I looked at all the usual places the other day for womens socks (M&S, NEXT etc) all I could find were stars, teddies and very juvenile prints.

I saw some of these socks in one of our local independant stores lovely and soft socks

I buy mostly striped or solid colour socks. Boden, Seasalt, John Lewis and M&S.

I wear these socks Mine are in different colours, but they seem to just have greys now.

I do have other socks, but i can really feel the differencein comfort.

TK Maxx usually have some nice ones.

Sainsbury do some nice socks. I tend to get the black ones with a pattern on the soles (usually stripes or spots) so they can be matched up easily after washing.

I like the bamboo ones from boots. Black, browns, greys, blues, stripes, florals. They need a wash before use tho, as they dye your feet! shock but once they're past that stage they are really nice to wear. Seasalt ones are bamboo I think, I always fancy trying them and decide against it as I just cannot bring myself to pay the price for them!

Sock shop ones from Matalan they don't leave a sweaty ankle line either

Costco often have boxes of Pringles socks. Very comfy, don't shrink in the tumble drier.

First lot I had were stripey, but second lot do have flowers all over. Colours can be a bit bright too (makes no difference to me - usually wear boots).

Seasalt bamboo socks, love them.

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Fri 13-Feb-15 21:09:25

Topshop frilly ones.

I agree with pp on boots bamboo socks, lovely and soft and really keep their shape,

Pointlessfan Fri 13-Feb-15 22:29:46

My mum just bought me some lovely ones from Next. They are stripey in all different shades of grey. Nothing to do with the film as far as I know!

If your feet are on the bigger side, have a look at men's socks- mine are size 6.5 (so not enormous) and all my socks are from the men's range in M+S, loads of bright colours!

Tesco's. Not the multipacks, the single packs. There's a discount if you buy three I think. Always nice quality, comfortable, and they last well.

Teanbiscuitsallround Fri 13-Feb-15 22:40:44

I get mind from next. Last forever and decent patterns too!

applecatchers36 Fri 13-Feb-15 22:49:31

The M&S soft socks are lovely, super soft, cotton mix and warm

Another vote for Seasalt here. I'm evangelical about them. Never have I owned such lovely socks. They make me smile every morning. I need to get a life don't I?

I am the only member of the family who doesn't gave Joules bamboo socks, and I want some! DH and DS have them. They are brilliant quality, warm in winter but cool in summer, keep their shape, don't shrink or unravel in the dryer. Pricey, but wit for them to do 25% off.

TK Maxx do lots of good socks - my local one had Green Treat and Sock Shop Bamboo ones in, in stripes and plain colours.

I also got some great one with glittery toes from Matalan before Christmas.

What Pandas said - Pringles socks from Costco. In fact, I'm wearing a pair right now.

They keep their shape, don't wear out, and come in nice colours.
