How to Wear a Knee High Socks Vertical

As it’s ever so slowly becoming colder, I have started to become obsessed with the knee high socks trend. Well I’m not really sure how much of a trend it is, as I haven’t seen it around much, until I started watching Lost and Found Music Studios, which is a new Netflix Original TV show. A couple of the characters on it wear knee highs all the time and they look so cute but I had already bought myself some knee high socks off eBay before that. I first saw them while searching for outfit inspiration on google images and Pinterest.

Knee high socks are perfect for the Autumn and Spring in-between weather where it’s not really cold enough to wear full on long pants yet. They are great for wearing with short dresses. You can have them folded down over your shoes and then unroll them up your leg when it starts to get chilly. They can also be worn in many different ways which is what I’m about to show you. I’ve included below the inspiration I found online and then how I interpreted the outfit with clothing from my wardrobe. Join me in my obsession with knee highs.
