Dress socks are having what we call in fashion “a moment”.
What used to be a really boring, traditional category is now
totally lit. Men no longer have to choose between goofy
novelty patterns and old-man motifs when picking out a
pair. You might not be ready for Dress Socks just yet, but
they’re ready for you.
However since the trend hit I’ve seen quite a Guy’s few
unable to strike a balance. The wrong bold sock can totally
mess up a good outfit. However totally from a woman’s point
of view a bold dress sock really ups a guy’s style game and draws attention to his personality but
you can only push it that far. Crazy experimenting can easily have you labeled as tawdry, so best
Let’s talk about suiting up and choosing a bold dress sock to make a statement. We’ve chalked out
our dos and don’ts and it is best to at least heed what the fairer sex has to say about this in trend
If you are dressed for a serious or high stakes business
meeting its best to match your socks to your pant.
However for the bolder maybe a small paisley print or
polkas can work too. And if you are a confident player
totally owning your territory then a bold tie or a
pocket square with matching solid bold color socks is
the end game!
Again your personality defines your choice here.
We suggest you go with a traditional pattern but up
your game by choosing it in bold colors that
compliment your suit. Only make sure the colors all
blend and do not contrast. That way the bold will look
chic and not dowdy.
Personally my fav category. Push up your style
game with ditching the tie and opting for a
pocket square instead. This is the time to pull
out the really bold ones and have fun
expressing your choice.
Need we even say this
- Please no white sports socks.
- You must never show skin when you sit so socks should be midcalf length.
- Please don’t wear socks with Pizza, Dolphins and the Mona Lisa on them.
