White. I think that navy socks look ugly unless you have a navy hornpipe.

White - it should be mandatory! I don't care for navy socks because it's too dark near/on the feet with regulation black ghillies. White socks make your feet "pop" and "show up" better than navy - the better to show those good positions and turnout!

I wear navy socks with my navy suit. My dance teacher says it makes everything look longer (and perhaps to hide my lack of turnout?? lol)

I stuff the first pair of socks that are blue, navy, black, greay or white into my bag, and if I can't find any I go without. LOL! So I voted other.

Thanks for this thread! DD is competing in the hornpipe for the first time next weekend and just asked dance teacher yesterday. Teacher said dark socks(hornpipe outfit is navy) while all the dancing moms said white!

Teacher said the dark socks make the lines of the dance/dancer look longer. Moms said the white socks accentuate the toe points and the footwork...

I have seen both and do agree the white is nice to show off feet. DD has nice toe points but is still working to perfect this dance. I will leave it to her to decide as long as it seems either is acceptable by regulation! Thanks!

Normally white but during a concert I wouldn't be surprised if we had to dance with our Macleod hose because of a quick change.

I wear white socks with my navy suit because I agree with danzzzzzer I like the pop. I also think it brings the eyes to the feet which hopefully are nice and pointed. It stands out and I like it plus I already have tons of white socks from when I was younger. I do think navy socks look good as well but white is my personal preferance :D

White, because I have a white outfit. My dancers have to wear coordinating socks: white with a white outfit, navy or black with a navy suit. In shows with extremely limited changing time I sometimes relax this, but in competitions I'm very strict.

I am actually liking the look of the black outfits and am thinking of changing to white socks if I do that.

For first comp a few years ago, neither of us has any idea and my daughter wore flesh tights and no socks! she played a blinder and got nothing so we realised it was the lack of socks that did it as she has been placed high since then wearing white socks with navy oufit. xxx

I wear black (with a navy outfit). I think it makes your footwork look neater worn with the black pumps.

My understanding is that white is always worn. And it certainly would show up better than navy.
