Thigh high socks are very popular in Japan. Japanese office ladies often wear them to work with a short skirt and a pair of killer heels. I guess the changeable climate makes them a great choice of legwear for Japan. Japanese women are also big sock wearers which is probably due to the ancient Asian beliefs that keeping the feet warm is very important in order to prevent the body's warmth from escaping through the toes.

White legwarmers or loose socks

Legwarmers are a trendy alternative to socks. They seem to go in and out of fashion quite a bit. However, they're always great partywear, especially for 1980s themed evenings.

In Japan legwarmers are normally called loose socks. They were incredibly popular in the 1990s. Periodically they make a comeback. If you're planning a school cosplay outfit for a school disco night or other event then a pair of loose socks really help make your outfit look much more authentic. Loose socks often fall down so you might have to spend much of your time hitching them back up. The Japanese have an ingenious solution to the problem of loose socks falling down - sock glue! Authentic sock glue is often available from Japanese online stores including JList and Tokyo Toys.

Loose socks are almost always white, although other colors are available. The 1980s were all about color clashing, so pink, purple or red legwarmers wouldn't look out of place if you're going for a Jane Fonda inspired fitness look.

The Japanese also have very thick cable knit socks that are thigh highs as well. They are very attractive.
