I don't think there's a specific consensus pick--if you want to go with something other than tone-on-tone (e.g. a blue based sock) you can probably try a rich burgundy or forest green sock to give a little bit of color to the look.

Blue. As close to the suit color as you can get. White shirt and no tie is not a good look, though.

If you’re wearing shoes with natural finish edges, it doesn’t matter which colour you choose for your socks

I don't mean to be insultingly negative but I think that such light-coloured shoes would only look good with much lighter trousers: cream or very light beige; certainly not blue.

I don't see how sock colour could rescue such a combination, in all honesty, but if one had to try, I would suggest a blue that is lighter than that of the trousers (but a similar cast).
