When Britney Spears dressed in over-the-knee socks and customised school uniform for her video Hit Me Baby One More Time, I was reminded of the way I used to dress when I was in the sixth form. I still think it’s a very sexy look.
I love long socks, worn up over the knee, hinting at stockings.
These have little black bows on them and a cable-knit pattern. I like to give them a hint of sophistication by teaming them with spindly high heeled shoes.
The way the socks hug my leg streamlines them and feels comforting.
