The Curvy Fashionista Loves Our Wide Calf Socks

The Curvy Fashionista is your plus size fashion resource and destination & Marie, Editor in Chic, loves a good pair of socks!!

In this video: Accessorize to Maximize: Summer Beauty and Style Finds That You’ll Love, she calls our socks “hella stretchy”—

“Get this girl, up to a 21″ calf! Do you hear me? A 21″ calf circumference. So here you have form, fit, fashion, and function… Girl, get into it!”

Knee high wide calf socks might seem a strange fit for summer, but she makes a really good point: “They’re the perfect socks to wear around the house when you wanna wear knee highs and your little booty shorts because it’s 5000º outside but your AC is still going strong inside.”

Watch her whole video because it’s fun, informative, and there are some other good products in there too!

“Perfect Summer Socks” -Hello Glow

“…I have a huge repertoire of flats that I wear daily. Buuuuut…” writes Hello Glow in their article The Perfect Socks for Summer Flats, “some flats can get a little manky if you’re not wearing socks. YEAH I SAID IT!”

We’re glad somebody said it! It’s an issue, along with strange tan lines and socks always slipping (something we fixed with our silicone grip and contour knit).

“Enter: no-show socks,” they continue, “…Sock It to Me have you covered with their super fun no-show socks–the rainbow and gato libre ones are my personal faves.”

Walking on Sunshine

Something New Under the Sun

Summer’s here. Our shoulders relax, our eyes focus on the horizon, and we let out a collective sigh, “Ahhhhhhh….” It’s time to shift perspective from inward out onto the bright and beautiful world around us!

Sunlight brings new things to light: friendship, color, & humor. We captured all of that in our new new sock collection. Let’s take a look.

Step Into the Light

During the winter months, we can get a little too introverted. Sure, our cats and indoor plants enjoy the extra attention, but once the sun breaks through, our eyes begin to wander outside the confines of our homes.

Cat-ercise Crew Socks for Women, Retro Rainbow Crew Socks for WomenMake the most of these longer days while they’re here! What better way to celebrate the sunshine than with friends? Women’s crew socks like Cat-ercise and Retro Rainbow remind us of our chilhoods—playing with Lite-Brite & making up silly dances in our living rooms (or was that last Saturday?). If you can’t get a little giggly in the sun with your friends, when can you?

Our connections make us stronger and happier, so find that silly self and do something absolutely childish! Pick up your phone, pick up some chalk, and have some frivolous fun.

Bright This Way

STRETCH-IT Land of the Dino Knee High Socks for Women and Men, Stretch-It Reigning Confetti Knee High Socks for Women and MenIn the Northwest, the winter can get so dark we barely notice the colors around us. It’s not just that a tree will lose its leaves, we also just don’t see the green that’s there as vividly. Once the summer sun shows its face, BAM, green everywhere. Suddenly, we ask ourselves, “Was that building always purple?”

Colors just show more brightly in the summer and we wanted our new sock collection to POP in the sun. For example, STRETCH-IT Land of the Dino has dinosaurs and Paleo plants that are nearly neon & STRETCH-IT Reigning Confetti has a rainbow nearly bursting off it with confetti fit for any spontaneous dance party.

The indoors can be bright too, with kids socks Paws-itively Adorable & Keep Dreamin’ lighting up this room.

We picked the brightest crayons in the box—or chalk in the bin—to illuminate the fact that the most radiant season of the year is finally here.

It’s a Knee High…It’s a Crew…It’s a Pun!

Hang in There Knee High Socks for Women, Chew on This Crew Socks for Men, Something to Tweet About Knee High Socks for WomenThings aren’t always what they seem. On the surface, these colorful socks are just bright and have fun themes. This pink knee high sock is merely celebrating the aerial adventures of sloths—or so it would seem! Take a look at the sock to its right, just a nice crew sock passionate about pups. OR IS IT? Then there’s a knee high covered in birds carrying banners. Pretty straightforward. Think again!

Look closer at these socks and you’ll see there’s more than first meets the eye. Names might help: Hang in There, Chew on This, & Something to Tweet About.

Man Cave Crew Socks for Men, Mana-Tea Knee High Socks for Women

We LOVE puns. It puts two of our favorite things together: words & play. With Man Cave and Mana-Tea, your friends might approach to say, “Neat outdoor scene on your crew socks” or “Cute tea cup knee highs”. But, as they approach, they’ll see the true genius of your wardrobe choice. And like that, another layer is brought to light.

Ready to live your brightest life? Our new socks are ready to light the way!
