Let’s face it: During the winter, donning tights day in and day out can get real old, real quick, especially considering all the inconvenient midday rips we’ve suffered.
Luckily, there’s a better way to show off your gams without covering ‘em up completely: thigh-high socks. The unabashedly feminine cousin of leggings, over-the-knee socks offer an extra layer of warmth with a teeny price tag. Plus, we hear they’re less likely to get lost in the wash.
So, whether you’re looking for a little extra coverage over your tights or you’re rocking a bare mid-thigh on a mild day, we’re bringing you 11 options that just might compel you to break out those platform sandals a few months early.
