People Who Wear Crazy Socks Are Successful & Intriguing

Whether they’re covered in polka dots, lobsters, American flags, superheroes, bulldogs, sailboats or robots, crazy socks have a number of hidden benefits.

In a world where conformity often reigns supreme, it takes a bold individual to throw on a pair of socks covered in arbitrary neon colors and proudly exhibit them in public.

People who wear crazy socks are rebellious and expressive.

Wacky sock wearers are leading a subtle revolution against uniforms and propriety.

They refuse to let social standards dictate what adorns their feet, and other people, who aren’t audacious enough to wear dragon-patterned socks, respect them for it.

Throughout history, there are myriad examples of fashion serving subversive purposes, some more dramatic than others.

In Scotland, for example, tartan has a long history as a symbol of rebellion.

During the 18th century, there were revolts against the British crown in the Scottish Highlands, known as the Jacobite Uprisings.

At the time, people often wore tartan to signify they sympathized with the rebellion, the Guardian highlights.

Tartan became so associated with the uprisings that after the rebels were ultimately defeated at the Battle of Culloden, the British crown made it illegal to wear it with the 1746 Dress Act.

Consequently, Scots couldn’t legally wear kilts until the act was repealed in 1782.

While wearing crazy socks isn’t nearly as subversive or political, it’s still a jab at the status quo and an expression of individuality.

What you wear says a lot about your personality, and as Quartz contends, colorful socks help emanate a more vivacious, innovative and intriguing image, particularly at work:

Colorful or character socks show playfulness and make a great icebreaker or way to connect with others.

This makes a lot of sense, as research shows our clothing choices often dictate the ways others view and treat us.

While it would be nice to live in a world where people didn’t immediately judge one another off appearances, that’s simply not the case at the moment.

More importantly, what we wear also impacts the way we feel about ourselves, or our self-perception.

A study conducted at Northwestern University by social psychologist Dr. Adam Galinsky, highlighted by the New York Times, revealed our clothing choices affect our cognitive processes.

This is related to a scientific field known as embodied cognition, which argues we think with both our brains and bodies.

Speaking with the Times, Galinsky stated: Clothes invade the body and brain, putting the wearer into a different psychological state.

In other words, wearing certain clothing can give us the confidence to take on certain tasks, literally changing the way we think and act.

Thus, wearing a crazy pair of socks might help us feel braver and more unpredictable, leading us to uncharted waters and, in turn, greater success in life.

Success is largely achieved by leaping into the unknown and embracing risks. If you’re going to take a leap of faith and willingly approach challenging situations, you might as well be wearing some wacky socks when you do. Even if you fail, you’ll still look amazing.

The best part about crazy socks is they’re unisex, and look equally great on men and women. So let’s all conquer the world together while wearing some insane-looking socks, promoting gender-neutrality in the process.

Silicon Valley is often credited with making crazy socks trendy, but the New York Times notes, Showy socks hark back to the 1700s, when people wore them embroidered or in outlandish colors, fashion historians say.

Today, everyone from tech executives to former presidents are donning them.

Accordingly, one might say there’s a palpable connection between crazy socks and successful people.

But no matter who you are, wearing wacky socks is bold and beautiful.

If you’re currently wearing some flamboyantly colored socks or something of the like, kudos to you, you little rebel.

A Better T-Shirt

The T-shirt  started as the standard-issue undershirt of US soldiers, buried beneath the military overshirt. Then, after WWI veterans returned from abroad, the tee moved outward, being worn not as undershirt, but as a garment independent of an outer layer. By the ’50s, the white tee had become mainstream and iconic: think Henry Winkler or Marlon Brando.

The enduring appeal of the t-shirt can largely be attributed to its versatility. Pair a t-shirt with jeans, and the resulting look is as cool today, as it was at its inception in the 1950s. A classic t-shirt worn with good tailoring is unbeatable when it comes to achieving effortless style.



Why every man should have white t-shirts in their closet?

The perfect white t-shirt

Women find a man in a plain white T-shirt up to 12 per cent more attractive, scientists claim. 

A plain white T-shirt can create an illusion that broadens the shoulders and slims the waist, producing a more V-shaped body, which is a top sign of masculinity. 

The highest increase in good looks were for men who were the most out of the shape, according to researchers at Nottingham Trent University. 

Men who were already well toned only saw a slight increase in their attractiveness rating when they wore the white short-sleeved top with a large black letter T printed on the front. 

In contrast, those wearing a top with an upside-down T, with the bar across their middle, were up to 12 per cent less attractive to women aged 18 to 25.

The results suggest shifting the focus to a man’s stomach reduces his desirability. 

Nottingham Trent University psychologist Dr Andrew Dunn told the Daily Mail: “The effect was most notable for normal men with a waist as wide as their shoulders. 

“Whereas with those who are already in good shape, the T was simply amplifying the body shape they already had, so the benefit was less marked.” 

The team said a waist-to-chest ratio (WCR) of between 0.7 and 0.8 - where the shoulders are around 20 per cent broader than the hips - was seen as the ideal. 

Dr Dunn said: “The wider barred ‘T’ seems to emphasise the upper chest when upright, which accentuates men’s ‘optimum’ shape. The opposite happens when inverted. 

“WCR is one of just a number of body measures that humans use to judge attractiveness and health. Our ability to detect, process and use this information appears to be implicit. 

“The brain and sensory mechanism underpinning this are probably evolved and are almost certainly managing what we look for and how we respond.” 

He said that horizontal bar on the T-shirt had to be the same length or longer than the vertical bar for the most effect. 

The study involved showing 30 female undergraduates, aged 18 to 25, images of five different male body shapes and asked them to mark their perceived attractiveness and health. 

He added: “Clearly there are individual tastes and preferences, but we can see here how fashion could have an implicit positive or negative effect on perceived attractiveness and health. 

“It suggests that you can use this kind of optical illusion that artists and fashion designers use all the time to tap into our basic sensory psychology.”
