Your everyday socks are some of the most worn and washed items in your wardrobe. As such, make sure to routinely invest in versatile, durable pairs. Explore a range of hard-wearing materials and choose colors that compliment your preexisting wardrobe. Most importantly, make it a habit to buy a new pair every-so-often so your sock drawer stays in optimal condition.
