16 Reasons To Stock Up On Fall Socks

It's time to stop overlooking your socks. In June, Business of Fashion called socks "fashion's new secret weapon," noting that luxury labels have transformed them from a practical everyday item to status symbol. And with Fashion Month now over and out, it's clear there was one accessory that popped up on what feels like nearly every single runway — a cool pair of socks.

Brands are really delivering, too; from fast-fashion go-to's like & Other Stories to high-end wonders like Balenciaga and Prada, there's no shortage of amazing socks in varying fabrics, prints, and textures to add to your arsenal for the season. Sure, knitwear is deserving of all the love it gets this time of year (they don't call it #sweaterweather for nothing), but that doesn't just include sweaters.

Next time you slip on a loafer, boot, or even a sandal, try to add a fun sock to the mix, starting with these picks ahead. See, a little thing can go a long way.
