1. Thigh-High Socks—A favorite on the fall/winter runway, thigh-highs are best worn with tailored shorts or a mini-skirt with heeled booties; you can also go layered over tights or jeans peeking out of your tallest boots.

2. Knee-High Socks—We love the new installment of knee-highs pulled all the way up with the season's heeled desert boots or scrunched down with booties or a T-strap heel. To get the full effect, a knee-length skirt or dress is key.
