The festive season often calls for a sophisticated refresh of your go-to formal wear. While the office party or a school friend’s seasonal soiree is never reason enough to brave the Christmas shopping throngs, they should be an excuse to indulge in a sophisticated new accessory. Whether it’s an all-out black tie wedding, an office party at the boss’ members’ club, or a low-key secret Santa swap, your socks should be worthy of a knees up. From a show-stopping pattern to a more subtle dash of colour, dress socks are the secret ingredient to a winning festive look.
To help you get it right on the night, here are five dress socks you can rock for a Christmas party (or any celebratory occasion) this season.
Spot of Style Socks in Classic Black
Classic meets contemporary in our bestselling Spot of Style design. This is the sock to select when you are attempting to decode the ‘black tie optional’ dress code on the invitation. With its suave polka dot design in trustworthy black and white shades, the Spot of Style in Classic Black is – without a doubt – one of the best dress socks for the Christmas Party.
Shaken & Stirred Socks in Mustard
A vibrant sock that will also keep you warm on those chilly evenings? Shaken & Stirred in Mustard truly delivers on both style and comfort. An excellent sock to wear with dark denim or chinos, Shaken & Stirred is a smart choice for a more casual affair. A modern twist on an English Houndstooth pattern, the playful pairing of yellow and red tones in this style adds a nice pop to any look.
Simply Sartorial Socks in Turquoise
If you’re looking to keep it classic but bright this party season, try our Simply Sartorial in Turquoise. This shade is an ideal companion to a sleek, velvet dinner jacket or wear with black jeans and a cashmere jumper for a more low-key affair. As an added bonus, Simply Sartorials are crafted from Scottish Lisle cotton which means these socks are lightweight enough to wear under your best dress shoes while still being durable for a night of dancing. A sartorial statement with minimal fuss.
Merino Socks in Dijon
Ah, Merino Socks. Soft, stylish and silky smooth, these styles will pull together any outfit in a matter of minutes. The warm Dijon shade adds a refined splash of colour to elevate your formal look and is casual enough to wear throughout the day – so no change is necessary before the evening festivities begin. A firm favourite among the London Sock Company team, our Merino socks are a versatile choice that looks perfectly at home with jeans, chinos or a sharp suit.
Ottaway Style Socks in Red
Add a festive pop to your Christmas party outfit with Ottaway Style in Red. Strike the balance between ‘getting into the spirit’ and staying true to your sense of style by pairing these bright socks with black trousers. Slightly thicker than most of our socks, Ottway Style is an inspired choice for any Christmas events held al fresco.
