Here's another article about different types of socks.

Thigh high socks are a great choice of legwear if the weather's cold or you want to put together a sexy looking outfit. Black or white thigh high socks are especially popular, but they also come in a wide range of other colors. Knee socks or loose socks are another type of sock.

Sexy white thigh high socks

Thigh high socks go in and out of fashion, but one thing is certain - men love it when women wear them!

Thigh high socks are available in a wide range of colors. White thigh highs are great as they go with pretty any outfit. Black thigh highs are also a good choice. White thigh high socks are especially popular with Japan's many cosplay girls - they go especially well with maid outfits or anime character cosplay outfits.

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 tights

White tights come in many different styles. The more expensive thicker pairs are more long lasting and are good to wear on a cold Winter's day. White tights are a great wardrobe essential and they'll go with pretty much any outfit.

When you're buying tights online remember that you usually get what you pay for. The more expensive they cost, the more comfortable they will be to wear. They'll usually last longer as well. Good brands to look out for include Falke, Levante and Gerbe.

For parties and special occasions another alternative is to wear white fishnet tights. For the ultimate in sexy outfits, team them up with a pair of knee length boots.

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.
