SOCKS

Socks are never really questioned, are they? You never get stopped on the street and told “wow, those are really great socks” and at the same time you’re never told that your socks are inappropriate. Socks are a tricky one to figure out, most people put so little thought into them while others can make it their trademark. MJ, for example.
Michael Jackson wore white socks and black shoes; the usual choice would be black on black, but not MJ, he wore those white socks like they were the hottest fashion accessory going. We aren’t quite looking to him for inspiration this time though. Every high schooler who had no choice but to wear orthopaedic bandage-esque white socks whilst dreaming of wearing black- this is for you. Now, we’re celebrating the orthopaedic, bandage style, in-your-face white socks.
