I don’t just buy any socks, I buy gray ankle socks from the Gap. I admit they’re not as much fun as stripes or fox on socks, but gray also goes with everything. The other great thing about gray is that it hides dirty much better than white and isn’t as grim as black. And when all of your socks are the same, it’s very easy to pair them up. Even if they leave the dryer in an odd number, they’ll even out soon enough.
But don’t think your sock collection has to be all gray and boring, your tall socks can keep the creativity alive! Happy Socks are my favorite.
