Who knew that even your socks could make a fashion statement?! Thigh high socks are all the rage this winter and go great paired with a well-layered outfit for those cold months. Creating the perfect outfit to wear with thigh high socks takes talent because you can easily go from fashionista to street-walker with the wrong pair of socks. These tips will ensure that you rock these upcoming cold months in style. Let’s begin!
Layering thigh high socks with sheer tights underneath is perfect for winter! This subtle layering effect keeps you warm and doesn’t look too bulky. Knit socks will keep you the warmest and opt for thicker materials if you are wanting to stay warm. Layering two different color and length thigh highs will add dimensions to your thighs.
When choosing a color, go for neutrals or basic colors (black, grey, tan, etc.) These colors are very easy to pair with outfits, don’t make everything look too busy, and make your legs look slimmer. Patterned thigh high socks make your legs look wider due to the elaborate print. Thigh highs with intricate stitching, like fishnets, have a thin line between inappropriate and gorgeous. Keep the socks simple and the right length.
These socks are also great for coverage! If high-waisted shorts show too much skin for your taste, strap on an over-sized cardigan to cover the back and then thigh high socks to cover your legs. Thigh high socks should go up to a little higher than your knee. If you get a pair that goes too high, you might as well just wear full-length tights. If you wear a pair too short, the socks look more like men’s dress socks. Pairing thigh high socks with boots and booties are perfect for winter.
