Moves like Jacko

White socks are back — here’s the three best ways to wear them. Sha­mone!

Like the King of Pop

OK, so crys­tal-en­crusted socks may be tak­ing it a step too far, but bunched-up, white tube socks worn with black snaf­fle loafers and cropped trousers will look dan­ger­ous.

— Dark grey/pink wool trousers, £665; white wool socks, £225; black leather horsebit loafer, £490, all by Gucci

Like a 17th-cen­tury aristo

Off the wall but ef­fec­tive. Pick fine gauge silk socks in sparkling white, hike them up

high and wear with a tuxedo and jazzy slip-ons (we’d choose Jimmy Choos). It will add a re­gal edge to your black tie get-up.

— Black wool-mo­hair trousers, £245, by Gieves & Hawkes. White cot­ton socks, £14, by Pan­therella. Black pa­tent leather loafer, £450, by Jimmy Choo

Like a dude

White socks surfer-style are great in sum­mer but eas­ily trans­late to win­ter. Team ribbed socks with red or blue stripes with cut-off jeans, Vans skate shoes and an in­side-out shear­ling jacket for peak State­side slick.

— Blue denim jeans, £205, by Beams @ Mr Porter.

White/red cot­ton socks, £3.50, by Top­man. Cream can­vas trainer, £55, by Vans @ Mr Porter
