Knees and thighs in sock-wearing war

Knees and thighs in sock-wearing war
A fashion blogger has highlighted the miniscule differences between the similar-yet-opposing trends of sock wearing after spotting stars Ashlee Simpson and Rihanna sporting a two-inch difference recently.

Jennifer O'Shea of My Fashion Life noted that Ashlee's school chic in her sock wearing was popular, using the knee-high hosiery to her advantage, with Sarah Jessica Parker adopting similar style in the Sex and the City the Movie - but only depending on ensemble, she adds.

However, Ms O'Shea congratulated Rihanna's thigh-high leggings as "flashing just the right amount of flesh".

She concluded "That crucial couple of inches that leads from knee-high to thigh-high, as my friend says, is the measurement that takes the look from school to sexy."

Famous saxophonist John Alan Fewkes, who passed away recently, was a hosiery manufacturer before going into music, once supplying the Royal Family with socks in 1976.
