Unspoken Rules To Follow When Pairing Socks With Your Wardrobe
Here are some (unspoken) rules to follow when pairing socks with your wardrobe. I know it is super easy to think that you can wear anything with a pair of socks, and that is true, but would you do that effectively? Alright let’s get into it.
- DO NOT WEAR TOO MANY PATTERNS
- LET YOUR SOCKS STAND OUT
- MATCH YOU SOCKS WITH AN ACCESSORY
- DON'T OVERPOWER YOUR OUTFIT
- FIND THE RIGHT PAIR OF SHOES
When it comes to patterns, if you decide to go the pattern route for socks, it's important not to go overboard with the patterns or you might end up looking like you are a real-life clown. Think about it, wearing polka dots and stripes might not be the best idea.
Let your socks be the star of the show but do this in a simple subtle way. I think of socks as great conversation starters and icebreakers. With the right pair of socks, you can strike up a conversation and bond over interests. For this you can check out our “icons’ collection. What style would you connect with?
Matching socks with an accessory like a tie, or pocket square has been one of those old age style systems that people have maintained for a long time. Most people tend to stick to this when it comes to weddings, events, but we can also try this when it comes to everyday wear, especially if you wear a lot of blazers.
Don’t overpower your outfit ties in closely with letting your socks stand out. What that means is that you must strike a balance. By overpowering what we mean is “oh those socks are great” and by letting your socks stand out , we mean, “ oh, I like your outfit and those socks are pretty cool”
Finally, finding the right pair of shoes would make or break your socks outfit. This has always been a great discussion and to keep it safe but still stylish, we recommend a lot of blacks and browns. You can try out different styles like loafers, derby’s or oxfords.
These are great tips and unspoken rules that you can use when pairing socks with your wardrobe. If you have any more rules, be sure to let us know and send us some feedback.
