  • Best Socks For Restaurant Workers

     

    Sockwell Compression SocksIf you work in a restaurant, you are constantly on your feet. When I was a waitress, I remember coming home at the end of the day with tired legs and super sore feet. I tried different shoes (that were acceptable with the dress code) and propped my feet up when I got home, but shift after shift, my legs would still ache. As it turns out, prevention is key.

    Whether you are a waiter, waitress, bartender or chef, you can prevent fatigue at the end of your shift by wearing compression socks. Here are a few options that are perfect for people who spend a lot of time on their feet.

    More often than not, when you work in a restaurant, you have to wear a uniform or have guidelines to follow. If you're in need of a solid black sock, the VIM & VIGR Nylon Knee High is a great choice. It is made with moisture-wicking fabric to help keep your skin dry and cool, which is great if you get sweaty feet running from table to table! This sock provides 15-20mmHg compression to keep your legs energized, prevent swelling and relieve tired, achy legs. Another option is the Allegro Italian Cotton Knee High. This durable sock also provides 15-20mmHg compression and is designed with a super soft ribbed pattern and a reinforced heel and toe to prevent holes from your shoes rubbing. The Allegro Italian Cotton Sock is available in Grey, Black, Beige, Brown and Navy and is made for men and women.

    If you wear long pants (and your socks don't matter), or if you work in a place with a more relaxed dress code, try Sockwell compression socks. They come in tons of great patterns and colors. These socks are really soft and comfortable and make a big difference at the end of the day. Sockwell compression socks provide arch support and are designed with a seamless toe closure to prevent irritation. If you need a sock with more padding, try the Meta Cushion Sock, designed with Metatarsal Relief Technology to ease discomfort under the ball of the foot.

    I recently tried out a pair of the MARVY heart socks. They are black with fuchsia hearts on them. I love how soft and comfortable they are. These socks have a 1.5” wide top band that keeps them from falling down. MARVYs are extremely comfortable, with a cushioned toe and heel to keep you feeling great during those long days on your feet.

    As soon as you put them on, your legs instantly feel energized and refreshed. MARVYs provide 15-20mmHg of graduated compression, meaning that the pressure is felt most at the ankle, and decreases gradually going up your leg. The socks are made out of a lightweight, breathable fabric that moves with you, creating a gentle massage that feels amazing. MARVYS are also super stretchy and easy to get on.

    MARVY compression socks are great for anyone who sits or stands all day, and for athletes, doctors, nurses, flight attendants, teachers, restaurant workers and more. Wear these after going to the gym to increase circulation, which helps to prevent lactic acid from building up and reduces the time it takes to recover. They are made from a moisture-wicking fabric, making them perfect to work out in as well. MARVY compression socks fight off leg cramps and promote healthy, happy legs. If you are looking for something that’s fashionable and feels great, these are the socks for you.

    Choose from hearts, stripes or a fun leopard pattern in a couple of different colors to find your perfect look. MARVY is dedicated to helping you achieve healthy, gorgeous legs. To learn more about MARVY, click here.

  • Stylebook: Girl on the Go - Look 6

    Looking and feeling your best when you travel is essential. During the cold months, if your destination isn't all that warm and sunny, then throw on your favorite boots and leather jacket. Going on vacation or taking a trip for work is fun and exciting, so make sure to dress the part. After all, you never know who you might run into!

    The first and most important travel tip to follow is to plan ahead! Make sure you check the weather ahead of time to bring the right clothes and shoes. Always pack extras of your essential items, like socks! Just remember not to go overboard or you might find yourself paying extra to get your overly-packed suitcase on the plane. Do some research about where you are going to plan out where you want to go, places to eat and so on. Take out some extra money just in case something goes missing or you see something that you just can't live without. Remember to be friendly and don't shy away from asking questions. If you take a cab, ask the driver what their favorite hangouts are or what restaurant they would suggest for dinner. Try to be open to new experiences because you may never get the opportunity again. Last but not least, don't forget a camera!! Even if you're not super thrilled about your destination, you never know when you'll catch a breathtaking sunset.
