1980s “Slouch Socks” Are Bringing Cozy

Slouch Socks

You’ve probably seen Sixteen Candles, Pretty In Pink or The Breakfast Club. If so, you’ll know that the best scene in every 1980s Slouch Socks movie was the montage that shows all the crazy fashion happening in high school halls. The 80s teen fashion was all about slicked-back hair, neon unitards, and shoulder pads. Who wouldn’t want to be Molly Ringwald?

Many 1980s fashion trends should be avoided, but there’s one we love to see reappear online and in stores. Slouch socks are back, and they will bring cozy vibes to 2022.

Slouch socks were the accessory of choice in the 1980s, and not because they had to fit into any particular group. Prepsters wore crisp-white slouchsocks with Keds or cheerleader uniforms. New Wavers could get two pairs of ripped tights with burnt red lipstick. This trend continued into the 1990s when Princess Diana wore slouched tube bombas socks to public events.

Slouchy socks can be worn with any style, so they are easy to adapt to modern-day fashions. Retro style, such as Rachel Green-inspired mini skirts or oversized blazers by Andie Walsh, is already making its way into our wardrobes. Pair slouch socks with leggings, a vintage sweatshirt, and sneakers for major athleisure attitude, or layer over a pair of sheer tights with boots and a long cable-knit sweater for a preppy-meets-fashionista look.
