Patterned / Coloured Socks
Look on any respected menswear style blog at the moment – from streetfsn, jakandjil or the sartorialist – and you will see all manner of men wandering the streets of the world with patterned socks glowing from their ankles like stars in the night sky. Polka dots, stripes, zig-zags and swirls plus more colours than adorn the rainbow, the patterned/coloured sock is most certainly the sock of the moment. If you are going to wear a brightly coloured patterned sock make sure the rest of your outfit is suitably toned down with block colours and/or navy or black jeans. Patterned socks with a patterned trouser – think herringbone check or pinstripes – is a strict no no.
