During the chilly season, we’re less than enthused to cast aside ankle-baring favorites like pumps, loafers and flats (our boot fixation notwithstanding). However, an affordable fashion-girl hack has become our go-to solution: fishnet socks.

A pair will typically only set you back $10 or less—can’t beat that for a little fashion-forward experimentation! From classic to patterned to frilled, here, seven sets to try now.
