Blue Socks and the Colour Theory

Blog, Men’s Style Tips • 03 July 2023

We are all about the positive power of colour at London Sock Company. We love how a dash of colour can keep the grey at bay. Colours can influence our mood. They can make us Walk Brighter. And every hue has its own power.

Make way for a new colour of the season, Denim blue. Contemporary, classic and cool.

But, what kind of mood does this blue it inspire? And what does it mean if you are naturally attracted to light blue? Read on to learn …

Cool, calm and classy

Much like your favourite pair of jeans, Denim blue is timeless. As effortless as it is stylish, our Denim blue socks are a lovely sun-kissed blue that will seamlessly slip into your sock drawer and step up your style, in one fell swoop.

The right kind of blues

This cool blue is fundamentally a peaceful and calming colour. Colour theorists believe that blues like this one signify trustworthiness and reliability. Pulling on a pair of denim blue socks will not only help you feel more relaxed and grounded, but put others around you at ease.

Is light blue your favourite colour?

Like brilliant blue, you are dependable and reassuring to be around. Colour theorists would say that you are calm and collected – someone you’d want to have around in a sticky situation. While your cool headedness can sometimes come across as aloof, true blue loyalists are ultimately a peaceful presence.

How to wear denim blue socks

Great news: blue is a year-round style hit. In summer, this colour is a staple – it’s the colour of the sea and a cloudless sky. Easy to dress up and down, Denim blue is imbued with the sort of cool nonchalance that the season calls for in spades. In winter, this lighter shade of blue pairs perfectly with the season’s charcoal greys, navy knits and even wine reds, and earthy greens.
