Would You Wear Knee-High Socks like Ashlee Simpson?

Shedding their school girl image, knee-high hosiery is getting a fresh update from some of Hollywood’s most stylish starlets. Ashlee Simpson keeps it sporty, pairing them with her low-top Converse sneakers. Jessica Alba playfully wears them in a contrasting color over a pair of black opaque tights. And Rihanna keeps it sexy in thigh-high pair that show just a hint of skin. We’re not completely sold on this trend, but we’d love to hear from you. Tell us: Would you wear this look?

No way! While hosiery is always hot for the Fall/Winter season, these most certainly are not.

I personally wouldn’t wear knee high socks, but Ashlee looks cute in them!

This question was asked about a year ago on this blog. I have worn knee-high socks and will still wear them (although not with sneakers!).

Michelle on

Wearing knee socks is great for in the winter/fall, but I don’t like these socks on Ashley. They make her look childish and her legs look fat, though she’s skinny as hell.

Jenny on

They would’nt look good on me like that. I don’t think that look looks so great on her. I’m sure she could wear them a better way!

Rachel on

What was she thinking?

Julia on

i dont like it at all it makes her legs look really short

Sara on

Totally! Although not black! I wear white knee highs with a short skirt and it drives the boys crazy!

Lori on

No way! She is such a little old bag lady!

Dan C on

I wear black knee highs with shorts like the kind Ashlee has on,but I think they look hotter on her!

Mark on

I wear opaque knee socks and shorts all the time.Like Ashlee, I wear low cut gym shoes. If you have legs that look sharp girls and guys should wear them.
