Since living in Syracuse means wearing winter clothes almost all year long, the window for wearing skirts and dresses is very limited. This year knee high socks have been making appearances on the runway and are quickly becoming a popular trend. Not only is this look flattering but when you wear skirts or dresses in the fall or winter, they are practical and will keep your legs warm!
