After what seems like months of warm(ish) weather, it would seem winter is finally rearing its frost-bitten head.
This can only mean one thing: it’s time to get your mitts on all of the comfy clothes. And what better place to start than with your feet (which, let’s face it, get a bit of a beating in winter)?
Whether you’re in need of some thick cotton socks to pad out your boots or you’re after a pair of fluffies to gift a friend or family member, there’s something for everyone right here. You are most welcome.
Pile-lined thick socks, H&M, £8.99
These socks come with a thick pile lining (made from polyester, not fur) to keep your tootsies super warm. They’re mid-calf length and feature a delightful jacquard pattern, with a grey and pink colour scheme. If you fancy something a bit brighter, there’s also a bold red version.
Luxe grey chenille socks, Oliver Bonas, £9.50
You can always rely on Oliver Bonas to make a product that you actually want. These luxurious chenille socks are ultra soft and can be worn long (mid-way up your calf) or ruched up around the ankles. They come in one size, fitting a UK shoe size 4-7. Quite frankly, a glorious stocking filler.
All About The Penguins
Penguin cosy socks two-pack, ASOS, £10
If you like to go bold on the old sock front, look no further than these penguin-themed beauties. The two-pack features a very extra print and then a lesser out there pair, with teal diamonds and orange stripes. Delightful.
