The 8 Best Women’s Socks That Provide a Stylish Finishing Touch to Your Spring Style

All products and services featured are independently chosen by editors. However, Footwear News may receive a commission on orders placed through its retail links, and the retailer may receive certain auditable data for accounting purposes.

Never underestimate the power of a good sock. While they may be an afterthought among your high-style accessories or performance gear, socks pose an opportunity to largely impact foot support, the fit of a shoe, or an outfit’s overall style appeal. With so many options and styles to choose from, the FN Shop editors have highlighted our top 8, standout pairs that deliver on all-day comfort.

The best socks for women function as a basic, but are anything but, as they range in supportive and stylish iterations, from moisture-wicking fabrications to trendy knee-high socks, and everything in between. Whether it’s an adidas sock that’s optimized for athletic performance, or a Nike gym sock that’s reimagined as an bold accessory at Fashion Week, socks take on a myriad of functions, though they should always be durable, comfortable, and bring value to your footwear rotation.

An artfully styled sock can bring unexpected intrigue to even the most bold shoe choice, and serve as a statement on its own for casual and formal occasions. Take the age-old debate over socks and sandals for example — a playful formula to elevate a daily shoe while upping the comfort factor. Or, look to dress shoes, like Mary Jane shoes, kitten heels, loafers, or ballet flats, which may otherwise cause painful pinching and blisters over the course of long days on your feet, if not for a soft layer of stretchy cotton that allows space to play with color and texture all the same.

Below, shop our sock recommendations to revamp your wardrobe basics, from stylish designs, supportive features, innovative comfort solutions, and more.

Hanes Crew Socks are an Amazon top-seller and longtime cult-favorite for their endlessly versatile design.

A cushioned foot bottom brings added comfort to any shoe choice, while reinforced heels and toes ensure durability for daily wear.

What testers say: “I absolutely love these socks. I am sensitive to the feel of clothing, including socks, and it’s taken some time to find socks that I like. These socks are soft, warm, and comfortable. The cuff is close-fitting but not too tight. The socks stay in place on my feet, and they are definitely not too thin. If anything, they are a bit thick, but this is nice for colder weather and also if you have shoes that are a little big. Five stars.”
