Ankle booties and knee socks are a match made in heaven! If you’ve ever tried out this fashionable combination, you understand its chic appeal. The beautiful thing about booties is that their heel adds femininity and visually lengthens your legs, while their low rise shows off your knee sock-clad legs in their full glory.
It’s tough to beat the comfort and warmth of the combination of knee socks and winter boots. Try a pair of thicker knee socks with loose-fitting, ultra soft fleece lined boots for an effortlessly cute style. These slipper boots can be worn inside as well. If you’re stepping out and braving the cold in a pair of tightly-laced winter boots, select a thinner pair of our flat-knit knee-highs, which are specifically designed to fit under snug boots without adding bulk to your legs. If the climate you live in is cold enough to necessitate covering your entire leg, try layering your knee socks over a pair of tights. This way you’ll stay toasty without having to compromise on style and sex appeal, no matter how chilly it is outside.
Tall Heeled Boots
Knee socks and tall heeled boots are such a classically sexy combination. As the heels lift and stretch your calves into a flattering shape, knee socks accentuate and draw attention to your legs. There are endless ways to pair this look with the right outfit. Try it with an ultra-feminine, long flowing bohemian skirt, or dress it down with a casual mid-length A-line skirt. Add an extra layer of texture and interest to your outfit by pairing flat-knit knee socks with suede heeled boots, or spice things up with the rock-and-roll sex kitten vibe of tall leather heeled boots.
Tall Flat Boots
A pair of knee socks peeking out above a pair of tall flat boots add just the right touch of modest femininity. This look is a perfect pick-me-up for autumn days when the weather is slightly rainy or you’re heading back to school. This combination has an adorable school-girl feel when worn with a plaid skirt, and is seriously fashionable with a simple skirt and a classic trench coat. Once you try this look, you’ll quickly find yourself wearing it throughout the transitional months of spring and fall.
Wedges and Platforms
Wedges are an excellent choice when pairing your socks with a shoe that will give you some extra height. The solid heel creates a smooth line at the end of your socks to create an illusion of elongated legs. You will walk with extra height and confidence in a pair of knee-high socks and simple wedged heels or boots. This is the ideal solution for a smart casual outfit or something that is even work/school appropriate.
High Heels, Pumps, Stilettos and Sandals
For the classically elegant fashionista, there is no other choice but high heels when it comes to choosing a knee sock / shoe combination. High heeled shoes make your legs look amazing and show off their full length, while knee-highs add a playfully young feeling to the look. Depending on your choice of socks, this look can be customized to create an endless array of styles. Try sheer black knee-high socks with sleek high heels for a subtly sexy look. A brightly colored or novelty-patterned pair of socks are instantly made more formal and grown up when paired with classy high heels.
Pumps are also a favorite option for women who wear knee-high socks because they are a classic design that can complement a simple sock or add a neutral element to a bright or loud sock design. Pumps are a more mature, lower heel which is comfortable for dancing or to wear on a daily basis at the office.
Vamp things up in these ultra high, thin-heeled shoes. There’s no better way to make a statement in stiletto heels than to wear them with a killer pair of knee-high stockings. Your fashion sense is unmistakable when you wear a short dress, knee socks, and 5-inch stilettos out on the town.
Socks and sandals make for a fabulous combination when styled the right way. European fashion houses love this trend and once you have found a good color match for your shoes and socks, you can play around with the length of the sock or create the appearance of slim legs with a scrunched-up legwarmer effect.
You will feel super comfortable while looking fabulously chic in flats and knee-high socks. This is a favorite choice for classic ladies from Paris to New York. There is something to be said for practical footwear and active women on the move often turn to flats for their style and ease of wear. Adding knee-high socks is a great way to stay warm in cold weather without sacrificing cute flats for boots. Knee-high socks can add some modest coverage to an outfit of ballet flats and a short skirt when you feel that your legs are too bare. Pair ballet flats with some soft pastel-colored knee socks for a sweet and pretty dancer-inspired look.
Rock-and-roll in a cute pair of roller-skates that wouldn't be complete without a gorgeous pair of knee-high socks. This retro look has made a comeback and if you are heading out for a skate, try on a pair of short-shorts and knee-highs to complete your look in a retro color like orange, or one of our roller-skate prints. Not only will they look super cute, but they also protect your legs from the discomfort caused by your skates rubbing against your skin. You’ll feel free to sail across the rink in style at your next competitive roller derby bout or Sunday skate.
Sneakers, Tennis Shoes and Trainers
Have some fun with your everyday sneakers and add a pair of cute and sexy knee socks. One of the best examples of stylized street-wear is the high-top sneaker/knee-high combination. The quality of material of our socks also makes them very comfortable and breathable if you choose to wear them with trainers while exercising. This is a match made in knee-high heaven. We recommend a white tube sock with a colored stripe in a shade that you are wearing. This will tie together all the elements of your outfit for a retro-inspired, extremely cute casual look.
Paired with the right pair of tennis shoes, knee socks can evoke the image of country club chic, giving you a preppy look which will look just as good on the tennis court as it will at the mall.
The Mary-Janes-and-knee-socks look is commonly seen on children, but as a grown-up style, it’s certainly not for any old "Plain Jane". This footwear combination has come a long way from the private school look. As an adult, you can play around with contrasting colors or choose a two-toned knee-high sock that complements your strappy Mary Jane shoes for a fun twist on a classic look that will fit right in at work, school, or on a formal evening out to a gallery or symphony.
Whether its a special holiday or just a day to lounge around the house, socks can add that extra bit of comfort while wearing your slippers.
