History of overknee socks
Before the 1960 knee high socks were mostly considered practical items. In the '60's they became part of the feminist movement, when liberal women had a fresh approach to fashion that underlined their independency. During this period feminist women were wearing short dresses, short hair, high heels and high socks. Icons such as Twiggy were wearing short shorts, miniskirts and white or pastel toned knee-high socks ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘Š

In the decades that followed, the knee-high remained a wardrobe staple and made its way into casual, academic and sporting outfits worldwide. In the 90's overknee socks were worn all the time in cult film Clueless, and since then the knee-high has gained iconic fashion status ๐Ÿ’…๐ŸปโœŒ๏ธ๐Ÿ’œ
