Perhaps the only thing we enjoy more than a new season of shoes and boots is all the cute socks we get to wear them with—and this fall, there are more options than ever.
Ever since fishnet socks took over fashion's Instagram feeds last year, brands have put extra effort into the oft-neglected accessory. Now, on top of colors and patterns, there are textures, embellishments, and luxe fabrications to play with. Crushed-velvet socks, for instance, offer an unexpected way to try out the fall trend while delicate tulle styles (adorned, in some cases, with hearts or stars) are like lingerie for your feet. Even classic cotton-blend options feature interesting details like color-block panels, embroidery, and tongue-in-cheek slogans.
