Your Grandma's Compression Socks Are Now Considered 'Cool'

Last week the New York Times declared “compression socks and hoes are no longer for grandmas.” This was my introduction to compressions socks since I’m a dumb millennial who only cares about what’s for dinner (cereal) and when I will start my Fortune 500 company on Kickstarter (never). So in case you don’t know, compression socks and tights are super snug hosiery that help increase leg circulation and minimize swelling from sitting for a long a$$ time.

Apparently, important ladies who are–gasp!–under 60 years old are wearing them, like the the head of U.S. sales for Isbabel Marant. Why? Because business women who travel for work get puffy legs and cankles too, OK?? That’s why brands like Item M6Vim & Vigr and RejuvaHealth have created compression socks that don’t look like anything you’d find in your grandma’s dresser. They come in colors like black shimmer and coral, and patterns like polka dot, floral and zigzag. Even designers like Prada and Dolce & Gabbana showed compression-like socks for Spring 2015. Maybe we need to take some more fashion advice from our grandmas…
