One of our favourite things about the cold weather (aside from the fact that Christmas is coming) is winter socks. Sure, new boots are cool and there's nothing as stylish as a chic scarf but socks? They keep you toasty warm and there's nothing as cozy as when you're cuddled up under a blanket (preferably with someone you love), drinking hot chocolate and wearing your favourite Christmas socks.

Unfortunately, not all of these socks are exactly "cool" to wear to work because of their extra-cheery patterns (snowman socks, anyone?).

So, if you want to keep your feet warm without looking as if you're Santa's second-in-command, we found 20 stylish winter socks that won't embarrass you when you step outside your home.
