This season, socks can be the ideal way to winterize your favourite skirts, dresses or shorts. Over the knee socks are just as good casual as they are dressy. Perfect with your favourite boots and shorts, skirts or baggy dresses or even more perfect when the night comes with towering heels and fitted dresses.
Here are some simple pointers to get the thigh high socks and knee high socks fashion trend right:
♥ Wear your knee-high or over-the-knee socks under tall boots, adding extra warmth and a little color flair to the top of your boot. It is okay for socks to stick up over the top rim of the boot, just make sure the color or pattern of your socks coordinates with the rest of your outfit.
♥ Wear knee-high and over-the-knee socks with short dresses, shorts, and skirts. However make sure your clothing doesn’t overpower the socks, creating a large cluster of fabric. The hem of your clothing piece should also not go below the middle of your thigh.
♥ Wear knee high and over-the-knee socks with heels or boots. Taller boots whether UGG style or leather look trendy with socks underneath. Closed toe heels or open-toe heels can be worn carefully, giving the trend a more polished and girly look.
♥ Don’t wear short or bulky socks. Bulky socks were in style in 2007 and styles seldom repeat themselves quickly. Go for tight-fitting socks.
♥ Try and experiment knee-high or over-the-knee socks with leggings. Leggings that are sheer and/or patterned can add warmth and a whole new look.
♥ Don’t go for the school-girl look!! Avoid pairing socks with plaid skirts :p
What do you think of this trend? I love it :) I picked up some woolen knit over the knee socks when I was in London so thought I’d share a quick OOTD of how I wore my over the knee socks yesterday :)
