Stupid, stupid, stupid problem

I consider myself to be a reasonably intelligent person, and am generally able to handle most things. Unfortunately, I have come upon a problem that I have been unable to solve. I generally wear slacks and a nice blouse/sweater to work. When wearing slacks, I tend to wear matching socks, and flat shoes (either black or brown). Here's the problem: my socks won't stay put! They are constantly slipping down into my shoes, and I can't find a way to stop it! I am forever reaching down into my shoes and pulling my socks up -- an activity that definitely does NOT look very professional! I would appreciate any solutions y'all could offer, because I am sick of it!

Simple solution. Buy a different brand of socks. I had the same problem when I bought all my socks at Payless. I love those socks, but they slipped. I switched to a different brand at Walmart (faded glory I think) and that problem stopped.

ROFL, cutNglue! These came from Walmart! They are the "super soft" thin socks that fold down at the ankle, and I love them except for this huge irritation!

Rubber bands! Put them around the sock and fold over. That's what I always did with my knee socks when I was growing up.

You know how most students will come up to you saying a certain kid said a bad word...then the word turns out to be 'stupid'. I should have clarified.
