While some people have been dressing up while working from home at this time, I've found myself reaching for the same cozy sweatpants instead. I don't really feel like I've been in the right mindset to put on a flowy dress or wear a cute top with jeans for a put-together look. (Luckily, I don't have to dress up for work meetings since they are super casual.) Lately, it's the little things that have been bringing me joy. Case in point? I've been wearing my tie-dye socks when I need a little pick-me-up during the workweek.

I have a pair of colorful tie-dye socks from Mother that has "Don't" written on one sock and "Trip" written on the other. Just like my favorite hoodie, slipping into these retro socks brings a smile to my face. Perhaps it's the nostalgic tie-dye print that has a calming effect over me, but as soon as I put them on I feel a little bit better. It might also be the fact that I'm no longer styling my outfit with different shoes right now, so these colorful socks feel like a fun way to complete an outfit rather than plain white ones. I've actually noticed others like Leandra Medine and celebrity stylist Erin Walsh styling their loungewear at home with these colorful '90s-inspired socks, too. Keep reading to see how to wear tie-dye socks and shop a couple of pieces if you're feeling inspired ahead.
