Pink Socks and the Colour Theory

Blog, Men’s Style Tips • 01 April 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 the new colour of the season, Pink, the perfect power pop for spring.

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

Rethink pink

Rosy and rakish, playful but polished, Pink is a classy pop that guarantees personality and the cheerful flair that brighter months deserve. Any idea that pink is a gendered colour anymore is nonsense. Pink is youth and it is romance. It is sophisticated and stylish – the sign of someone who knows how to put people at their ease. Even better? It looks great paired with a whole range of staple shades you are guaranteed to already have in your wardrobe: black, grey, blues, cream, dusty browns, even khaki.

Pink loves lifting your staple shades like navy, black and grey.

Is pink your favourite colour?

You’ve chosen a contemporary classic. Colour theorists would say that you are idealistic, charming and playful. You are approachable. Naturally stylish. A bit of a romantic who doesn’t take life too seriously.

Simply styling: a pink jumper with pink socks is a simple style win.

How do you wear pink socks?

We’ve come a long way since it was considered a statement to wear a pink tie to the office. Why, the pink shirt is basically a workwear essential – a corporate neutral, even. But beyond the classic pink shirt, a pop of pink can really transform an outfit. Want to lift your wardrobe ‘safe’ shades – navy, grey, black? A pair of pink socks is the answer. An effortless way to bring an outfit together is by pairing a jumper or shirt with your socks. Off duty, try Simply Sartorial Pink Friday socks with denim and a pink jumper. In the office, you can’t go wrong with a grey suit, pink shirt, and pink socks, with black Oxfords.
