Winter is in full swing, and here are some of the styles we're rocking this year!

 

Tights

Tights are always in style for winter layering, and we’re obsessed with these designs from Smartwool. The fine wooly fibers wick away moisture and help to keep heat in, like a fancy version of long underwear, while providing an excellent base layer for thigh high socks. And we think they’re pretty great on their own, as well.

Patterns

This season we’re especially obsessed with complex knitted patterns. They work really well for more neutral, sophisticated style, lending themselves well to business environments, and can layer over tights to make for very cozy legs all day long.

Knee Highs

Our love affair with knee highs continues this year, as we can’t really get enough of colorful socks peaking over the top of knee- and calf-high boots. Keep your legs warm, protect your feet from stiff boots, and look cute doing it!

Sweater Socks

Nothing quite beats a cozy sweater, and we’ve got a couple styles that emulate that look (and cozy factor) quite well. So many, in fact, that we did a whole blog post on them a couple of years ago! Our favorites vary from year to year; right now we’re flirting with marled styles. We love the subtle texture and thicker knit that makes our marled yarns so special.

Arm Warmers & Leg Warmers

Enough about feet! Your hands tend to take on the bulk of the cold in winter, since they’re a bit harder to cover up than feet—especially with smart phones constantly demanding your attention. We’ve found that fingerless gloves are an excellent solution. They keep your hands warm, without adding any bulk to your fingertips! Add arm warmers over top for extra warmth, and pack a pair of leg warmers for when the weather gets exceptionally nippy.

Bare That Ankle

We’ve been hearing a lot about bare-ankles being a fashion statement right now, and while we can’t say that we agree that socks ruin a perfect ankle shot, we do have a ton of fun footie and no-show socks that can be very helpful if you’re rocking this look. Some of them even come in multi-packs, for footies every day of the week!
