From the runway to the street, knee-high socks have always been popular with the fashion crowd all over the world, and they show no signs of stopping. Maybe it's because there are so many ways to style a look which incorporates knee socks. They can be dressed up or dressed down for formal or casual occasions depending on your choice of the socks' fabric, length, color and pattern.

Because knee socks have a young, sporty feeling by their nature, you can have fun contrasting their youthful look with an otherwise grown-up or conservative outfit. Because of their popularity during several historic eras, knee socks naturally lend themselves to creating a retro look. Simply add a flapper dress and flats for a 1920's look, or a flowing bohemian dress and tall suede boots for a '70s feeling.
