There is something very sexy about a flash of thigh on an otherwise covered body. Over the knee socks are school girl preppy chic meets sexy siren and a must have for the coming season. Autumn may feel a little cooler but your pins will be looking fierce.

From the Catwalk:

Prada
Sophisticated, daring and a little kooky, the Prada knee highs perfectly complimented the gorgeous catwalk looks. As an ode to the female form with 1950’s shapes and feminine glamour, knee high socks added a new dimension to this show.

The luxe textures at Prada made a bold statement. Don’t be afraid to experiment with pattern and colour. In black, grey and neutrals with dashes of eye popping colour; Miuccia Prada took knee highs to lady-like perfection.

Dior
Adding a new dimension to the Dior Pre-fall show, knee highs took the military theme over the top. In succulent shades of khaki, olive, and brown; knee highs with bows and fine detailing looked ever so sweet yet undeniably sexy.

Louis Vuitton
While at Louis Vuitton’s Pre-fall collection, knee highs had a playful, youthful energy. Paired with mini cashmere sweater dresses and coats; there was a reminiscent 1960’s school girl edge. In black with thin pastel stripes at the knee, stocks were worn with pumps, wedges and boots.

Reinvent Your Autumn Looks:
Over the knee socks can make your outfit. They enable you to mix up your wardrobe and reinvent your Autumn favourites in a fresh light. Wear knee highs with shorts, dresses and skirts that stop mid-thigh. Make sure there is a big enough gap between the hemlines of your clothes and the top of the socks. This will elongate and slim for longer looking pins. To complete the look, slip on lady-like heels with bows or pumps for pure perfection.

Leg Lengthening Styles:
When choosing your perfect pair, there are three main lengths that you need to consider:  knee high socks, over the knee socks and thigh high socks. Decide which length is best suited to your body type and go from there. The wrong length may cut your body in an unflattering way – making you look larger than you are.

For curvaceous vixens, thigh high socks will draw extra attention to this area. A pair that sits just below the knee will be a sliming option; accentuating the smallest part of your legs. Shorter ladies will also rock these lesser lengths, especially when paired with hemlines that touch your mid thigh. Keep your socks loose to allow your skin to breathe and create a flattering silhouette.

Top Tip: For extra warmth and not so much exposure, wear skin coloured stockings underneath your knee highs…x

What do you think of the knee high trend? What leg wear will you be choosing this Autumn – are you sticking with tights or will you be stepping out in knee highs?
