A great pair of socks can make an outfit, especially now that socks with sandals is a look no longer reserved for your 80-year-old grandfather. High Museum of Art Atlanta is selling a bunch of socks inspired by famous works of art that I need ASAP because I've always longed to wear The Scream on my ankles.
Life-long sartorial dreams aside, these socks are amazing and actually super cheap ($8-$12.50 on the High Museum website). I know I'm always saying that certain items of clothing will change my life but guys — it's FOR REAL this time. With these socks, I will now be The Coolest Ever and start hanging out with Chloe Sevigny and Miranda July and making high-concept performance art that will win me tons of awards (another life-long dream).
I will be wearing the Mona Lisa socks with multi-colored low-heeled sandals as styled by Kate Brian for this Vogue slideshow as I am performing my yet-to-be-developed art piece where I record animal noises with cassettes and play them back while sitting silently in a giant room, But seriously, these socks are really cute and I want them even if they don't transform me into a brilliant artist. Check out some of the best arty socks below, and head over the High Museum's website to snag some of your own!
