For this week's Would You Wear?, I decided to focus on one of fall's most anticipated trends: over-the-knee socks. These tall stockings are predicted to be a huge trend for fall 2010. Although they've been hip for a little while now, they will be insanely popular this fall.

Last year, Blake Lively caused a ruckus in the fashion world when her character Serena van der Woodson on Gossip Girl wore her thigh-high socks to school.  Since then, celebs such as Alexa Chung (pictured above), Kirsten Dunst, and Rihanna have been photographed wearing them as well.

Personally, I think thigh-high socks are one of this fall's most wearable styles. They look fabulous with flat boots, heels, skirts, dresses, shorts and rompers. They can easily transition from fall to winter and can be pulled off no matter what your personal style may be!

These socks are also an easy-to-wear trend for college girls on the go. For an effortless, adorable look, throw them on with a dress and messenger bag and you're good to go to class!
