Thigh Highs + Tights (See Jane Layer)

I live in a frigid town.  For (at least) three months straight, the winds howl while snow violently swirls outside your bedroom window.  It makes a girl want to hibernate all winter.  What can be even more discouraging is knowing that clothes you bought for fall and winter don't seem nearly warm enough to make you want to brave the great outdoors.  We can't wear the same cozy sweater out every weekend; sometimes you want to wear a dress.  For when plain ol' tights won't cut it, layer it on:

As a former Catholic schoolgirl, I was always partial to wearing high socks with my uniform, so my love for this look is obvious.  Still, I don't foresee myself ever wearing thigh high socks in public.  The compromise:  wearing them over tights however will both keep me warm and allow me to play with the trend.  Also, you can find them just about anywhere (even Kohls sells them), so you can shamelessly experiment. 

Will you try thigh highs/over the knee socks with tights in the winter?

  6. I'm wayy beyond too old for knee highs but I love the leggings. As for tights, not so much as they don't always hold up in the waist.

    Have a great day :)

  12. I actually love wearing knee-high socks over a pair of tights a lot. Esp if you have skinny legs, the socks will fill your knee-high boots out a little more and make your legs shapely instead of dorky ;)

  13. I feel like I've tried everything with these crazy winters! I definitely wear tights under my pants in the winter.

  14. I love the idea of layering these! Those Forever21 ones would be so cute with black tights, booties, and a dress -- I swear, Miss AJ, you're a freaking genius.

  16. What a great idea! I wish I had thought of this last weekend. I actually brought a pair of shorts and tights and once I realized how cold it was in Chicago, I decided to stay in jeans the entire weekend.

  18. I am reeeeeally tempted to try knee socks this winter. Last year I would have never even considered it. This year may be different. I'm on the verge of wearing leg warmers too. So, who knows if i'll try the knee socks or not. But this post has me almost convinced to try them! :)

  19. I bought a pair of cream above-the knee socks at TJ Maxx that I cannot wait to pair over tights and slipped into my tall boots! I'll have to do a pic of the finished product :) I love your wardrobe!

  20. interestingly enough I have been doing this look, as well as over skin tight denim- this last look only works if your wearing boots since the layers can get bulky..

    p.s I'm was a Catholic school girl once too ;)

  21. Is such a good look - chic or sexy take your pick!

  22. Thigh highs is one of the best legwear for women, due to its warming properties and the sexiness it brings, especially when matched right with proper clothes and lingerie, just as how I mix and match various Marie Jo and Prima Donna bras and underpants with my current clothes and situation. Also, about the cold weather condition, it would be better if you have clothes that lets you soldier through it.
