show a little leg

This outfit was from a couple weeks ago - you saw this look in a previous post when I was introducing you guys to the amazing men's grooming retailer The Motley. I wore this outfit when I went to visit them at Unique NYC show. I can't get over how amazing their stuff is (if you haven't checked out The Motley, go NOW!).

I have a huge thing for over the knee socks this season, and they're totally wearable since this winter has been pretty mild for Northeast standards. I'm doomed to pants and leggings during the work week, so when the weekend hits or an after hours social event is in the plans, my go-to has been some cozy thigh highs and a dress or skirt.

There is definitely a thin line that can make thigh highs too risque, so make sure your socks are a cozy knit - a soft merino wool or a ribbed knit give them a casual feel. Its also a good bet to sport a flowy dress or a chunky sweater, but keep in mind that there's no point in wearing over the knee socks if you're not showing a little bit of flirtatious skin, so let me see those legs!

love your lenny kravitz scarf! and i just wanted to say that there is definitely a point in wearing over the knee socks if you aren't going to show any skin... i love layering OTK socks with tights or leggings, especially now that the weather is NOT so mild anymore =D
