With all the styling options the fall/winter season has to offer, we love adding one to our list that's not only super easy, but doesn't pose a threat to our budget either. Socks for fall are just such a nifty trick, offering a myriad of ways to literally step up your dressing game, whether in the form of knee-highs, detailed ankle socks, or thigh-highs (in lieu of full-on tights before the temps drop). Better still, fall's latest batch of socks gives us even more ways to bring our platform sandals and high-heeled oxfords (the ones you've been dying to wear!) into autumn days with ease. Check out all our choice socks for fall...and lest you think this accessory is too tricky or trendy to try on for size, think again. We've come up with four cute styles that will give your favorite mini or tailored shorts a whole new look.
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.
3. Ankle & Trouser Socks—There's no better way to bring your favorite platform sandals into fall and winter than with a pair of ankle socks; try a bright color under trousers or jeans for a pop of unexpected color.
4. Chunky Socks—A cross between hiking and camp socks, fall's more textured chunky socks look great bunched up around the ankle with skinnier pants or with a pleated mini-skirt and an ankle boot with a wider shaft (think a micro cowboy bootie).
