Knee socks are a staple for every wardrobe. They can dress down formal attire into something fun and flirty or take a casual outfit to the next level.

School Girl Chic

Knee socks are reminiscent of school days in popular culture the world over. Their cute style and modest length can add a young, feminine touch to an otherwise drab outfit.

Start with a button-up blouse or collared shirt in a soft color like cream, blush, or beige. For a more traditional school look, pair with a knee-length skirt in black or navy - or if you're feeling especially adventurous, plaid or gingham. If you want a more grown-up version of the same look, opt for loose-fitting high-waisted shorts.

This look works perfectly with classic white knee socks. To add an extra touch of fun, select socks with a colored stripe at the top that coordinate with your outfit.

Nightime Knit

Chunky knit sweaters are a functional fashion trend this season. Pale sweater dresses can be paired with grey heather knee socks for an easy casual look.

If sweater dresses aren't your thing, then sweaters and knee-to-mini skirts are also a fun way to make the most out of your bustling sock collection. Bright and sheer socks can wake up an outfit from its winter hibernation. Be careful wearing socks that are as thick as your sweater, however, as it can make an outfit look busy.

Statement jewelry can be hard to pair with sweaters. If you're still looking to make an impression while keeping the chill out, there are a few tips to make this look work. Avoid heavy necklaces and opt instead for chandelier earrings that avoid adding extra bulk.
