Weirdly enough, there is a lot of debate out there regarding wether your socks should match you shoes, or wether they should in fact match your pants. It would appear though that the general consensus is “your socks should match your pants” like in the example below.
You see, all that you’re really trying to do is create a seamless transition from your the hem of your pants to your shoe so as you walk and your pants sway, there isn’t an unsightly break in the color. So the thought of matching your socks to your shoes is generally the same, though it can start getting tricky when wearing grey pants and brown shoes, either way I believe this rule should only be followed on the most formal of formal occasions, like meeting the queen. Otherwise your outfit is as bland as this grey blur above.
Then there’s this guy, the “european sock” and for those of you who follow our Instagram feed will already know, I’m not shy to show a little skin around the ankles. I wish I had a better explanation as to why, but I don’t. It’s a european thing I guess, something I picked up somewhere ages ago and just loved, I believe it requires a good comfy hidden sock to work, but the fashionistas say go the whole hog. Meh, I’ll take the comfort route on this one.
Okay. Stay fancy.
