Not just a convenient way to stave off the ever-present man-flu this winter, socks can also be an excellent way to add a splash of colour to your wedding day or corporate attire.
Men are traditionally confined to a fairly limited colour pallet when it comes to a tailored dress code. Greys and blacks dominate the wardrobe with a smattering of blue or perhaps a pale pink if you are particularly adventurous.
Socks can be a great way of adding colour that is only present when you are seated. The man just looking to add a flash of colour to his look might consider adjusting the block colour of his sock. Pink socks can be paired with a grey suit to great effect.
You can also directly contrast colours for a more splendid ‘pop’. We love how these yellow socks really stand out against this black suit.
If you have a hobby or passion, graphics on your socks can be a great way to express that without being overly ‘in your face’. For example perhaps you are an avid cyclist or sport a particularly glorious moustache.
