Charming Spring Socks That Are Anything But Snoozy

It may be getting (marginally) warmer as we head into May, but, as much as we hate to admit it, not every spring morning is fit for bare toes. Luckily, pairing socks with shoes — whether they’re open-toed cage sandals, traditional pastel pumps, or metallic oxfords — is no longer a frumpy sartorial gaffe. And you know what that means? We’re breaking out our new warm-weather steppers STAT.
Still, even though socks are high on the snooze-list, this season, we found 10 ultra-chic winners that are quickly taking the crown for the quickest — and, in most instances, cheapest! — way to upgrade our spring wares. Click through for our favorite below-the-knee picks.
