Blue dress pants are a wardrobe necessity for all men. Simple yet stylish, blue dress pants are a versatile way to add effortless style to your look. Once you have the pants down pat, however, it’s time to think about how to accessorize the rest of the outfit. When thinking about what socks go with blue dress pants, the first thing to consider is what type of look you’re going for. Do you want your blue dress pants for formal occasions? Do you need blue dress pants for a casual event? Think about that and then move onto sprucing up your outfit with men’s socks with patterns, solid men’s socks, colored men’s socks, and more. By thinking about the entire look as a whole, you’ll keep yourself looking spiffy and fashionable at all times.
If you’re looking for variety, Boardroom Socks has the selection for you. We have plenty of both patterned socks and solid-color socks from which you can choose to pair with your blue dress pants. Great for everyday wear or special occasions, our socks do it all. We have lightweight, breathable sock options for the summer, as well as thicker, warmer sock varieties for the winter.
Colored Sock Pairing Tips
We’ll go into a breakdown of specific colors below, but as a general rule of thumb, it’s a good idea to choose at least one shade lighter or darker than your pants when coordinating your sock game. This will add dimension and contrast. In addition, it will help you avoid the dreaded almost matching conundrum, where your socks are just slightly off colored, but to a point where it is unfortunately noticeable.

Black Socks with Blue Dress Pants
Both dark-colored and both neutrals, black socks with blue dress pants can actually be a great combination if done correctly. Depending on the shade of your blue dress pants, black socks can be a stark contrast against the trousers. The blue you choose is completely up to you; go for a lighter cerulean if you’d like something a little more casual, or perhaps a royal blue if you’re looking to really make a statement. Whatever you decide, coordinating black socks with blue dress pants is an almost fool-proof way to maintain class while infusing style into your look.
Neutral Socks with Blue Dress Pants
Neutral colored socks are true to their name; they go well with almost anything, including blue dress pants. White or beige colored socks paired with blue dress pants can be great options for the spring or summer. Complement the look with a light-colored button-down shirt and you’ll have a real nautical outfit ready for sailing.
Bright Colored Socks with Blue Dress Pants
Bright colored socks are best suited for those looking to make a statement. Pair yellow, red, purple, or green socks with your blue dress pants and you’ll probably get some (positive) comments.
