The Best Colour Socks to Wear with White Trainers

Did you know that the socks you wear with trainers can impact your entire look? From ankle socks to sports socks, red socks to white socks, it’s an important aspect to get right to match your vibe for the day.

If you’re not sure how to style your socks with trainers, stay tuned, as we’ve got everything you need to know right here.


Can you Wear White Socks with White Trainers?

The good news is white trainers are extremely versatile and can be paired with a wide variety of sock colours. One of the most popular colour combinations is white socks with white trainers. This classic look offers a simple, minimalistic and effortless aesthetic. Using a different shade of white can help to differentiate the socks from the trainers and create a modern style. 

We all know that white trainers and white socks are susceptible to dirt, and if you want to make sure they always look fresh, you’ll need to clean them regularly. 

To keep your white vegan trainers looking white, our trainer cleaner kit and trainer protection spray are the perfect solutions. All you need to do is dilute the cleaning solution in cold water and use the brush to remove any dirt.

If there are deeper or more noticeable stains, spray the cleaner directly onto the trainer and scrub the affected area. Once the trainers are clean and dry, spray them with the protection spray for long-lasting protection against water and stains.

Can you Wear Black Socks with White Trainers?

Wearing black socks with white trainers is uncommon but not impossible to pull off. While it can achieve a cool, monochrome look, the harsh contrast can be off-putting to some. If you do decide to wear black socks with trainers, we suggest choosing black ankle socks for a subtle combination.

Or slightly longer socks with white accents could also work to help balance the black-and-white contrast. We’d also recommend adding another black element to your outfit, such as a black t-shirt or hoodie, for a more cohesive look.


Can you Wear Colourful Socks with White Trainers?

Absolutely! Wearing colourful socks with trainers is a great way to add a pop of colour to your outfit and make a statement. Red socks are particularly popular with white trainers as they are a confident, bold colour that will add a vibrant element to your casual look.

If you want to inject some personality, a bold print such as polka dots or animal print will help bring your outfit to life. Matching your statement socks to your accessories will also give your outfit a fashion-forward edge.

Can you Wear White Socks with Black Trainers?

While black socks with black trainers are best, wearing white socks with black vegan trainers is perfectly acceptable. Just like when you wear black socks with white trainers, make sure to either wear shorter white socks or pair your white socks and black trainers with a white t-shirt to soften the harsh monochrome look and blend it together well.

Ankle Socks vs Quarter Socks - What Occasions Suit Them?

Aside from the colour, the length should also be considered when wearing socks with vegan trainers. Of course, you can’t go wrong with the classic trainer sock. Perfect for the warm and breezy summer months, these socks act as an invisible liner and can be worn for plenty of activities, from wandering around shops to hitting the gym. Thanks to their no-show appeal, they’re also the best socks to wear with trainers and dresses.

Quarter-length socks, however, are ideal for when you want a bit more coverage than ankle socks but not all the height of crew socks. As the weather starts to get cooler, quarter socks will be your best friend. These socks can be worn under jeans, showing just a hint of colour and are much less likely to slip than ankle socks in your trainers.

Investing in a good quality pair of black socks and white socks is the best choice as they’ll pair well with any colour trainers - even vibrant neon trainers.
