So I’m intrigued by this over-the-knee sock thing. They look chic enough with a short hem of any kind. but here is the question: are stick-thin legs a MUST for this look?

i would wear them over tights.
but i think it depends whether or not it would look good with the outfit.

I ordered a pair online and they look just weird-my legs aren’t even that fat, but there was just a bunch spilling over the top where the high sock ended. Maybe they were just too tight and I needed to get a bigger size-I’m going to try some in stores to see

I love over the knee socks! I think they look great with short hems- no tights required. I also think that they look really good on stick-thin legs but they look good on legs of any size also

No, you don’t need to be stick thin to pull off the over the knee socks look. I love to wear over the knee socks over jeans with tall boots, so you can just see the top. of course, the socks have to go with the jeans :)

color is definitely a factor! I think sticking with darker colors (black, burgundy, navy) is the most flattering option.

I can’t wear socks above my knees because I think I look too short wearing them like that. I can wear them up to my knees,though. They still look the same.

I personally think they look very flattering on all body types the trick is making sure they aren’t too tight, don’t want muffin top on your legs LOL but too loose doesn’t work either as they have to stay up, I really like forever 21’s! :)

Naw. As long as you find a pair of socks that are wide enough for your legs, go for it!
