In the early 1980’s I went to private school. We had to wear uniforms and the only way that we could express ourselves was with our socks and the boys’ boxer shorts that we wore under our unnecessarily short skirts. I remember wearing the most absurdly bright neon socks with my plaid skirts. I think they were bad nylon blends that folded at the ankles. They could be ironically hip in an American Apparel kind of way right about now.
While I’m not really into neon socks anymore, I’m not really into socks at all, I do like a little pop of neon or bold color in an otherwise subtle interior. It always feels so fresh, crisp, hip.
