Gone are the days of boring socks. No more navy or black dress socks with your favorite suit. And don’t even get me started on white tube socks, the footwear equivalent of tighty whities. Now we have options. Whether you work in a casual office environment, like me, or in a more conservative setting, your socks are a great way to show your wild side without upsetting the status quo. Here are a few of my favorite looks.
Bright colors can be paired with almost anything. Just make sure the color doesn’t clash with the rest of your outfit. Your favorite pinstriped suit would look a lot less stuffy with some bright blue socks.
Stripes and plaids
With stripes and plaids, we want to keep the rest of the outfit more low key. Business casual khakis look a little dressier with cool patterned socks. Just make sure the color of your shirt picks up one of the colors in the socks to tie the look together.
Prints go great with jeans and a tee. Here’s where you can really let loose and show the world who you are. Find a pattern that says something about you… who you are and what you like to do. Come on, get a little crazy.
This isn’t rocket science, guys. Now break out of the sock rut and go show the world the real you…one funky pair of socks at a time.
