    Promising review: "These fuzzy socks are soft and comfortable. They fit well. I also like it that the elastic on the top of the socks is not tight. This greatly adds to the comfort of the socks. The colors are bright and pretty and do not run in the wash. I love these warm fuzzy socks. I even ordered some for my son and my husband." —Anne M. Tranquillo

    Promising review: "Guys, I’m obsessed with these colorful socks! I’ve now bought three sets because of it. My job is physically demanding and because of that I sweat my butt off and my feet are no exemption. These socks are made of a very breathable material and since I’ve been wearing these my feet haven’t been sweating as badly. (I have a HUGE drawer stuffed with socks...but I will do laundry to make sure I have a pair of these.) These would be perfect for most flats as well! 1,000% recommend!" —Lisa

    Get them from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in two tie-dye options).

    4. A pair of Sock It To Me knee-high socks covered in dinosaurs wearing rollerskates or a bunch of taco-saurs (don't question it) – because I cannot imagine a wrong time to wear either of these.

    I *cannot* say enough good things about these socks. I mean, just LOOK at how cute these are! They also have heel grips and feel like actual hugs for your feet. My only suggestion would be to order one size up to avoid any tight-fitting elastic!

    Get it from MeUndies for $14 (available in sizes S–XL).

    How about some colorful furniture and decor to match those new socks? 👀

    6. An eight-pack of lightweight crew socks to soothe any snack and/or candy lover's ~sole~. What's *really* up for debate is which one is the superior snack? (On that note, these would be really great conversation starters at parties.)

    Promising review: "I don't have to stretch them out and they still cover the very lowest part of my ankle. They are no-show when you're wearing shoes, which I can come confirm is true. They are not extremely thin at all! They are the perfect level of thinness/thickness. They are warm enough to keep my feet toasty on a cold night but also comfortable enough to wear under any pair of tennis shoes or even dress shoes. Did I mention they are very soft?! And also very cute! I will definitely be ordering another pack or two because that an awesome deal for 20 pairs or quality socks!" —Mandee Land

    Get them from Amazon for $18.99 (available in 44 patterns).

    8. Or some Foot Traffic colorful socks because no sock collection is complete without a good ol' pair of toe socks. I said what I said.

    Get them from Amazon for $11 (available in seven colors).

    Promising review: "LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Solmate socks. When I wear them I get the best compliments. Not only are they cute, they are also warm and cozy and great for the winter or anytime really. It had been a few years since I purchased a pair, and the material had changed ever so slightly. With my most recent purchase of Solmate socks, I could tell the material is super stretchy and much more comfortable than past pairs. They last for a much longer period of time than the old ones. I still have my old ones, they last forever! But the newer stretchy material is my favorite and much more comfy." —Alya Christensen

    Get them from Amazon for $23.95 (available in sizes S–XL and 28 colors).

    If you love cozy things, you deserve to add some fuzzy socks to your cart, too.

    11. A chromatic four-pack of knee-high compression socks if settling for regular compression socks sounds like a total snooze fest. These will allow your personality to shine through without compromising on quality.

    Promising review: "Ordered these after I started my first-ever hospital job. I didn't know what a difference socks could make in a 12-hour shift. After all, they're just...socks, right? Oh, but what a fool I was. I won't say that they completely did away with my feet's fatigue, but they did a heck of a lot to curb it. I went from staggering to my car in near defeat to actually WALKING to it...and for what they cost; I think that's a fantastic value. I have already recommended these bad boys to a coworker of mine, and I will probably recommend them again in the future. A must-have for CNAs." —Kaitlyn

    Get them from Amazon for $11.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and 23 colors).

    12. A pack of colorful no-show socks that'll make you feel like you're walking around with the *best* secret all day – that is, until your friend asks you to take your shoes off at the door...that's when the compliments start flowing in.

    Promising review: "These socks are wonderful. My calves and ankles get cold at night regardless of how many blankets I pile on them. I bought one pair of these socks on a lark when I saw how long they were. They really do go over your knees and they keep my legs wonderfully warm at night without feeling restrictive. They're soft and cute, too. I've order several more pairs." —G.L. Martin

    Promising review: "I am very happy with these colorful socks. I’m kind of picky about socks, but these fit the criteria for what I wanted perfectly. They are very comfortable, not too thin or thick, and the colors are true to the pictures. I like that they’re not too thick, because when socks are too thick and you roll them down at the top, they often feel too tight and make your ankles kind of itchy/tingly because they cut off the circulation. These don’t do that at all, they are perfect!" —Alex Pinney

    Get the 12-pack from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in sizes S–XL).

    Promising review: "I love my new Blue Q socks. They are thin and more stretchy so more comfortable for those with bigger calves. The print is on the outside of both socks. The stripes are colorful and fun! I love a sock that makes me smile when I look down...especially one I can wear to express myself even if no one sees and only for me." —Amazon Customer

    Get them from Amazon for $13.99.

    20. A three-pack of Maye-Williams FlexForce socks made of breathable mesh if you're looking for some mostly solid but bright colors to add to your rotation.
