I've been rocking the suspender tights trend before it became big in Vancouver (Oh So Vonnie introduced me to them!). Now I see a trickle of Vancouver girls wearing them from time to time when I go out or they would be asking where to buy suspender tights in shopping forums after we modeled them.
Now I spy another trend that is going to become big (or bigger) in Vancouver. That's over the knee socks!
Okay, yes it has been done in the Asian community but the way that look has been done.. it looks "Honger" (for the lack of better words). I'm not hating that particular look but it's not a style I associate myself with. I am going to incorporate over the knee socks in my wardrobe without giving off a discombobulated, contradictory and fruity vibe. I'm going to wear them with neutral toned clothing that is more streamlined and polished to make the trend more me.
My friend told me that I'm becoming more like a Honger girl with the furry faux fox tails, tights with shorts (at least they are not denim!) and now these over the knee high socks lol.. She has a good point but I reassured her that I'm not. I bought a charcoal grey and a black pair recently. I'm thinking of getting the thigh high socks that go even higher and perhaps a pair of lace over the knee socks but I'm debating if the latter is too risque. But then again, what do I care about what others think? I know a good thing when I spot it! =)
Here are some celebrities in over the knee socks that I Googled for some inspiration.
Sarah Jessica Parker
I'm surprised that the denim shorts didn't make this outfit look too sloppy
Those boots make the outfit too casual. I would have worn them with flats or heeled booties
Will you be giving over the knee socks a try?
