Both thigh-high stockings and knee-high socks have earned their spots in the fashion hall of fame for ranging from adorable to very sexy. And while knee-highs were reserved for the schoolgirl look and lacy, sheer nylons were worn by vixens looking to leave their men speechless, no one really gave much thought to the fashion sonic boom that would be created if these two looks merged into one. Well…guess what?
That’s right, designers such as American Apparel have created thigh high socks, not nylons, but socks made of wool or cotton that are styled in the same designs as schoolgirl knee socks. But these schoolgirl socks don’t stop at the knee. They are thigh highs and this adds an instant shot of sexy to the look. Many girls wear these with short skirts or shorts to show them off and complete this sexy look by wearing them with stilettos or Mary Jane high heels. American Apparel has perfectly captured the look of knee socks with these thigh high socks. One of the coolest styles is the sporty “tube” sock style worn traditionally by guys. These socks are white or black with the traditional three rings around the top in an accent color. In this case the rings are around the mid-thigh area. These thigh high socks also come in wide rugby stripes and solid colors.
