17 Fancy Socks To Jazz Up Your Spring Shoes

So we can start wearing sandals now

We don’t know about you, but we’re getting pretty pumped for spring. So much so that we’re extra antsy to bust out all of our spring wardrobe newness, chilly temperature or not.

Even though it’s not quite mule and sandal season just yet, it's nothing that a fancy sock can’t fix. The once-considered-nerdy socks-with-sandals look is currently all the rage, something made apparent on the Spring 2018 runways. Just check out Erdem’s sheer ankle socks, the delicately embellished pairs at Preen by Thornton Bregazzi, or Prada’s sporty, colorful knee-highs for proof. 

We rounded up the 17 must-have (and way more affordable) pairs—from floral embellished masterpieces to fun and artsy prints—to wear with all of the spring shoe styles you’ve been eyeing, stat. Try them with a peep-toe, a pool slide, or even your grandpa sneakers for an extra geek-chic look. The possibilities are endless.
