Choosing the length of a sock can often not be so simple, especially if we are attending a wedding. However, there are some points of reference that we can take into consideration.

In fact, the general rule establishes that for an impeccable look, men's socks must reach below the knee or in any case be long enough to cover the calf .

If you know you have to attend a formal occasion such as a wedding where elegance is required, then the short stocking is not the right choice .

Remember one important thing: As the formality of the event decreases, so does the length of wedding stockings you need to wear.

This is an unwritten rule but if followed it will allow you to be adequate and coherent with the context in which you will find yourself.

The color to avoid

It is known that color plays a key role not only on a psychological level but also and above all on a formal level. Getting the wrong color of a stocking can completely ruin your style and make you unable to be appropriate for the wedding ceremony you will be attending.

Everyone agrees on one thing: the only color that is absolutely forbidden for a man's wedding sock is white .

The use of white stockings is allowed only during sports but they must be strictly terry cloth (possibly short).

The fabric to avoid

If you want to look bad at a wedding you have a very simple way: wear terry socks.

We get to talking about pairings, starting from the classic one . It allows you to play it safe and follow the traditional rules which are still a must, a point of reference.

We are of course talking about the tone-on-tone combination and it involves choosing a sock that recalls the chromatic tones of the trousers or shoes.

Brown shoes or pants, for example, require brown socks just as black shoes or pants require black socks.

It is a simple solution to combine socks with a solid color men's suit but it is equally effective for separate suits.

The tone on tone must be applied paying close attention that the shade chosen is always sufficiently lighter or darker than the shoe or trousers so as to clearly notice the difference.

Advice: do not overdo the contrast because the chromatic combination must always be pleasant and appreciable.

If, on the other hand, you are looking for a more original solution, the modern combination allows you to combine accessories, such as socks and tie, sweater and shirt.

It is capable of giving your look that extra touch of personality compared to other combinations.

Tip: Pay less attention to the color of the shoes and mainly consider the color of the jacket. Choose socks that match the dominant color of the jacket and the secondary color of the trousers (possibly tone-on-tone for the latter).

Finally, each sock is inspected, ironed and washed by hand.
