Fun things about fall, no matter what age you are: Rolling around in crisp, crunchy leaves. Apple cider (and depending how old you are, spiked apple cider!). And cozy new socks! Mid-September means it’s time to layer, and that especially includes your legs. Gone are the days of breezy sundresses. Happily, there’s no cooler way to infuse an interesting knit than with a hot pair of leggy, lengthy socks.
Red Valentino‘s wool-knit thigh-highs put a girly – and sexy – spin on ribbed charcoal. Trimmed in sweet tulle, these are more cocktail than schoolgirl. Feeling more classic fall? Go Nordic with Falke‘s cotton-blend over-the-knee socks, and pair them with a loose dress and chunky ankle boots. And if you’re already missing your flowing Missoni maxis and swimsuits (or missed out on your favorite Missoni for Target items), don’t go into zigzag withdrawal! Their metallic thigh-highs bring on the glam. Layer them with a long granny sweater and cropped leather jacket. On Luisa Via Roma for $337.
