Colored Dress Socks: The perfect way to add some fashionable spice to your business attire
One of my favorite ways to add a little spice to your business suit is via a pair of colored dress socks. This is a way to add a little modern flair, and accentuate with a pop of color just as you would via a tie or pocket square. Most mens designers now offer a line of fashionable dress socks in a wide array of colors. Some of my favorite “go-to” companies for fashionable socks are Ted Baker, Paul Smith, Bugatchi, Thomas Pink, and Robert Graham. Not only do they offer a wide selection, but they also tend to pair bright colors with more subdued hues to create contrast and depth without being too loud and obnoxious. Of all of the patterns on the market, my favorites are the tried and true stripes. With these you can be as bold or as subtle as you want. If you are new to this concept (meaning you feel like you are “breaking the rules” by not wearing plain black or brown dress socks), perhaps you should ease into the idea by trying a subdued or monochromatic stripe. As your confidence grows (and it will by the compliments you receive), you can venture into bolder territory. Below I have included some images of socks that would go beautifully with navy, grey, or tan suits (your office standards).
