September issues have brought long awaited autumn/winter collections and their campaigns outlining main trends. For clothes. And what is a beautiful outfit in this chilly season without a fine pair of tights or socks to complete and sometimes even emphasize the look?

This trend – exposed socks and knee highs – can be sported both by those ladies still enjoying warm summery rays of sun and those who happen to be in the cooler weather: just put the socks or knee highs on bare legs or on top of tights and in your favourite shoes, match them with a skirt, a dress or – why not – riding trousers as seen on the runway in Paris, Milan and New York and hit the street or a party! Check some of those looks for inspiration.
