Best Bet: Sock Hop


Now that boot weather is in full swing, socks need to be higher and heavier to keep feet warm and dry. Gap’s new knee-high versions are made from a soft, ribbed knit that covers the calf and stays comfortably in place thanks to added stretch. The socks, which come in four marled shades, get an added hit of color from their bright, striped trims. Along with their good looks and total comfort, these sturdy knee-highs will withstand several spin cycles, a good thing because we plan to wear them all winter long.

Marled knee-high socks, $9.50 at Gap, 680 Fifth Ave., nr. 54th St.; 212-977-7023 or
