Quick Tip: Tall Socks under Jeans

We want to let you in on a little known secret - opaque thigh highs and tall over the knee socks are great to wear under your jeans in the winter. They keep your legs warm and away from direct contact with your jeans, which can be cold against your skin - especially on a windy day.

Style Tip: Layering

Winter is upon us and I don't know about you, but I'm falling into a jeans and corduroy based laziness. Every winter I want to wear more skirts and dresses, but the cold just makes me lazy. I've finally found a solution to this - Layering.

Legwear that is. Almost anything can be paired together with great fashionable results. Tights paired with crochet over the knee socks, or with leg warmers; leggings paired with scrunched knee socks, leg warmers or both at the same time!

Last winter I paired printed knee socks with our Ophelia footless socks and a pair of pumps for great results. The print just showed on the top of my foot and added just enough unique color to my outfit. Plus they kept my legs a touch warmer.

Below you'll find ideas for layering, and let us know in the comments if there are any pairings we missed.
