Remember the days when socks were considered the dullest gift you could possibly receive? Well, since then, socks have undergone a major makeover, steering away from classic white cotton and venturing into bolder, more complex territory, like bright rugby-inspired marled knits and delightful pairs riddled with charming polka dots, multicolored stripes and graphic windowpane lines.
