Taylor Swift and Katy Perry have clearly been swapping spring fashion notes, with both US singers stepping out in New York yesterday working knee-high socks – in two very different ways. They’re back on the fashion map, ladies!
Taylor used a pair of maroon lovelies as a preppy outfit-updater, teaming with beige shorts, a crisp blue shirt, a matching red fedora and her trusty black D&G tote.
Ever the style chameleon, Katy teamed her over-the-knee socks with a flirty Peter Pan-collar dress before throwing on a leather biker and some ah-mazing platform heels for the perfect glam grunge accompaniment for her newly-dyed green locks.
With ASOS and cool hosiery haunt Pamela Mann offering up striped, colour block, cosy cable knit and even sheer printed tartan sock styles, you’re spoilt for choice when it comes to picking your perfect spring knee-highs.
Avoid going down the schoolgirl route by steering clear of tartan when wearing yours – instead, strap on a pair of Gucci-style disco heels, a leather skater skirt, an oversized knit and your favourite beaten leather for Perry-style cool, or edge up Taylor’s all-out American preppy look by teaming with denim cut-offs and a fedora for festival season.
