# Why wear brown socks?
Brown socks are timeless classics: in fact, the only item that might be more classic is a pair of brown leather shoes which are everywhere! Thankfully, when put together, the two go hand in hand!
Brown socks aren’t just limited to tone-on-tone styling, they will also go with suits and trousers of all colours; navy, grey, green, red or even orange. Brown is an understated colour which goes very well with brighter colours, creating lively contrasts.
# Which patterns go well with brown?
When paired with other colours, brown’s simplicity brings out the colours of an outfit. When playing around with colour contrasts, why not try brown socks ribbed with blue stripes, or even match brown with cream in a houndstooth pattern!
