Matching Men’s Shoes and Socks
As petty as it might seem, matching men’s shoes and socks is often a significant fashion concern for men. This is especially the case for men who are not familiar with fashion or who could care less about it, but know they still need to look presentable. Wherever you fall on the sock and shoe fashion scale, you’ll need to know the dos and don’ts of and shoe pairing.
Without a doubt, matching the right socks and shoe is most critical when it comes to wearing men’s dress shoes in the workplace. Your appearance and reputation are on the line at work, and many men would be surprised to know how something as simple as a mismatched ensemble can make such a difference in the impression you make.
Two Basic Tips
Regardless of the kinds of shoes you wear for work or for play, there are two basic tips to keep in mind if you want to make sure your socks complement your footwear. First, the best rule of thumb is to always wear a sock that matches your pants. There is very rarely an exception to this rule, so take note! Next, if you can’t or don’t want to wear the same exact sock colour as your pant colour, then at least choose a sock colour to match your pants based on the shade of the pant.
For example, if you are wearing a dark brown pant, try to wear a semi-dark brown sock. Not light cream or beige, but a complementary shade of darker brown. By wearing a shade that is very similar to your pant, you create a pleasant colour transition from the shoe up to the bottom of the pant. Follow these two general guidelines every time you pick out a sock to match to your pants, and you’ll be matching men’s shoes and socks properly in no time!
