“I admit that I love starting trends, but I never thought wearing white socks was going to catch on. Not too long ago it was considered extremely square to wear white socks. It was cool in the 1950’s, but in the ‘60’s and ‘70’s you wouldn’t be caught dead in white socks. It was too square to even consider - for most people. But I never stopped wearing them. Ever. My brothers would call me a dip, but I didn’t care. […]

"They’d all tell me I was a goofball. But I still wore my white socks, and now it’s cool again. […] After Thriller came out, it even became okay to wear your pants high around your ankles again.

My attitude is if fashion says it’s forbidden, I’m going to do it.

— Michael Jackson (Moonwalk, 1988)
