Footloose. Get happy.

By Jacki-Lee Munckton

Keep the winter blues at bay and keep footloose. 

Cut some understated style with an everyday essential item, your humble sock.

Don't worry if they don't match your outfit. Some things are meant to stand out. And be footloose. Cut loose. Kick off your sunday shoes.

The basic rule of thumb is: the colour of your sock should match the colour of your trousers. But rules are meant to broken right? 

So once you have your classic look down pat, why not show your confidence with socks that say "I know how to have a good time and look good doing it." 

Here's some African style inspiration.

The ‘Sapeurs’ everyday heroes hail from the Republic of Congo whose way of life is a belief of putting more in, to get more out. Their life is not defined by occupation or wealth, but by respect, a moral code and a display of flair and creativity. Demonstrated through their love of stylish dressing:

"but it is not the fabric or cost of the suit that counts, it is the worth of the man inside it."
