Rockin’ the Stockings!!

Even though I’ve been a professional designer for going on 30 years (yes, really), I can’t help but have an eye-rolling moment every now and then over the looks I see on the runway and the absence of reality and/or common sense behind the look displayed.

Case in point: All of the shorts and minis seen on the runway for this, the winter of 2014, one of the coldest in recent memory.

However, some of the designers who showed this look were thinking realistically when they paired these tiny togs with lovely, long socks, over the knee and up to the thigh.

They’re preaching to the choir here, because I’ve designed several of these hosiery styles for White Lies Designs, and now knitters can make their own over-the-knee beauties at home.

All are knitted from the toe up and can be tried on as you knit. I’ve used Cascade Fixation which contains 3% elastic so it hugs the leg and stays up nicely. They’re sexy and they’re also smart.
