Style Tips

When you think of thigh-high socks, you might automatically think “school girl”, but this accessory can also be styled to create a classy look. In fact, with the proper tights and clothing, thigh-high socks can be acceptable for everything from a work date to a brunch date.

Are you ready to introduce thigh-high socks to your weekday wardrobe?

Here’s how to wear thigh-high socks the adult way!

With a fun pair of tights

Thigh-high socks are the ultimate tool to create a layered look. Start with a pair of tights, worn under your socks, to keep warm and to create a more conservative outfit. I paired my green socks with classic heart print tights for a subtle touch of romance and personality that isn’t too over-the-top.

With booties

Add some height to your look and avoid looking like a school girl by rocking a pair of booties with a small block heel. Booties are more mature than loafers and will enhance your layered look by elongating your legs. To complete my look, I styled my outfit with a pair of patent heeled booties.

With a mini skirt

It’s still winter, but you can easily rock your mini skirts when thigh-high socks are in the picture. Swap a flared skirt for a mini black denim skirt for a mature look and let your colourful thigh-high socks be the star of your outfit. A neutral palette will leave your outfit looking more sophisticated.

With a knit and coat

Finally, complete your layered look with a stylish knit and coat. A drapey coat in a rich neutral like off-white will dress up your look, while still keeping it classic. Don’t forget to play with materials and you’ll be rocking thigh-high socks the adult way in no time.
