Hello, it’s me Bad to the Blonde. Thigh high stockings are a cheap way to show some skin with your sweater dress this winter. This outfit proves grunge can be sexy with the right accessory. I am not one do things on a budget but thigh high stockings under $10 has two less 0s than $1,100 Bottega Veneta lug boots that are on my wishlist. That’s simple math and a journalist by trade. Here is how to style thigh high socks.
The sweater has a sexy sleeveless update this season
The sweater dress has some [sexy] competition this season. Oversized, sweater vests, and sleeveless shoulders have long been part of the grunge aesthetic. Hopefully you’ve been back to the gym or working out at home because sculpted arms aren’t just for showing off in summer. Size up and get ready to look surprisingly slim.
A sleeveless sweater has a slight disheveled look that is great for layering but looks even better solo. Technically, this H&M sweater is a tank and not a vest. Either way, style it just like a muscle tank and show off your favorite bra – finally! A slightly lose silhouette allows you to show some skin to create a variety of looks while staying slouchy. It’s time to replace your sweats with a sweater. Sorry, not sorry.
Take it up high
Stockings are not just for Victoria’s Secrets supermodels. And you won’t need a garter belt to wear this outfit. Thigh highs are slimming, sexy and so stylish when worn with a sweater. To pull it off you need to balance the turtleneck and tall socks by showing some skin. Gold jewelry, like a chunky chain bracelet and huggie hoops, takes grunge to glamorous. And don’t forget a pair of Docs. The whole look is a little rebellious, yet sleek. Your leggings with collect dust in the drawer when you wear tall socks to transition a dress, skirt or shorts to winter with this style tip.
Styling chunky boots with socks
As a style blogger, I don’t want to blend in with the rest of the blogger factory. Hell, I only own no show socks! Last winter, I styled Doc Martens with tights for a feminine take on the combat boot trend. Now this look proves that lingerie has a place in the sheets and the streets. Thigh high stockings are more appealing when the lights go down than white crew socks…if you know what I mean. I’m all about things pulling “double duty”! Thigh highs offer a little bit of coverage to take oversized to ho, ho, sexy. [I’m ridiculous.]
Grunge isn’t exactly sexy but styling chunky boots with this simple accessory is surprisingly chic. Pair thigh high socks with boots for a look that mimics over the knee boots. The right amount of sex appeal is still stylish and will make you standout. Hence why thigh highs are a must-try.
