A Bold Sock


Don’t let socks become the afterthought of your ensemble.

Rocking a patterned sock is one of our favorite gambles in modern fashion. A term we like to use is ‘echoing’—where a color from the torso reappears a shade or two lighter around the ankles. If you have a pair of socks with an echoed color, plus a stripe of contrasting hue, even better.

 Sure, you have nothing to lose by playing it safe and picking socks that match your pants. But pulling on a brightly patterned pair can bring your look to a whole different level. The key is balance. —
