Socks - Make Sure They Match More Than Just Each Other

Apr 27, 2008
So you have a great pair of sandals and you also have a great pair of socks? Well, that does not mean that they should be worn together, ever! Wearing socks with sandals is a well-known fashion faux pas but yet people still commit this grievous fashion sin on a daily basis. If you are going to be wearing socks make sure that you are wearing them with closed shoes. Your socks should be an accompaniment to your outfit; they should not ever steal the show. So keep this in mind the next time to intend to wear your rainbow colored socks.

When it comes to socks, you may think they are a pretty simple fashion item that does not take much thought or effort to include into your wardrobe but a good pair - and the right pair of socks can make or break your entire outfit. For undoubted sophistication you can't go wrong by matching the color of your socks to the color of your shoes. So, that means that if you are wearing black shoes, then ideally you should also be wearing black socks, if you are wearing brown shoes brown socks, etc. It's very simple if you keep it to color matching!

Patterned and cartoon socks are fun and they are fine, but save the cartoon socks for weekends at home or for ambling around the house. Elegantly patterned socks can be a great asset, they will add a spark of personality and will add on overall texture to your outfit. When you are thinking of giving someone a pair of socks as a gift, it is important to keep in mind the recipient's personality and you can hardly go wrong with a great pair of striped or argyle patterned socks.

When travelling, socks are often the one thing to be forgotten and to be left out of the clothes bags. When you reach into your suitcase for a pair of socks and find there are not any do not be tempted to keep on going with the pair you are wearing. Remember that most hotel shops, stores and even supermarkets today stock socks, so either remember to pack them or remember to give a nearby store a visit.

Last but not at all least, and with the risk of stating the obvious, please always ensure that your socks themselves are correctly matched. There are very few things that seem sillier than somebody wearing incorrectly matched socks. A blue on the left and a black on the right just does not seem at all fitting, whether it be with a pair of jeans and trainers or with a sophisticated suit and smart pair of shoes. If you are color-blind, do yourself a favor and get somebody else to match up your socks into the right pairs for you. And remember the greatest morals when it comes to wearing socks is to keep them correctly matched up and to keep them as far away from sandals as is possible, and then keep the sandals for the beach.
