The Return of the 80s Slouchy Socks

Have you ever seen 80s movies and marvelled at the extreme fashion choices that extend down to the socks? Some of the most popular socks back in the day were slouch socks, which featured a thin lower section and chunky, ribbed upper with no elastic. This allowed the socks to be scrunched down, and it was highly trendy in the 80s. Well, the good news is that they’re back with a bang. 

Funky 80s Style 

Retro fashion has been popular for a long time now. However, a lot of 80s styles are restricted to costume nights and parties. Slouch socks are a bit different because the modern versions capture the funky fashion of decades past while still aligning with current fashion trends. As a result, they’re now worn by people from all walks of life than by cheerleaders in 80s movies. 

Embracing Comfort and Warmth 

Slouch socks aren’t all about showing off your 80s style. They’re also very comfortable, so they can be part of your wardrobe even if you don’t particularly like 80s fashion. Modern slouch socks also come in colour schemes that are a bit more sedate than the bright colours of the 80s so that you can pair them with boots and casual outfits for a supremely comfortable and warm feel all year round. 

Mix Up Your Style 

Slouch socks have spent a bit of time in the wilderness, often seen as a very 80s-centric fashion choice. The good thing about that is, many people today weren’t even around to enjoy them in the 80s, making it a completely new look for many people. 

So, even if you’ve never worn slouch socks before, you can reinvent yourself with a new style. Fashion is all about being yourself and being comfortable while looking and feeling your best. So, perhaps now is the time to mix up your unique style! 

Wear Them Long 

Of course, while slouch socks are designed to be bunched up, that doesn’t mean you need to stick with tradition. The ribbed upper part of the sock makes it quite warm and comfortable, so if you’re struggling for a bit of warmth in the colder months, just pull those socks up and enjoy the comfort! 

Double Up Your Socks 

One of the great things about slouch socks is the ability to wear multiple pairs at once to give your look some serious flair. Slouch socks usually have very thin material around the foot, and thicker, ribbed material in the upper section.

This means you can wear 2 or 3 pairs and still fit comfortably in your shoes, but roll the tops down accordingly for a multi-coloured look. There’s not much more retro than mixing colours at your whim!
