Accessories are ideal to enhance your outfit, especially for men, who are generally more sober than women. Men’s accessories can add personality and freshness to a look. As an accessory, we think of socks, which in addition to being the perfect detail to give style and elegance to your outfit, are an important element that brings ease and comfort to your feet. But you still need to make a choice adapted to your look.
Socks to give elegance to your look
For many men, socks are a common accessory, they only change their pairs when they are worn, punctured or mismatched. However, they are not to be neglected, because the outfit is no longer the only guarantee of elegance. Apart from the brand or the quality of your outfit, you need accessories such as a nice pair of socks to compose a trendy and elegant look. However, it’s not just a question of choosing just any socks. It’s fundamental to know which pair will suit the look you’ve adopted.
The choice of socks : factors to take into account
The choice of socks is not to be taken lightly. With the plethora of variations available, it’s easy to get lost in them. To help you avoid this kind of puzzle, Ma Famille Bonheur men’s socks are specially made according to the rules of French craftsmanship, with certified ecological or organic quality depending on the model. These socks are carefully designed down to the last detail, to offer you comfort and elegance. Also, there are a few parameters that you must take into account: from the material to the different models, through the colours, you will have enough to make an optimal choice.
Betting on quality socks
When choosing your pair of socks, you should first and foremost focus on quality materials. And when you talk about quality socks, you’re talking about soft and durable materials such as :
- Scotland yarn, cotton having undergone mercerisation, is very soft and essential in the manufacture of socks,
- combed merino wool, it combines softness and suppleness to guarantee constant and irreproachable quality,
- natural silk is a material with exceptional properties and is often considered the queen of fibres in the textile world,
- Cashmere, an animal fibre derived from the long wool of Cashmere goats, is soft and light and highly appreciated for its insulating properties,
- Egyptian long-fibre cotton.
Indeed, the material used in the manufacture of socks is an essential factor in determining the quality or level of range of the product. A better quality pair of socks is the best way to add value to your outfit, whether it’s a suit or a casual outfit. Also, socks are most often in demand on a daily basis whatever the occasion and the season. That’s why it’s important that they are of very good quality, guaranteeing a long life and optimum comfort.
Take account of size diversity
There are several styles of socks, which should be differentiated so that you know which ones to choose and how to match them. The sock is an accessory that groups three different categories according to size. These are :
- of low births,
- modern socks,
- socks and solerettes.
Higher up, the stockings cover the calves and stop just below the knee. They are very popular with costume lovers, they are a perfect symbol of elegance and are perfect for winter because of their size. However, you can wear them in the summer, if it suits you.
Modern socks, on the other hand, are above the ankle and reach mid-calf. It’s really a balance between socks and stockings. They can be worn in all seasons and are available in sport, casual and dress versions. Socks and solerettes are worn shyly above the ankle, while socks and solerettes, which are a little more discreet, are well concealed in the shoes.
Matching socks to your outfit
Most of the time, it is difficult to match socks to your outfit. The colour of the sock should match the colour of the shoe. For example, you will wear brown socks if you choose to wear brown shoes. If you don’t have socks in the same colour as your shoes, just choose socks that are darker than your shoes.
Matching socks to a suit
It is also quite possible to match socks with trousers, especially if it is a formal setting. For example, for a blue suit, you should wear navy blue socks. This is a perfect match for lovers of a classic look. The latter, being in sobriety, choose neutral socks that blend perfectly with timeless pieces to go to the office, for business meetings or solemn events.
Don’t hesitate either to subtly use a colour that is present in other accessories such as the brown of a belt for example. You can also opt for a total look with trousers, jacket and shoes in the same colour, but only match the sock with the jacket pocket. The best to give a refined touch to the detail.
For those of you who really want to have fantasy even in a formal environment, you can afford a colourful pair of socks, provided you wear them with a sober outfit. So dare to wear green or red socks with a grey suit and burgundy or red socks for a navy blue suit. This assortment is perfect for a refined and elegant profile that loves detail without overdoing it. Do you want to be even more out of the ordinary? You can try stripes or polka dots, in case the environment is casual.
Matching socks to casual wear
The same rule applied for your suit is valid for casual wear, i.e. the matching of your socks to your trousers. However, with the casual look, you have the possibility to be much more imaginative. You are free to dare original pairs with colours and patterns of your choice. However, be careful not to fall into ridicule. Socks are therefore an essential accessory to our wardrobe. They now occupy an important place of importance as a fashion accessory and deserve to be well chosen. You can also read: CREST, Made in France for men.
