The most cost-effective way to look fashionable this year is by embracing the wonders of knee-high socks, according to a fashion blogger in the US.
Anne Bratskeir of Newsday says the legwear provides people with a great accessory at a budget price, keeping legs warm and purses heavier.
The writer noted the current trend found in famous celebrities who have adopted the fashion, such as Avril Lavigne, Gwen Stefani and Fergie of the Black Eyed Peas.
Ms Bratskeir interviewed stockings
specialist Alison Hessert of Hue legwear, who attributed the style to the "Gossip Girl trend".
She continued: "It's preppy chic with edge, a little good girl and a little bad girl, too."
Last week, Josefina Loza of the Omaha World-Herald said that legs were definitely in fashion this season, with knee-high socks
being one of many things one can wear on their legs.
