How to wear knee high socks alone or w/ boots, leggings & tights

A trend I'm really loving right now is knee high socks. You can wear them in so many way and still wear your cute short dresses and skirts and stay relatively warm for the most part. You can even wear them with shorts, but it's a little trickier to do imo.

These socks would look great w/ boots that come up to the calf or with ankle boots.



I love these tights. You could wear these alone with knee high boots or with knee socks and boots that are just a little shorter that the socks so some of the sock will show. If you wear patterned tights or leggings, I think it's best to go with a solid color sock so that the look ins't too busy. The same goes for the outfit you wear with the patterned legging/tights. You don't want the two things to compete w/ each other and having one piece stand out (the tights in this case) just looks a lot better. ( You can find these tights below and the 2 socks above at Payless)

Here are some inspirational pictures to get you started.
 I love the one on the left, this picture shoes how you can wear tights/stockings w/ knee socks.

Keep in mind that boots aren't the only thing you can wear these socks with. They look great with flats or penny loafer type shoes and even heels. Although, socks with heels are my least favorite way to wear them b/c I don't think they look that great on me.



This one shows how she wore skinny jeans with knee socks and knee high boots. Now you can stay warm and still look sexy ^-^


What do you guys think of these looks, do you wear knee socks? What's your favorite way to wear them?

I'm really liking this new trend too. It brings me back to the early 90s and Clueless, when Cher and Dion wore them in the movie. But now it's a bit edgier, with most of them being black =) Looks better, and I want to try this trend.

I've been admiring (from afar) the knee-high socks trend for a while now, and I got so excited over the week-end when I realized that I actually own a pair of them! I was planning on wearing them over some thicker tights before it gets too cold. All these looks are giving me great inspiration!

First of all, these aren't knee-hi socks, they're what's called "over-the-knee" socks. I love over-the-knee socks, but can never find them anywhere.
Knee-hi socks come just below the knee. I see them everywhere but don't know how to wear them without making my knees look fat. I was hoping to get some ideas from your blog about how to wear knee-hi socks and look sexy doing it. Any advice?
