How to Wear Over-the-Knee Socks

It's the worst Winter problem: you're bundled up in your coat and scarf, but if you're wearing a dress, your legs are left to weather the elements. While tights offer some coverage, why not mix things up and try tall socks instead? They're cozy, ultraflattering, and honestly way easier to manage than cumbersome stockings. So while you might equate knitted socks with lounging around at home, wearing tall socks works equally well for those times you're out and about.

We turned to our favorite style pros for knee-high styling inspiration. From layering with boots to dressing them up for a night out, these ensembles prove that this Winter staple can work for any occasion. So stay cozy and chic this Winter with a little inspiration here — along with shopping, of course!
