Most of us would happily leave the fashion of our school days behind, but one item continues to resurface as a style hit - the knee high sock. Women's knee high socks have gone from schoolgirl staple to the fashionista accessory of the moment, with an endless range of ways to wear the look.

Preppy meets chic with women's knee high socks

There's something about the leg-lengthening silhouette of women's knee high socks that allows us to proudly flash our pins without showing much skin at all. Teaming a pair of black ladies' knee high socks with a sleek mini dress and leather ankle boots is an effortlessly chic outfit that oozes individual style and can easily be changed up with accessories like bags, belts and jewellery.

Revamp your skirts with women's knee high socks

Go full-on preppy with women's knee high socks in clean white or blue and pair with a tartan or simple denim skirt. Finish the look with a slouchy slogan tee and chunky biker boots for an edgy twist, or wear with a basic shirt and kitten heels to tone it down for a sophisticated finish. Channel this season's sports luxe trend by teaming knee high socks for women with a pair of statement sneakers or high-tops and wear with a bomber jacket for an urban-inspired edge.
