How To Wear Knee High Socks

Wearing a pair of knee high socks can be a tricky look to pull off, unless you are particularly interested in looking like Britney Spears circa 1999. However, if you’re looking for some smart styling tips on how to wear knee high socks, look no further. This girl, who was spotted by Elle, works the look with ease.


Wearing a pair of knee high socks can be a tricky look to pull off, unless you are particularly interested in looking like Britney Spears circa 1999. However, if you’re looking for some smart styling tips on how to wear knee high socks, look no further. This girl, who was spotted by Elle, works the look with ease.

The trick to wearing knee high socks is to be sensible about the amount of skin you show. Ensure that the tops of your socks are about 1-2 inches from the hemline of your skirt/dress. Do as our stylish muse below does and balance the look with an oversized coat and a pair of leather boots. The look is downright stylish.

Get this look by pairing Juicy Couture’s Faux Fur Cropped Jacket ($400) with this Bandage Mini Skirt ($39) from Arden B. Add Spiegel’s Back Buckle Over The Knee Boot ($60) and Lucky Brand’s Kasbah Wrap ($59.50).

    Great advice! Knee high socks are something I want to incorporate into my wardrobe a bit more. Actually, since I have a date in an hour or so, I may do that tonight!
