<p><span style="font-size: 16px;">Even the most perfect outfit can be ruined by a poor sock choice. If you get this part wrong, you can end up looking like you know nothing about fashion, like you&rsquo;ve never successfully paired a color in your life, and straight up like a clown. However, this doesn&rsquo;t mean that colors, patterns and other forms of fashion statements are excluded here, but it only means that you should be careful when implementing them. The point here is to find the balance, the middle ground of this conundrum and the equilibrium in which you will be comfortable.</span></p>
<div class="post-content" style="font-size: 16px;">
<p>For this particular reason, many people choose to wear only one type of socks and&nbsp;<a href="https://www.sockbin.com/blog/2016/06/wearing-bright-socks.html" target="_blank">they are usually plain black</a>. Some other dull choices are also often seen, but you don&rsquo;t have to do this to feel comfortable. You can start off slow and work your way up until you feel comfortable to even go sockless, although that is a whole other story. To start really slowly, let&rsquo;s shed light on a few popular misconceptions.</p>
<h1>Debunking the myths</h1>
<p>In order to make it easier for you to know what you should do, we should start with the things that other people are telling you. Why should you trust us instead of them? Because our way is more fashion-forward, innovative, exciting and interesting, and if that&rsquo;s not enough to persuade you, just keep reading and decide for yourself.</p>
<h1>Socks go in pairs</h1>
<p>Well, this is actually implied, but what is not implied is that you don&rsquo;t always have to wear socks from the same pairs. Have you ever heard of a fashion statement? Well than, make one. Take a sock from one pair and a sock from completely different pair and wear them together. The trick here is to make the socks absolutely different in order to let people know that it is on purpose.</p>
<p>Another great trick is to take two socks with identical pattern, but with different colors. It will confuse people but it will look extremely cool. On the other hand, you don&rsquo;t even have to do this. Just don&rsquo;t match them with anything.</p>
<h1>Socks match shoes</h1>
<p>I don&rsquo;t know who was the one to tell this lie and what was the motive behind it, but it is completely untrue. There is a bit of truth in every other myth in this article, but this one is an utter lie. What you get when you match your socks to the color of your shoes is an unnatural, bulky, awkward look that you really don&rsquo;t want. It makes your legs look shorter and your feet abnormally tall and even creates a boot-looking kind of situation. Not cool, man.</p>
<h1>Black socks are universal</h1>
<p>This one probably comes from a more conservative time, when women showing ankles was considered rude and inappropriate. However, there is some truth in it. Black socks truly are the most universal out there, but they still don&rsquo;t fit each and every outfit combination. For example, you would (hopefully) never wear black socks with brown suit.</p>
<p>Also, even though black socks are fitting to (almost) any occasion, they tend to get a bit boring. They show that you are conservative, that you don&rsquo;t take many risks and that you don&rsquo;t like to experiment. If that is you, it&rsquo;s fine, there is nothing wrong with being conservative, but if that is not you,&nbsp;<a href="https://www.sockbin.com/store/men/c-3">put on some colorful socks right away</a>.</p>
<h1>Socks match pants</h1>
<p>Actually, this is completely true &ndash; the socks should match your pants in order to make your legs appear longer and give you a smooth, immaculate line from head to toe. Now, the only problem with this is that, once again, you come off as conservative. Again, there is nothing wrong with being conservative, but if you actually aren&rsquo;t, you want people to know that. You want to show them right away that you are an amazing individual who likes to stand out from the crowd and be different, distinctive.</p>
<h1>What to actually match socks with?</h1>
<p>Yeah, now that I&rsquo;ve bashed everything that you know about matching the socks I should tell you what you should essentially do. Well, ideally, you shouldn&rsquo;t match your socks with anything. You should wear socks in all kinds of different, crazy colors, that will easily be noticed by other people and that will leave an impression of cheerfulness and awesomeness. You will, in no time, become &lsquo;that guy with those socks&rsquo; and you will stand out of the crowd. People will recognize you by this fashion statement.</p>
<p>There are two important things to watch out for when you choose to clash you socks to the rest of your clothes. The first thing to know is that this is not the most formal look. You shouldn&rsquo;t go to a job interview like this (depending on the job, you might even pull it off, but be sure to research dress code before you do this) and not to mention something more formal like a funeral.</p>
<p>The other thing to look out for is the unintentional clashing. Wearing grey socks with brown suit will look like you know nothing about colors because they are not the same, but still not different enough to make this fashion statement. Make sure to really clash, and for example wear bright yellow socks with navy green suit, or bright green socks with charcoal green suit. The possibilities are endless, but go steadily and make sure to learn from your mistakes.</p>
