Sarah Jessica Parker has designed her own shoes, handbags and even little black dresses for her SJP Collection, but there’s one item of clothing she can’t help but steal from her husband Matthew Broderick’s closet: his socks!

The Divorce star, who celebrated her 20th wedding anniversary to Broderick last year, proclaimed the love she has for her husband’s cozy knee-high socks with a post on Instagram.

“Sometimes my husband’s socks are just better,” Parker captioned the photo, which shows her lower half clad in bright purple leggings and a pair of orange-and-blue men’s socks, with a cast-aside pair of purple pumps (SJP by Sarah Jessica Parker brand, presumably) on the floor next to her.

Of course, Parker is just confirming what many of us already know: There’s no better way to get warm on a chilly day than by borrowing items straight our of a dude’s sock drawer. With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, there’s no better time to stock up on some stylish socks to give your guy (and then steal). Check out some of our favorite picks below.
