Sure, you may have taken our advice and embraced the colorful sock trend, but don’t go wild. Be careful that they don’t clash with the rest of your outfit.
When in doubt, match your socks to your shirt. “I recommend pairing the dominant color of the sock with the dominant color of your shirt,” says Jeff House, co-founder of new sock retailer Cole and Parker. “Whether your socks are striped, polka-dotted, or Argyle, make sure they fit with your shirt.” (i.e., if you’re wearing a teal shirt, wear a teal-patterned sock).
