The best thing about fall (besides new TV shows and crunchy leaves and pumpkin spice lattes) is stepping out in a cute pair of boots, and what makes a cute pair of boots even cuter? A chunky cable knit sock peeking out from the top. Get the layered look without the bulk by cutting the arms off an old sweater to create these adorable leg warmers, which would look just as awesome pulled over thick tights as they do with jeans.

Socks have a knack for up and disappearing. Especially when they take a trip through the spin cycle. Pairs become singles. Singles become outcasts, sitting in the laundry basket, week after week, hoping for their mates to return. But they rarely ever do. Every once in a while, one finds a stray stuck to a pillow case, a victim of static cling. But usually, it’s hopeless. It’s tragic really. The sock population need not endure this needless suffering. There are things we can do to keep pairs together. The Sock-It is a sock lock that keeps pairs bonded through the trials and tribulations of wash, dry, fluff and fold. Just pull both socks through the center of the heart and wash as usual. Remember: Only you can prevent single socks. [$8.95, Amazon]
Sock choice is often determined by a blind grab from the sock drawer 5 minutes before you’re out the door. And that’s fine–we live in a fastpaced world, socks are an admittedly trivial part of our daily lives–but it is also exactly why a well-chosen pair of socks make such a big impact. Men’s style is usually simple and streamlined–a peek of a perfect sock can take an outfit from staid to spectacular. The well-chosen sock might be a bold color, it might be stripes, or argyle, or classic black. The well-chosen sock works in concert with the color of the pants and the overall vibe of the outfit. A man who puts some thought into his sock choice is a man who pays attention to detail, who takes pride in his appearance, who appreciates fashion. And we appreciate that.

Cuffed pants are having a moment, but now that it’s chilly ankles need a little warmth. So swap your plain sweat socks and trouser socks for these cute, stripe, and argyle socks that will look sweet peeking out between your pants and shoes.
I’ve hated wearing (and sorting) socks for years now because I find tube socks too bulky, binding, and boring. But after my recent introduction to Sock it to Me socks, I found myself trying to style a whole look that shows off the Chat Noir design. I love the wry smirk of the cat and the overall sinister feel of the socks. But if cats aren’t your thing, I bet Sock it to Me has a design that is … whether it be birds, eyeglasses, mustaches, skulls, or roller derby stripes — there’s something for every woman, man, and child!
