Matching Skills of Customized Dress Socks

If you're wearing dress socks right now, look down and see if the color matches your outfit? Don't you have any ideas? Let check it together! Today, we will share some tips for matching custom dress socks. Below are some rules want to let know. Study these closely, incorporate them into your business and dress regimen, and you will never go wrong.

Dress shoes always match dress socks

If you wear dress shoes, you absolutely cannot wear athletic socks, no matter what their color; it’s simply not enough that your socks be black. What reason for this rule? Custom athletic socks are often bulkier than custom dress socks because they are usually made of heavier cotton or other materials geared for intense movement and sweat absorption. Athletic socks usually have a rib on the legs and the style tends to be the sport and will add terry on the sole for more hard-wearing. Due to their thickness, they tend to bunch over the top of narrow dress shoes, making them look strange and uncoordinated. Instead, wear dress socks with dress shoes. They are easier to slip into your shoes, and the fine, thin material of dress socks will result in your shoes being the statement piece, not your socks.

Match the color of your socks with your pants, not your shoes

When wearing dress pants or casual pants, apart from jeans, the color of your custom dress socks should be closed to the color of your pants, not by the shade of your shoes. Black pants should obviously go with black socks, and brown pants with brown socks—the same goes for blue and gray pants. Ultimately, your custom dress socks should be an extension of your trousers through their color tone. Choose your dress socks carefully for pants of different hues: if you are wearing a pair of dark green pants, or a unique shade of brown, try a few pairs of socks to determine which socks match your pants best. If you are in doubt, darker colors usually work better, or choose a patterned pair that features the unique color within it. The reason for this is simple: when you have to take your shoes off or sit down, your socks will be exposed. Socks that coordinate with pants create a fluid appearance for your outfit, and socks that don’t match your pants will break up an otherwise perfect ensemble.

White socks are only for sports

The most well-known, yet still the broken-too-often rule of socks is to never wear white socks with dress pants and shoes. If you're not Michael Jackson, you’d better not wear a pair of plain white socks in a suit and an Oxford. When going to the gym, white athletic socks are fine; however, apart from activities that generate sweat, white athletic socks are a big “no-no.” Paired with a suit, white athletic socks can look unprofessional, and most people will associate them with bad taste. The only time to wear white dress socks?  When you’re wearing a white tuxedo.
