How to Style Patterned Socks Without Being a Fashion Victim

It seems that people are well and truly tired of plain old boring socks. Patterns are becoming much more accepted as a fashion accessory, including what we wear on our feet. Of course, you need to know how to wear patterned socks without looking like a fashion victim!

While trends are becoming much more liberal, there are still a few certain dos and don’ts when wearing patterned socks. This guide will help you choose and style your outfit to include patterned socks the right way. 

Show Them Off With Shorts 

The great thing about wearing patterned socks with shorts is that you’ve got the choice of wearing them up or down. There’s no proper or wrong way to do this, and it comes down to personal preference. However, we would offer one piece of advice — stay away from any outfit that’s too loud. A bit of colour is fine, but don’t go over the top. 

If you’ve got some patterned or bright-coloured socks you want to show off, they will have more impact if you have some solid-coloured shorts or another understated design that doesn’t take away from the socks. 

Try Them With Some Cropped Pants 

Whether you call them cropped pants, ankle pants or something else, they’ve soared back into fashion in recent times. Even some of the summer bohemian pants getting around these days show a bit of the ankle. So, these are perfect for showing off some brightly coloured or patterned socks. 

You can pull the socks right up to have them on full display in this scenario, and people will only see as much as your ankle pants show them. Perfect! 

Avoid Too Much Colour 

As we mentioned when discussing shorts, it’s always best to avoid too much colour. Unless, of course, you’ve seen guys in the street wearing bright socks, Hawaiian shorts and a loud Hawaiian shirt and thought they look great. However, most people find that sort of style only appropriate for a novelty event. 

When choosing patterned socks, try to keep the rest of your outfit understated. Or, if you’re a bit of a sucker for bright fashion, try to create a barrier at least. For example, you can wear patterned socks with a bright, patterned shirt, but try to use your shorts or pants as a solid colour barrier.
