In fall, sometimes I find myself stuck somewhere between a rock and hard place. More accurately, I am stuck between still wanting to wear some of my warm weather favorites while facing the crisp autumn air.

Don’t shelf your short, summer frocks just yet. As this Fashionista illustrates, the answer is simple: over-the-knee socks. Over-the-knee socks are the perfect solution because they allow you to still show some skin while protecting you from biting winds. I love how this Fashionista paired hers with a pair of black brogues. By pairing it was a simple shoe, it really allows the over-the-knee socks to play a pivotal role in the ensemble. I also love pairing my over-the-knee socks under tall boots for a layered look that is perfect for fall.

Over-the-knee socks may remind you of private school uniforms, but this Fashionista is all runway with her look.

Spotted: Proenza Schouler fall 2010's show was full of black over-the-knee socks and thigh-highs. For a risque evening look, try wearing a pair of black over-the-knee socks with your favorite dress.
