Summer officially began last week and although we know some of you prefer to totally eschew socks in the warm months, this summer we’ve got some skimpy little footies to line your shoes and some fabulous openwork styles to add a little more coverage even when you’re wearing less for the weather.
Tabbisocks rocked our, um, socks this summer with a delightful batch of no-show footies. Most of them have a soft, squishy pad under the ball of the foot, to add a little more cushion and care. We love this feature, because a lot of dress shoes and sandals don’t have much cushion! If you love these socks, get them while you can, because we’ve found Tabbisocks treats a lot of their styles seasonally and we might not have these into the colder months!
Footie socks are pretty sweet when the sun starts beating down. They’re a protective layer between you and your shoes, absorbing sweat and helping prevent blisters. A couple of sportier footie options (all of which will show more over your shoes than the Tabbisocks no-shows) are the Bamboo No Show 3-Packs, the Lightweight Running No-Show Toe Socks and the pedicure-perfect Bella Half Toe No Shows with Grip.
But what if you would like to still cover your legs a little, even while wearing shorts? Our Openwork category to the rescue! More than just fishnet and lace, openwork comes in a wonderful array of variations to suit your style and shows a bit more skin than regular lightweight styles.
What is (I think) pretty fun about our Openwork category is that it lets me link you directly to the scrumptious Foot Traffic “texture” styles. Named after fancy, famous cities, they’re Dreamer and customer favourites when it comes to layering! And I could not just pick a couple to show you, so here are all of them!
If you do keep on wearing socks in the summer months (and goodness knows, we do!), what is your game plan? Lightweight legcoverage or just enough fabric to keep your feet from becoming one with your shoes?

I cannot even believe we’re at the halfway point of the year. Time passes quickly when your socks are fun! June’s flower and birthstone are a great team—roses and pearls! The constellation for most of the month is Gemini, a perfect pairing for socks!
June’s actually got three birthstones associated with it, Alexandrite, Moonstone and Pearls. Both Alexandrite and Moonstone possess shifting colours that are impossible to capture in sock form, so I’ve made little gradients for you.
Alexandrite shifts from reddish to greenish.
Moonstones are pearlescent, glowing rainbows of green and blue, with purple and yellow on the edges. I actually super can’t convey the deepness of their colours and beauty, not even in socks.
Pearls are a little easier, with their beautiful, soft shades of white. Our O Lovelies in Pearl are a gimme as far as that gemstone is concerned! For the rest of your strand of socks, we’ve got lots of solid white with subtle shimmer and satin texture to dress up your look.
Clockwise from top: Micromesh Lace Ruffle Tanga Short, Opaque Stockings with Ruffle and Bow, Microfiber Chenille Arm Warmers, Simply Adjustable Sock Garters, Furry Lurex Leg Warmers, Alpaca Beehive Knit Long Arm Warmers.
But have you seen black pearls? They’re probably my favourite and they’ve got hints of blue and purple in them.
The lovely companion flower to pearls is the rose and we’ve got socks with that distinctive bloom emblazoned,
And there are shades of red and pink called “rose” that range the spectrum.
Now Gemini, the twins, is almost too easy to symbolise with socks. So let’s pair these pairs with two packs. Each of these styles come in sets of two, for you to mix and match or have a spare.
Pretty pearls, romantic roses and double your money with Gemini. We’re halfway through the year with Summer Solstice to prove it on the 21st!

When most people think of Oregon, they think of rain; and with good reason. Portland alone gets an average of around 37 inches of rain a year, and often times it feels like we should start gathering animals two by two. There advantage to all the rain is when the sun comes out, Oregon turns into a green paradise. So, the latest news is… SUNSHINE!!!
One of our favorite parts of the warm weather is new shorties, like these sweet Sweet Marcel anklets from last summer!!!
We here at Sock Dreams are suckers for a little shorty sock and luckily Tabbisocks has already starting sending us the most adorable socks ever.
Stay tuned for new styles coming just in time for Spring and Summer.
