Should my socks match my pants or my shoes? This is one of the most common question men ask. The answer is simple. Socks should always match your pants, never your shoes. One of the goals when wearing socks, besides protecting your feet, is to elongate the pants silhouette. If you match your socks to your shoes, you are creating an impression of a bootee, which just looks weird.
A wedding is a very exciting time for any couple. Traditional or not, the wedding should reflect your combined wishes and style. Much of the planning and arrangements will be around the bridal party, wedding dress and bridesmaids outfits, and very often the groom and his party are left to follow instructions from the bride.
Sometimes rules are meant to be broken, but there are a few cardinal rules when it comes to socks. Bending and outright breaking of rules will take you into your own personal style when it comes to colors and patterns, but it's never acceptable to wear socks that are anything less than in perfect condition. Those foot coverings need to be checked and replaced regularly to ensure your footwear is as fresh and elegant as the rest of your attire.
