When it comes to personalizing a wedding party outfit, it seems like the gals have all the fun. We can accessorize our hair, wear head to toe jewelry, paint our nails (practically an art form these days), wear the cutest shoes around – you name it. When you’re a dude, you’re a little more limited. Sure, some grooms are all about throwing on a cowboy hat and boots for that rustic wedding or going with an unexpected color or pattern for the vest and tie, but more times than not, personalizing your tuxedo as a groomsman has to veer towards the more subtle approach. If the bride expects you to be in black patent leather shoes and you show up in cowboy boots, steer clear.
That’s why we are super fans of the personalized sock trend that’s showing up under the break in your tuxedo pants. Call it ankle candy. Call it a step in the right direction. (I’m sorry – I always have to go there. Always.) Choose a pattern for the entire groom’s party to wear or let each guy go with a sock he can truly call his own – when the pant legs are down, no one knows any better. When the pant legs come up, well, the party in those pants will be set free. Here are just a few of our fave ways grooms and their men are rocking out with their socks out.
