Dandyism — the wearing of immaculate clothing made from the best materials, expressing cultured and refined language, engaging in a leisurely lifestyle, cultivating the Self — emerged in Regency England. Two centuries later, while the notion of the dandy (also known as a “gallant” or “beau”) has lost many, if not all, of its political associations, it has come to focus more on highly visible, refined dress, like the perfectly constructed, vibrant socks from Gallant and Beau: The British brand puts all of its energy into cultivating the spirit of the dandy in the argyle, striped, and dotted socks that make up its brash, cultured collections.

Basic is boring—especially when it comes to what’s happening below your pant hem. The easy fix? Standout socks that elevate your entire look. If you're stuck on solids, get in the game with a pair of neutral polka dots on a solid background then graduate to multi-colored stripes and pop color prints. It's a can't-fail style move that begs to be noticed.
