Socks may be one of my favorite accessories for a fall day, because they complete an outfit all the way down to your toes. And if you’re a Harry Potter fan, you know how important socks are – they can literally free someone. As an homage to Dobby, here are 12 Harry Potter socks for chilly day.
Socks are often underestimated. After all, everyone waxes poetic about infinity scarves and vests and cozy mittens, but if your feet aren’t warm, you will be seriously uncomfortable. Dumbledore knew that it was important not to underestimate the importance of a great pair of socks — after all, it was what he (jokingly) told Harry that he saw himself holding when gazing into the Mirror of Erised. There may be a lot of other things you’d see when looking in that mirror, but you have to admit that a great pair of socks is a small joy.
Summer is great, with the opportunity for pedicures and strappy sandals, but nothing says “autumn” like a great pair of knee socks. For some reason, the characters in Harry Potter were mildly obsessed with this form of footwear, and if you’re a Harry Potter fan, you’ll also be obsessed with the following pairs of Potter-inspired socks.
Skip the crest and go straight for the Hogwarts name with these stripe-top socks. No matter your house, these are the perfect way to remind everyone that you will always, always be waiting for your owl.
Sometimes the minimalist look is the best, and all you need to remind everyone of Harry Potter is a lightning bolt scar and a pair of glasses. Of course, the Gryffindor color scheme helps out a bit, too.
If you’re not a Gryffindor, find some great Ravenclaw socks (or Slytherin, or Hufflepuff) from ThinkGeek. These feature Ravenclawcolors and a bird crest, so you can rep your house while seeking wit beyond measure.
What more could you ask for, than a pair of socks patterned with the covers of the greatest book series ever? If you’re wondering, these are the thick pair of socks that Dumbledore saw himself holding in the mirror of Erised.
Manage some mischief in these Marauder-inspired ankle socks, complete with the deathly hallows and the quote, “I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.” Sirius would definitely get a kick out of these.
You’ll never miss the Hogwarts Express, as long as you’re wearing these Platform 9 3/4 knee highs. They will accompany you through the barrier while you take it at a bit of a run (because you’re nervous).
