The fall and winter seasons mean different things to different people. Some get extra excited about eggnog, holiday treats, and pumpkin spice lattes, while others love to see the different festive displays. Some people turn to family gatherings where warm memories and bright futures bring people together, and some blow off steam and cut loose at parties with co-workers and friends. But at Foot Traffic, we get most excited about… socks.
Yes, socks! That’s right—well, socks, and legwear in general. When the fall and winter fashion socks come in, we’re over the (harvest) moon. That’s because socks, leggings, tights, stockings, and leg warmers are just as crucial to any cold-weather fashion wardrobe as coats, hats, sweaters, and scarves. Not only do socks, leggings, and tights keep your tootsies warm and your legs comfy when the temperature drops, they’re also an ideal way for you to express your fall and winter style.
Often the new fall and winter clothing is earth-toned, or features subtle pieces evoking the season: rich purples, warm browns, cool blacks and grays, and dark blues. For color addicts like us, that’s a fine place to start… but we’re always eager to bring the spectacle of fall leaves to our wardrobes, along with the bright colors of Christmas, the warm lights of Hanukah, and the glittery cheer of the new year. And socks, leggings, tights, stockings, and leg warmers are the perfect way to do that!
No matter who you are, or where you work, legwear is a perfect way to bring a little excitement to your wardrobe. Even the most conservative office dress codes allow for tights, so why not pick up some patterned goodies for yourself and your friends in the office this holiday season? Tights, leggings, and socks are great holiday gifts or stocking stuffers for anyone on your Santa list. And as they’re such an economical (but thoughtful) gift, you barely even have to check it twice! Really, this time of year everyone loves fleecy leggings that keep the chill at bay, fun over-the-knee socks with cats or foxes that peek over the top of the season’s cute boots, sparkly tights that dress up any little black dress, and novelty socks featuring Santa kitties, snowmen, gingerbread men, “ugly sweaters,” and more to wear on Christmas morning!

Whether you’re looking to jazz up your own wardrobe or help your friends get in the holiday spirit, we have the perfect options for you.
