Most of the Cooler months don't allow for my upper thighs to come out and play (any months for that matter). While I've loved this look for 3 seasons now, I have to alter it a bit. If you find yourself with "thicker thighs" pop on a pair of textured, solid black or fishnet hose with those over the knee socks. If your legs are shorter, slide those socks down two inches so they hit right above your knee. Don't assume you can't (or can) wear this trend, just make a few changes. The shorter and thicker you are, the worse this trend looks.
