Sock love :)

Moving house made me realise that I should probably sort out my sock collection and update it as well. I have an entire drawer dedicated to knee high socks, one for over the knee socks, one for thick socks and one for standard socks... I know... I am crazy... I promise to downsize to 2 drawers really soon :)

My favourite place for sock shopping is Primark, because they offer the best prices. Unfortunately the quality isn't great, so I end up going back for more, two weeks later.

The best option is to invest in socks made by companies who specialise in sock making, like H J Sock Group LTD.
The brand was established in 1882 and their products are known for durability and comfort.

My main problem with socks is the horrible feeling of tight elastics. HJ Socks offer a range of Softop Socks, designed to stay up all day without leaving marks on the legs or restricting circulation.
They also come with an unconditional 6 month guarantee.  Perfect!

Softop Mini Floral Cotton Rich Socks £5.50 

If you like stripes, you will probably like the chunky rib socks pictured below. 
I love the pink and turquoise combo.

£5.99 Chunky Rib Cotton Rich Socks £5.99

The range of colourful socks would be perfect for those who love neons and brights.
Colours Fashion Sock £3.99

If you are looking for good quality socks for ladies and gents, I would recommend checking out HJ Socks website. They offer a wide selection of products at affordable prices.

  1. I love socks! haha they look so cute :)

  2. haha your sock drawer sounds like mine, I need to get rid of some too, for some weird reason I get nostalgic about socks and can't throw them out.
    I have a pair of socks from when I was probably 15ish that have donuts on them (and once were donut scented) I thought these were mega cool at the time and can't bring myself to chuck them now haha x

  3. All my socks have holes in, this has reminded me to get some new ones, perfect timing!

  5. gotta love cute socks, my favourite pair in my drawer are some grey ones with sheep on :-D

    However, my biggest bug-bear is having to pair all the socks up after washing them, my husband has soo many variations of black socks its unreal!
