I’ll endure many a discomfort in the name of fashion, but one things I can’t stand is having cold, frozen feet. It’s just not something I’m willing to put up with on a daily basis, especially through another Seattle winter. That’s why I’m so excited that socks are having a big moment right now!
There’s so many choices in the sock world going on, from kitschy patterns to monochrome designs. My favorite is the bold colors and block patterns of these ankle socks. COS really set the tone with their awesome pair of Contrast Socks (pictured above) made from a soft cotton-mix of contrasting melange panels and finished with a rolled cuff.
Things really get fun with the pattern of these ribbed knit socks from ASOS. The Stance Disco Calf Socks pop with light pink stripes, angled cream patterns and a fun golden toe. I could so see these with a chunky pair of boots over tights for a street-inspired look.
I really love these Dotted Knee-High Socks from Anthropologie, they’re just the right height to peak out from the top of all my boots. This wool blended sock has little knit button details that have a very lunar-phase feel to them.
For a sunny day option and extra style points, the Lightweight Block Pleated Rib Sock from Urban Outfits are perfect. These colorblocked crew-length socks have an stripe pattern and bright ribbed trim for a perfect fit.
For more neutral tones, the ‘Vertigo’ Colorblock Crew Socks from Nordstrom keep things interesting and add that geometric pop. The cotton crew socks have an asymmetrical color blocking pattern, feature a seamless toe and elastic arch support for a super-comfy fit.
