Mini skirts should be reserved for the youth, but this look is VERY youthful. For knitted knew high socks, you will need a dress with a short hemline. It can be fitted or full skirted, but it must be above the knee, otherwise you lose the effect of the knee high socks. There are some great textured ones on the market now. Mind the coat you wear with this option. A long, serious coat can elevate this look to sexy sophistication.
