A good pair of socks can make your entire outfit, but making sure they match your tie isn’t as easy as it sounds. While you might have all the knowledge in the world about business and finance, maybe you could use some help on how to take your sock game to the next level? That’s where we come in with this philosophy-backed guide on how to match your socks with your tie in four simple steps. Step one: pick out your socks, step two: choose a colour for your tie...
Solid colors and patterns
The most common way to match socks and ties is with solid colors. That said, there are many ways to get creative. You can pair stripes or patterns on the socks with either patterned or solid ties. The best part? It's easy! Just choose any color of sock you like and find an appropriate tie in the same color. For example, if you have navy blue socks, go for a solid navy blue tie or striped navy blue tie. If you have pink-and-blue polka dot socks, go for a pink-and-blue polka dot patterned tie!
Workplace, formal or casual events?
ankle socks are a more relaxed style that work well for most workplace settings and casual events. If you're wearing them to a formal event, they should be worn over the top of dress socks or suit pants. You can get them in any color, including pastel colors and bolder hues like purple and pink. Cool men's socks are usually made from cotton or wool, but some companies have started making novelty styles out of materials like nylon, bamboo and spandex. Mens ankle socks typically come in one-size fits all - there is no need for him to wear heel grips as these are non-constricting at the top.
When in doubt, go classic
The most classic way to match your socks and tie is by matching the color of the socks and the color of the stripes on the tie. However, there are many other ways you can pull off this look as well. For example, choose a colorful sock that matches one of the colors in your patterned tie or just go for some crazy socks that stand out. You can also mix up patterns for an interesting twist! The possibilities are endless so have fun experimenting!
