The Colour Theory Behind Mango

Blog, Men’s Style Tips • 11 July 2022

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.

Bringing the bright for summer is our new colour of the season, Mango. This cheerful, glowing shade is stylishly surprising and warm.

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

Make way for Mango

Midway between yellow and orange – a golden orange if you will – Mango is our newest Simply Sartorial shade. As its tropical name suggests, it embodies sunny warmth and positivity. As you’d expect from the love child of two of the colour wheel’s brightest hues, golden orange is a colour that signals happiness and energy. Colour theorists suggest that wearing it – even just a pop at the socks – has the power to uplift those around you, spreading a friendly openness. And sharing some happiness can only be a good thing, right?

Is golden orange your favourite colour?

Colour psychologists would say that lovers of golden orange are naturally social and great communicators. You are full of ideas – but importantly also of enthusiasm for other people’s ideas. Friendly, fun to be around and open, your energy is infectious. You have a tendency towards rushing and impulsiveness, so remember to slow down and savour the mangos sometimes …

How do you wear Mango socks?

Despite the vibrancy, this shade of sunny orange yellow is surprisingly versatile. A pair of Mango socks really lifts navy or darker denim. Add a playful but sophisticated dash to navy tailoring or darker chinos, for example. They will also be the perfect pop to warm up whites: denim, a classic white t-shirt, crisp white trainers and some Mango socks? Your off-duty summer look sorted. Feeling bold? These socks will be a classy clash with fuschia pinks and brighter blues.
