Here’s How to Wear Your Patterned Socks! 

Remember when patterned socks were considered a novelty? Almost like a fun birthday or Secret Santa gift you’d give someone you don’t know very well. 

And something the gift recipient would probably never legitimately wear. But, well, times have changed! 

Patterned socks are back in a big way and have gained enough fashion credibility to suit your work outfit. 

So, if you’re keen on putting colour back into your look, here’s how to wear patterned socks for the best effect. 

Don’t overdo the colour. 

The biggest mistake you can make when wearing patterned socks is to pair them with too much colour. 

For example, let’s say you’ve picked up some cool checked socks from ORTC and are looking for a pair of shorts that match. 

Now, if you wore checked shorts, it would be too much. But, on the other hand, wearing striped shorts may also be too much and look out of place. 

If your socks are patterned, your shorts or trousers should be a mostly solid colour. 

The same goes for your shoes because colourful shoes can take away from the socks. Give your socks some space to shine, and keep surrounding colours simple. 

Should you pull socks up or leave them down? 

The endless argument to which there may never be a definitive answer! The reality is that socks can be worn up or down, depending on your preference. 

Trends change so often that it’s hard to keep up with them. But, one thing’s for sure – people can’t see your socks if you keep them rolled down all the time. 

When pairing patterned socks with shorts, you can pull them up for an edgy, streetwear vibe. It’s also quite a fashionable choice. But wearing them down is fine too if that’s what you prefer.

How about patterned socks for work? 

It’s always difficult to know how much you can get away with at work. If you’re in a profession requiring you to wear trousers, a shirt and a tie, you need to be a little careful. 

But you should be pretty safe by choosing socks that are predominantly black with a few images on them. 

Of course, they’ll only be visible when you sit down, but it should be fine as long as they’re not too overpowering. 

Patterned socks for all casual occasions 

There are no rules if you want to wear patterned socks in a casual setting. Pull them up, push them down, wear them with shorts, wear them with jeans. 

The possibilities are endless. As long as your socks don’t clash with other clothing items, the world is your oyster!
