Every year we're delighted by the aquatic whimsy of Mermay! Don't worry, you won't have to give up your voice to a sea witch to dip your toes into some Mermaidcore styles!

At the top of our list are our own Longer Extraordinary Mermaid Dip Dye Thigh High Socks. Made by Sock Dreams in the USA and hand dyed by Tie Dye Eric right here in Portland, these feature an eye-catching combination of color, pattern and texture! Because they're hand dyed, they can be difficult to keep in stock, so grab them when you have the chance! If you missed your favorite colorway, you can always sign up to be notified when they're back in stock from the product page.

Another tie dye variation of this style is the Tie Dye Pastel Carnival Thigh High! The patterning on this version is reminiscent of the way light dances across the surface of water -- perfect for a mermaid theme!

If you'd rather keep things classic, you can also enjoy the scale-like texture of our Longer Extraordinary Diamond Wave Thigh Highs, which feature solid colors. We also carry an organic version, which comes in an emerald colorway which practically screams "mermaid!"

For an airier look, try one of these net options! Fishnet is already thematic, but these styles are particularly scale-like. Perfect for a summer goth mermaid look.
