Popularized in the ‘90s thanks to Cher and Dionne in Clueless, thigh highs are perfect for a girls shopping date, taking your first driver’s test or when you’re simply rolling with the homies. Somebody tell you that thigh highs are only suitable for the fall? As if! Undoubtedly the hottest accessory this year, thigh highs are strutting their way into the springtime.
To accommodate the warmer months, get a pair of thigh highs in lighter materials to help you achieve the same trendy look without sweating your legs off. Try out a classic pair from ASOS, or a patterned or brightly colored pair from American Apparel to best help you experiment with your style. Affordable and versatile, there are plenty of options to fashionably flaunt your stuff.
Stuck on how to wear this latest fashion obsession? Here are some tips. Wear your thigh highs with a flared miniskirt, a summer dress or a pair of high-waisted shorts like this Fashionista did to show off your awesome legs. For those summer nights out, you can never go wrong with some stylish booties, or some classic pumps. For a more laid back approach, keep it casual in some flats or a pair of Chucks. Whether you’re a tall glass of water or more on the fun-sized sector of the scale, this accessory definitely helps to draw attention those underrated stems of yours. Remember, there’s a reason why women would flaunt their legs on the side of the road rather than their thumbs.
