SOCK IT TO HIM

Just in case a jittery groom needs last minute advice on what to do when he gets to the altar, Lillian Rose offers a helpful reminder that can be worn down the aisle. A pair of dress socks that reads “Keep Calm and say ‘I Do’” riffs on a classic British motto and will be playful fodder for at least a few photos at a wedding or bachelor party. lillianrose.com

PRICE: $12.25
