Although I don´t wear it often, I´m a big fan of knee-high socks. You can see me rock a pair in my outfit post Trench Coat with Over-the-Knee Socks. I love wearing them with ballerina flats of the same color and I giggle when other fashionistas remark, “I adore your knee-high boots!” Really, they can disguise for boots.
I also have a pair of red knee socks with tiny prints in black which are very prep school. Although I´m not quite sure yet how to wear them, I´m scheming for my next outfit post featuring them. I look up to the Glee characters for inspirations, especially Rachel. You know, while knee socks are the trade mark of Glee show and many other characters wear them, Rachel Berry arguably wears them best.
So for you all Gleeks who mistakenly stumble on my blog searching for “knee socks glee”, here are three looks for you to steal. Rock those knee socks with glee, darlings!
Gorgeous and Elegant
You can wear knee socks for a gorgeous and elegant look. This outfit is about complementary colors. I picked an aubergine sock to go with the blue dress. I wanted a smooth transition from the socks to the footwear so I went for these cigar brown ankle boots. The black handbag and silver/black ring help to pop up the colors.
Back to School
The kids are back to school but this is our matured version. Argyle patterns are not kiddie, are they? We wear them on shirts so why not on socks? This embroidered lilac tuck top teamed with brown, sexy mini leather skirt create a very fresh look. Black ankle boots are perfect to go with your bias pleated argyle socks with black background color. Add some flirty and casual bangles and an ink blue handbag and you´ve got a polished prep look.
Toughened Girly Look
We all know that the best way to toughen a girly dress is by throwing over a black leather jacket. Glee character Heather Morris (pictured right above) just applied the same style strategy on her knee socks outfit. It´s so fun to mimic. I found this American Vintage rust belted mini dress gorgeous enough to go with this Eddie Bauer leather jacket. White socks in brown boots and a designer inspired folded brown clutch are great to complete this combo.
Have Your Say
So tell me Creative Fashionistas, what do you think of the trademark knee socks look of Glee´s characters? Are you a fan of knee socks?

I’m a total Gleek, but I’m not sure if I can pull the knee socks off. Looks great on Lea Michele though!
