Men’s Style Tips: How to wear brown socks


Rich, warm and subtly sophisticated, brown adds strength and style to any wardrobe. No, you didn’t misread us, and yes we’ll go on record. We love brown.

It may come as a surprise, but far from being boring or folksy, brown is a versatile neutral worthy of your attention.

1. Variations on a Theme

Play with different tones of brown. Swap your cream chinos for a slightly more sophisticated pair in latte or tan and wear with brown socks and timeless brown monk straps.


2. Brown and Blue

As a colour, brown is smart but not stiff. It can add subtle polish to off-duty outfits as well as nonchalance to more formal workwear. Try a pair with jeans and a shirt for grown-up dressing down, or wear with a navy suit for elegant informality.


Brown socks and a sleek pair of trainers is an easy way to achieve effortless cool. Partner with well-cut trousers rather than jeans for a sharp, classic silhouette.

We have paired our Cotswold Stone here as a lighter option of brown.

3. A Hint of Hazelnut

Brown is the ultimate baseline alternative. This is an earthy neutral that works well with blues, black and other browns, as well as the equally earthy hues of warm reds, burnt orange and khaki.


Another option is instead of turning to the tried-and-tested realm of business greys when donning black, opt for a warm brown to break up the monochrome with understated confidence.
