I love doing these colour wheels, they’re such a great way to dive right into the socks of the season!
Well, not the socks, but the fingerless gloves! Arm warmers don’t quite cut it in cold temperatures, but fingerless gloves like the Acrylic Fingerless Shorties are a great way to keep those fingers warm and still stylish and free to pick up things without fumbling.

Socks after the jump! And there are some totally scrumptious ones too.
And there’s few socks more perfect for winter than the New Zealand Bedsocks from Outer Gear. In solids, stripes, dots and hearts, there’s something for everybody who wants one of the cosiest bed socks we carry! And they even come with tread bottoms, for a little security with your softness.

Now, if you want total winter wonderful, I’m going to have to say that the Gregorio Wool Bootsocks are going to be your best bet. Better for bigger feet (Label says they fit men’s shoe size 8-13. We find they fit down to US women’s shoe 8.5 comfortably, just a little loose at the toes), they’re supremely cushy and cozy at 38% virgin wool, with a luxurious touch of cashmere. These guys totally make me sad that I can’t wear wool.
We just got our shots of the new colours up and there is a real rainbow of shades and neutrals in these scrumptious socks! I took some quick snaps to spin together some rainbows for you that showed their gorgeous texture. The Gregorio colours are rich and cool, perfect for winter.
And their neutrals and browns are just as luxe and lovely.
So, what colours do you use to keep warm as it begins to get frosty out?
5 soxy thoughts:
thanks for reviewing the gregorio – ive wondered heavily on these since their gorgeous colors put me in mind of the beloved OMarleds.
@Raubynn, I really am sad that I can’t wear these (well, I could over tights, I guess), they’re so squishy and wonderful. And since they’re solidly midcalves I could wear them scrunched down too. I think they’re something all my friends who can wear wool may be getting this holiday! The Teal especially have a subtle marl that I love.
Gorgeous photos! I don’t usually wear fingerless gloves but now I am totally tempted to get one in each color!!!
Quick question. If I want to match the rust gloves with socks would I be better off with the O Basics in Rust or with the Diamond Ribs in Burnt Orange. There’s also the added complication that I will likely try to turn them into leg warmers but cutting the feet off… What do you guys think?
@Sena—Fingerless gloves are such a must-have for me, my hands get so cold! They’re totally a great layer for dealing with freezing outdoors and cozy indoors.
For matching, I’d say the best overall match are the O Rayons in Paprika, but between the Diamond Ribs and the O Basics, then the O Basics in Rust.
