Go Into Fall With Tall Socks & Legwarmers

Socks are one of the best parts of fall dressing. Of course we love that they keep us warm, but socks can add a special layer of interest to any look, and they can bring a whole outfit together. I’ll forever be a fan of tall socks, and this season I’m really excited to see legwarmers in our online selection! I styled our blog intern Casey in some of my favorite fall dresses to show a few ways we love wearing tall socks and legwarmers.

Tall Socks and Leg Warmers

How incredible is the First Kiss Dress? It also comes in black, and I can not get enough of it this fall. I always like to wear legwarmers and tall socks with a maxi dress because you can let the dress drape over the top of your leg, revealing the socks and just a hint of bare skin.

Mini dresses and tall socks are a staple for fall. I love pairing tall socks with tall boots, and letting them peek out over the top. Although you can’t tell from underneath the boots, these socks are two-toned, which is a fun little secret to keep to yourself while you’re wearing them.

Tall socks are also a great way to add some interested to a casual tee like the We The Free Revolver Tee. Here we teamed them with ankle boots so that you get to see more of the sock.

It’s so funny that you guys did a post on this today. I am wearing the voile and lace trapeze slip as a dress today paired with some knitted lace over the knee socks and calf boots. Obviously, I love mini dresses and tall socks for fall.

Love this and so glad you did a post! I’ve been planning to add some over the knee socks to my fall wardrobe! They are too cute! Great styling Brigette!

I love tall socks, whether with a long maxi dress/skirt or short. Free People always has really cute designs too =)

I love boot cuffs too!
Gives me a great excuse to wear shorter skirts in the Fall!

Tall socks are just the absolute best for Fall time! I think it’d be cool to wear a skirt with tights then adding tall socks or leg warmers with boots. I just worry it might be too much but who doesn’t love layering!?

socks, dresses, and boots are the best combo ever:)

I love the look of a heavy duty cable knit sock peeking out of a boot, but don’t always want all that bulk inside my boot so a quick snip across the sleeves of an outdated sweater does the trick. Now I have a pair of legwarmers for zero cost. Tip: be sure to either run the raw edge of your new leg warmers through your sewing machine on the zig-zag stitch or turn them under and glue with fabric glue.
