|Mismatching like a Boss|
|This person deserves a trophy for the skulls and the proper mismatch|
So as there seems to be confusion on how to mismatch socks, let me spell it out for you.
1. It is not, and never will be, 'cool' to mismatch your regular or 'dress' socks.
You see, this is laziness. This is what gives true sock mismatchers a bad name. If the sock is meant to be matched, for heaven's sake please match it! This is as bad as wearing black and navy blue together, purple pants and an orange belt, or any kind of non-toe socks with flip-flops.
|Never, EVER, try to mix and match these type of socks|
It just doesn't work. So, for the sake of the fashion world and to prevent your date from thinking you're an idiot, match the socks that are meant to be matched!!!!!
2. Any socks that you wear should always be of the same style.
|Points for creativity, but NO.|
3. Try to match colors or patterns.
|Yes! Stripes and polka dots of the same color on a matching background. Yes!|
If there is some similarity between the socks, this speaks to a conscious choice. It looks better on your feet, and those people with understanding see your feet and think, They didn't match their socks! That looks pretty neat actually....
|Mismatching with class|
Stores have caught on to this fad and in an effort to help with proper sock mismatching, now sell socks that purposefully mismatch. These are usually simple mismatches that are of alternating colors in the same patterns, but they know how to do it. If you're confused, just go to a store, purchase a pack of non-matching socks, and ONLY wear the socks together that come from the pack. It'll be okay and you'll look like a mismatch newb but you'll be getting there.
4. Try choosing socks of the same style, in solid colors that complement each other
|Any of these can be combined with the other, it works!|
5. Have fun with it!
|Bright and yet subtle. Brilliant!|
