Knee highs (also known as knee high socks, and thigh high socks) are a type of stockings with an elastic top that reaches the knee.
Roll up the knee high all the way down to the toe, and then gently place your foot into the garment. Make sure the toe is aligned with the sock to ensure it will go on evenly and straight. Carefully roll the knee high up your knee; the comfort top (of the sock) should sit below the kneecap.
Put on the second stocking in the same way as the first. Stand with your legs parallel, possibly in front of a mirror. The two stockings should go equally high, and the top of the socks should be horizontal and level.
Of course! Since this hosiery is shorter than thigh highs and thinner than most socks, you can wear them under your pants for an extra layer with your shoes. On a cold winter day, wear your favorite pants, a pair of SILVIA knee highs, and an essential pair of heels to keep your feet feeling cozy and warm.
Knee highs can be worn with a variety of shoes: flats, heels and heeled boots, flat boots, and ankle booties. During the winter months, wear a pair of knee high socks with your winter boots or rain boots for maximum warmth and comfort.
No, knee highs do not have sizes. Since VienneMilano uses superb material, our knee highs will conform to your legs and feet; therefore, only needing one size for all.
In contrast, knee highs are very different from over the knee socks...
Over the knee socks (also known as OTK) are a type of stockings that cover the feet and legs up to the top of the knee. They are considered the in-between length of thigh highs and knee highs.
Roll up the over the knee sock all the way down to the toe, and then gently place your foot into the garment. Attentively, roll the over the knee sock up your knee; ideally, the comfort top (of the sock) should end above the kneecap. Put on the second stocking in the same way as the first.
Over the knee highs can be worn all year long. During the warm summer months, casually wear your knee highs with fashionable flats, a mini-skirt and a loose tee for a playful look. In the winter, pair your knee high socks with VienneMilano sheer thigh highs, booties, a sweater dress, and a cozy cardigan. You can wear knee highs with a long pencil skirt and a blouse. Either outfit is bound to be eye-catching and fabulous!
Absolutely! Over the knee socks look best when paired with dresses and skirts as you will be able to show your gorgeous gams off without showing too much.
Over the knee socks are very versatile in style and can be worn with flats, sneakers, heels, and boots.
No, over the knee socks do not have sizes. Since VienneMilano uses fabulous and durable material, our over the knee socks will conform to your legs and feet; therefore, only needing one size for all.
Over the knee socks are very different from thigh highs. Thigh highs are a type of hosiery that are made with an elastic or silicone band at the top. This form of hosiery should sit on your legs without the need for garter belts. Proper thigh highs should come all the way up to the top of your leg - approximately three fingers away from the inseam.
Do not be fooled by other brands that erroneously call over-the-knee socks as thigh highs. Empower yourself by becoming an informed consumer who knows the proper name for the proper fashion accessories.
