Though we know a lot of folks in warmer climes go sockless, just as many opt for a lightweight sock to wick away sweat and add a little cushion to summer shoes.  Last year I shared some short socks for summer, and we’ve also looked at socks for sandals—but the wonderfulness of socks is that there are always new styles!  So here are some of our favourites for dressing up your toes as the weather settles into summer warmth.

Some of the newest socks we’ve got are the Sweet Marcel anklets!  Though all they’re all lovely, these two are some of the brightest and most summery patterns:

If lightweight anklets are your thing for summer, then the soft and slubby Mary Waffle Weave Crew and the silky (16% silk!) Brielle Straw Weave should hit the spot.

If you just need a little something to go between your foot and your shoe, you might find footies fabulous!

Summer slippers and flip-flops mean toes! Short styles like these keep your toes comfy (and help wick moisture) but let you wear those summer styles.

And, of course, now is the time for openwork patterns and sheers! Light little layers that let you dress up without warming you up.

So, if you are still rocking socks, what is your style? Super short, sweet little anklets or open work patterns?
