The Find: socks (even Justin Bieber is wearing them!)
It’s a morning ritual: two socks on, then shoes. Ladies know it, men know it and Justin Bieber knows it. Over the past couple of years, there’s been a big boom in loud socks offsetting a solid shoe, and there doesn’t appear to be an end in sight. Spring and summer are always opportune seasons to throw on a bright pair—like these Paul Smiths we found at Holt Renfrew—and call it a day, but judging by the fall/winter 2012-13 shows from Dolce and Gabbana, Missoni, Dries Van Noten and Kenzo, there’s really no reason to tuck them away, um, ever. They’d go perfectly with the laces we talked about last week, and for those people who don’t feel this look is dramatic enough, we suggest pairing it with a colourful suit. $35 to $40.
