At the beginning, you might not see the reason for which you should be wearing knitted over the knee socks, but you may be surprised by their functionality and versatility. In case you wear them the way they should be worn, it becomes very easy to make a fashion statement.
Although you may not see them as a feminine accessory, in case you find a suitable pair and you know how to match them, you can create amazing combinations. This way you can be both, warm and comfortable at the same time, during the cold winter days.
When you are shopping for a new pair of knitted over the knee socks, you should know that their length should depend on your silhouette, outfit and the thickness of the legs. There are some that reach barely over the knees, but there are also longer ones. Make the choice that is the most advantageous for your look. In case you go for the longer versions, you should make sure that the dress or skirt that you are wearing is short enough so that the socks will be entirely visible.
Since one of the main points of these socks is to keep your feet warm, you should really think about the fabric that you choose. If you want to make sure that you won’t go wrong, opt for the socks made of cashmere or wool. Cotton is another option that you may like, but in this case opt for the opaque colors, like black, beige or gray. The colors should give you a more severe look to balance the colors of the outfit. This is why you will rarely find them in other colors or prints.
How to pull it off
The options for wearing the socks are unlimited. As an example you could wear them with denim or leather shorts, or with a mini dress, and you will achieve a look that is sexy and comfortable at the same time. In case you are going for the urban look, match them with a cardigan or parka, a tunic, and boots. In case it is really cold you could also throw in a pair of tights. This way you will be comfortable and warm and you can also hide thicker legs.
When it comes to shoes, there are a lot of options, such as loafers, shearling wedges, derbies or lace up boots.
