Photo print socks!

In case y’all missed the memo, digitally-printed clothes are in. Christopher Kane started it all with his ultra-realistic galaxy print back in 2011 and since then, it’s been a non-stop free-for-all covering everything we own in whatever crazy photos of nature/food/animals we can find. So far, we’ve seen everything from dresses decked out in clouds to pants covered in flowers to sweaters smothered in French fries, but this spring we’ve decided to take on one area of our ensemble that is often overlooked–the socks. Now, we know what you’re thinking, “Who cares about socks?” Well, first off, we do–especially right now! This spring is ALL about wearing ankle socks with shoes (we’re talking pointy heels, platform wedges, stacked booties, EVERYTHING) to spice up our wardrobe. Don’t believe us? Everyone from the editors at Elle to Rihanna to the fashion icons at Nasty Gal have been behind this trend, so we’re absolutely-mega-sure this is something that’s going to stick.
Depending on how out-there you want to get, there’s a whole plethora of options to choose from, but we picked out 8 designs that we’re personally obsessed with. Starting clockwise from the top left, we loved this set of floral socks for the girly-girls ($8), kitty collage socks for the cat ladies ($8), and cash-covered socks for the money-hungry ($8). ’90s kids will die over the Troll doll set ($8), while meat lovers might opt for the super stacked hamburger socks ($4). We’re OBSESSED with this llama set ($4) that makes a full face when you put them together and the ice cream ankle socks ($6) that’ll be perfect when summer officially rolls around. Finally, if you’re into something a little darker, we suggest the X-ray set ($4) to add a Halloween-y touch to any ensemble. So, what do y’all think–are you going to snatch up some photo print socks this spring? Let us know in the comments below!
