Unless you're a shoes or accessories enthusiast, socks are almost an afterthought. You just throw on the closest pair and go about your day. But with the winter months in mind, it's time to rethink the kinds of socks you keep in your drawer, especially if you hate arriving home with toes numb from the cold. Put aside the thin or super lightweight pairs of socks you've been wearing for spring/summer and armor up your lower half with the coziest, toastiest, winter-appropriate socks. Our favorite options right now range from cashmere styles (my personal favorite) to wool blends and chunky knitted styles that basically operate as at-home slippers. Once you find the right pair of warm socks to survive winter in, you'll feel instant joy when you slip them on—promise. All you'll be missing is your favorite hot drink in hand.
