Perhaps they can shed some light on the trend.


Fall is that time of the year when you are allowed to add layers and make different outfit combinations that will keep you warm during the cold days and at the same time give you a trendy look. One of the fashion trends that you should follow this fall are the over the knee socks. There are so many different ways to wear this fashionable piece of clothes. These socks add dimension to your outfits and can be worn in so many ways.

Over the knee socks will definitely spice up your looks. You can combine them with different styles of skirts, dresses and shorts as well as with some oversized sweaters which are also really popular for this time of the year. And when it comes to the footwear, these trendy socks will fit perfectly with your oxfords, loafers, flat boots, but don’t forget to combine them with your favorite pair of heels because this type of outfit is approved too.


Over-the-knee socks are a great layering piece, and perfect for keeping your legs warm in weird, transitioning weather.


In the past few years we have witnessed celebrities and models parading in over the knee socks. It means that now it is about time that we introduce these items from wild 90’s into our own wardrobes. It still remains a mystery for many of us how to wear over the knee socks with style without running into the risk of looking like an overgrown naughty schoolgirl or a character from a saucy movie. These seven simple guidelines will help you find your way in the diversity of looks and styles one can build using over the knee socks.

This look is much favored with the teenage girls and everyone who feels young and playful. If you are not a teenage girl anymore, it might be not easy to pull off this look, but it is not impossible.


One of the most flattering, fashionable, and most definitely practical fall/winter trends is the knee-high sock phenomenon. I am head-over-heels for them!

This is perfect timing for the winter because longer socks keep your legs and feet much warmer. Be brave and get some knee high socks so that you stand out this winter. Getting the right fit is very important as the correct size can really enhance your legs.


Its official: thigh-high socks are back, and may even be here to stay.[adToAppearHere]

Even though they seem easy to wear, thigh-high socks can be a little bit intimidating, especially for someone who’s never worn them before.


Adding thigh high socks to your style can be an exciting way to spice up your outfits! Not only do thigh and knee high socks keep your feet warm and dry from perspiration, they’re also worn for style and steam – adding *oomph* to your outfit.

What the fashion system says and what the fashion customer says are really two different things.

Are we closer to understanding the thinking behind the trending popularity of the over the knee socks? A little.

Ultimately as Mr. Oscar de la Renta expressed, “Fashion is about dressing according to what’s fashionable. Style is more about being yourself.

Well stated.
