the Knee Sock

Grey Knee Socks

It’s fashion week in New York, and the presentation of the Fall 2010 collections, along with the eerily warm weather we’ve been having, signals that it is time to think about our spring wardrobes. I’m looking forward to a muted color palette and a subtly sexy, 70s schoolgirl-inspired look.

Knee Socks

I’m thinking about oversized blazers with short, flowy skirts or silk and linen shorts, printed dresses, and sheer tops. But the most important accessory for the coming season is not only budget-friendly but multi-seasonal: the knee sock.

Fun Knee Socks

I was inspired to buy a pair after seeing a student cycling through a US college town wearing a dress with woolly socks pulled up over her thighs. There’s nothing more charming than girls with dresses on bikes, and this look was the perfect mix of intelligent sex appeal and a classic collegiate sensibility.

The best thing about this accessory is that it is versatile, warm, and inexpensive. Perfect for fickle spring and fall weather when it’s not quite warm enough to go bare-legged and when layered over tights during winter. And since designer wunderkind Alexander Wang sent out models clad in knee socks on his Spring 2010 runway, they’ve become a bonafide trend
