Knee-high socks don’t have to be classroom uniform. As Taylor Swift and Katy Perry kindly demonstrated yesterday, stepping out (albeit separately) in New York sporting knee-high socks.

Make like Taylor and channel the preppy look by teaming your knee high socks with short shorts and an oversized shirt for a grown-up city feel or take inspiration from Katy Perry’s  glam grunge look by swapping your classic black tights for a pair of black knee high socks and teaming with a black leather jacket and tea dress.

Not only are they a great alternative to tights they’re a perfect transitional purchase for when it’s too chilly to brave a bare leg. Team with heels and avoid longer hem lines to nail the look without looking like you’re late to class. Scroll through our gallery above to shop the best 10 knee high socks available to buy now...
