Gotta-have guys' sock styles

Posted by Danielle

Some socks are an absolute must for both the practical and the style-conscious gent. Find out which styles you should really have stock piled in your sock drawer.

Out there in the outdoors

Chunky warm styles and boot socks are essential, especially as the cold creeps up on us. Whether you’re off on a brisk country walk or cheering on your favourite team from the terraces, the thicker socks are perfect for protecting feet when the clunky boots come out to play. To lock in the warm, heavier socks are ideal for pulling over jeans and trousers; there’s no shame in showing off your socks when there are super stylish colours and patterns to be had.

Suited and booted (and socked up too!)

A slick suit is always complete with a complimentary colourful and brightly patterned suit sock. The cardinal rules of men’s fashion state that dress shoes always require dress socks, but that doesn’t mean they need to be too basic. Plain blacks, browns and greys do come in handy but don’t be afraid of a sharp stripe, a whacky pattern or a flash of colour.

It’s an everyday thing

The casual or “leisure” sock is like the sock world equivalent of a t-shirt or a pair of jeans. On a trip out to the shops or just lounging around the house, leisure and midweight socks are great for a relaxed look and every day comfort. Like you might customise your favourite pair of jeans, you can insert plenty of personality into your style with stripes or bright patterns, or even just go ‘plain white tee’ with subtle, basic styles.

If you want to be in the style stakes with the likes of Tinie Tempah and others who favour the no-sock look, you definitely need to stock up on some shoe liners. Shoe liners keep your feet comfortable and dry, but hide neatly away under your shoe… Simple!
