OTK Sock Love

January 22, 2012

It’s throwback time. Remember when over-the-knee socks made a brief appearance on the “IN” list? You know, in the 90’s when you thought it was COOL to pair them with Mary Janes and a short pleated skirt à la Britney in her famed Hit Me One More Time video. OTK socks have made a comeback, in a more rustichic way. The chunkier the knit, the better, and I’m seeing them all over the NYC streets paired with casual riding boots. Here are two pics of the look in action, there are more pinned to my Socks & Boots board on Pinterest. By the way – if you’re not on Pinterest, you MUST join immediately. And follow me!

Time to try the look myself. I paired some HUE OTK socks with knee-high boots and leggings for easy chic results.

I got the socks on sale for $7.00 at Macy’s. Couldn’t find this exact pair on the HUE website, but click here for some similar ones available for $12. Nice!
