Gigi and Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner may have walked the runway, but it was the Marc Jacobs thigh-high socks that really caught my eye in his Spring/Summer 2017 collection.
As the world discussed the controversial hot topic hair and the A-list cast of models walking the runway at Marc Jacobs’ Spring/Summer 2017 show at New York Fashion Week, my eyes were glued on something else: the socks. Oh sure, the collection featured all sorts of amazing jackets, trousers and dresses and spring…but it was the colorful and playful Marc Jacobs thigh-high socks that shot straight to my heart. As soon as the models finished their finale walk, I was itching to get a pair for myself…pronto. After all, they’re a fun and quirky way to mix up your outfit and add a nice flare of style. Only problem? These Marc Jacobs socks won’t be available until Spring 2017. *womp womp*
Fear not, though, because after some digging around and a quick Google search I discovered a collection of look-a-likes for the Marc Jacobs version, that all ring in at a fraction of a price. Even better? They’re available now!
Whether you’re in the mood for rainbow bright thigh-highs or polka dots, the internet has you covered! While searching, I also found some knee and thigh-highs that might be a bit different than the ones shown at Marc Jacobs but are equally adorable. Think lace detailing at the knee from Forever 21 or pink-cat thigh-highs from Chrissy’s, a new discover with a very to-the-point web address of KneeHighSocks.com.
Now that we’re officially into Fall, it is time to start thinking about our hosiery for the season. While the Marc Jacobs thigh-high socks are indeed wonderful, waiting till spring just won’t do when you’re looking for items to wear now.
Enjoy this round up of Marc Jacobs-inspired thigh-high socks, that are all available to order right now. These affordable knee-high and over-the-knee socks would make a nice addition to any fall wardrobe and pair perfectly with your favorite booties (or platforms) and skirt! Cher Horwitz of Clueless would absolutely approve.
