I noticed that, a few weeks ago, Madewell had some absolutely gorgeous knee-high stockings (and tights) in a gingko pattern. They’re down to lucky sizes, and mostly just in white and burgundy (with the black all sold out) — but it made me wonder: are knee-high stockings coming back in?

These became a lot less common during the days of ankle pants, I think — but now that full-length trousers are coming back they may have their place again. After all, these can be a great option when you want to wear shoes other than boots with full-length trousers, and don’t want to go bare-legged because it’s too cold — but don’t want something that will be too thick for your heels or flats. Enter knee-high stockings…

(There are, of course, more mid-calf stockings, also, like these, which I’ve seen styled with some work outfits such as the mid-calf stockings shown with heeled Mary Janes in this recent J.Crew photo… but what are your thoughts on those shorter lengths, readers?)

The featured set of four knee-high stockings is under $15 for all four pair, at Amazon.
