Men urged to put a stylish sock in it
As men pack away their winter boots and don slightly lower loafers, they should pay careful consideration to their socks, a stylist has asserted.

Some people may believe that fashionable legwear is something of greater concern to women than men as their shoes and skirts often display their hosiery or socks.

However, June Wulff, writing for the Boston Globe, has urged men to look beyond everyday black socks and consider wrapping their feet in some designer trimmings.

"Gentlemen, we recommend shining your loafers and slipping on a pair of colourful cotton socks ... Socks don't have to be boring, you know," she added.

Online style resource Men's Flair suggests that although socks rarely make a look, the wrong choice can all too often ruin one.

An outfit is "only as its weakest accessory" and socks can add a touch of quiet style, it commented, adding that socks are a vital detail in a gentleman's wardrobe.
