Socks...
I was curious what do you all think about socks. What colour socks should you wear? Should you matc them with your pants(YUCK)? Should you match them with your shoes? Or can you always wear black "dress" socks with anything (except for gym shoes when you are going to the gym)? (I mostly mean mens sock but women can answer to)

I only have black "dress" socks those are the only ones that I wear. It is easy and for me it allways goes with anything and they are sutle and nobody notices them. Some people try to match them with their pants but it is never the right colour and it gets my distracted... I'm just curious of everybodys likes and disslikes.

i don't tend to wear socks at all, unless i'm wearing boots, work out shoes (i.e. sneakers), or uggs (because i think wearing them without socks is ). and the only socks i wear are the short little white peds, because they're the closest i can get to not wearing socks in situations where i have to, if that makes any sense.

I wear socks when I'm wearing my exercise shoes or boots.
I buy my socks based on how cute their design is and trust me, most of the time they do no match my outfit at all.
But my shoes cover everything so that's not a problem at all

the "rule" is to match socks to your pants...

i love wearing funky socks, even if no one sees them, it feels good.

To me matching the socks to your pants is so ridiclous because it never really matches and it almost always looks kind of mitch matched.... Well rules are made to be broken..

I only wear socks when I'm wearing boots (and sneakers but I hardly ever wear those) so I don't really care what they look like. But sometimes I still buy socks with cute prints just because I like them.

I do the same exact thing. I rarley wear socks, only when I wear gym shoes (which is basically never) and with boots (but not uggs). I have bunny and frog socks and basically anything cute , no one sees them

This reminds me of my high school teacher of french that allways matched his socks with the t-shirt or pullover he was wearing! ...green t-shirt meant green socks, etc

...and also a music teacher that wore pink fluffy socks with classic menīs shoes! hehehehhe


I like fun socks! Even if they are not seen, like someone mentioned
...itīs a bit like wearing nice knickers

To Sock Or Not To Sock
QUOTE SENNA: I only wear socks when I'm wearing boots (and sneakers but I hardly ever wear those) so I don't really care what they look like. But sometimes I still buy socks with cute prints just because I like them.

Reply from John Balone: Men and Women attack scoks differently. Men should wear black socks with blue or black trousers. Men should wear brown socks and shoes with brown trousers. White socks are for athletic wear...or if you are trying to make some sort of strange statement. (Even in my cowboy boots I wear black socks.)
Ladies...you have the field. I have seen knee socks worn with dresses. I'm not sure what the new fashion etiquette dictates. Colours are in great vogue but pleeze try to coordinate your socks with the rest of your ensamble. I hate it when the socks vary so much from the rest of the ensamble. (It looks like your socks were found on the floor of your closet!)
Dress up is exactly that...DRESS UP. Bare legs can be beautiful when worn with Sigerson-Morrison but pantyhose and stockings do exist. If your dress is longer wear real stockings...it drives real men nuts. If your dress is above the knee then pantyhose is in order. Ahhh but who am I.

I only wear thin socks, preferably knee-high. I hate anything really thick or padded. My toes get claustrophobic. :|
Usually in black....although with tennis shoes I wear white ankle socks.
