Hello, my little ones! How are you doing?
I firmly believe that every woman should have at least a few good high socks in her wardrobe, be it so we can stay warm and cozy at home while also feeling cute, or to perfectly match that outfit on those pretty winter days. So today I am going to be talking about Thigh High Socks and how you can use them to make your outfits even cuter! I am going to show some options you can use and what type of Thigh High Socks will match your outfit of choice.
Different Styles of Thigh High Socks
There are basically two styles of Thigh High Socks, the ones that stay up on their own, usually called Hold-Ups or Stay-Ups, and the ones that don’t thus needing garter belt or garters to stay in place.
Hold-Ups are mostly made of elastic, nylon, silicone or Lycra, so it grips and stays in place. The ones relying on garters are made with non-stretch fibres, and that is why they don’t stay up.
Both of them are super cute and depending on the style you choose, they can look very kawaii. But keep in mind that using garter belts will almost always make your outfit look sexier, which is also very okay as long as you are comfortable with it. Every person is different and should embrace their unique styles, and as long as you feel comfortable, you can wear whatever makes you feel good and happy. ♥
When to Wear Your Thigh High Socks
You can wear high socks to basically any occasion, as long as you match the right one with your outfits. You can wear darker, more neutral coloured ones to work, more colourful ones for date nights and parties, and lighter coloured ones for more kawaii and sweet looks.
The fabric and thickness also matter. The thicker and fluffier the socks, the cuter you will look, and the thinner and more delicate, the sexier you will look.
Always pay attention to the weather! If it’s colder outside, make sure you use your thicker ones, so you don’t get cold. Same goes for when it’s hot outside; you are going to want to leave those fluffy bunny socks at home. 😉
Some Combinations For Your Outfits
The limit really is your imagination:
- You can wear a thick one with a mini dress and a cardigan;
- A more delicate one with shorts and a sweater;
- A fancy and chic one with a tube skirt and a nice shirt;
- A lacy one to give that extra shine to an everyday outfit;
- To warm up your legs on top of that extra-thin tights;
- With some sneakers for a more sporty outfit;
- For that more than classic School Girl look (my favourite!);
- And of course, you can always use your extra fluffy one with just a t-shirt, dancing and singing in your bedroom. 😀
My Personal Favorites
Here are some of the best ones I found during my research:
Leg Avenue Women’s Over The Rainbow Opaque Thigh High Stockings
These babies are made of 85% Nylon and 15% Spandex, which means they are going to stand in place just fine!
They are very comfortable and a little thicker, so you could match them with some shorts and All-Stars or a t-shirt dress and a cardigan. The rainbow looks very cute but simple, so it won’t take too much attention from your outfit.
You can take a look at them right here and see them for yourself.
3 Pairs Women Long Striped Thigh High Socks
This kit comes with three adorable striped socks made of Polyester, a black, a light blue and a light pink.
You can choose between larger or smaller stripes. They are a little thinner than the rainbow ones, and you could match them with your Lolita Outfits or even go for the sporty look with sneakers.

Childlike Me Women’s Cartoon Fuzzy Socks Over Knee High Socks
I absolutely adore these. These socks are super fuzzy, warm, soft and comfortable, without mentioning just plain ADORABLE.
There are many options you can choose from. Including pandas, unicorns, bears and my beautiful Totoro ♥
They are made of 98% polyester and 2% spandex, very warm, and I highly recommend using them with that t-shirt you always wear when you don’t want to get in your pyjamas. You know which one I’m talking about. 😉

On the fancier side, we have these simple yet elegant ones, with the cute bows. You get your choice of white, black and red, with some combinations between those colours for the bows.
Made of 100% Nylon, they will easily hold up on your legs, but they also go very well with garter belts, giving them a very sexy and fancy look. You can match them with a black tube skirt, a nice professional (you know, grown up?) shirt and some high heels, or even a delicate round dress and flats, to show a more doll-like style.
Take a look at them here and see what you think.

Be it for upgrading your outfit, building the whole thing around it, or just staying cozy and warm at home; Thigh High Socks are always great to have around. I have many of those myself, and I wear them every time I can. They make me feel so much cuter and cozy, and just happier in general!
To end this post, I would like to show you a picture of me wearing my Totoro stockings. They are made to look like Thigh High Socks and are just plain adorable! (You probably noticed already at this point, but I am completely in love with Ghibli Studio and Totoro ♥)
