As we wait in the limbo between wool sock weather and sandal-worthy sunshine, it's the perfect opportunity to slip into some stylish and sassy sneakers.

In an array of bright colors and fun prints, sneakers have deviated from the bland footwear you'd only wear for walking around amusement parks and taken a turn for everyday awesomeness without sacrificing comfort.

A pair of sneaks like these looks super cute with rolled up skinny jeans, cropped pants or bermuda shorts, but what about socks? Instead of going without (because they most often look best that way) and ending up with swamp foot, hook yourself up with a pair that's meant to stay hidden, like these.

They come in different styles and colors, but my advice is to look for a pair with a gripping strip on the heel. It's usually a silicone-like tacky strip that creates friction and prevents your tiny sock from slipping off as you walk.
