Candis Hall
Did you know that women spend an average of five months of their life thinking about what to wear?
If you look and feel great, then that’s time well-spent. But, what do you spend most of your time thinking about?
Whether your sweater goes with your pants, and which shoes you should wear to match your summer dress?
Don’t neglect to think about your happy feet. We’re making up for lost time with this guide to choosing the best socks. Let’s go!
- Which Fabrics Are Sock Material?
We’ve come a long way from only be able to get your hands on wool socks. Now you can get socks in countless fabrics. Here are just a few of our favorites:
- Merino Wool
You may think wool is for the winter. But, Merino wool is a special breathable fabric and that makes it perfect for any climate.
This make is especially popular among outdoorsy types. It’s more expensive, but Merino wool is ideal for your next hike or camping adventure.
If you want a cheaper man-made fabric which serves the same purpose as Merino wool, then acrylic is the way to go. It’s versatile, comfortable and budget-friendly.
Cotton socks are a good standard sock. You wouldn’t want this for working out. But, they’re perfect with jeans and sneakers.

- How High Can Your Socks Go?
Sock heights come down to personal preference. Yet, you should consider different heights for different activities.
If you’re wearing a cute skirt with sneakers, you may want a pair of ankle socks to hide them away. Yet, if your socks are especially stylish, you may want to show them off with a taller sock.
- Baggy Socks are the Worse
Is there anything worse than a baggy sock? When you have extra fabric falling from your toes, you know you need a smaller size.
Likewise, cramping your toes into a ball isn’t good for your feet either. Just make sure you get the right size to fit snugly on your toes.
- Thick or Thin Socks?
The thickness of the socks is up to you. If you want to feel cozy in your socks, you may want the added comfort of thick socks.
However, if you favor cotton socks, these can get pretty damp if you have thick ones. So, choose wisely which fabric you choose if you want thick socks.
Thinner socks are usually better for the summer. You get to enjoy the added comfort of socks without feeling like you’re wearing washcloths.
What are the Best Socks for You?
There are no right or wrong socks. As long as you purchase high-quality socks, it’s all about the activity and climate.
You don’t want to be jogging in thick cotton socks in the summer. But, neither do you want to let your fashion principles down with practical Merino wool when you’re sporting a cocktail dress.
