Usually relegated to the realm of slutty schoolgirl Halloween costumes, with the help of up-and-coming style icons like Rihanna, Taylor Swift, and Victoria Beckham, knee high, and even thigh high, socks are on the forefront of our fashion psyche. Wear them with a mini dress and pumps or sticking out of your favorite boots. But whatever you do, leave the pleated skirt at home–you’re not on Gossip Girl.
For the more traditional of you, we suggest J.Crew’s stretchy nylon socks in gray or these semi-sheer stockings from awesome hosiery brand, Falke; both are super comfortable and look cute with heels or boots.
We can’t help but like American Apparel’s zig zag rendition of the knee high. For Beckham’s look, or simply for a comfy liner underneath your over the knee boots, try a pair of merino wool thigh highs also from J.Crew.
