Over 40 and still love knee-high socks? Not a problem
Deborah Boland and JoJami Tyler explained that while many people see it as stylish and sensible, it is not as fashionable as individuals believe and as such, they must be paired with certain outfits to ensure the wearer does not look old before their time.

The pair noted that knee-high socks look extremely wrong with jeans and ballet flat shoes, as this "delicate" combination can be overpowered with such legwear.

Regardless of what kind of trousers the woman is wearing, the pair also asserted that open toe sandals are a ridiculous thing to wear with knee-high socks as they make someone look like "a dowdy old lady on her way to the senior's home".

Instead, Ms Boland and Ms Tyler recommend dress trousers, though as soon as peep-toe or open-toes are worn, the bare foot rule must be observed.

A new look detected in the fashion world this month is that of cut-out leggings, which have been spotted on Lady GaGa, Rihanna and perennial legwear lover Lindsay Lohan, Diedre Wengen of phillyBurbs.com asserted.
