Knee socks with boots is a trend that I just started experimenting with for the first time this year...I'm kinda hooked! I love how you can toss your tights aside and substitute knee socks and boots when wearing a dress or a skirt - you're still able to stay warm, yet your whole ensemble gives off a more relaxed and effortless vibe.
I think lately I've gotten a bit socks & boots obsessed, but it's hard to slow down when this glorious combination looks so fantastic with any dress or skirt (even over jeans and leggings)! And just for an added bonus - in case you're not yet convinced - I personally think the look makes one's thighs appear slimmer too. I don't see any reason why not to take advantage of this trend, I can't believe it even took me this long to jump on the bandwagon. Knee high socks and boots are one indulgence that I do not feel guilty obsessing about - give it a try!
