Casual Wear Only

First of all, this trend is only for casual wear. Not formal or semi formal, as some high school students like to try this trend at their graduations. Keep in mind that not any type of pants can be tucked into any type of socks either. The socks need to compliment your pants which need to tie into your footwear. Yes, this is actually more complicated than you thought!

Footwear is important with this trend and as so, we tend to like the white Nike Air Force 1s. The versatility is apparent as these shoes can be paired with any casual summer outfit. If you want to wear a pair of all black running shoes, opt to wear a dark wash denim jeans tucked into black socks for a stylish look.

When deciding what type of socks you should wear your pants tucked into, it is necessary to pick the pants you will wear first. either way, pair dark colour cotton socks when wearing a pair of dark colour running shoes and vis versa when wearing white running shoes. For a more creative look, opt to wear socks with stripes, a logo, or with two different colours.

Arguably the best type of pants to wear tucked into socks will be skinny or slim fit denim jeans. for the summer, opt to wear an acid wash or jeans as light tucked into white socks and with white running shoes. Black jeans can be worn easily in the cooler months and should be paired with black socks and black footwear.

Keep your shirt simple when wearing the tucked in pants look. a great shirt to wear in the warm months will be a polo shirt which is a light colour. Wear a dark button-down shirt as part of an outfit featuring indigo denim jeans. One notable mention is that men can always just opt to wear a plain t-shirt, which will always look good with pants tucked into socks.
