Jeans

To be casual in your jeans, Adidas Superstar sneaker is the to go. Also make sure that you wear secret socks.

For a semi-casual look which works better with chinos and Grasshoppers or boat shoes, medium socks would do. Avoid happy socks as they’re usually loud with colours and might confuse your look.
