Here's the thing about fashion's latest trend, sheer socks: these are 100% a want item, not a need item. Practically speaking, there is no real use for sheer socks. That said, we still want them because these could potentially look very cool with the right shoes.

Sheer socks are ultra-light mesh socks, often decorated with seams, studs, or polka dots. Think of them more as accessories than a necessary footwear item. We're going to leave this one in your hands, readers: what do you think?
