Tall Socks

Fall is here and we are beginning to search the bottom of our dressers to bring out the tall socks. While our leg warmers can wait, how about I suggest some ways to dress up with our tall socks? It's Fall but we should not neglect colors. Where's the fun in sticking with grey and black? This Fall is really cold and you have an excuse to wear those longs socks. Try out these fashionable ways and keep all eyes on you this season for good reasons.

Put on a pair of tall socks with a thigh-high A-line dress. The dress should either be a plain color or patterned but ditch neon colored socks and stick with secondary shades. Make your look fun and flirty with polka dot or pin strip socks on a solid or plain colored dress. Flats always works but how about a pair of platform sandals?

Imagine the tall socks with thigh-length boyfriend shorts, not jeans, and a pair of sneakers to complete the look. Lets not forget that the tall socks can work with both an A-line and pencil-styled skirts, not longer than below the knees of course.I'm sure you all can come up with a variety of looks with tall socks. Stay warm!
