    Best budget winter dress socks

    So, in short, I hate my feet being cold. I work in an office where I can wear pretty much whatever I want (people dress ranging from jeans and a tee to business casual to suits, mainly depending on if they have meetings or not) , but I tend to stick to a more put together business casual. I'm looking forward to dressing for the colder temperatures...except for my feet. It seems like my feet are always cold, regardless of shoe choice, and I think it's largely due to my socks holding any and all moisture right next to my feet. So, I'm wondering if you guys have any input on reasonably priced dress(ier) socks, preferably in mildly interesting colors/patterns (meaning not just solid blue/black/grey). Thanks!

    How about a floor heater under your desk?

    If solid colors are fine with you land's end has some pretty nice wool/wool blend socks that get pretty cheap. The color selection varies, however I've found a decent selection over time (Blues, red, brown, yellow, greens, gray + the classics).

    Sadly, not an option. No one can have things like this because the electrical grid couldn't handle everyone having a fan or a heater or a whatever plugged in.

    Check out Uniqlo. I found some awesome ones last time I was in store. Lots of patterns but I got ones that had reindeer and a fair isle thing going on.

    There are always these:

    I don't have any, but from reviews I've read I think the key is to wear thin dress socks so the heat transfers directly to your feet.

    I wear Darn Tough Socks all year round, and I live in a 4 season climate (DC).

    Do you buy their lighter weight socks for the summer or are you wearing their heavy socks year around?

    I have lighter weight DTS for the summer. No shows for when I go very casual, and thinner crews for everything else.
