The weather outside may be frightful, but cozy socks are mighty delightful. Heck, the right pair makes us feel like we’re practically sitting in front of a fire with a cup of hot cocoa and a good book. Socks have the reputation of being a bit of a snoozefest, but the times are a changin’. We’ve found 15 colorful pairs that’ll knock your socks off… figuratively speaking. Your feet will definitely want to keep each and every one of these socks on.
1. Cozy Nepali Socks ($24): A pair of knee-high socks? Count us in. Especially with a pattern like this from Free People. Did we mention you can get them in two colors? Sold.
2. Anonymous Ism Crew Socks ($46): We’re totally digging the ombre-esque striped detailing of this pair. They are the perfect everyday sock and come in four different colors.
3. Christmas Wool Socks ($28): Scandinavian pride right here. Handmade from 100 percent wool, your feet will stay warm and look super stylish. All at the same time.
4. Burnt Orange Boot Socks ($18): The button and lace detailing at the top — be still our heart. These were meant to be paired with your favorite boots for a day of errands or a casual brunch with your BFFs.
5. Night Kap Slipper Sock ($28): If your go-to sweater and your comfiest socks made a baby together, this would be the result. Forget the errands we mentioned above. These pom pom wonders are just begging to be worn for the perfect day IN.

10. Knee-High Cozy Socks ($4): The definition of cozy socks: knee-high, fuzzy and covered in polka dots. You’ll have to decide between eight colors. Good luck.
11. Tonal Scrunch Over-The-Knee Sock ($14): Taking knee-high to new heights, we are obsessed with the pointelle pattern. The au naturale color blocking at the top doesn’t hurt either.
