In this type of weather warm socks are a necessity. These are quite comfy and soft. Growing up I did not like the knee high socks that my mom enjoyed wearing, I thought they were restrictive and I felt like my ankles were choking. Yeah, I know that’s weird. Anyway, when I moved to Japan and discovered what “seasons” were, I decided I really liked knee high socks. Plus, there a lot that have stripes and I’m a huge fan of stripes. Just look at my closet (and my drawer full of striped knee high sock).
