Bright socks? Yes, you read that right, and yes, you can wear them without looking like you stepped off the runway. You can incorporate brightly colored socks into your regular wardrobe. The key is to keep the rest of your outfit simple so as to make your socks stand out. Here’s how to get the look of bright socks:
1. Start with your foundation: a plain white button down shirt and a pair of jeans. As usual, fit is key here so that the look is sophisticated, not sloppy. (Alternatively, sub in grey trousers for the dark straight leg jeans, if you’re going for a dressier look.)
2. Add the key element: a pair of bright orange socks. We chose orange to complement the dark blue jeans.
3. Finish off the look with a brown belt and wing tip shoes, for a dressier touch.
