Sock it to me, also.

Second sock question in under an hour! This one is about ladies' socks though.

I realized pretty recently that I don't know how to choose socks. All I know is that I need something between my foot and my shoe, and it seems ridiculous to spend money on socks.
So here are my problems:
1. I wear a size 9.5US/41UK. All the socks that I have bought lately that say they fit up to a size 11 foot have seemed too small (they press my toes uncomfortably). Aside from buying mens' socks, is there a reliable way to buy socks that actually fit and are comfortable?
2. I've mostly been buying low-cut no-show thin socks, but a) they're not very warm, and next winter I'd like my feet to be warmer; and b) they're probably very unfashionable to wear with pants and clogs. And I'm pretty much always wearing pants and clogs.
Help me become sock-savvy please! What do I need, in terms of both size and style?
