A while ago, I went somewhere where u had to wear a button down and slacks.
I wore gray slacks but I could not find my black socks. Fuck it, I wore my brown socks.
And guess what?
Nobody looked twice.
Ok ok I really have no way of knowing that… but nobody said anything to me about it. I wasn’t wearing highwater pants anyway, so my socks were covered most of the time.
One time as an experiment I even wore two socks that didn’t match each other.
Now don’t get me wrong, I know which colors go with which, but if you’re wearing dress socks that don’t go with your outfit, it’s not that big a deal.
