We almost bought a pair of black thigh-highs the other day. We were going to wear them with our Wellies and our beloved Vanessa Bruno mini skirt. But then we remembered that we're 5'4'' and a size 8, and that instead of looking like the girls on the Miu Miu Fall runway, we'd look more like Scooby-Doo's Velma - and that'd be tragic. We debated the look in the office this morning, but we think you have to be supertall and superthin for thigh highs to look like anything except a sorority hazing outfit. The proportion of the sock, whether it's to the knee or above it, has to work perfectly with the shoe matched to it. And they should be paired with a pretty casual outfit, unless you're really trying to rock the Prada Fall '07 look, in which case, your dress had better be very frumpy and very expensive. Has anyone had any luck with the thigh high?
