Zac Frank

Light in the Loafers

Recently on David Letterman, the Editor of Vogue, Anna Wintour, asked him to show her his socks. Letterman pulled up with dark pant leg to reveal a very light, cream-colored sock. You may not be hanging out with the most powerful woman in fashion any time soon, but you still shouldn’t be wearing light socks with a dark suit. Socks should be darker than a suit’s fabric.

Black suit? Black shoes and black socks.

Blue suit? Brown shoes and darker brown socks.

Generally, don’t put black and blue together. You don’t want to be color coordinated with a bruise.
