I saw them on the runways for Fall 2010 and now I'm starting to see them on celebrities ...
They were last in style back in '94 when I was in college, and at that time, I LOVED them. I wore them to class all the time and thought they were a cute way to cover a little extra leg.
Now, though, I think I'm a little too old for this trend. Honestly, while Carrie Underwood is absolutely gorgeous and one of my favorite celebs (even if she did become a bit of a Bridezilla), I think this particular outfit would have worked better without the thigh highs. Carrie works out all the time and has great legs -- she should show them off when she wears shorts!
What do you think about thigh highs?
Will you wear them?
If not, I have a real life alternative ...
More specifically, knee socks under casual boots!
I saw the look on Jennifer Aniston in Marley and Me (and looked everywhere for a still to show you of the outfit, but to no avail!) and have been wanting to copy it ever since.
She wore a denim skirt, I believe, with casual, low-heeled boots and heavy cable knee socks peeping just a few inches out of the top. I've been looking for a pair to go under my distressed black clog boots ever since. It's such a cute look with a skirt, and since knee socks were on the runway models for fall even more often than thigh highs, I think it's an age-appropriate nod to the trend.
What about you? Would you wear thigh highs or knee socks this fall if the look goes mainstream?
