There’s nothing that compares to sitting in front of a roaring fire on a cold winter day — even if the fire’s an electric one. So for those planning to stay warm in a plush robe and flannel pajamas, don’t forget a pair of cozy socks.
These fluffy footnotes do double duty as slippers, with many sporting slip-resistant pods on the soles for traction on bare floors. And, unlike most traditional at-home footwear, these socks can easily be washed.
Depending on the temperature, there’s a range of silhouettes — among them ankle versions with novelty faux fur collars from Walmart and mid-calf styles from Free People and The Original Muk Luks — for added warmth.
While lounging around, treat yourself to socks from Cabeau, infused with a range of scents that include peppermint, aloe or lavender. Bed, Bath & Beyond does its version with aloe vera and vitamin E.
For those who prefer a more traditional slipper effect, iconic slipper brand Acorn slouch boot sock features a soft non-skid sole that’s suitable for a run to the mailbox.
