One always associates socks especially high socks, with the very strict school one went to. This is because socks have been part of uniforms. In the last few years, however, socks have made their entry into the fashion world in a major way.
Socks are a simple way of spicing-up outfits and may seem easy to wear. However, wearing them without looking like a schoolgirl can be a little tough, especially for someone who has never tried it.
If you aren't sure of how to go about it, here are different ways to wear over-the- knee and thigh-high socks:
With Ankle Boots
This combination can be worn with just about anything. If they slip down, you may want to add a garter to the top to keep them secure.
With High Boots
One could opt for this classic duo for that extra oomph. Make sure your socks match your boots. For something more statement-making, you may try something like patterned or bright socks.
To look super spunky, wear your knee socks with a crop top, skirt and stiletto heels.
With an Oversized Sweater and a Short Leather Skirt
Despite having a schoolgirl feel to it, this combination could actually turn out to be an appropriate option.
If you have been waiting all winter and couldn't help but wear your shorts, this is perfect. Pair your knee or thigh-high socks with shorts and sneakers or boots.
With a Lightweight Dress
For a sweet country look, wear a lighweight dress with white thigh-high socks. To complete the look, wear lace-up suede brown high boots.
With Sheer Tights
Wear this combination with a tighter skirt, loose top and ankle boots. The sheer tights will give your legs extra warmth.
With a Tennis Skirt
You could try pairing your knee-high socks with a white pleated tennis skirt, a polo and high-heeled sneakers for a sporty look.
With a Romper
Pair a printed romper with black thigh-high socks and black platform shoes for a vibrant look.
With a Floral Dress
Here is a boho-inspired outfit idea. Wear a white floral dress with a pair of black thigh-high socks and lace-up boots.
