TOP 10: STATEMENT SOCKS

By Susannah Tucker, 10 October 2017

The difference between a good outfit and a great outfit can come down to the details. Take socks, for instance. Sometimes the humble sock isn't given its due - it's the outfit afterthought or a strictly-practical accessory. But when done right, a statement sock can elevate a suit to the next level or give your kicks an extra pop with a flash of colour or eye-catching print. Look slick from the toe-up with a new pair that won't get lost in the laundry.
