Where to Buy Colourful & Cute Socks

I’ve always had a massive appreciation for cute socks, probably due to the English tradition of socks for every gifting occasion, maybe it’s because they’re an affordable way to treat yourself or update your outfit? I used to be all about the multi-buy offers in the big high street chain stores, but over the past few years I’ve discovered a pretty long list of brilliant indie and smaller brands to support in the world of socks! So, whether you’re looking to sock shop for yourself or a gift, I hope you’ll find this guide useful in discovering something new.

Just this month, Katie announced the launch of her first sock collection and it’s absolutely spot on.

Katie has a bricks and mortar shop in Alfreson, UK and you can also shop her entire range on Etsy.
