World Fashion: The Over the Knee Look

While Wool Over the Knee Socks are going to be hot for Fall, the over the knee look will start this Spring and Summer in Sheers. The March issue of Spanish Harper's Bazaar featured prints mixed with prints. The models wore Stockingirl Printed Thigh Highs, scrunched down to hit just above the knee. They looked fabulous paired with printed garments in the same color pallette.

The Japanese have also embraced this trend of traditional thigh highs worn as over the knee socks. Sunaokuwahara, a Japanese Designer, featured the Lace Top Stocking over the knee look with skirts for a cute, yet sexy look:

To get this look, you can buy lace top thigh highs or lace top stockings in a smaller size than you would normally wear, making them shorter, so the lace top hits your lower thigh rather than mid thigh.
