The Do's and Don'ts of Silly Socks!

You've probably spotted some funky socks around town lately and wondered what's going on. Well, silly socks are coming back in a big way. 

However, silly socks these days don't have to be bright or loud. You can now get some silly socks that are more understated and suitable for any type of fashion. 

If you're considering adding some sock flair to your outfit, we've got plenty for you to choose from at ORTC. However, there are a few rules you should follow if you don't want to become a fashion victim. Here are the dos and don'ts of silly socks! 

Subtle silly socks are best

The key to pulling off a pair of silly socks is to not go overboard. For example, if you're wearing a suit or even just a standard shirt and trousers for work, you don't want ridiculously bright neon socks. 

You can enjoy a pair of patterned socks that don't look ridiculous. For example, in a work outfit, try to find socks that are predominantly black but with some coloured images. 

This keeps you looking appropriate for work while still adding some personality to your look. 

Don't overdo the colour

When you choose to wear silly socks, you need to consider the rest of your outfit. If your socks are quite colourful or bound to stand out, you don't want to wear them with heavily patterned shorts. 

 Even a loud shirt is probably going to distract from the socks, despite being on the other end of your body. 

Patterned socks work best when they're not overwhelmed with colour from the rest of your outfit. 

Wear silly socks up with shorts

It's perfectly fine to rock some silly socks with your shorts, but if you're going to do that, consider pulling them up. For quite a while, it was considered a bit uncool to pull your socks up, but that's changing. 

Now that patterned socks are back in vogue, it makes sense to show them off. So, a nice pair of casual shoes, some simple shorts, and you can pull those socks up to let your personality shine. 

Break up the colours

If you are a naturally colourful person, the previous recommendation of toning down your outfit may not be too appealing. If that's the case, there are ways to maximise each clothing item by breaking things up with solid colour. 

For example, if you've got silly socks, wear them with a plain coloured pair of shorts. Then, if you want a colourful shirt too, there's something in between to break up the look.
