A few weeks ago now, I was lucky enough to be asked to work with a lovely brand known as Happy Socks...which, you guessed it, sell socks (and other underwear items as well, in case you were wondering). I had heard the odd mention of this brand beforehand, and had also spotted them on such websites as John Lewis, plus after a good look on their actual website, had seen just how cool and quirky all of their different sock varieties are - hence why I jumped at the opportunity to work with them, and simply couldn't wait to receive my socks, and also start writing and posting about them!
If you want to take a better look at the Happy Socks collection (they also sell other really cool underwear items such as pants too) feel free to have a thorough browse of their website https://www.happysocks.com/uk/, as well as a look at other sites such as John Lewis and House of Fraser, which also sell said socks.
Anyway, now onto a bit about my socks, and I was in fact lucky enough to receive three lovely pairs from Happy Socks; each of which I completely love in terms of both design and comfiness (because that of course is very important when it comes to socks). All of the socks that I received cost £9 per pair, which may seem a little pricey for a pair of socks, but let me assure you that these socks really are quite different from your usual, mundane sock varieties, with totally out-there patterns on offer, and also a level of sock-softness that is really quite difficult to find anywhere else as well.
Amongst my three pairs of socks (all of which I own in a size 36-40, which is a size 4-7 in UK terms), there is a really quite adorable floral patterned pair (https://www.happysocks.com/uk/rose-petal-sock-3.html) - these, I particularly love due to the cute little flowers and petals imprinted all over, as well as the dotting of bright blue into the pattern, to really give them a little bit of a unique edge from the usual flowery socks. There's also a cool pair covered in colourful diamonds (https://www.happysocks.com/uk/mini-diamond-sock-31.html); diamonds that I love due to the fact that they are rather colourful, without being too out there, and with the grey background, still work well when just worn with items like trainers (and don't stand out and look too crazy). Finally, there's my black, optic patterned socks (https://www.happysocks.com/uk/white-on-black-optic-sock.html) - these, again, have quickly become a firm favourite due to their simple monochrome style, as well as because they are really, really soft (even softer than the other two soft pairs), and are perfect to just wear all day long to keep my feet warm.
As well as my evident love of the designs and comfort of my socks, I also love how on the bottom of each sock there's a little print of the brands logo (sorry that it isn't very clear in my photos), which despite being quite subtle, actually looks really quite cute - and also lets everyone know where you have bought your socks from!
What's more, I must say that I would definitely go on to buy some more socks and items for myself from Happy Socks in the future, and due to them perhaps being a little more expensive than other socks on the market, would also regard them as being perfect for presents; especially for those who you know are a little more difficult to buy for when it comes to Christmas and Birthdays, socks are normally quite a safe bet, and with the incredibly large selection of socks on offer on Happy Socks, said website is definitely worth a browse of...
