Stripes are a perfect choice for those who perhaps don’t want to go the whole hog with overly quirky colored socks on your celebration day.
A coordinated stripe can work really well by adding a splash of accent color without appearing too controversial or moving too far away from the color pallet of the wedding.
Stripes are classy and can mix perfectly with the overall wedding theme. However, a vibrant mixed color stripe will be a real talking point amongst the guests while also adding a contrast to the more traditional wedding themes. Why not invest in a whole set as gifts for the important men in the wedding party such as brides father, best man, ushers, etc.
