15 Ways to Wear Socks With Boots This Winter

After summer days spent san socks, thanks to the ease of wear of flats, sandals, and heels, it can seem like a slight annoyance to now have to dig through your sock drawer to find a matching pair (the struggle is real). It's no longer possible to leave the house with bare feet, but as it turns out, fashion-forward socks can actually make for a great wardrobe addition—especially when worn with a pair of boots.

As proof of this, we've searched through Instagram to find some examples of how fashion girls are wearing socks with boots this winter, from the always-classic no-show picks (perfect when wearing sock booties that leave very little room for anything else) to high-knee athletic ones you wore to during your high school volleyball match (yes, we're serious).

One look at the below outfits and you might just be convinced to leave your socks peeking out over your boots the next time you step outside of your house. Read on to see the best socks with boots outfits, and then shop our favorite trend-forward socks.
