Found: The Perfect Over-The-Knee Socks (For Any Size Thighs!)

I’m really into the over-the-knee socks trend. I think they look super cute under boots, layered over tights, leggings, or bare legs. They’re flattering, sexy, and warm — a rare trifecta that’s been especially appreciated in this awful cold weather we’ve been having. I had been wistfully admiring this look on other women for awhile, but I was hesitant to try it myself. As someone with, umm, ample thighs, I didn’t think I’d ever be able to find over-the-knee socks that didn’t pinch or create a wool sausage effect. Then I ordered a pair of EG Smith over-the-knee socks from Sock Dreams, and now I’m rarely ever not wearing them. I had to take a moment to share the love with y’all, because these socks are THAT good. Keep reading »

When I recently surveyed my sock drawer and noticed that my collection was all hole-filled stinkers and pairs that I’d “borrowed” from friends, I realized that it was time to update my footdrobe. I started with these Digital Tiger Ankle Socks, which send the appropriate “Don’t step on my toes” message. Footwear that is both threatening and adorable feels like the right way to go. Just think, nobody will ever accuse me of foot odor again — they’ll be too scared of my socks. Rawr! [$6, TopShop]

Not Your Mama’s Tights

If you’re like me, you probably go through a pair or two of tights a week. Also, if you’re like me, you probably grew up with the brand No Nonsense — the line of mom-friendly hosiery and tights that practically everyone wore in the ’80s. Well times have changed, and so has the company, which now offers young, hip and modern tights and hose. In addition to their standard sheer pantyhose selections, they’ve got opaque tights, comfy leggings and beautifully patterned hosiery. And the best part? These tights are durable and well-made; no more buying multiple pairs of tights to get you through the month. [Prices Vary, No Nonsense]

The best thing about fall (besides new TV shows and crunchy leaves and pumpkin spice lattes) is stepping out in a cute pair of boots, and what makes a cute pair of boots even cuter? A chunky cable knit sock peeking out from the top. Get the layered look without the bulk by cutting the arms off an old sweater to create these adorable leg warmers, which would look just as awesome pulled over thick tights as they do with jeans.
