Men’s socks: the ultimate guide to styling your socks

Men’s socks are an exciting piece of clothing. While some may pay little attention to styling their socks with the rest of their outfit, stylish gentlemen will know that they are a small detail that can either pull an outfit together or serve as an unwelcome distraction.

Anatomic & Co has put together a complete guide on what socks you should be wearing with your outfits.

Plain Dress Socks

mens sock guide

Standard black, grey and navy socks make the best dress socks as they complete a sophisticated look when worn with a smart suit or tuxedo. When wearing a smart suit, always match the colour of your socks with the exact colour of your trousers. Plain white socks with a black or navy suit? No, no, no!

Textured Socks

quality dress shoes

Textured socks give your outfit more of an edge, but can add weight to your overall look. These socks work great with brogues and desert boots – just co-ordinate sock colours with the colour of your shoes. These socks can also be a shade darker, lighter or completely different to your trousers.

Statement/ Bright Socks

guide to mens socks

Bright and colourful statement socks have become popular in recent times, with more stylish gentlemen adding some extra attention to their outfits. Bright socks work well with plain suits and 1 colour dress shoes. When choosing your colour socks, it’s important to complement them with the rest of your outfit to avoid a clash and looking like a clown.

Patterned Socks

Surprisingly, patterned socks are rather versatile and easy to style. Apart from wearing them with a plain T-shirt, slim jeans and trainers, they can also be worn with a suit for a more dashing look.

Pattern socks that aren’t too bright or colourful work well with suits. Team a pair of polka dot or striped socks with your favourite brogues, lace-ups or even loafers – once again make sure that the socks co-ordinate with the shoes and keep the rest of your outfit simple.

4 iconic ’90s movie looks you can steal

The’90s were a revolutionary decade for fashion, and in recent times we have seen many trends from this era making a comeback. This season, stylish gents around the globe have embraced outfits inspired by the ’90s.

In the ’90s, mens fashion steered towards a more relaxed and minimalistic mood. The decade saw a rise in streetwear, sneaker culture and early athleisure. Artists like Kurt Cobain and even Justin Timberlake became style icons to many. Attires were loose and oversized, and casual dressing owned the era.

Something a little different than usual,  Anatomic & Co take a look at some of those trends from 4 iconic movies from the ’90s, and show you how you can rock them today.

 

’90s Movie Look 1

90s fashion style men

Film: Romeo and Juliette

Baz Luhrmann’s reimagining of the Shakespeare classic will forever be remembered as an iconic film in fashion history. Summer 2018 has seen designers falling in love again with Leo’s Venice Beach-inspired style; rolled up trousers and loosely buttoned shirts.

Get the look:

  • A loosely buttoned and flowing shirt
  • Cropped trousers or rolled up jeans
  • Statement white socks (if you’re up for it)
  • Shoe options? We’d go with some black loafers

 

’90s Movie Look 2

90s fashion style men

Film: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas

Staring perhaps the most well-known bucket hat in movie history, Depp’s Raoul Duke displays multiple trends included in our present wardrobes. It’s the typical ugly on purpose style inspiration. If you’re attending a dress up party anytime soon, you could always borrow this look.

Get the look:

  • An oversized jacket
  • A button up printed shirt
  • Tinted aviator sunglasses
  • A bucket hat
  • Long socks
  • Plain trainers like the Planalto leather trainer

 

’90s Movie Look 3

90s fashion style men

Film: Juice

A classic denim display, Juice featured four inner-city teenagers (including Tupac) who got caught up in the pursuit of power and happiness. Denim jackets, hoodies and some lace up boots? 100% ’90s style.

Get the look:

 

’90s Movie Look 4

90s fashion style men

Film: Trainspotting

This is for the rebel in all of us. Trainspotting serves as a ’90s grunge style visual reference. Think bleach blond hair, polo neck sweaters, checked shirts around the waist and faded denim. Mark Renton (Ewan McGregor) and fellow cast members outfits popularised this fashion trend which was rife throughout the 90s.

Get the look:

  • Bomber jacket
  • Polo neck sweater
  • Skinny jeans
  • High top trainers like the Santista

Suiting up for summer 2018 weddings

Suiting up for weddings in the summer can be really enjoyable for the stylish gentleman. Unlike weddings during colder seasons, which usually consist of customary dark wool suits, summer is a chance for you to have a little more fun with your suit and show off your personality.

Rather than trying to steal attention away from the bride or groom, you want to come across as well-dressed and look dapper – whilst at the same time being comfortable in your attire.

Anatomic & Co has put together a quick guide recommending outfits for weddings and other formal events in summer 2018.

 

Men’s summer suits tips

Suit Colour – Lighter fabrics will absorb less heat and feel lighter too
Shirt Colour – Keep it simple with a white shirt or mix it up with pastel colours like pink and light blue
Material – You don’t want to overheat in a thick suit so make sure it’s breathable and light
Shoe stylesLoafers and brogues partner well with the summer suit look

 

Men’s summer suit colours

mens summer suit styles

Summer is the season where you can really have fun with your suit colours. There’s less dark navy and black and more bright colours and whites. Here are a few alternative suit colours that you can embrace for summer 2018…

White – While you don’t want to compete with the bride at a wedding (unless you’re the groom), white is an ideal suit colour during summer. And if you do decide to go with a white suit, make sure the rest of your outfit isn’t all white too.

Cream – If you’re not too keen on a pure white suit, you could always opt for a beige linen suit. Beige suits are also more practical than white, allowing you to bring in other shades like a pale pink shirt.

Light Grey – While grey is a popular option all year round, a couple shades lighter will really give you that summer feel. This suit colour can also be styled with a variety of shirt colours, giving you more options. You can opt for a classic white shirt and add a summery touch with a colourful tie.

Mid blue – Go wild, it’s summer! A mid blue suit is a great alternative to navy and will give you a fresh look. Team it with an open light blue shirt and light brown shoes and you won’t go unnoticed.

 

Men’s summer shoes

A summer outfit is not complete without a stylish pair of shoes. Brogues and loafers are your best bet for summer weddings.

Loafers:

Loafers offer a cooler option as they can be worn with or without socks. They also add more of a summer vibe to your outfit as they come in a range of colours. This being said, it’s usually best to stick to more neutral colours like brown, navy and black loafers as they combine well with most suits.

Brogues:

Brogues are another classic style that will enhance your summer outfit. The decorative broguing never goes out of style.

How to style denim for summer 2018

It’s hard not to love a standard pair of jeans − a versatile item of clothing utalised by all men with a good sense of style. And just because the heat levels are turned up in summer months, it doesn’t mean you have to forget about your favourite pair of jeans or other denim attire.

A common misconception is that denim is not a suitable material for warmer conditions − but if you know how to style it and what to wear it with, it can become an essential to many of your summer outfits.

In fact, here at Anatomic & Co we consider denim a key item to summer styling. So here’s a quick guide on how to rock your favourite pair of jeans and other denim items this summer…

Wearing jeans in the summer

When it comes to wearing jeans in the summer, you may want to avoid your skinnies to give yourself more room to breathe. And it just happens that loose fitted jeans are more on trend in summer 2018. Not only do they look cool, but also feel cool as they won’t be stuck to your legs.

Summer is also a good chance for you to embrace white jeans. Pair these with a breathable pair of loafers and you’ll nail the sophisticated summer look.

Utalise ripped denim

Ripped jeans offer great ventilation (it may sound odd, but it’s effective), just make sure you save these for the weekend and more casual outings. Ripped style jeans offer character. Pair these with a plain T-shirt and a good pair of trainers to pull off the ultimate cool look.

Demin shorts

Every man should own a few pairs of good denim shorts to see them through the summer. Styling jean shorts is easy. You can either dress them down with a pair of trainers and a T-shirt, or you can go for a smart casual look by pairing them with a short sleeve button up shirt and a pair of loafers or boat shoes.

What about the denim Jacket?

This is an unusual item of clothing – it keeps in the warmth when it’s cold and keeps in the cold when it’s warm. So if you’re looking for an extra layer in the summer, these jackets can be your go-to.

 

So just to recap; denim clothing doesn’t have to be tight or heavy. If you’re shopping around this summer, look for some light denim pieces that will add a stylish layer to your different outfits. Jeans should always be considered when dressing for summer − a pair of white jeans may even become your best friend.

Men’s style guide: Perfecting office wear

Dressing for the office in the modern day is all about maintaining a smart and streamlined look, even when going casual.

While the days of a black suit, shirt and tie are no longer mandatory, you still need to look the part and give off a professional look. Your work attire will say a lot about who you are, and since you’re spending most of your weekly time in the office you need to be well presented.

Anatomic & Co has created a complete guide to office wear and perfecting your office dress code.

 

Smart wear office

men's office wear

While most offices these days don’t require you to wear a suit and tie, dressing formally does not go unnoticed – it shows you mean business. A suit always looks good while maintaining a touch of class.

Tips:

  • Opt for a grey or navy suit as this gives off a professional look
  • Keep your suit slim and well fitted to be on point
  • Brogues or Oxford shoes polish off a professional look

 

Smart casual wear office

men's office wear

If you’re not up to wearing a full suit, you can wear separates. This will give off a more relaxed look, while still maintaining sharpness.

Tips:

  • Pair more casual clothes like chinos with a suit jacket
  • By not adding a tie you will create a smart casual workwear look
  • Switch a button up shirt for a fitted crew neck T-shirt or jersey
  • Keep it simple – a black or grey jersey or a white T-shirt will be just enough to tone down your look
  • Brogues, Loafers or even smart casual trainers will complete your look

 

Casual wear office 

men's office wear

If you work in a laid back casual environment, a fitted pair of jeans can more than hold its own. But remember, you still want to look professional, so avoid ripped or baggy jeans. Add a classic fitted plain tee or one with a simple pattern and you’re good to go.

Tips

  • Keep things simple and go for dark blue or black jeans as these always look the smartest
  • Smart casual trainers, Chelsea boots or loafers will up your professional casual look

 

With these simple tips you’ll be more than set to suitably dress for your office. If you want your coworkers and clients to view you as a professional, you should always stick to the  guidelines mentioned above. You’ll be well on your way to impressing the right people in the right places or inspiring those who look up to you.

 

4 shoe styles to include in your summer wardrobe

With the warm seasons well underway, the stylish gentleman will be eager to learn more about how to dress for summer 2018. This is the season where you’ll be needing shoes that look and feel cool.

Picking your summer shoes isn’t a hard task, as long as you know which styles you are after.

Anatomic & Co has provided a style guide focusing on the best summer shoes to wear this year, as well as how to style them with the rest of your summer wardrobe.

 

Leather Trainers

mens_summer_shoes_2018

If you’re looking to strike the perfect balance between casual and classy, leather trainers could be just what you need.

Trainers are airy with plenty of room to breathe in and are ideal for many summer occasions.

You can wear your leather trainers with both short trousers or jeans, and don’t be afraid to partner them with smarter attire – mixing smart with casual is the latest trend.

 

Boat shoes

mens_summer_shoes_2018

If there’s any shoe that says “summer,” its the boat shoe. This shoe style features a rubber sole giving you a preppy look and can be worn without socks.

Choices of colours are abound, and you can enjoy deciding whether to go for a brighter option or a more sophisticated shade.

Anatomic & Co’s range of boat shoes have removable insoles and extra padding making them a pleasure to slide on for an all day affair.

 

Slip on shoes & Loafers

You simply can’t go wrong with this versatile footwear. Whether you’re having friends around for a barbecue or attending an important client meeting at work, these shoes can be styled to suit all occasions.

While loafers feature a practical moccasin slip-on design, they have a small heel, which makes them slightly elevated. They are also available in a wide range of textiles, such as leather and suede.

Loafers can be worn with chinos and a slim blazer for smarter outings, but make sure that the break of your trousers are above your loafers so that the whole shoe is visible.

If you’re looking to show off your calves this summer, loafers work great with shorts too.

 

Brogues

summer shoe styles

Just because it’s summer, doesn’t mean that good style and taste should be forgotten. While the brogue is a more formal shoe on this list, they make perfect summer dress shoes.

With the ability to work with many outfits, investing in a pair of brogues this summer is a given.

While black and brown brogues are often a safer option, other colours such as a navy are prime choice for summer. A fine option is the Tucano Vintage Navy brogue that features distinctive stitching and a contrasting England Rubber Gel sole.

 

You can never go wrong by including a pair of each of these shoes in your summer wardrobe. Now that you know what shoe styles to look for, go fourth and find the styles that suit you best.

 

 

Style Guide: How To Wear Men’s Boots

When it comes to footwear for the well-dressed man, boots are right at the top of that list.

Not only are men’s boots practical and comfortable to wear, but also versatile and stylish.

Anatomic & Co takes a look at the Desert, Chelsea and Ankle boot and how these boot styles work with a range of looks.

 

The Desert boot

how to wear boots

SHOE: FURTADO VINTAGE COGNAC

The desert boot is crafted with soft, flexible material and handmade style design. This type of shoe is ideal for warmer times as the shoe ensures your feet stay cool and comfortable.

However, it’s not just summer outfits that they work with. Desert boots and jeans are a classic combination – try stick with neutral shades to get the most out of your desert boots. Add a plain tee and you’ll be ready for a casual day out.

For a smarter sophisticated look, team your desert boots with denim jeans and just about any button-up shirt.

 

The Chelsea boot

SHOE: AMAZON MUSTANG TAN

The inherently cool boot is a style booster for many outfits. Thanks to their sleek appearance, Chelsea boots can work with both casual and formal outfits.

For casual wear, try opting for a brown or suede pair. Then, complete your look with jeans, a T-shirt and a jacket.

Alternatively, for a smarter look, opt for a pair of black or burgundy leather Chelsea boots and partner them with your tailored suit.

 

The Ankle boot

SHOE: COLORADO VINTAGE NAVY

Another highly versatile boot style in the Ankle boot, which reaches just above the ankle. The shoe can be partnered with a variety of outfits, including casual and smart casual attire.

You can pair your ankle boots or chukkas with either jeans or trousers and a button-up shirt or sweater.

 

Men have been wearing boots for many years and they have evolved over time into something that’s now so much more than just a practical shoe.

Today, boots work with both smart casual and semi-formal outfits, making them a valuable wardrobe addition for any stylish gentleman.

That being said, not all boot styles work with all occasions, so it’s important to know when and where you can dress up different types and the best ways to style them.
