“Baby it’s cold outside… Wear your Long Thigh High Socks!”
“Baby it’s cold outside… Wear your Nice Warm Coat!” …
I have heard my husband saying these words to me almost every day of the Winter season. The man loves to remind me of how cold it is outside, like I wouldn’t know myself… That’s Love! 🙂 I have lived in the Midwest for over a decade now, and trust me, Winter is always harsh here, but wearing the right clothes and sporting a positive attitude is how you brave those winter days and one of my favorite Winter fashion accessories are Long thigh-high socks.
Thigh-high socks are the perfect footwear choice when you’re looking to cover a bit more skin than just with a pair of knee-highs, but don’t want to wear full tights. I love the fact that they’re so versatile and fashionable, and Chrissy’s socks has some of the most beautiful and fun long thigh-high socks… and they are made in the US. Check them out! 🙂
Oh, and if you are wondering how you can style your high-knee socks, here are a few ideas that I found on Chrissy’s socks website.
OVER SHEER TIGHTS
Thigh-highs are a great addition to simple hosiery. If your sheer tights simply aren’t warm enough or you are looking for a way to make your styling a little more interesting, then wearing a pair of black thigh-highs over a sheer black tight creates a very attractive gradience of shades. The two-tone effect is both trendy and subtle enough to be pulled off from daytime office-wear to an evening outfit. Alternatively, you can play around with color combinations and wear tights of any color under your socks. This lets you have fun with a pop of color rather than going overboard with it.
OVER PATTERNED TIGHTS
Sometimes, a pair of patterned tights with a great design can look a little too busy. Wearing a pair of solid thigh-highs is the perfect way to create a more subtle look and wear the pattern on your tights as a statement peeking above your thigh-highs. Wear a sexy black print with your black thigh-highs or opt for a fun and playful combination in a pair of colorful hosiery and white thigh-highs. Why worry about getting a run in your hosiery or choosing between comfort and fashion? This combination is the perfect balance of both.
SHORT SKIRTS & SHORTS
This has been a favorite look on the fashion runways, television, online media and magazines for many years. Pairing up your mini skirt, tailored shorts, or even sweater dress with a pair of thigh-highs is the perfect way to wear a short hemline and still look sophisticated. Why not try a combination of a pair of short-shorts and an oversized knit with your thigh-highs? It is a warm, casual look with the added flair of showing a little bit of skin. The great thing about thigh-highs and mini dresses is that they can transition from a cute lecture look to party wear simply by switching from a pair of flats to some platforms or high heels.
Forget wearing a daggy, mismatched pair of cartoon themed socks under your boots, because you think “no-one will see them”. Thigh-highs are an excellent accessory that will look particularly attractive when worn under your knee-high or thigh-high boots. Wearing your socks this way lets you show them off just a little bit and play around with layering. This doesn’t just look cute and fashionable, but it also makes wearing boots a lot more comfortable.
WITH ANKLE BOOTS
Ankle boots with shorter outfits can sometimes look less than perfect because they visually shorten legs or seem inappropriate for the weather conditions. When your outfit just doesn’t look quite right with a pair of ankle boots, the ideal accessory is a pair of thigh-high socks. Match colors to create the illusion of a slim boot or play around with contrasts by pairing your dark ankle boots with a pair of white thigh-high socks.
