Why You Should add Pride Socks to Your Wardrobe
Why You Should wear Pride Socks
Are you looking for the perfect pride accessory to liven up your wardrobe? Look no further than your feet. Yes, pride socks are not only a thing, but they’re the perfect type of pride accessory to showcase your pride in a fun, comfortable and snazzy way. Let’s take a closer look at the types of pride socks and where you can buy them.
Types of Pride Socks
Before we get into the types of pride socks, consider the different types of socks you can find on the market. The most common types of socks are no show socks, ankle socks and knee high socks. Each type of sock has a different level of visibility, so keep this in mind if you want to wear pride socks in order to showcase your pride in your outfit. Consider ankle socks and knee high socks for the most visibility when you’re out and about.
Now, let’s take a closer look at the different aesthetic types of pride socks you can find out there.
Subtle pride socks
Admittedly, subtle pride socks are not the most common. But they do exist. Subtle themed socks tend to have a small rainbow or a line of text or a less obvious pride symbol that you may need to be “in the know” to understand. These are a great option if you want something a little more subtle or you prefer to keep your outfits low-key.
All over pride socks are pretty common. These are the socks that are entirely rainbow or feature rainbow patterns or have giant text on them that say things like “PRIDE” or something similar. These are a great option if you love loud socks or you’re going to an event where you want to make your outfit as pride themed as possible.
When we say themed pride socks, we’re referring to pride socks that fit a specific niche or theme. For instance, socks that are designed for pride allies (and that say things like, as you might have already guessed, “ALLY”); or pride themed socks within a specific niche, such as fandom themed pride socks.
Where to Buy Pride Socks
It’s much easier nowadays to find pride theme stocks than it was in previous decades. Thankfully, this means you might be able to find pride socks at your local big box retail store. Let’s take a closer look at the most common places you can buy pride socks.
- Retail Stores: You can sometimes find pride socks at retail stores, such as big box stores. You probably won’t find much variety, but these stores can be good for some staples.
- Niche Stores: You’ll likely find more variety in the socks available at niche stores, especially stores like Hot Topic that often have a wider variety of pride themed merch than the typical retail big box store.
- Online Shops: If you want the most variety, you’ll need to look at online shops. One great benefit of shopping online is that you can choose to support small businesses!
