Should I match my socks to my shoes, like brown socks with brown shoes?
Not ideally. The best look is usually socks matched to the trouser color, so that there’s as seamless a blend as possible if the cuff rides up.
More daring dressers can experiment with contrast colors, though it’s best to keep these at least somewhat restrained — lavender with gray and so on. Patterns like argyle are also a good way to introduce some color while still keeping a base that matches the trousers.
If you really can’t find anything that matches your trousers or makes a nice complement, matching the color of the shoe leather is sort of a distant third option. It’s acceptable, but not great-looking.
