Sometimes even the most simple of tasks is a struggle. What should be an easy process can become complicated and confusing especially when you start overthinking and focusing too much on the details.
For some this happens when it comes to tying their shoe laces. For me personally, it happens when I’m sitting in front of a laptop and forget how to spell a word or phrase a sentence. Yet for others, it happens when they’re getting dressed each morning.
It seems that many guys out there are having trouble deciding what socks to wear with the outfit they’ve put together. And here at FashionBeans, we can sympathise with this issue.
It used to be so simple just a few years ago. Menswear was not as popular then as it is now – even a pair of striped socks made a statement. That’s if you could find a pair of striped or bold coloured socks in the first place. Today we’re spoilt for choice, and it’s this choice that can leave you feeling overwhelmed when it comes to making what should be such a simple decision.
In addition, every man with even a passing interest in fashion these days believes that wearing a bright sock is enough to separate them from the pack and give them automatic style kudos, which simply isn’t true.
Like most things, style is based on understanding the rules and then breaking or bending them slightly. But nonetheless, there are still guidelines we should adhere to. We’ve all seen bad examples of socks within an outfit – it’s easy to do wrong, and often is.
