It’s love: knee highs and the style of the 60s and 70s
Prada dug them up again, the lovely knee-highs. And how? In almost stylish retro sixties looks. That inspires, because the 60s and 70s are reviving this year. In this sense, our combination favorites for knee-high socks are mini-skirts (tweed and leather are particularly trendy from autumn). They are especially perfect with a length between one and two hand’s width in front of a knee. To do this, we put on our favorite white shirt blouse and / or favorite sweater: And what about shoe technology? For every occasion: lace-up shoes – preferably with a masculine touch, such as brogues. If you want, you can also top it off with a Seventies platform sandal.
Glam + punk, grunge or Gothic + knee high stockings = trendy outfit
Punk, grunge and gothic are now styles with which we all fashion fans like to play, because: The more rocky to rocky styles now have a large portion of glam and are therefore suitable for everyday use. And this is where knee socks come into play: Combat or other chunky boots like Dr. Martens and knee highs are a dream together! And what about it? Preferably a pants suit with hip knee-length suit trousers with pleats. With details such as rivets on the handbag, we add a subtle pinch of punk, for example with a cult band shirt (Nirvana – who else?) We pick up on grunge, for example, we get the Gothic factor with a delicate frill collar blouse .
A little tip: It is best to choose one of the three iconic and expressive styles, break it with a bit of elegance and combine the knee socks with it – a dog from every village might be too much.
With the right stocking: sporty and casual
The athleisure trend cannot be killed – it will remain with us for a while and as long as the weather permits we will wear our Chunky Ugly Dad sneakers. When it gets cold, we simply put on sporty knee socks – preferably with the typical stripes on the waistband. In addition a shorter skirt and a hoodie – done! Of course, the athleisure knee-highs liaison with elegant sandals is particularly exciting – and here our short, knee-length pleated trousers are used again, or even more in the sporty direction, a casually fitting boxer sports trousers with a high waistband – t-shirt and blazer and let’s go!
Elegance in stockings
Especially since Prada’s initiative are knee-high socks that are semi-transparent and close with an opaque waistband directly under the knee. These stockings are just perfect to wear with elegant dresses and to combine chic sandals or elegant pumps. With a nice trench coat or woolen coat, a perfect autumn outfit is made – so it’s only half as difficult for us to say goodbye to summer;)
