I have been a big fan of knee high socks since Clueless first aired in the cinemas in the '90s. Personally, I like wearing them over opaque tights, which retains some modesty and also warmthwhen living in the unpredicatable climate of Scotland. If you're feeling brave, they look great with a pretty Summer dress when the weather allows you be bare legged.
Here are some tips for amazing stockists of knee high socks:
First up is Leg Avenue, who are America's version of Anne Summers, only with a focus on clothing. They also do a fantastic range of swimwear, hoisery and dressup. The best thing is they have a well established, easy to use web site at http://www.legavenue.co.uk/. The delivery is always very prompt.
American Apparel stock a fantastic selection of thigh high socks, starting at £13.00. They also have pretty knee socks. They have a UK based web site at store.americanapparel.co.uk.
Surprisingly, Marks and Spencer always do a great range of socks. They never fail to impress me with cute, quirky designs for socks, tights, leggings, the lot. Here are a couple of items I recently found on their site - cute little grey leg warmers and stirrup knee high socks at just £4.00 each. Bargain! http://www.marksandspencer.com/
If all else fails, ASOS usually have a good supply of hoisery. They do a more affordable version of American Apparel's knee- and thigh-high socks. The black ones are £4.00, the stripey ones are £6.00:
