Every groomsman look typically starts with a suit or tuxedo. Then, come the accessories like suspenders, tuxedo shoes, cufflinks, and, one of our favorites, groomsman socks. While it’s safe to assume the suit or tux you’re wearing to the wedding errs on the side of classic — though we love a bold groomsman look be it a bright green or blue suit, a burgundy tux, or luxe jacket with shimmer-and-shine details — your socks are the perfect opportunity to have a little fun and show off your personality.
Whether you’re a groom shopping for your groomsmen, a best man stepping in to help his soon-to-be-wed pal, or a groomsman in charge of making your own selection, there are so many stylish groomsmen socks to consider. The first order of business is deciding on whether or not the sock choice will be uniform. Then, you’ll need to land on a style.
You might be the type to go bold with a color-blocked sock, graphic pattern, or a novelty print. Or, perhaps you’re looking for a sock that pays homage to your hobbies or the wedding venue? Has the designer bug bitten you? If so, we’ve scouted stylish designer versions that stand the test of time, whether your taste is classic or quirky. You might be shopping for groomsmen socks as a gift if you’re the groom. In this case, a customizable style is both thoughtful and unique. If a budget-conscious sock is a goal, myriad brands have affordable styles on offer from stripes to spots and solid colors. Maybe you had no idea where to start! Fret not.
