KNIGHT RIDDER NEWSPAPERS
The Boston Red Sox won the World Series, but that is old news. Consider now a red sock that comes also in green, blue and even chartreuse.
More men are wearing bright, multicolored striped socks and not just on Saturdays for walking the dog. Celebrity stylist Phillip Bloch told Newsweek magazine that they brighten dull trousers and "break the boredom of gray suits." Coordinate with a tie if you wear one. If not, let your feet enjoy the attention.
According to Newsweek, the selection includes Paul Smith's blue and lime green checks, J. Crew's red and black stripes and H Hilfiger's hot pink and red. Don't wear them with shorts or a kilt, the magazine cautions.
