Over the knee socks have been a desirable ever since Cher rocked them in Clueless. But it takes a certain kind of look to wear them, and no matter how cool I think they look, they're not the easiest of things to wear. They're also a little bit cold, if you're wearing shorts or a tiny skirt to show them off, you'll get shivery. So, I plan on cheating after seeing a fabulous-looking girl wearing knee-high socks over tights, I'll be 'borrowing' her look with these babies:
These are perfect if you've not tried over the knee socks before. The ruffle tops are cute too. They're £8 from Urban Outfitters (who frankly could have put the model in a pair of heels instead of making her stand on tippy toes).
These pinstripe socks from River Island look so snuggly (by the way, loving their website redesign, so much easier to shop on there now). And they're a purse-friendly £4.99 too. But, I'd remove that little bow.
If you really want to channel Miss Cher (she was a 90s style icon, after all), then these preppy argyle patterned socks are perfect. Wear them with a little black shift dress. They're £8 from Topshop.
These are my favourite. They're sexy, they're cute, the handmade, and they're made from bamboo so they'll be snuggly soft and strokey too. They're $9.50 from Pinkpong on Etsy. They'll cost you $3.60 in postage too, but that's worth it for such prettiness.
