Men’s Style Tips: Our back-to-work favourites

Blog, Men’s Style Tips • 05 September 2023

Dress for success this September…

Do you remember that back to school feeling? First day of term, wearing a fresh uniform and armed with a new pencil case. All set to conquer the school year.

While adult realities may be a little different – more back to reality after the kids/grandkids go back to school after a long summer break – there is still something to be said for resetting and refreshing your office style in September. Whether you are heading back into an actual office, or work a more hybrid model, your office style is still a key part of feeling confident and ready to take on those boardroom or boardZooms.

And we are here to help. If your professional style is still all about the suits or if you prefer a more laidback attire, there is no better feeling than pulling on a great pair of socks in the morning. Beat those back to work blues, why not upgrade your work wardrobe with some of our favourite styles?

What colour of socks should you wear to work?

There is power in the pop. Especially in a Saffron pop with our smart Simply Sartorials.

Gone are the days when black and grey were the only appropriate socks for the workplace. And thank goodness. There is real power in a dash of colour. The right shade can lift your look and your mood. Classy, colourful socks are a great way to add some professional personality at work. With suits, block colours are always a safe bet and our signature Simply Sartorial collection has over 35 shades to choose from. Try Saffron with navy tailoring and Ruby Red with charcoal. The block colours of Simply Sartorial look equally great if your work style is more casual. Love black but want to add a lift? Pink Friday socks are your friend. Or for a contemporary check, try Shaken & Stirred collection in a warm Russet. They smarten up jeans a treat.

A modern Prince of Wales check in warm Russet – our timeless Shaken & Stirred.

What traditional socks are most stylish?

Jermyn St Houndstooth in Blue will put a spring in your step

 For those with a classic sense of style, who prefer to stick to steadfast shades like grey, black and navy, we see you. Keep it simple with our ribbed Scottish Lisle Cotton socks, Simply Sartorial in Ebony Black or Earl Grey. Or, for a full, stylishly monochrome refresh, you can’t go wrong with the Simply Black Collection – these 15 pairs will get you back in black, but have the playful addition of colour in the iconic LSC logo embroidery.

If you trust traditional, but want to add a twist, why not opt for an understated pattern. Our Spot of Style range is low key style personified (the Classic Black pair are a great way to smarten up chinos and crips white trainers), while our. Jermyn St Houndstooth collection is a modern twist on a quintessentially British classic. The perfect dash of flair.

What socks can you wear if you are on your feet all day?

For those of us whose workspace is anything but a traditional office, we have you covered too. On your feet all day? Your socks will require extra breathability, comfort and durability.
