How to wear thigh-high socks this winter
Posted by SOCKSHOP
Long socks have been in fashion since the 70s, when knee highs were ultra chic when paired with a short skirt – and they have remained in circulation ever since, making regular appearances on catwalks and on celebs. Thigh-high socks, however, have had a lower-key existence – unfairly in our book. After all, they’re warm, ultra chic, they can be dressed up or down, and they are a great alternative to tights for those who dislike them. Find out how to wear thigh high socks below:
With long boots
Long socks look great with a couple of inches poking out over the top of boots – whether you opt for chunky biker boots, riding boots or heels, grab yourself a pair of thigh high socks in either the same colour as your boots or in a contrast tone to give a pop of colour, and pair with shorts or a skirt for a casual look.
If you think cooler temperatures means you have to switch to long trousers and skirts, think again. There is nothing cooler (and warmer!) than a pair of ripped denim shorts or a summery floral dress paired with thigh high socks. Wear with trainers, pumps or calf-length boots for an autumnal trip to a museum or walk through the trees.
When thinking about how to wear thigh high socks, you don’t necessarily have to use them an alternative to tights – on the contrary, you can wear them as an addition. Layering is a great look, and wearing thick cable knit socks over some sheer tights of the same colour, perhaps with a pair of boots, can look fabulous.
