Autumnal trends for your sock drawer

As the weather cools and your summer essentials are firmly placed in the back of the wardrobe until next year, your autumn staples return to your day-to-day life. This year, several subtle fashion trends have emerged, which will ease your wardrobe through these transitional months. Here, we highlight how you can add some understated style to your autumn sock drawer.

Explore darker hues of your favourite colours

Often during the colder months, you naturally gravitate towards darker colours. If throughout the summer you rocked our Pink Friday socks with pride, upgrade your wardrobe with its autumnal cousin, Simply Sartorial Rich Burgundy. Love the colour/pattern combination of our summery Bloomsbury Blue? Enter the Greenwich Fine Spot style in Blue, for those drab autumn days.

Add a pop of pattern

Summer often calls for bright block colours, whereas autumn is all about the patterns. Classic prints like Herringbone and Houndstooth are a simple, stylish addition to any look, or why not choose from one of our eye-catching designs, such as Jacquard in Bordeaux or Spot of Style in Bordeaux?

A bolt (of) the blue

What colour consistently makes your outfit look polished? The trusty hue of navy blue. There is a reason why any sleek gentleman’s wardrobe will include many blue items, in all shades. To add a bolt of blue vibrancy, why not try our Spot of Style Navy or Jermyn St. Houndstooth in Blue.

Warm tones are the way forward

Your wool trousers, jumpers and jackets will often be a cooler palette of colours (think greys and blacks), so adding in warm tones will upgrade the details in your look. Try our Ottaway Style Purple, Shaken & Stirred in Mustard and Spot of Style Burgundy as quintessential warm autumn styles to incorporate into your wardrobe.

For a covetable autumn palette, we have curated the Park Lane 15-pair gift box. This collection of warmer tones and perfectly patterned styles is the ultimate box for a refined sock drawer refresh.
