Down with panty hose and tights! I'm a thigh high girl. Even in the winter. That's why I was so excited to discover soccer socks! Buy them a size larger than you need and they will come up over your knees. Cute and warm. Mine had a corporate logo so I used a black sharpie to color it in.
If you want something with a little more panache try brightly colored cotton tights and cutting off the legs just below the crotch. Voila! Winter stockings that will really keep you warm.
