6 Socks for Spring

Whether they are glimpsed at the tops of your ankle boots, layered over tights, warming up your sandals, or peeking out your pant leg, socks are the perfect way to refresh your leg wear wardrobe this spring.

These J.Crew camouflage socks ($16.50) are just the right mix of casual and fun and a great way to add a trendy pattern this spring.

Paul Smith from Gravity Pope

Ever dread going to a shoes-off party? Wear these trompe l’oeil numbers by Paul Smith from Gravity Pope ($30), and you’ll feel sufficiently shod.

Robert Graham from Harry Rosen

If you like a little pattern mixing, then try these Robert Graham socks from Harry Rosen ($30). This pair has a great mix of stripes and houndstooth in a modern colourway.

Mr. Gray from Leo Boutique

Mr. Gray socks (by Vancouver-based boutique, Roden Gray) are made in Japan with vintage machines. These Navajo-patterned, thick-knit socks from Leo Boutique ($39) are perfect to wear in the last days of winter.

Bleu Foret from Hudson’s Bay

If cotton isn’t high-end enough for you, then try these 100%-silk ankle socks by Bleu Foret from Hudson’s Bay ($24). Silk is the perfect transitional fibre for spring – just don’t wear them with your black boots.

Obey from Little Burgundy

Socks can be subversive too. What at first glance looks like a perfectly feminine floral is really a cultural statement sock from Little Burgundy ($16.60) by street artist Shepard Fairey and his Obey line of counter-culture clothing.
