sock it to me

With over-the-knee (OTK) boots being one of the hottest trends for the fall then it's really no surprise that super tall socks are also making a huge comeback.  A few weeks ago, I started noticing knee/thigh high socks in tons of fall ads, and I was a little apprehensive to confess to the brunette that I was sort of liking what I was seeing, but then I was even more surprised when she agreed! 

So now we are both supporting and loving this cozy fall trend...

Seriously, I'm in LOVE with these high socks and shorts!

J Crew girls in over the knee socks = perfection!
You can purchase these exact thigh high socks here.

Cynthia Steefe's fall show also featured tons of super cute thigh high socks!


If you aren't ready to go out full force with the high socks then you can always try them with boots for a little more discreet style...

LL even wore the look on one of her first post jail/rehab outings!

This style is probably my fave...very casual chic!

I know this pic is awful, but I still had to share because I'm loving the legging, socks and boots! 

I just love how layered and cozy the look above feels...very similar vibe to the Rag & Bone Fall 2010 show! 
Love this show...full of chunky knee socks!

Speaking of chunky knee socks, Miu Miu filled their show with these awesome cable knits socks...

Free People offers this cute pair tall cable socks.  They aren't near as thick, but still pretty cute and they come in several colors! 

Sheers are also huge this fall.  I think you have to be very careful with this look because it could go from cute to trampy real quick;)  I think these Proenza Schouler looks are styled to skin except for a little thigh!


I'm a huge fan of all these looks and can't wait to experiment with the different styles.  (fyi -there are several references online about what length (knee or thigh) will work best with your body type.)

So three cheers for fall and knee (or thigh) socks:)

  1. LOOOOOVE the pic of the girl wearing mustard colored socks under her boots with her dog. That is how I would do the OTK sock look but I think I would end up looking ridic- I don't think I am brave enough to try this trend yet even though I like it. :)
