Trend: Over the knee socks

If your looking for a way to be incredibly on trend and even more under budget knee high socks (or over the knee) is perfect. You don't need a new dress, new skirt, new heels...all you need is a pair of these in whatever colour you desire and your good to go. Me, I'll be wearing Primark's knitted pink pairs with fringed booties. Over the knee socks are just as good casual as they are dressy. Perfect with your favourite boots and shorts or skirts or baggy dresses, even more perfect when the night comes with towering heels and fitted dresses.Versatility like that guarantees value for money. Over the knee socks definitely triumph over tights in comfort, style and value for money (none of those nasty ladders). For a designer take on this trend see Alexander Wang's spring 2010 Ready-to-Wear Collection. Celebrity fans of this trend include Vanessa Hudgens, Jessica Alba, The Saturdays Molly and Frankie, Katy Perry and Agyness Deyn. To find your own perfect pair on a budget I recommend trying Primark and Topshop.
